Failed To Crack JEE 2023? Five Other Engineering Entrance Exams You Can Apply For
On April 29, the National Testing Agency (NTA) declared the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Main Result 2023, where 43 candidates scored a perfect 100 percentile in the overall merit list. Students who meet or exceed the cut-off marks can apply for the JEE Advanced 2023 exam, with registration starting on April 30. A staggering 9.4 lakh students participated in JEE Main this year, but despite their efforts, some may not have been successful in cracking the exam. If this applies to you, don't lose heart as there are several other engineering entrance exams available for you to consider.
One of these options is the BITSAT, a computer-based online entrance exam conducted by the Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani. It's a highly competitive exam that assesses a student's knowledge of physics, chemistry, mathematics, English, and logical reasoning. The exam is conducted in multiple slots, and the best score out of all the attempts is considered for admission.
Another option is the VITEEE, an online entrance exam conducted by the Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT), which includes questions on physics, chemistry, mathematics, aptitude, and English. The duration of VITEEE is 150 minutes.
The SRMJEEE, a computer-based test conducted by SRM University for admission to its engineering programs, is another option, with around 1 lakh candidates applying for the entrance examination every year. The exam comprises 125 questions, with Phase 2 and Phase 3 of SRMJEEE 2023 yet to be held. The deadline to apply for the second and third phases is June 2 and July 17, respectively.
COMEDK UGET is a state-level entrance exam conducted by the Consortium of Medical, Engineering, and Dental Colleges of Karnataka (COMEDK). The duration of the COMEDK UGET is 3 hours, and it's essential to check the eligibility criteria, application process, registration fee, exam schedule, brochure, and others before applying for these exams.
Lastly, there is the National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA), which is scheduled to be conducted on June 3 and July 9 (for phase 2 and 3 exams). Once cleared, this exam will enable students to secure admission to various colleges across the country that offer a BArch degree. The duration of the national entrance test will be 3 hours. Again, it's important to check the eligibility criteria, application process, registration fee, exam schedule, brochure, and others before applying for these exams.
