bx-zone IIT coaching institutes

Indian Institute of Technology, a name which around every science student wants to tag his name with. More than 1 million students write IIT JEE but the number of seats is only 11000. That means 1 out of every 10 students is going to get a seat in IIT.

But then there are desires of obtaining Computer Science, Electronics & Communications, and Aeronautical engineering which put more pressure on the student attempting the exam.

Success has a lot of factors. On the day of the exam, you must reach on time, your digestive system must be working fine, you must have slept well, must have eaten properly etcetera, etcetera.

If one of those success factors doesn’t work on the day of the exam, your ranking in the exam might snap in the JEE Mains. God forbid that it doesn’t happens.
