Ultimate guide to prepare for IITs

It is every student’s dream to pursuing higher studies in IITs as these are the topmost autonomous public institutes of Engineering and Management in India. Getting admission there is not that easy as there is a tough competition among students to get in there. Before starting to prepare for the entrance exams, it is important for students to have confidence in themselves as it helps them crack this tough exam.

One of the major misconceptions among students is that they think it is important to take coaching for IIT but the official data suggests that more than half of the entrance exam qualified students had prepared without any coaching support.

Well, to get admission, one must have to clear an entrance exam. There are many other ways to get into IITs for other courses such as M.Sc., M.Tech., MA in Humanities, Ph.D. etc. Apart from JEE Mains and JEE Advanced, students also need to know about other entrance exams to get into IITs.
