Admissions to B.Tech courses in India are conducted through national (JEE Mains, JEE Advanced), state (WBJEE, KEAM etc) or university/institute level (IISER Aptitude Test, BITSAT etc) entrance examinations. Deemed universities conduct their respective entrance examinations to shortlist students. Every year, these examinations are conducted in the months of March and April. In view of the current COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent nationwide lockdown, most entrance examinations for 2020 have been postponed until further notice. According to the recent guidelines by AICTE, the academic session will begin from September 2020.
