IIT-JEE News: IIT-JEE will go global and be open to students from 25 countries, from the United States to Vietnam

The IIT-JEE (IIT-Joint Entrance Exam) is set to go global, with the Indian government planning to hold the exam in 25 countries from the United States to Vietnam simultaneously.

In Kuala Lumpur and Lagos, these reviews took place last year. Previously, with the cooperation of the Government of India, the IIT-JEE exams were held in 12 countries.

The countries where the exams will be conducted are: United States, Australia, South Africa, Singapore, China, Nepal, Indonesia, Malaysia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, United Arab Emirates United, among others.

About 3,900 undergraduate places and 1,300 postgraduate places will be made available to NRIs, Indians and foreign nationals studying abroad.

These places will be reserved at the best engineering institutes in the country.

According to the Union Ministry of Education, under the Direct Abroad Student Admission (DASA) scheme, these students will be admitted to the best institutes in the country.

Foreign students may be admitted to the National Institute of Technology, the National Institute of Information Technology, the School of Planning and Architecture and other technical institutions funded by the central government.

These include Triple IT and NIT, which are considered the best engineering education institutions. However, this system will not be applicable in ITIs.

Despite the fact that IITs are excluded from DASA, a large number of engineering institutions still offer these places.

In the above institutions, 15% of the seats are reserved for NRIs and international students.

The Union Ministry of Education will host international universities which in collaboration with Indian higher education institutions can offer various courses to students.

Taking this initiative, Indian ambassadors in 63 countries around the world were contacted. Some of these countries are: Japan, Netherlands, Russia, South Korea, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Spain, UK, Australia, Canada, Germany, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, Argentina, Brazil, Greece, Cyprus, Iceland and Turkey. .

The ministry says the campaign will not only help Indian higher education institutions to establish cooperation with foreign educational institutions, but also encourage foreign universities to send their students to Indian institutions.

Under the Institution of Eminence program of the Union government, many universities have been granted Institute of Eminence status. Foreign students are attracted to the institute of eminence in the country.

According to former IIT Professor DK Sharma, every year thousands of foreign nationals come to the country for admission into Indian universities.

However, the process of admitting international students to Indian institutions is still limited to a few universities in the country. But now we are trying to give it a broader form. Certainly, its advantage will be seen.

According to Professor CS Kandpal, after JEE MAINS, JEE ADVANCE exam is held. Based on the JEE Advance results, 23 IIT, 31 NIT, 23 Triple IT offer 40.00 places.

Last year, in the JEE-Advanced Paper 1 and Paper 2, about 14,1699 candidates appeared.

About 41,862 candidates had qualified for the JEE-Advance 2021. Of the qualifiers, 6,452 were women.

Significantly, 13 different languages ​​have been approved for important exams like JEE. Students aspiring to study engineering can take exams in their mother tongue at this institution.

This year, the JEE-Mains exam will take place in June and July in two phases. The first phase of the JEE Mains exam begins on June 20. The JEE Advanced Test will be conducted for students who pass the JEE Mains.

However, in many engineering and technical colleges, admissions are granted on the basis of JEE Mains merit. In such cases, international and NRI students can also be admitted on the basis of the JEE Mains exam.
