Funded Technical Institutes [GFTIs] based on the rank obtained in JEE Main or JEE Advanced depending on the Engineering Institute/College (this case may be). There are some Institutes such as the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research [IISERs], the Indian Institute of Petroleum and Energy [IIPE] the Rajeev Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology [RGIPT] Indian Institute of Science and Technology [IIST] and Indian Institute of Science [IISc] which use the score obtained in the JEE Advanced Examination as the basis of admission but, not a part of Joint Seat Allocation Authority [JoSAA] Counseling Process. Any student who takes admission in an IIT cannot appear for JEE Advanced Examination again, but the same is not the case with NIT, IISc, IISERs, RGIPT, IIPE and IIST. Joint Entrance Examinations[JEE] will be conducted in two sessions for admissions in the next academic session. Students are given chance to appear either in the first or second or both sessions.
