There is good news for those appearing or planning to take the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) exams. Those who clear this exam, might actually get a shot at admission at Queen’s University, UK.
The university recently included JEE scores as a parameter to assess Indian students for admission in its in engineering (Science and technology) programmes. And now it is exploring the option of using JEE itself as an eligibility criteria for admission at its University.
Our national exam, JEE, does have a global reckoning in terms of quality. If one may recollect, in the recently announced JEE results, Stuti Khandwala, an 18-year old from Surat cleared girl cleared NEET 2019, JEE Main, AIIMS & JIPMER. And looking at her scores at JEE, USA’s top notch college, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) offered her 90% scholarship and share has taken it up to pursue Bio-Engineering.
This means, that apart from the lure of IIT, more students will now take the JEE exams. Some 80,000 students take this test every year for 5000 IIT seats.
