Think About How This Means To You
Ask yourself if engineering is your passion, and if you gave your best into this. If you did give your best and it still didn't work out, then consider other college options. You should stick to your passion for studying engineering rather than worrying about losing out on the top college.
In the other case, if engineering is not your passion and instead of your parent's wish, then you should be happy that you have your best. If you failed, in the end, it does not matter what matters is that you gave your everything. And look at the positive that you don't have to make your career in this field if you are not interested in it.

Reattempt Next Year

Thing You Should Always Remember
Lastly, if getting into one IIT mean everything for you, if your entire childhood has been building up to this moment, then not being able to crack the JEE Main can feel very disappointing.
You feel like this because of the way your mind was modulated from a young age into thinking that this is the only option you have, but this is not like that at all. There are many options you have for high-class engineering education. But if you really want to study in an IIT, then you can drop a year as we told you.

You can still make it big without the IIT tag. Always remember there are people who are doing brilliant things, and they are not even a part of IIT. Put your heart and soul into what you are doing.
