Admissions to IIT are done through Joint Entrance Examination (JEE), an all India common engineering entrance examination of objective pattern which is conducted for admission in various engineering colleges and courses all over the country. It is regarded internationally as one of the most challenging engineering admission tests.
JEE consists of two parts, JEE Main and JEE Advanced. JEE-Advanced is for admission to Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), while the JEE-Main exam is for admission to National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs), Centrally Funded Technical Institutes (CFTIs).

Hard work to meet your own goals. In this section, we will cover our recommendations plus share what other IITians say that helped them.
What is the IIT JEE?
The Indian Institutes of Technology Joint Entrance Examination (IIT-JEE) is an annual engineering college entrance examination in India. It was used as the sole admission test by the 23 Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs). The examination was organised each year by one of the various IITs, on a round robin rotation pattern. It had a very low admission rate (about 10,000 in 660,000 in 2012), and was thus recognised as one of the toughest examinations in the world.
In 2013 it was replaced by the two-phase Joint Entrance Examination. From 2017, IITs will start conducting JEE internationally to give admission to international students.
