Impact of JEE Advanced going online: Strategy and tips

Powered by

All this while JEE advanced aspirants have been writing the entrance. Now instead of writing, they will be typing and surfing because that is the new way of appearing for JEE Advanced. With many glitches and mistakes that had taken place in the past, the Joint Admission Board or JAB has decided the online way of JEE Advanced. It is definitely a historic move. The Impact will be seen in two colors; positive and negative.

Positive Impact of JEE Advanced online

  • Global Acceptance: It has been seen that most of the entrances in countries outside India is online. There is hardly the use of pen and paper these days. This is to avoid any glitches. Moreover, when you take the online way of entrances, in future, you will have no issue with other entrances. Technologically, you get sounder and get digitally smarter as you start practicing computer frequently. This makes the global acceptance easier. A student gains more visibility outside India compared to those who have never attempted online entrances.
  • Rectification of human errors: When a paper is to be evaluated, human errors tend to occur and to avoid this, online paper checking method is the best as human error is reduced through the use of computer.
  • Safety from Mishandling: Papers are subject to soiling and spoiling when they have to be loaded on a vehicle, sent to a particular destination etc. On the other hand, online mode is the best mode as everything is centralized and safe in one place. Everything is universally accessible and there is no fear of spoilage. There is no need of handling. Just save and retain.
  • Live Online Classes: This mode of coaching getting popular and making students globally competent.

Negative Impact of JEE Advanced online

  • Struggle for students from the rural areas: Students from the rural areas are not used to the online method. This can be an obstacle in the better performance of the students who can do wonders if not appearing online.
  • Categorization of Questions: It is easier to categorize questions on papers than online. With online mode, keeping questions for later can be inconvenient.

With both the pros and cons out of the implementation of online JEE Advance, it is important to strategize best ways in scoring well. The motive is to crack the entrance; no matter what the mode of entrance is. Making ways to study hard and bringing out result that is desired are the ultimate goals one can think of.

What Tips and Strategies to be followed?

The new mode of entrance can be a challenge for many and those who can get over the challenge will win the race effectively. For those who have been facing the challenges, the tips and tricks can help in the long run. Try and practice to clear in the first attempt even after the change in the entrance pattern.

Practice till you master it: Online mode is not difficult. It is just different than the traditional method of appearing for any entrance. It is important to start practicing the online mode through mock tests several times before the entrance date. This will make one close to perfect and gain confidence. The fear of online entrance will be gone and it will be just another entrance for you. The practice can be categorized in the following steps-

  • Learn the basics first. Without the basic, you will find it difficult to proceed further and gain more knowledge. Once you have the subject matter expertise, you will automatically have the confidence of facing the online entrance of IIT JEE Advanced
  • Practice the previous year question papers online. With this, you will gain the habit of using the online entrance mode. When you reach the examination hall on the entrance day, you won’t have the fear of the online entrance examination
  • Mock tests can prove to be beneficial. Any doubt you have, ensure that you won’t delay the process of seeking clarification from the teachers and mentors
  • Joining online coaching classes can also break the ice between your fear and the online mode

Once you follow these tricks and tips, you will definitely be super confident and have more power to encounter the online mode of entrance. This may take time. It may be a month, three months or even six months; but following these proven methods have helped CAT aspirants in the past who have always appeared for online mode.

The most important factor is your knowledge. When you have the basics crystal clear, no obstacle can break you. You will always be confident. Of course, the speed of attempting questions online can be slower. This can be dealt with easily. Joining a computer class and understanding the way it operates and how it works can be fruitful for you. For someone who is already adept at it can try the mock test online. For beginners, joining a computer coaching is a must.

Try it to believe that you can. Nothing is impossible if you believe in the phrase, “I can”.

IIT Admission - 3 Key Changes Introduced in JEE Advanced 2018

Powered by

Starting 2018, the Govt has introduced 3 key changes in .JEE Advanced which is one of the toughest entrance exams in the country for admission in the premier Indian Institutes of Technology and some other colleges.

Change 1 : Exam to be held only in online mode only

Laptop, Human Hands, Keyboard, Typing, WorkingStarting 2018, the exam shall be held only in Online mode. This is the first time that the option of attempting the exam in pen-and-paper mode has been withdrawn. This decision of conducting the exam only in online mode had run into some CONTROVERSY with students from Bihar opposing the move. However, the Govt has gone ahead and decided in favour of Online mode only.



Change 2 : Introduction of additional “Supernumerary” seats for Female candidates

A decision has been taken at the level of the IIT Council to, inter alia, improve the gender balance in the undergraduate programs at the IITs from the current (approximately) 8% to 14% in 2018-19 by creating supernumerary seats specifically for female candidates, without any reduction in the number of seats that was made available to non-female candidates in the previous academic year (i.e. academic year 2017-2018). Accordingly, to achieve this objective, and in accordance with the directions of the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, supernumerary seats will thus be created and offered to female candidates for improving the gender balance in the undergraduate programs in IITs. These supernumerary seats will be offered (a) to only those female candidates who are declared qualified in JEE (Advanced) - 2018, and, (b) strictly based on the performance in JEE (Advanced) - 2018.

Change 3 : 4000 More Candidates To Be Eligible

As per notification dated 7 Oct 2017 release by IIT Kanpur (organizing institute for JEE-Advanced 2018), 4000 more students will be eligible for write JEE-Advanced in 2018. This effectively raises the number of such candidates from 2,20,000 to 2,24,000. Ad per the notice, “Candidates should be among the top 2,24,000 (including all categories) by scoring positive marks in Paper-1 of JEE (Main)-2018.” It is worthwhile to note that the number of students may in fact be a little over 2,24,000 owing to “tied” ranks / score in any category – as spelt out in the prospectus.

Admission in IIT / IIIT for Commerce & Humanities students without JEE Advanced

Powered by

JEE Advanced is the gateway for entry into core engineering and some BS courses in IITs where primarily PCM students are eligible. However, many students are unaware that there are other Undergrad programmes as well (including a B.Tech in Computer Science at IIIT Hyderabad) where even Commerce & Humanities students are eligible. And admission to these is through entrance exams other than JEE Advanced.

Programme 1 : Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT-Madras) conducts Humanities and Social Sciences Entrance Examination (HSEE) usually in April and offers a 5-Year Intergrated M.A. in two streams. Non-science students are eligible.

a) Development Studies and
b) English Studies for students after Class XII.

The first two years of the curriculum are common to all students after which, they branch out into the two streams. Allocation of streams will be based on students' performance during the first three semesters as well as their preferences.

Development Studies: This stream addresses questions of "order and change" in a globalizing world and aims to explore available approaches to fostering development, understood broadly as the goal of providing people the freedom to make their lives better.

English Studies: The  English Studies stream has been designed for students with sensitivity for literary and linguistic analyses.

Distinctive Features of the Prpgram:

1) A very distinctive feature of the programme is the involvement of the Engineering, Sciences and Management facultie s in offering innovative courses in collaboration with the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences.

2) The programme imparts substantial knowledge of Indian economy, literature, philosophy, culture, society, and public policy. It provides opportunities for learning a foreign language. Currently German, French and Chinese are offered.

Programme 2 : IIT Mumbai conducts UCEED entrance exam (usually in the month of Jan) for admission to 4 year B.Design programme in which non-science students are eligible.

Industrial Design Centre (IDC) of IIT Mumbai has been conducting M.Des and Ph.D programs. From 2015, it started a 4 year B.Des program. Also offered is an integrated 5 year B.Des + M.Des program (option being available after 3rd year). In addition to IDC of IIT Bombay, UCEED qualified candidates are eligible for admission to B.Des. programme at IIT Guwahati and IIITDM Jabalpur (PDPM Indian Institute of Information Technology, Design and Manufacturing, Deemeed to be university, under Ministry of HRD, Govt. of India ). However, in IIT Guwahati, candidates only from the Science Stream with Physics, Chemistry and Maths as subjects  are eligible to apply.

Programme 3 : IIIT Hyderabad conducts UGEEE-CLD entrance exam and offers a 5 year Dual Degree B.Tech in Computer Science and MS by Research in Computational Linguistics. Non-science students are eligible.

B.Tech in Computer Science and MS by Research in Computational Linguistics (5 year Dual Degree) (CLD in short) is a unique program offered by IIIT-H.  Computational Linguistics (CL) deals with understanding and developing computational theories of human language. Such theories allow us to understand the structure of language and build computer software that can process language. There is a great emphasis today on machine learning where the machine learns from real life language data. Consequently, the field is close to both Linguistics as well as Artificial Intelligence.  If you have a fascination for scientific study of natural language and combining it with computer science., this area is for you. The dual-degree programme will give you a strong grounding in both Computer Science and Linguistics, and will prepare you for academic research as well as industry research jobs in Computational Linguistics.

Eligibility Stream I -Higher Secondary / Class 12 or equivalent in Science stream with Physics and Mathematics. A keen interest in prior work in languages and aptitude for Conceptual Analysis and Mathematics is essential.

Eligibility Stream II - Higher Secondary / Class 12 or equivalent in Humanities, Art and Social Sciences with Mathematics. A keen interest in prior work in languages and aptitude for Conceptual Analysis and Mathematics is essential.

Why JIPMER, AIIMS, JEE-Adv are the toughest exams

Powered by

Now that the exam season is behind us and students and institutes are busy with counselling and admissions, we thought it pruduent to share certain statistics. In this piece, we would like to share about success ratio's for some of the entrance exams in Engineering & Medical.  Success ratio is the ratio of available seats to the number of candidates who took a particular entrance exam.

Let us begin with Engineering.

JEE Mains:  
Success Ratio: 2.25% (Appeared: 1120000  Seats: 221000)
(Considering seats in NITs, IIITs, GFTIs)

JEE Advanced:  
Success Ratio: 1.14% (Appeared: 1120000  Seats: 12717)
(Considering seats in IITs, IISERs, IIST, RGIPE, IIPE, IISC)
(Although only 170000 of those who appeared for JEE-Mains qualified to write JEE-Adv, we have taken 1120000 as the total population who attempted to qualify for JEE-Adv) 

Success Ratio: 47.47% (Appeared: 291000  Seats: 138136)

Success Ratio: 33.94% (Appeared: 58932  Seats: 2000)

CET-K-Eng (Karnataka):  
Success Ratio: 44% (Appeared: 125000  Seats: 55000)

Success Ratio: 41.98% (Appeared: 131000  Seats: 55000)

Success Ratio: 83.74% (Appeared: 187484  Seats: 157000)

GCET-Eng (Goa):  
Success Ratio: 24.04% (Appeared: 5116  Seats: 1230)


Success Ratio: 0.11% (Appeared: 189000  Seats: 200)

Success Ratio: 0.25% (Appeared: 284737  Seats: 700)

Success Ratio: 8.34% (Appeared: 1138894  Seats: 95000)

From the extreme low success ratios, it is clear that JIPMER and AIIMS, both from Medicine, are one of the toughest entrance exams to get through. This is followed by JEE Advanced and JEE Mains in Engineering.  No surpsrise then in the clamour for coaching for these entrance exams!
