The students have to go through cut-throat competition as the JEE (Joint Entrance Examination), which is conducted for taking in students to these IITs leads to a selection rate of 0.1% only. Out of the 9,00,000 students (approximate) who take the exam every year, only around 8,000 manage to get through.
