Every year, so many candidates take the JEE Mains exam. Not all of them pass the JEE Main.
What are they supposed to do? Where may they apply to be admitted and study engineering? What should JEE’s backup plan be? What other examinations may students take besides the JEE?
In this blog, we will get the answers to these emerging questions. That will help with clarity of several things that one needs to be aware of.
There is an old proverb, from Latin, that says, “Venture not all in one ship.” Or don’t trust all your goods to one ship. It suggests that you should not devote all your resources and time to a single task. Always be ready for the worst-case scenario and have backup and other plans on hand. One bad day might destroy all your hard work.
The major objective of this blog is to provide a backup plan if you do not pass JEE Main, as well as a list of engineering admission tests other than JEE.
What should you do if you do not clear JEE Mains?
If you do not clear JEE Main, you have 2 choices: walk out and retake JEE to obtain admission to IITs, NITs, and IIITs; or try to get into state or private engineering institutions through other entrance tests.
One should be aware of the fact. While studying for the JEE Mains, students should also apply for BITSAT and state CETs like WBJEE, VITEEE, MHTCET, COMEDK, and others. Considering that most of these entrance tests begin their registration even before JEE Main.
The curriculum for all these exams is nearly identical, with questions primarily drawn from physics, chemistry, and mathematics. If you understand your JEE concepts, you will be able to pass the BITSAT and other state common admission exams.
Are there any other exams to take besides the JEE?
If we take aside the JEE exam, there are other exams that are also conducted, so there is a choice available to students other than JEE too, such as:
OJEE (Odisha Joint Entrance Examination)
- Yes! It is essential to understand what the OJEE examination is for and why one should take it as a second option to JEE to ensure a bright future.
- The Odisha Joint Entrance Examination (OJEE) is a centralized state-government exam for admission to Odisha’s various private and public medical, engineering, and management institutions.
- The test is taken after completing the 12th grade, diploma, graduate degree, and postgraduate degree for admission to graduation lateral entry in B. Tech, B. Arch, B. Pharm, BDS (also known as Bachelors), MBA, MCA, M.Pharm, and M.Tech programs.
- Following the launch of the All-India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) and the JEE, the MBBS and B.Tech courses were dropped from the OJEE.
- Graduate and postgraduate degree holders may apply for seats in MBA, MCA, PGCM, PGDM, M. Pharm, and MTech programs offered by numerous Odisha institutions.
- The pattern of the exams in OJEE varies, and an individual must thoroughly understand it according to the specific subjects in which they wish to achieve.
- The pattern information, including a complete list of subjects, is accessible on the official website, so keep this in mind before beginning exam preparation. As a result, this is important. Based on the grading system each topic consists of unique pattern.
Other than OJEE, there are some other national and state level exams such as:
- BITSAT (Birla Institute of Technology and Science Admission Test)
- VITEEE (Vellore Institute of Technology Engineering Entrance Exam)
- NATA (National Aptitude Test in Architecture)
- WBJEE (West Bengal Joint Entrance Examination)
- MHTCET (Maharashtra Common Entrance Test)
- AP EAPCET (Andhra Pradesh Engineering, Agriculture, and Pharmacy Common Entrance Test)
- Kerala Engineering Architecture Medical Examination (KEAM)
- COMEDK (Consortium of Medical, Engineering, and Dental Colleges of Karnataka)
- KCET stands for Karnataka Common Entrance Test.
There are plenty of options available if you are not able to clear the JEE. All you must do is keep researching on the internet. The ultimate source for every question you have, and a backup plan to pass your exit ready is the ultimate goal.
