The value of a higher education cannot be overestimated. Inkbulb’s main purpose is to give Indian students a way to adequately prepare themselves to take the Joint Entrance Examination (?) (JEE), the most important step in being able to attend an Indian Institute of Technology (?).
India has the 3rd largest educational system in the world, after the USA and China. With the 2nd largest population on Earth, after China, it’s no wonder that the competition for entering higher educational institutions in the country is extremely high.
There are over 650 higher educational institutions in India. Of particular importance in India’s educational system are the universities that fall under the 1961 Institutes of Technology Act which place a special honour on the selected institutions.
While admission criteria varies from university to university, the basis is always the same. Each student must pass the JEE in order to be accepted. This exam is divided into two parts, the JEE Mains and the JEE Advanced. In 2015, 1.3 million students registered for the JEE Mains, while only 117 thousand (almost 9%) were able to proceed onto the JEE Advanced. Only 26.5 thousand of those students (only 2% of all JEE registrants) have been declared qualified for admission to Indian Institutes of Technology.
