JEE Mains 2014 Qualified Students – Admission to Government Colleges
JEE 2014 has been completed and students are waiting for the results of JEE Advanced 2014. Those who will clear the cut-off and the rest of the criteria will be eligible for admissions into the IITs and ISM Dhandbad.
But it is also a fact that everyone won’t make it to the IITs. There are only 9,647 seats available in the sixteen IITs all over India. Around 1,50,000 students appeared for the JEE Advanced 2014 out of which only top 10,000 around students will get admissions based on the result of JEE Advanced. Those who will miss it this time can try again next year. There are two attempts allowed in JEE Advanced and that too in consecutive years.
But the good thing is that now students can get admissions to various non-IIT institutions in India based on their combined score of JEE Mains and class 12th results. Various colleges and institutions like NITs, IIITs and some other central and state funded colleges are admitting students to their undergraduate courses based on the JEE Mains and class 12th score. Merit is prepared by taking into account 60% of the JEE Mains score and 40% class 12th normalized score and willing students are allocated colleges and streams based on that merit list.
There are 30 National Institute of Technology (NITs) which participate in JEE Mains. There are around 16,000 total seats and students can take admissions to them based on their JEE Mains 2014 score.
Then there are Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIITs), IIITM and IITDM which take students based on their JEE Mains score. These are all government funded colleges and they consider the score of JEE Mains in their counseling.
There also exist 14 other Central or State Funded Institutions in which undergraduate admissions are done on the basis of JEE Mains score.
Though you may also apply to these colleges independently and clear the admission test, if required, to take admissions in various undergraduate courses.
Some Self-Financed Institutions/Private Universities or colleges also take into account the score you achieved in the JEE Mains exam. A couple of such universities are Lovely Professional University, Punjab and Manav Rachna International University. They too are famous for their quality education, facilities and high percentage of placements.
So the thing is that it is not the end of the world if you are not able to qualify the JEE Advanced exam. Of course, clearing the exam would take you into a whole new and higher level. But even those who have cleared the JEE Mains exam have a vast variety of options available before them.
