Admission Process

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.

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.
