    What’s Next After JEE Main? Explore Different Pathways and Choices

    by BML Munjal University June 6, 2023

    What after JEE Main is a question that haunts myriad aspirants who sit for the national level engineering entrance exam to test their capabilities to study across the best engineering colleges across the country. Numerous minds stay in dilemma once they appear in JEE Main for concerns like what if I don’t secure the JEE Main cut off or what are my career options after JEE Main? The story doesn’t end here. Furthermore, admission seekers keep worrying about aspects like, which colleges will I be eligible to apply for admission?” Or how to apply for the counselling based on my JEE Main scores?

    The JEE Main entrance exam is conducted to get admission to various undergraduate engineering courses such as BE/BTech, BArch, and BPlan in IITs, NITs, IIITs and GFTIS. In addition, several private institutes also consider the JEE Main result for admission to UG engineering courses. However, most students are confused about what to do after JEE Main.

    Thus, to address many such aspects of what after qualifying JEE Main exam, this article comes to your rescue. Read through it and know what are your admission chances or what are your career options after JEE Main.

    Scenario 2 – What after JEE Main result?If you don’t qualify for JEE Advanced – JoSAA counselling 2022 for NIT+ System

    In another case scenario, if you don’t qualify for JEE Advanced, then admission to participating institutes of JEE Main is the alternate option for you. Don’t worry, the participating institutes of JEE Main are a good bet too. These are also government/govt. funded institutes (NITs, IIITs and CFTIs) of levels 2, 3, and 4 respectively, after the premium IITs. However, the requirement for admission to these institutes is securing the JEE Main qualifying cut-off. Post the JEE Main result declaration, candidates need to check their results and know the status – if they have secured the qualifying cutoff of JEE Main. In case they have, then they need to further register themselves for JoSAA counselling to complete the admission process at NIT+ System.
