IIITH PGEE 2013 Exam Pattern:

The entrance examination consists of two papers. There is no negative marking.

Paper I  : General aptitude (Compulsory)
Duration: 1 1/2 hours
Objective Type: Emphasis will be on basic aptitude, logical reasoning, basic questions on computers and mathematics.
Note:Candidates have to score a minimum cut-off score ito be eligible for evaluation of the chosen subject paper (Paper II).

Paper II : Subject paper (Paper II). Candidates have to choose the relevant subject papers as per the graduation degree specialization

1. Mathematics:
Duration: 1 1/2 hours
Syllabus: Elementary  Graph  Theory, Set Theory, Probability and Statistics, Combinatorics, Matrices, Complex  Variables, Differential Equations, Numerical Methods, Basic  number  theory.

2. Computer Science:
Duration : 1 1/2 hours
Syllabus: Fundamental Programming Concepts, Control Flow, Functions, Recursion, Basic Data Structures (arrays, lists, stacks, and queues), Basic algorithms (sorting and searching), Boolean Algebra, Digital Building Blocks (AND/OR/NAND/XOR Gates), Karnaugh's Maps, Computer Organisation, Number Systems. Capability to write programs in C or C++ is expected.

3. Electronics and Communications Engineering:
Duration: 1 1/2 hours
Note: The combined score of this subject paper and the general aptitude test will be the basis for selection for interview for the  following streams
(i) VLSI & Embedded Systems
(ii) Communication Systems and Signal Processing

  • This examination paper is divided into two parts: Part A (Electronics) and Part B (Signal Processing and Communication).
  • The individual score in PART A will have more weightage for selection into the stream `VLSI & Embedded Systems'.
  • Similarly, the individual score in PART B will have more weightage for selection into the stream `Communication Systems and Signal Processing'. )

Part A : Electronics:
Syllabus: Network Theory, Analog Devices (Diodes, BJTs), OPAMPs and Basic Analog Circuits. Boolean Algebra, Digital Building Blocks (Gates, Flip-Flops) Digital Circit Design. Signals, Systems, Filters, Transformations, Modulation, VLSI fundamentals.

Fundamentals of Linear Algebra: vectors, matrices, determinants, basis, Eigen vector and Eigen value, canonical forms, characteristic and minimal polynomial.
Communication systems: Amplitude and frequency modulation, single side-band modulation, PAM, PCM, PSK, FSK.
Fundamentals of information theory: measure of information, mutual information, entropy, capacity, lossless source coding schemes like Huffman code, run-length code etc., delta modulation.
Signal Processing: Fourier series, Fourier transform, discrete time Fourier series and fourier transform, discrete Fourier transform, FFT, z-transform, Properties of the above transforms, LTI systems, stability of LTI systems, IIR and FIR filters.
Communication networks: Layering hierarchies; circuit versus packet switching; virtual circuits; network mechanisms: multiplexing (TDM, Go back N), flow control, congestion control; ATM, TCP/IP.

4. Structural Engineering
Duration: 1 1/2 hours
Syllabus: Bending moments and shear forces in beams, stress and strain relations, principal stresses, Mohrs circle, simple bending theory, flexural and shear stresses, torsion, analysis of trusses and frames, analysis of indeterminate structures by force/displacement methods, matrix methods of structural analysis, working and limit state design concepts, design of compression members, beam, slab, footing, staircases, basic concepts of prestressed concrete, riveted and welded joints, steel beam column connections, plate girders and design of base plate.

Questions from engineering mathematics like determinants, matrices, limit, continuity and differentiability, mean value theorems, integral calculus, partial derivatives, maxima and minima, ordinary differential equations and applications, initial and boundary value problems, Laplace and Fourier transforms, test for convergence, sequences and series will also figure in the question paper inaddition to the syllabus mentioned above.  

5. PGEE for CCNSB Subject Paper:
Computational Natural Sciences and Bioinformatics
The combined scores of the scores in the subject paper and the general aptitude test will form the basis of selection for interview iew for the streams

Hello dear,
This exam is for those students who want to get enrolled themselves in master's program or PHD,the exam will be conducted in offline mode and this basically consists of two paper one is of objective and other one is of subjective type
Objective will be of general aptitude paper and for subjective you have your choice to opt the subject
Subjects are - mathematics ,computer science,electronics and communication ,structural engineering, computational National science and Bioinformatics and computational linguistics
Mathematics ,structural engineering and computational natural science and Bioinformatics  are of subjective type
Computer science is of objective type
Electronics and communication ,and computational and linguistics are of both objective and subjective type.
Good luck

I got 86.17 percentile in jee and SC Category can I get the IIIT Hyderabad CSE

Swati Umang 22nd Feb, 2020

Hello! Hope you are doing good

According to your score, you common rank is around 1.2 lakhs. It seems to be a bit difficult to get into IIIT with this rank. The cutoff changes every year so it is higy predictable as to whether or not you'll be admitted.

To keep a check on the previous years trends, please check the following link: https://www.google.com/amp/s/engineering.careers360.com/articles/jee-main-cutoff-for-top-iiits/amp

All the best


by which exams we can apply for iiit Hyderabad

manoj kashyap 19th Feb, 2020

Hey Nehal,

IIIT Hyderabad takes admission through two different ways for B-tech course.

1.JEE MAINS:- IIIT Hyderabad intakes students in basis of their JEE mains marks for 4-year B-tech courses in computers and electronics Branch only.

2. UGEE:- This is an exam conducted but IIIT Hyderabad itself to screen in candidates for integrated master's courses. The exam is followed by an interview as well.

The UGEE mode is for admission to dual degree programmes. Graduates of the dual degree programmes earn two degrees: B-Tech and MS. The Masters degree requires completion of a research thesis. The programme prepares students for research-oriented jobs and higher studies. The duration of the programme is 5-years.

There is one more way to get into IIIT HYD that is their LATERAL ENTRY SCHEME through which students studying in their 1st-year at their college can take admission based on a aptitude test and an interview.


how much total marks of paper 1 & paper 2? how many questions in both paper?

Rishikesh Shandilya 14th Feb, 2020
Hello Aspirant,

JEE Main paper 1 contains 75 question physics chemistry and Mathematics each 25 question with a maximum marks of 300.

While JEE Main paper 2, in B.arch  a total of 77 question with Max marks of 400,for b.planning it's 100 question for 400 marks.

Hope this helps you
Good Luck
