Although the result of Indian Institute of Technology-Joint Entrance Exam (IIT-JEE) results will be declared in early Friday morning, yet the scores of JEE for the admission into the country’s prestigious institutes do not have much significance to the students. The reason is that, more than 5 lakh JEE candidates have already received offer letters & scholarships from many foreign universities.
A student who has already received a scholarship from Purdue University, United States, has not even considered to check the online IIT-JEE score. Another student revealed the same opinion giving less importance to IIT-JEE score. One of the students who endeavor to pursue higher studies abroad , informed that he has not appeared for the IIT-JEE test , yet he got a call from MIT. Most of these students expressed that, "IITs are no longer the only coveted institutes for students and parents”.
For the first time IIT has published marks of students online before announcing their results.
The total number of candidates who took the test of IIT-JEE on April 8 across the country was 5,07,634. Among them 77,550 candidates were from thr Mumbai zone.
