The Indian Institute of Technology popularly known as IIT is an autonomous group of institutions mainly for Engineering & Technology related higher education in India. IIT was formed after Indian Independence in 1947. To support the Economic & Social developments, IIT’s were specialized to provide training for the Scientist & Engineers to develop a well skilled workforce.
As a requirement, to get admission in any institute, students have to go through written tests.

IIT holds a special position as Institutes of National Importance as under the Indian Institute of Technology Act.
IIT offers Undergraduate & Post Graduate programs. The admission at all IIT’s for Undergraduate programs is done through a Joint Entrance Examination popularly known as IIT-JEE. This exam is conducted to test the knowledge of the candidates in Mathematics, Physics & Chemistry.
Post Graduate admissions vary from Undergraduate admission test. The courses available for Post Graduation are M.Tech, M.Sc & Management studies. The admissions for M.Tech courses are conducted through GATE i.e Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering, JAM – Joint Admission to M.Sc for M.Sc courses & JMET- Joint Management Entrance Test for Management courses.
Number of candidates appearing for IIT entrance is huge but the availability of seats is very limited. Students need be trained above par to be selected. Hence the coach has to provide complete & precise information so that students can prepare & perform well in the competitive exam.
