The admission season is currently on and most of the private and government institutes have started the 2019-20 admission process. The government institutes like the IITs, NITs, CFTIs, and DU in Delhi NCR is depending on the national level entrance exam like JEE Main, JEE advanced or their own admission process to fill their seats. No sugar coating here, but the admission to these colleges come under the tough category.

Reasons being the admission is offered against a limited number of engineering seats, the cutoff is sky high, and the placement opportunities in these colleges are immense after the completion of the respective courses mainly 4 years of B.Tech. Thus, the candidates looking forward to taking admissions in these colleges must ensure that they are cracking the national level examination or are well prepared to stand a chance against the immense competition.

Now, if there is a doubt in the above scenario the doors of the private colleges are open. However, the competition is no less here. The seats offered are limited here too, but are comparatively more in number. The placement opportunities are high here too and the competition in the entrance exam is also higher.

However, comparing with the above scenario, the candidates appearing in the national level examination are much larger as compared to candidates appearing for the university level entrance examination. Thus, the chances of admission in private universities increase by a great deal.
