IIT JEE Advanced
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) are one of the top engineering institutes in India and in the world. There are a total of 17 IITs all around India and approximately half a million students apply to get into them. They conduct a pan India entrance test known as Joint Entrance Examination (JEE).
The client wanted to create a website to cater to 1000s of aspiring IIT JEE students and faculty memebers. The website should display admit cards and result for the exam along with seats for the upcoming academic year for all IITs. Users should also be able to download these.
Solution was to build a fully responsive web application which allows user to search for content easily, also easy to upload data in huge batch files via the admin interface.
Faculty could upload loads of data of the students appearing for the examination online easily. There was a common place for all the IITs to look at the data of any student appearing for the exam. And for students it was very beneficial to access their admit card and results online, thus eliminating the delay caused due to postal service.
