A recent list revealed that IIT JEE exam is the second toughest exam in the world, and the most toughest in India. Check which foreign universities accept this exam’s scores.
The Joint Entrance Exam (JEE), which is conducted every year by the National Testing Agency (NTA) and IITs in India is known to be one of the toughest exams in the world. A recent list compiled by Erudera — an online education search platform — revealed that IIT JEE exam is the second toughest exam in the world, and the most toughest in India
This engineering entrance exam is conducted in two parts — JEE Main and JEE Advanced. While the Main exam is hosted by the NTA, JEE Advanced is organised by one of the Indian Institute of Technology (IITs) every year. Only those who qualify the JEE Main exam are allowed to appear for the JEE Advanced exam.
While some students would appear for the exam in India, that does not guarantee them a seat in one of the (nearly) 23 institutes. Some students would, then, decide to pursue a degree abroad. In such cases, there are a few universities around the globe that may accept the JEE score or at least offer brownie points for the score.
List of foreign universities accepting JEE score for admissions:
- National University of Singapore
- Queen’s University, Belfast
- German universities
