IIT alternative - Post IIT-JEE options

.
Mumbai:
You don't have to lose heart if you think that the Indian Institute of Technology Joint Entrance Exams (IIT-JEE) is difficult to clear.

There are several other engineering exams lined up in the next two months. "Don't lose heart if you think you won't be able to clear IIT-JEE. Students who appear for IIT-JEE also attempt a number of other engineering exams held at the regional level. These exams open avenues to both national and regional level engineering colleges," said Vivek Sinha, head of Career Launcher.

He added. "Exams like MHT-CET open up opportunities into regional engineering colleges. Whereas Birla Institute of Technology and Science Admission Test (BITSAT) enables you a chance to go international with their campus in Dubai apart from Goa and Rajasthan."

Education counsellors believe that cracking the other exams will certainly let students gain a toehold into an engineering education.

There are 20 National Institute of Technology (NIT) in the country that accepts the All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) scores. "The facilities and infrastructure is on par with any of the IITs. They certainly are the next best alternative for engineering aspirants," said Vivek Khanna, faculty at coaching class Resonance.

Delhi College of Engineering (DCE) which conducts its own entrance test is another lucrative option in terms of quality study and exposure. "DCE with its large campus is quiet popular with engineering students. It is a good option for engineering students," said Khanna.

With over four lakh students competing for 7,000 odd seats in IITs across the country, the IIT-JEE exam is tough to crack. Hence students are on a look out for other engineering entrance exams conducted by other institutes.
