So they start preparing for entrance examinations conducted by various institutes like IIT JEE or CAT. Coaching classes run at local and national levels to train students to crack these competitive Examinations.



Some of the sought after premier institutes are IIT for engineering students; AIIMS and AFMC for medical students and IIM for management students. Students who appear for engineering entrance exam like IIT JEE do so after their higher secondary exams.
