The Process For IIT Admission

Candidates should pass their PCM board exams as major subjects with an aggregate of at least 75 per cent. The credentials often vary based on reservation. NTA(National Testing Agency) conducts the JEE exams (JEE Main and JEE Advanced). The JEE Mains marks have no impact on a candidate’s rank for IIT admission, as the entire ranking depends on marks scored by the candidate in JEE Advanced test.

After the JEE has revealed advanced ranks, candidates must fill a specific stream with preferences for the various IITs. Then counselling initiates after a few days; the option that suits the score and availability of seats will contribute to seat allocation. Then applicants must confirm their seat for a certain period if they are taking admission to IIT.

Each IIT must finalize its date of admission upon registration and the procedure and documentation needed for it. All these data will be made available on the institute’s website.
