IIT Jee is the topic of discussion for every engineering aspirant out there. If you aim to get into one of the most prestigious engineering institutes in the country like IITs, NIT, and IIITs, you are bound to clear this exam. Every year 10 to 13 lakh students give JEE MAINS exam out of which less than 50k students are able to secure a seat for themselves in the JOSAA counselling. This makes it one of the most difficult entrance exams in the country. It requires a proper schedule and the right preparation strategy to get into the top 5% of students in the country.
