JOINT ENTRANCE EXAMINATION

Joint Entrance Examination (JEE)is an all India common entrance examination which is conducted for admission in various engineering courses In 2012, CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) has announced this common examination in place of AIEEE and IIT-JEE. JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) is being conducted into two parts, JEE-Mains and JEE-Advanced. JEE-Advanced is for admission in Indian Institutes of Technology,and the Indian School of Mines (ISM), Dhanbad and JEE-Main exam is to admission in IIITs (Indian Institutes of Information Technology), National Institutes of Technology, CFTIs (Central Funded Technical Institute),etc.

As IIT’s and ISM are the most premier and prestigious engineering colleges in India, the candidates have to clear the second level of exam JEE-Advanced for securing admission in them. Only top candidates of JEE-Mains are eligible to appear for JEE-Advanced exam. The candidates who clear JEE-Advanced exam have the opportunity to join either of the IIT’s or ISM. The candidates who clear JEE-Mains but are not eligible for JEE-Advanced can seek admission in other engineering colleges like Indian Institute of Information TechnologyNational Institute of Technology and followed by other government and private engineering colleges.

In September 2013, the IIT Council approved the decision of the Joint Admission Board to continue with the two-phase JEE pattern (“Mains” followed by “Advanced”) for IITs in 2014. 

Pattern Of Examination

JEE-Main Exam has two papers, Paper-1 and Paper-2. Candidates may opt for either or both of them. Both papers contain multiple choicequestions.

Paper-1 is for admission in B.Tech (online and offline).
Paper-2 is for admission in B.Arch and B.Planning (offline only).

JEE Main Counselling

CBSE and CSAB are two different and independent boards. CBSE conducts JEE (Main) examination and publishes the merit list. CSAB only uses the merit list published by CBSE for seat allocation purposes. In previous years the admission process was conducted through CCB (Central Counseling Board), while this year CCB has been renamed as CSAB (Central Seat Allocation Board) for completing the seat allocation process.

NATIONAL ELIGIBILITY CUM ENTRANCE TEST – NEET (UG)

National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) is a yearly college entrance examination in India. The exam is conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education(CBSE), Delhi for admission to MBBS and BDS courses in several medical colleges around the country. Presently, 15% of the total seats in all medical and dental colleges run by the Union of India, state governments, municipal, or other local authorities in India, except in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir, are reserved for candidates who pass this examination. Since 2014, the examination has been modified.

Benefit

The All-India standardised test’s primary aim is to make medical education available on an equitable basis to all regions of the country and to foster inter-regional exchange. Until recently, it was unusual in being one of the few all-India competitive examinations (along with the examinations for the defence services) based completely on merit and without any reservations. However, since 2006, under pressure from the Human Resources ministry headed by Arjun Singh, reservations for SC, ST and OBC have been introduced in AIPMT.

Exam pattern

Starting from 2014, the exam is conducted in a single stage which generally takes place on the first Sunday of May. The examination consists of one paper containing 180 objective type questions from Physics,Chemistry and Biology (Botany & Zoology). Candidates belonging to Jammu Kashmir and Andhra Pradesh are eligible for this examination at this time but can seek admission only to the Armed Forces Medical College, Pune through it.

Exam changes

From 2010, the pattern of AIPMT has been undergoing changes. The examination was replaced by the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test(NEET-UG) but has now been reinstated with major changes such as doing away with the two stage format of the examination.

has now been reinstated with major changes such as doing away with the two stage format of the examination. OBC reservation is being implemented under government directives, but only in central institutes (i.e. not in most of the colleges covered under AIPMT). More than 2500 MBBS and approximately 400 dental seats are available through AIPMT, but ranks up to 3500 can reasonably hope for selection due to overlap with other entrances.

27% seats are reserved for OBC’s.

Scoring

Each item carries 4 marks. For each incorrect response, one mark is deducted from the total score. However, no deduction from the total score is made if no response is indicated for an item. Indication of more than one answer for a question is deemed an incorrect response and negatively marked.candidates having marks up to 504/720 can reasonably hope for selection.

Why should I appear in the SAT?

If you dream of doing your B.Tech. / B.E. from a US University / College, SAT is almost always essential as a key admission criterion. While universities also demand your credentials at school level and letters of recommendation from your school teachers, there might be differences in assessment in various schools in different countries. SAT provides the universities a standardized score.

Most selective colleges recommend applicants to submit scores for any two SAT Subject tests. Engineering colleges typically require Chemistry or Physics and prefer Mathematics Level 2. A handful of the most competitive colleges, such as MIT, Harvard University and Princeton University, still require three Subject tests in addition to the three sections of the SAT. It is important to consult the college’s website to find out more information about Subject test requirements.

Remember, your scores are not the only information colleges use in their admission decisions. They may also consider your high school record, essays, recommendations, interviews, and extracurricular activities.

 

Apart from being a prerequisite for admission to US universities, the SAT is also important for the following reasons:

Many scholarships require a minimum SAT score Many universities, especially state universities, will offer academic scholarships for students with a certain GPA and a minimum SAT score. The SAT is a great way to set you apart from the college admissions crowd. Having a high SAT score will allow you to stand out from the thousands of other people applying to college.

Why to pursue an engineering career in the US?

  1. Better, latest and most advanced research facilities.
  2. Emphasis given to all round personality development along with college studies.
  3. Application based teaching – Concepts and methods taught are practical and relevant to the industry.
  4. More opportunities for research, higher studies and jobs.

When and where is the SAT conducted?

The SAT is offered six times a year in India, in October, November, December, January, May, and June. The test is typically offered on the first Saturday of the month. For exact dates please refer www.collegeboard.com. Candidates may either take the SAT Reasoning Test or up to three SAT Subject Tests on any given test date.

Candidates wishing to take the test may register online at the College Board’s website http://www.collegeboard.com or by mail. To register by mail, you need a SAT Registration Booklet, which is available at your school counselor’s office. The Registration Form and return envelope are included in the SAT Registration Booklet. For more details students can contact US Educational Foundation in India (USEFI) or visit their website www.fulbright-india.org.

In India, SAT is conducted at the following cities: Ahmedabad, Amritsar, Bangalore, Chennai, Cochin, Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Kodaikanal, Kolkata, Mumbai, Mussoorie, New Delhi and Pune.

Students receive their online score report approximately three weeks after administration of the test (six weeks for mailed, paper scores).

When and how should I start preparing for the SAT?

Because the SAT is the most important test for college admissions to the US, it is always best to start preparing as early as possible. This allows more preparation time to achieve score goals.

Most good colleges require the students to send in their applications with SAT scores by November / December of their class XII year. This implies that a student should appear for the October or November SAT. Ideally a student should appear for the May / June SAT so that they have sufficient time to complete their college applications including essays, recommendations and transcripts from teachers, filling up of forms etc. This means a student should start the actual SAT preparation before the beginning of class XI as there are no distractions such as school homework, projects, exams or any other school activities. In fact, to develop a strong foundation a student should start clearing the basic fundamentals from class IX and X itself as most of the questions are based on the concepts taught in IX and X.
