JEE 2019 or Joint Entrance Examination is a national level engineering entrance examination conducted at the undergraduate level for granting admission to various BE or B.Tech courses offered by 23 IITs, 31 NITs, 23 IIITs, and several GFTIs (Government Funded Technical Institutes). Apart from this, the students will be granted admissions to other government and private technical institutes based on the marks scored in IIT JEE 2019. The examination is conducted in two phases known as Mains and Advanced. Acceptance in IIT or NIT colleges is the dream destination of almost all the students with engineering bent of mind. It is one of the most prestigious examinations which draws the attention of lakhs of students. Every year around 1.4 million students prepare for this exam of which less than 1% of students fulfil their dream of pursuing higher education in the top engineering institutes in India. IIT JEE is tough to crack because of its paper pattern and enormous syllabus including 2 years of study material. However, it’s not a hard nut to crack. Smart preparation strategy, practice, regular revision and proper guidance can assure a meritorious position in IIT JEE 2019.
