Powered by www.MyExamPlan.com

Are the IITs same as the IIITs?  Are the Indian Institute of Information Technology same as the International Institute of Information Technology?  How to get admission into IIITs?  What is the application procedure to get into IIITs?  We decided to unravel these mysteries for you.

India has 29 institutions that have the abbreviation IIIT.  But these are predominantly can be grouped into three major categories:

  1. Those that are run by MHRD and are Institutes of National Importance (5 institues)
  2. Those that are run under a Private-Public-Partnership PPP model and are Institutes of National Importance (19 institutes)
  3. Those that are predominantly a Deemed University, State University or are Private Institutions (6 institutes)

IIITs in categories 1 and 2 above are called the Indian Institute of Information Technology
IIITs under MHRD: ABV-IIITM Gwalior, IIIT Allahabad, IIIT Design & Manufacturing Jabalpur, IIIT Design & Manufacturing Kancheepuram, IIIT Design & Manufacturing Kurnool
IIITs run under PPP model: IIIT Sri City, IIIT Guwahati, IIIT Vadodara, IIIT Kota, IIIT Tiruchirappalli, IIIT Una, IIIT Sonepat, IIIT Kalyani, IIIT Lucknow, IIIT Dharwad, IIIT Kottayam, IIIT Manipur, IIIT Nagpur, IIIT Pune, IIIT Ranchi, IIIT Surat, IIIT Bhopal, IIIT Bhagalpur

The IIITs in these two groups have also been given the honour of being Institutes of National Importance (INI) like the IITs, i.e., they are free to grant own degrees and don't need the approval of UGC for this).

On the other hand, all (except one) of the IIITs in the third category are named as International Institute of Information Technology have no uniform admission criteria.  Some of them, like IIIT Hyderabad have a mix of entrance exams, JEE Main rank and KVPY, others rely on JEE Main rank but conduct their own counseling for seat allotment.  Given below are admission process of the 5 International Institute of Information Technology institutes. The last institute is called Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology Delhi.

Animation & VFX - A Career Path Worth Exploring

Powered by www.MyExamPlan.com

Animation and VFX (Visual Effects) in India grew at a healthy 16.4 per cent in 2016 as per a KPMG India - FICCI 2017 report on Indian Media and Entertainment Industry.  The animation and VFX industry is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 17.2 per cent over 2017–21 to reach a size of INR131.7 billion.  Breaking this down a notch deeper, the growth will be in part driven by 9.5 per cent growth in animation and a 25 per cent growth in the VFX segment.  

So, let us examine the key drivers behind this amazing growth in the Animation segment in India. 

  • Huge Outsourced projects from film and television sectors (Currently this caters to 85% of the animation services in India)
  • Digital advertising 
  • Animation Intellectual Property production (starting own animation companies and producing content. e.g. Green Gold Animations produces Chotta Bheem)
  • Broadcasters partnering with Animation studios 
  • Growing use of VFX in films

Want to pursue a career in Animation and VFX?  The path to Animation is clear if you are passionate about this segment.  There is no restriction of subjects to pursue Animation.  A Humanities, Commerce or Science student can apply and enrol into the Animation programs.  Selection is either via an Entrance exam or via Class 12 merit usually.  

Well, here's a list of 13 good bachelors programs offered by universities and institutes.

1. 3 Year B.Sc. Animation from Manipal Academy of Higher Education (earlier known as Manipal Univ) - School of Communication, Manipal  [Details]
2. 4 Year B.Sc. Animation & Multimedia from BIT Mesra (Noida Campus) [Details]

Planning for MBBS abroad? Know these first

Powered by www.MyExamPlan.com

Admission to MBBS in India in becoming increasingly difficult, given the disproportionate skew in number of aspirants against the number of seats, especially in Govt colleges.  Approx 1.4 Million (14 lakh) aspirants vie for nearly 60,000 seats every year, of which roughly only 50% (33,000 seats) are Govt. seats.  That translates to 42 candidates competing for each government MBBS seat!  The cost of getting admissions into private MBBS seats, meanwhile, is typically out of reach for most candidates since it sets back the parent by at least Rs.60-80 lacs on an average. 

Chasing the MBBS dream abroad

The low number of Govt. seats and high cost of private medical seats is now driving parents to consider overseas MBBS options for their children.  And in that  many Indians tend to look for relatively cheaper options in countries based in Eastern Europe, Russia, Nepal and China. The overall cost of medical education ranges between 20-35 lacs in these countries.  At the surface, it sounds lucrative, especially if a career in medicine is what the child is passionate about.  However, as we will explain below, the journey is not without its pitfalls. 

FMGE

While pursuing an MBBS from Eastern Europe (Russia, Ukraine, Georgia etc.) or China is understandable from the point of view of affordability, it does have a flip side, and a rather serious one – the abysmal low success rate in FMGE (Foreign Medical Graduate Examination) – which is required to be cleared by such foreign MBBS degree holders in order to get a license to practice Medicine in India.  

The FMGE screening test is mandatory for an Indian citizen/Overseas citizen of India possessing a primary medical qualification awarded by any medical institution outside India who is desirous of getting provisional or permanent registration with Medical Council of India or any State Medical Council. However, note that a candidate seeking provisional or permanent registration shall NOT have to qualify the Screening Test if he/she holds an Under Graduate and Post Graduate medical qualification from Australia/Canada/New Zealand/United Kingdom/United States of America.

The FMGE screening test is held twice a year in June and December. As per MCI (Medical Council of India) rules, a candidate must score at least 50% marks in the FMGE to pass the test.  And getting through FMGE is not easy. 

Reality bites

Now, consider the data published recently in Times of India about success rate in FMGE in 2016-17:

- Educated in China : 6.92% Passed FMGE (261 out of 3774)

- Educated in Russian Federation : 8.93% Passed FMGE (222 out of 2487)

- Educated in Ukraine : 10.34% Passed FMGE (179 out of 1731)

- Educated in Nepal : 11.49% Passed FMGE (158 out of 1375)

- Educated in Krgystan : 7.77% Passed FMGE (80 out of 1029)

- Educated in Georgia : 17.07% Passed FMGE (56 out of 328)

- Educated in Kazakhstan : 5.56% Passed FMGE (14 out of 252)

OVERALL : 8.84% Passed FMGE (970 out of 10976)

As is evident, overall, less than 9% students have been able to clear FMGE. So, while it may be cheaper to pursue the MBBS degree abroad, it is an uphill task to clear the entry gate required to start a practice in India.  Of course one can attempt FMGE multiple times but if less than 10% of applicants qualify, that perhaps gives an indication regarding the quality of the degree received from institutions in these countries.

If not abroad, then what?

There are a couple of drivers behind the decision by parents to send their children to pursue Medicine (MBBS) in these ‘less expensive’ countries:

1. Their children’s fascination for life-sciences career

2. Lack of awareness of good courses in Biology / life-sciences related fields besides MBBS/BDS

We believe that if parents and students are made aware of good opportunities and options in the healthcare and life-sciences areas, besides MBBS & BDS, there could be a potential re-think among many regarding the foreign MBBS option. We have written about some of these options in our blog “Beyond MBBS & BDS : Great Options in PCB After Class 12”. Probably being aware of such options could be a step in the right direction and may help save many students and their parents from undue anxiety and hardships.

1. Why the two stage registration process?

From past experience it has been found that a majority of rejections are due to improper filling of details other than educational qualifications. WIth the two stage registration process AIIMS intends to minimize registration rejections due to clerical and unintended errors.

2. So, where can I get the form for these two registrations?

Well, both these registrations would be Online.  There would be NO paper forms for the two stage registration process.

3. How does it work?

The first stage registration process is called Basic Registration. 
Applicants desirous of appearing in the AIIMS-MBBS Entrance Examination will need to initially register by filling 
a) basic details and 
b) uploading images almost six month in advance
These particulars and images will be screened, there would be adequate time to correct errors and deficiencies. The candidates will be informed whether their registration is accepted, and their details will be stored with an unique identification number.
Thus, candidates will not be subjected to the pressures of last minute rush and the fear of rejection of applications without any time left to make amends. 
Since applicants may not have completed their eligibility of examinations etc, certain details may not be collected at the time of Basic Registration.

Basic Registration Window:
Starts on 30-Nov-2018
Ends on 03-Jan-2019
Once the Basic Registration process is closed no further applications for that particulars year will be allowed. 

4. What happens next?

Yes, indeed!

Most importantly, please note that rejected Basic Registration applicants are not eligible to proceed for Final Registration. 
Also, if you haven't decided to appear for AIIMS-MBBS Entrance Examination in 2019 and did not fill-in the Basic Registration form online, then you would NOT be able to appear for the exam if you choose to appear for the exam after the close of the Basic Registration window.
The applicants who have completed Basic Registration and this has been accepted can thus decide to either appear for the examination of this year (2019) or subsequently. 
In case any applicant does not wish to appear this year, he/she need not proceed to fill Final Registration but his/her Basic Registration details will be stored and will be valid for the subsequent year.
In case the applicant desires to take the examination as announced, he/she can proceed for Final Registration. 
In Final Registration applicants can fill remaining details such as 
a)qualification details
b)choose the available city for examination and 
c)make the necessary payments.

9. When will the Final Registration start?

Final Registration Window:
Starts on 21-Feb-2019
Ends on 12-Mar-2019

10. Can I use Final Registration for AIIMS-MBBS-2019 & AIIMS-MBBS-2020 entrance exams?

After completion of Final Registration and uploading of Admit Cards, the Basic Registration process will then resume and continue for subsequent year. Those who have already completed Basic Registration once need not fill these details again whether they appear for AIIMS-MBBS Entrance Examination-2019 or not. However, every time the dates for Final Registration for subsequent Entrance Examinations are made, the Final Registration will have to be completed. Thus, while Basic Registration is enduring, Final Registration is examination year specific.
