Indian Institutes of Technology across the country are some of the premium educational institutes that our country has to offer, and it is the dream of every student to get a chance to study in an IIT, though there is a common misconception that IITs only offer engineering courses as per their curriculum.

You can still get admission in IITs, even if you are not a student of the science stream. If you opted for a commerce or arts stream, you can seek admission to some innovative and interesting courses by multiple IITs, and the best part is that you won’t have to appear for JEE Advanced for the same.
