No hope is lost if one opts out to not appear for the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) – Advanced, as JEE main scores are also being accepted by other top ranking colleges across India.

While Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) are considered to be premier and most sought-after when it comes to studying engineering, there are other options students can explore. Some of them are ranked among the best in the world and all of them accept admissions based on JEE main score.

Although, some institutes like Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT) and Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) have their own entrance exam and may not consider JEE main as their primary mode for enrolling students.

According to the Ministry of Human Resource and Development’s National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF), here is the list of colleges that will accept JEE main scores for admission to engineering and architecture courses.

Experts bring good news for IIT aspirants – the 1.73 lakh students who registered for the JEE (Advanced) – as they say, that the cut-offs are likely to be lesser than last year.

While the percentage will be lowered the number of marks is on the higher end because the total marks went from 360 to 372 this year. The cut-off is expected to be on the lower end of 30 per cent.
