Hello Aspirant,

After you will complete class 12th examination you will be eligible for admission in various engineering colleges.
At first,you will have to appear in JEE Mains examination and if you can qualify mains then you will get a chance to appear in JEE advance and then if you will qualify advance, you will get chance to get admission in IITs.
You can get admission in NITs,IIITs and GFTIs based on JEE mains marks.
But remender one thing, whether its NITs,IIITs,GFTIs that you will be getting through mains or IITs that you will be getting through advance.
You will have to get 75% marks in class 12th examination if you are general candidate and 65% if you are SC/ST.

I hope you doubts will be clear now.
