I wanted to ask since Jee main 2020 have been postponed to may last week but so far there is no notification for UPSEE exam conducted by AKTU in Uttar Pradesh. Just wanted to know estimation that will it be conducted before or after jee mains

Anantika Kushwaha 29th Mar, 2020
Hello Aspirant,

JEE Mains has been postponed due to the outbreak of COVID- 19 disease spread by Corona Virus. Up till now there is no news of UPSEE exam being postponed. However keeping in mind the lockdown occurring on the country, the exam will most likely postponed. As it might not be possible for any body to conduct exams under such circumstances.

Sir. is scholarship cover my fees and hostel fees in private colleges. in upsee for btech

Anantika Kushwaha 29th Mar, 2020
Hello Aspirant,

The tuition and hostel fees in private colleges are too high. The scholarship provided by the government will not be able to cover up all your expenses. However you will still receive the scholarship from the government, so it will be a relief. After all, something is better than nothing.

Sir , i want to do btech in csc Or it branch. can you tell me the best government or provide college who provide best placement. but their fees should be low. if I will get high rank in upsee.

Anantika Kushwaha 29th Mar, 2020
Hello Aspirant,

The private colleges affiliated to AKTU have considerably high fees structure. The government colleges have low fees structure when compared. The government colleges affiliated to AKTU are-

  • IET, Lucknow
  • KNIT, Sultanpur
  • BIET, Jhansi

Should I give UPSEE as well or will giving just JEE be fine?

Sarthak Dhiman 28th Mar, 2020

Hello Aspirant.

Attempting JEE main examination would allow you to get college across the nation where UPSEE examination is conducted only for colleges affiliated to AKTU and located in Uttar Pradesh out of which mostly are private.

Hence, it would be better to attempt both the examination but preface with your main motive as JEE main as it would make you confident enough to attempt both the examination.

Best of luck


is it better comparison to upsee exam for my future?
