  • JEE Main has a large number of colleges accepting its score and not giving JEE Main 2019 would not be apt
  • SRMJEEE 2019 and VITEEE 2019 exam are university specific exams whose scores are accepted by their own campuses only so, in case of clashing one can be avoided
  • If you don’t take VITEEE 2019 or SRMJEEE 2019 then also you can get admissions in these universities based on your JEE Main 2019
