"Excellent"

You have to give two tests - JEE Mains and JEE Advanced. To give JEE Advanced, you need to score above the cutoff marks in JEE Mains. Based on the AIR in JEE Advanced, you can then apply for admission in IIT's and some other GFTI's. There is no interview process and the test consists of questions from high school Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. There is an online process for seat allotment where you fill up your preferences for college and branch and you get a seat based on AIR.

"Awesome college for engineering, specially in India u will rarely find better than this."

JEE - main followed by JEE - advance ,one of the well known exam in India. As I decided to do engineering then it's always better if you choose best college in that field, and IIT's are best option. There is lot of competition for this exam ,but hard work and some luck can always give what you want. There is simple procedure JEE main if qualified then JEE advance and then online counselling through josaa portal followed by verification through allotted centre. All process is smoothly conducted and all information are easily available.

"The most exhausting, demanding yet exciting and awesome year of my life, I've spent here at IIT Kanpur."

I wrote JEE-Advanced 2016 to get admission to IITK. My rank in the exam wouldn't permit me to get a branch of my liking in an old IIT so I decided to go for an old IIT which was famous for it rigorous and excellent curriculum. I just opted for Materials Science and engineering on a whim.
