Engineering admissions will be generally conducted based on the ranks obtained by the candidate in the entrance test conducted for the admission to engineering course. Any student who wants to get admitted to an engineering undergraduate course should complete his 12th class or intermediate or equivalent examination with mathematics, and physical sciences as subjects. Then they have to attend the entrance test.

We all know that NEET is the national entrance examination for admissions to medical courses. Unlike this, for engineering entrance, different institutions conduct different entrance tests.

The following are the important entrance test for engineering admissions.

1. JEE Main: Joint Engineering Entrance test is a national-level examination. National Testing Agency (NTA) will be conducting this test twice a year. Generally in January and April. The best among the two will be considered for JEE Advanced. It is an online examination and the duration is for 3 hours. Questions from Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry are asked. Multiple-choice questions and Numerical questions will be asked.
This is required for the students who wanted to get admitted to one of the following institutions
a. IITs (Indian Institute of Technology),
b. NITs (National Institute of Technology), and
c. CFTI (Centrally Funded Technical Institute)

2. JEE Advanced: This test is for admission to IITs. Students who cleared the JEC main and secured a ranking within the top 2,50,000 will only be allowed to sit for this examination. This examination will be conducted once a year. A tough and complicated examination. Computer-based examination.
Students should attempt three papers, Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics get 3 hour of time limit per paper. Students lose 1 mark for every wrong answer and 3 marks are awarded for every correct answer.

3. State-level examinations: There will be many colleges in the public and private sectors and they will be affiliated with some state universities. In India, different states will conduct their own entrance test for admissions to engineering courses. The following are some such entrance tests.
a) West Bengal Joint Entrance Examination (WBJEE)
b) Karnataka Common Entrance Test (KCET)
c) The Maharashtra government conducts the Maharashtra Health and Technical Common Entrance Test (MHT-CET)
d) Gujarat Common Entrance Test (GUJCET)
e) Uttar Pradesh State Entrance Exam (UPSEE)
f) Engineering Agricultural and Medical Common Entrance Test (EAMCET) is conducted in both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh

4. Private universities: There are many private universities and institutes in India. Birla Institute of Technology and Science is one such institute. KL University is a private university in AP. Like this many are there. Each private university will have its own entrance test for admission to engineering colleges. BITSAT is the examination conducted by BITS.

Any person who desires to join an engineering course should decide on the institute and then apply for the entrance test required for that institute.

To my knowledge, students interested in pursuing an engineering career in India compete fiercely for engineering admissions. The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main and Advanced, state-level engineering entrance tests, and national-level engineering entrance examinations like BITSAT, VITEEE, etc. are some of the entrance exams used to determine admission to engineering institutes in India.

Typically, there are several stages to the admissions process, with the first round depending on the results of the entrance exam, then counselling sessions, and finally rounds for seat allocation. There is fierce competition for admission to premier engineering universities in India, with thousands of applicants fighting for a small number of places. Engineering admissions in India can be a rewarding and hard process. To perform well on the admission tests, months of study and effort are needed. Students must make difficult judgements about which institutions to apply to and what courses to enrol in throughout the gruelling admissions process.

Having grown up in India, I have seen firsthand the immense interest and enthusiasm for engineering courses in the country. Every year, thousands of students from across the nation flock to engineering universities and colleges, hoping to secure a spot in some of the most prestigious engineering programs. I myself have applied to several engineering colleges in the past, and I have seen the immense competition for seats. The sheer number of applicants vying for a spot in the same program makes it difficult for even the most qualified candidates to make the cut. It's a testament to the power of engineering in India and the many opportunities it provides.
