While BTech at Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) is arguably the most preferred choice of JEE Advanced qualified candidates, there are some alternatives available to them.
Some of the top institutes in the country, including the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and the Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research (IISERs), allow students to take JEE Advanced qualified applicants for admission into undergraduate and dual degree courses.
For IIT admission, upon qualification in JEE Advanced, candidates must participate in JoSAA’s centralized counseling process. Here is a list of institutes that admit JEE Advanced qualified students through institute level counseling.
Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore admits students into the Bachelor of Science (IISc BS) program through JEE Advanced. The institute has recently launched a new course, BTech in Computing and Mathematics.
In addition to JEE Advanced, candidates can access IISc’s BS course through Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana (KVPY) channel.
The top 15,000 JEE Advanced qualified candidates can apply for admission into integrated BS-MS courses offered by IISERs. Like IISc, the institute also allows KVPY aptitude test qualified candidates to be admitted. It also conducts the IISER Admission Test or IAT for admission through the State and Central Councils (SCB) channel.
