Engineering has always been one of the most popular education streams in the present times, and every year hundreds of thousands of students pursue Non-medical/Engineering subjects during their class 11th and class 12th education.
Now, after the students graduate from the school, they wish to gain admission into the most coveted engineering colleges in the country to kick-start their professional careers. As the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE Main) is the most popular entrance exam, more than 10 lakh students attempt it every year.
Out of all those students around 2.5 Lakhs are selected for various engineering colleges across the country. The rest of the students fight it out to gain admission into some of the other reputed engineering institutes like IIIT, CFTIs, NITs through the JoSAA counselling.
Even then there are various students who could not gain admission into any other engineering institute and then again start preparing for the next JEE.
But with multiple private engineering colleges conducting their separate entrance exams, students need not wait another year to clear the JEE.
They can now attempt the other entrance exams and secure admission into some of the most well-known private engineering colleges. Here are 5 top engineering entrance exams other than JEE, that engineering aspirants must consider:
