The necessity of earning a living, that too in a dignified manner, has intrigued students to take up a career in engineering after the class 12th exams. Over the past few decades, no other career choices have been so fruitful as compared to engineering. This excellent record showcases the interests of students taking up engineering as their career choice. Certainly, it is well-accepted by almost all meritorious students who dream of pursuing their favourite engineering courses at the IITs (Indian Institutes of Technology). To get into the IITs require the minimum qualification, i.e. to clear the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main.
5 Worthwhile Opportunities for Students after Qualifying JEE Main
Qualifying the JEE Main entrance examination bequeaths an aspirant a wide myriad of opportunities. Here’s a list created by a group of industry experts to give budding engineers an insight into the career scope after cracking the JEE Main 2020 exam.
- Ticket to JEE Advanced Exam
JEE Advanced is the next level entrance examination to get into the IITs. Students who crack the JEE Main exam and manage to rank amongst the top 2.24 lakh aspirants will be allowed to appear in the Joint Entrance Examination Advanced exam. The IIT JEE Advanced exam 2020 will be conducted in two compulsory phases – Paper I and Paper II. There will be three (3) important sections – Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. All the questions will be compulsory, objective-type. Only after clearing JEE Main and Advanced the candidates will be placed in one of the 23 IITs across India.
- NITs Make Perfect Alternatives to IITs
Indeed, not everyone makes it to the IITs.
However, your preparation, your hard work, and all the efforts would not go in vain even though you didn’t score enough for the Indian Institutes of Technology. Such students can always contemplate getting admission into the NITs. The National Institutes of Technology are neither lacking in imparting quality education. NITs are the second best autonomous public institutes of higher education in the country.
- When Government Colleges Are Too Hard to Resist
The JEE Main score is given preference for admission to various Government Funded Technical Institutes (GFTIs). The Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) administers the admission procedure for GFTIs. Those who have cleared the NTA JEE Main test should give it a try. However, the seat allotment is subject to merit.
- Private Colleges Considering JEE Main Score
Life doesn’t end for engineering students if they don’t get accepted by the above colleges. They still have a bright career ahead. Some of the top-notch private colleges that accept JEE Main qualifiers are Amity School of Engineering (Noida), Graphic Era University (Dehradun), Amrita School of Engineering (Coimbatore), Galgotias College of Engineering and Technology (Greater Noida), Birla Institute of Technology (Mesra), Chandigarh University (Chandigarh), Chaitanya Bharathi Institute of Technology (Hyderabad) and Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (Mumbai).
- Learn Advance Programming Languages
Your chance of studying advance programming languages like Python, Ruby on Rails, Browser Coding, and Ethical Hacking at the best technical institutes in India becomes higher when you make it to the JEE Main qualifying list. Students who wish to work for big software development companies including prototyping, language development, web applications, and gaming must study Python. This is a high-level programming language and has automatic memory management and dynamic features, which make it apt for various applications.
