Engineering Entrance Exams

In a country with 5 lakh students+ aspiring for engineering, the Engineering Entrance Exams become an important scale/parameter to screen the deserving candidates from others, in admission to the renowned engineering colleges in India.

The following are the most prestigious Engineering Entrance Exams in the country.

According to the Times of India, almost 15 Lakh students graduate as engineers every year in India alone. This is perhaps the biggest proof of the fact that “engineering” is still one of the most sought-after courses in the country. Likewise, the key to securing one’s engineering career in the future lies in acing the requisite engineering exams.

Therefore, it becomes important that students/engineering aspirants have a good idea about the various engineering exams held across the country as well as the purpose these serve.
