All India Engineering Entrance Exam (AIEEE)

Presently a number of tests are conducted by various states/ engineering colleges for entrance to various professional and technical programmes in the country. Multiplicity of such tests causes immense mental and financial burden on students and their parents without adding any value to the system.

As per Guidelines for Deemed Universities, admissions to the identical courses are required to be made on an All-India basis through a common entrance test. In view of this, there have been attempts to hold an All India Engineering Entrance Examination for past some time. This finally fructified in the year 2002, when the first AIEEE was conducted.

The responsibility of conducting All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) is assigned to Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). The Entrance Examination is designed in such a manner that the students coming from rural background are not put to any disadvantage.

Seat Allocation in NITs through AIEEE

Students who have cleared the cut-off mentioned by the Counselling Board of AIEEE are called for centralized counselling where the seats are allocated depending on the student’s rank and his/ her preference of bracnches/ colleges. In the year 2009 the cut-off for the GE category to be eligible for centralized counselling was 100 marks.

In each NIT, 50% of the seats are reserved for the students who have appeared for the Qualifying examination (+2 or equivalent) in that state. All the remaining seats in the NITs are allocated as per the candidate’s national rank.

Syllabus for AIEEE

Syllabus for the test is based on common minimum syllabus drawn from different State Boards of School Education. Syllabus is available in the brochure for AIEEE. Timing of the examination is such that the students can fully use their preparations for Class 12 Examination. It is usually conducted in the end of April or beginning of May every year.

Please refer to the table below
