Cracking the JEE is an extremely important aspect for every engineering aspirant. The aspirants who want to get admission into undergraduate technical courses like IITs, NITs, IIITs, etc., have to appear for the Joint Entrance Examination known as JEE 2024. It is an engineering entrance examination conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA) at an all-India level. The syllabus and the level of competition will seem very tough without any proper guidance and study planning. JEE is conducted annually in two phases, namely JEE Main and JEE Advanced.
