AIEEE or All India Engineering Entrance Examination is one of the most popular as well as one of the most difficult examination in India. The examination is conducted every year for admission to various technological institutes across India. Also, based on the marks obtained admission to architectural institutes is provided to the student. The examination was primarily started for the admission to 30 NIT’s as well as 5 IIIT’s and the students are provided state as well as an All India Rank. It is based on this rank that the institutes are alloted to the students.
The examination consists of 2 papers. One for B.Tech and other for B.Arch. A candidate can either opt for first or for second or both. The first paper consists of three section namely Physics, Chemistry and Maths. Each of these section consists of 30 objective questions where each question is alloted indivdual marks. In case of correct choice is made then the candidate gets full marks, if a wrong choice is made than one by four marks is deducted.
Paper 2 consists of three sections namely Mathematics, Drawing and Aptitude. The first two sections consists of objective type questions whereas the third section is drawing based.
The paper is of 3 hours duration and the marks each question carry has been variable over the years.
The candidate who wishes to appear for the AIEEE needs to have passed his 10+2 secondary examination from an institute recognised by CBSE or any other equivalent board. Candidate must be of 17 years in age. He should have passed his 10+2 having Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics as core subjects.
