General Category: Admissions are done on the basis of rank in the All India Manipal Entrance Test (MET) 2021.
Foreign/NRI Category: Admissions are done on the basis of marks obtained in the qualifying examination.
Note: Candidates can apply both under General and Foreign/NRI categories. Change of category from Foreign/NRI to General after admission will not be entertained under any circumstances.
B.Tech admission process for the academic session 2021-2022 will begin in the month of March or April. Almost, all the states initiate the entrance exam process for UG B.Tech admission in March/ April. B.Tech admission process in IITs, NITs, and IIITs is different from UG engineering admission process in private engineering colleges. Similarly, the B.Tech admissions in one state vary from another. Some of the key points with regard to B.Tech admission process are elaborated below -
Students must target an engineering entrance exam depending on his requirements. If a student wants to secure admission in government institutes such as IITs, NITs, IIITs and Government-Funded Technical Institutes (GFTIs), he/ she must aim for JEE Main/ JEE Advanced. Such students must be ready to relocate or migrate to the place where he gets B.Tech admission.
For example, if a student from Andhra Pradesh wants to secure admission in NIT Warangal, he/ she must be ready to migrate to Warangal after getting admission through JEE Main. Students must stay in the hostels of respective institutes or seek paid accommodation outside the campus. Students with such a mindset can aim for national-level engineering entrance exams like JEE Main/ JEE Advanced.
Similarly, students who want to gain exposure by taking admission in institutes outside their state can aim for national-level engineering entrance exams.
If a student wants to get B.Tech admission within his/ her state, it is better to aim for state-level engineering entrance exam. For example, if a student from Telangana wants to get B.Tech admission within the state, he/ she can appear for TS EAMCET exam. Such students will get engineering admission in their locality. Students who do not wish to stay in the hostel or paid accommodation and prefer to travel from home to college or college to home can aim for state-level engineering entrance exam.
From the above analysis, you might have understood that we could not find out the best entrance exam for engineering courses, as different engineering exams are bound to certain requirements of students and parents.
Here is the list of some of the popular B.Tech/ UG engineering entrance exams in India. The list will also include the engineering entrance exam dates 2021. The list of popular engineering entrance exams along with important dates will help students to keep a track of dates of different entrance exams.
