The Joint Entrance Exam (JET) is a multi-stages selection programme and for pursuing your eduation in these colleges, you need to pass in all the required stages. 

This year the FTII hosted the JET 2019 on 24th February in 2 sessions across 26 centres in India. The results of JET 2019 has already been declared on 17th May. You can check it in using your registered application number, Date of Birth and Roll Number.

I hope you can access your result conveniently, do enquire in case of further necessity.
