Admission Process

 

Admission Tests
The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is a common admission test for candidates seeking admission to the B.Tech programme. It is conducted by all the seven IITsin the month of April every year. Candidates who have secured 60% (5% relaxation for SC/ST/PD) marks in aggregate in their respective board examination are eligible for the test. The JEE will be a single objective type examination which will test the comprehension and analytical abilities of students. For more details refere to the JEE brochure.
More details are available at https://www.jee.iitm.ac.in

The Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an all India Examination conducted by all the IITs and IISc to identify meritorious and motivated candidates for admission to Post-graduate programmes in Engineering, Technology, Architecture and Pharmacy at National level.Information relating to GATE will be available through the announcements link and the GATE Brochure.
More details are available at https://gate.iitm.ac.in

The Joint Management Entrance Test (JMET) is a common admission test for candidates seeking admission to the MBA programme at all the IITs and IISc. However, the candidates will have to apply separately to each IIT and IISc as per their choices. The application forms and the details for each Institute are provided with the JMET booklet and brochure. The JMET is usually conducted in December every year and the results of the test are announced a month later.
More details are available at https://www.mba.iitm.ac.in

The Joint Admission Test for MSc (JAM) is a common admission test for candidates seeking admission to the 2-year M.Sc programme in physics, chemistry & mathematics at IITS; and a 3-year post B.Sc programme (MCA & M.Tech in Applied Geology / Applied Geophysics) at IIT Roorkee; and M.Sc. - Ph.D dual degree programme in Physics at IIT Kanpur.
