IIT-JEE is the dream exam for practically majority of the 12th pass students in India with an aim to give the perfect shape to their future. However, IIT JEE is not just another exam which one can pass without proper preparation and skillset. The aspirants have to go through one of the most strenuous preparation of their lifetime.

JEE conducts two exams in-order to select candidates for admissions into the elite-most engineering colleges in India, grouped as IITs. Firstly, the aspirants have to qualify a preliminary level exam named as JEE Main & then appear for the advanced level exam to bag a seat in the IITs. Every year, roughly 11-12 lakhs aspirants compete for around 11,300 seats available for admission in IITs. Due to the fierce competition, each year IIT graduates are recruited by big multi billion dollar companies like Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Oracle, Intel, IBM, LinkedIn, and many others. A seat in IITs guarantees great job opportunities, high pay package and of course, a bright future.

Nowadays, a number of non-IIT colleges have proved their mettle by providing a more promising career than a number of newer IITs. Hence, the students who unfortunately couldn’t get a seat in IITs need not be discouraged and opt for these engineering colleges of India, which do not have an IIT tag but the future is no less promising.
