PREPARING for IIT-JEE or AIEEE in the present scenario is just like a “sadhna” says P.K Bansal, CEO of Bansal Classes, Kota. The Joint Entrance Examination conducted to select students for admission into the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology (popularly known as IIT-JEE or just JEE) is one of the toughest entrances to crack. A total of 17 colleges, which include the seven old and eight new IITs and Indian Institutes of Technology, IT-BHU Varanasi, and ISM Dhanbad use the exam.

The exam is conducted by the various IITs by a policy of rotation. The number of participants in IIT-JEE this year was around 5.7 lakhs (as per sale of application forms). Last year it was 4.2 lakhs and in 2008 it was 3.5 lakhs. It shows a rising trend among students showing interest in the IIT-JEE. On the other hand AIEEE has a larger number of institutes in its realm and correspondingly larger, about 10 lakh students, apply for the same. The National Institutes of Technology, especially those which are old like the ones in Trichy, Warangal, Surat and Jalandhar, have an enviable reputation and are considered almost at par with the IITs. Nearly 40 other instiutes too use the AIEEE score to select students. In the coming pages three experts decode the exams individually and provide you the ideal plan to crack the exam.
