State Engineering Examination
For a NRI Indian student, pursuing engineering in India isn’t very easy. There are several engineering entrance exams which a student can appear for in order to get admission in premier engineering institutes in India. The top- tier engineering colleges in India take UG admissions primarily according the JEE Rank of the student. Also, as per the latest guidelines issued by DASA / CIWG, from session 2021- 22 onwards, JEE Main Rank will become compulsory for PIO/ NRI/ OCI students.
