What options JEE Mains and JEE Advance will open for you?

After the 12th standard examination, the students who are looking forward to a career in engineering, for them JEE is the best choice. Lakhs of candidates appear for IIT JEE every year for pursuing engineering. The assessment consists of two phases which are the JEE main and JEE advance, and the examination is conducted every year during January, April, and May. Out of the 2,24,00 students who clear the JEE main are eligible to appear for the JEE advance. But the question remains is what about the students who fail to clear the JEE main? Well, there is a lot of career options for the students that they can pursue after their JEE examination.

Career options after JEE

Out of the 1.5 million students who appear for the JEE, only 1.2 million candidates make it through the JEE main, and the numbers get further depreciated after JEE advance. The primary objective for all the students who appear for the JEE is to get enrolled in IIT. But, there are only 36,000 IIT seats that are available but what about the rest of the students out of the 1.2 million students who appear for the examination?

Well, there are still plenty of career options left for the students who have appeared for the JEE examination. If you qualify for the JEE mains and register your name amongst the 2.24 lakhs, then the next hurdle that you need to cross is the JEE Advance.

The JEE advance will be held in two different phases which are the Advance paper I and advance paper II. Regardless of whether you are pursuing Engineering or Architecture, you will need to appear for both of the papers. The JEE advance qualifier will be based on the marks obtained from both of the papers.

But even if you don’t qualify for the IIT, there are still career options left for your such as the NITs. For the students who have failed to achieve the qualifying marks for getting admitted in IIT, they can apply for the NIT. There is hardly any difference between IIT and NIT in terms of the career option after graduating from any of them. There are more than 17k  vacant seats in NIT where one can get admitted if they fail to qualify for the IIT.

And if you fail to grab a seat in the NIT, then you can apply for the Various IIITs and the other government-funded colleges. Moreover, there are lakhs of private engineering colleges all over India. So, if you fail to grab a seat in your dream colleges which are the IIT and NITs, then you should get admitted in the private or other government colleges instead of wasting a year.

And apart from JEE, there are plenty of other engineering entrance exams which you could apply for such as the UPSEE, KEAM, VITEE, BITSAT, WBJEE, MHTCET, KCET, APEAMCET, VTUEEE and EAMCET. Each of these exams is meant for particular states.

But, if you still aspire to get admitted in the  IIT, then take a year break and in this one year, prepare yourself for the best so that you can clear both the JEE main as well as JEE advance. The candidates should work on each and every mistake that they have made in their first try. Working on their past mistakes will help them to prepare for the best during the next attempt.
