The examinations will be held in the following countries: the United States, Australia, South Africa, Singapore, China, Nepal, Indonesia, Malaysia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates, among others.
The IIT-JEE (IIT-Joint Entrance Exam) is ready to become worldwide, with the Indian government proposing to hold the exam jointly in 25 countries, ranging from the United States to Vietnam. Last year, these exams were held in Kuala Lumpur and Lagos. Previously, the IIT-JEE exams were held in 12 countries with the support of the Indian government. The examinations will be held in the following countries: the United States, Australia, South Africa, Singapore, China, Nepal, Indonesia, Malaysia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates, among others.
NRIs, Indians, and foreign nationals studying abroad will have access to around 3,900 undergraduate and 1,300 postgraduate seats. These places will be reserved at the country’s top engineering colleges. According to the Union Education Ministry, these students would be admitted to top-tier institutions in the nation under the Direct Admission of Students Abroad (DASA) system. Foreign students will be eligible to enroll at the National Institute of Technology, the National Institute of Information Technology, the School of Planning and Architecture, and other government-funded technical institutes.
These include IIIT and NIT, which are regarded as the finest engineering educational institutes in the country. This system, however, will not be applicable to IITs. Even though IITs are not included in DASA, many engineering institutions offer these seats. NRIs and overseas students are given 15% of the seats in the institutes. The union education ministry would invite multinational universities that may provide various courses to students in conjunction with India’s higher educational institutions. Indian Ambassadors in 63 countries around the world have been contacted as part of this campaign.
Japan, the Netherlands, Russia, South Korea, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Spain, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Germany, Thailand, the United Arab Emirates, Argentina, Brazil, Greece, Cyprus, Iceland, and Turkey are among those nations. According to the Ministry, the campaign would not only assist Indian higher education institutions in establishing collaboration with overseas educational institutions but would also encourage foreign universities to send students to Indian colleges. Many universities have been recognised as Institutes of Eminence under the Union government’s Institutions of Eminence initiative. Foreign students are drawn to the country’s Institute of Eminence.
As per former IIT Professor D.K. Sharma, thousands of foreign people visit India each year to enroll in Indian colleges.
However, admission of international students to Indian colleges is still restricted to a few universities in the country. However, attempts are currently being made to broaden its scope. Its advantages will undoubtedly be evident.
According to Professor C.S. Kandpal, JEE ADVANCE is held after JEE MAINS. Based on JEE Advance scores, 23 IIT, 31 NIT, and 23 Triple IT give 40,00 seats. Around 14,1699 applicants took the JEE-Advanced Paper 1 and Paper 2 last year. JEE-Advance 2021 certified around 41,862 applicants. Women accounted for 6,452 of the qualifying participants. Notably, 13 other languages have been approved for use in major exams such as the JEE. Under this programme, engineering students can take exams in their native language. The JEE-Mains test will be held in two stages this year, in June and July. The first phase of the JEE Mains test begins on June 20. Students who pass the JEE Mains will be given the opportunity to take the JEE Advanced Test.
However, admission to many engineering colleges and technical educational institutes is based on JEE Mains merit. In such instances, international and NRI candidates may be accepted based on their performance in the JEE Mains test.
