Engineering Entrance Exams
Aakash IIT JEE is meant for preparing students for engineering entrance examinations, those who dream to pursue a career in Engineering from the best engineering colleges of India.
Most of the entrance tests for IITs, IIITs, NITs, CFTIs and other Engineering Colleges in India are held in the months of April / May / June for the academic year starting July / August and results of these tests are published in the months of June/ July/ August.
Ministry of Human Resource & Development (MHRD), Govt. of India had directed in 2013 to conduct combined entrance tests for all IITs, NITs, IIITs, and all other State & IIT-JEE affiliated Engineering colleges in India in two phases called – JEE (Main) & JEE (Advanced). There will be common entrance tests for admissions in undergraduate degree programs in India's government as well as private Engineering/Science Institutions/Colleges/Universities including the IITs.
Generally the syllabus of the engineering entrance test is based on the course outline of the class XI and XII and as well as NCERT. The motto of the test is to assess the basic knowledge and fundamentals of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. However in some specific tests, questions are asked on MAT, English, Logical Reasoning and Drawing etc.
In case of JEE (Advanced), Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics are given equal importance with 20 questions in each subject of 60 marks along with negative marks in some sections. Maximum marks are 180. Whereas in JEE (Main), 30 questions in each subject of 90 marks having Objective and Assertion-Reason type questions with equal weightage of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. There is 1/4th negative marking for incorrect response. Total marks are 360.
In case of VITEEE, 40 questions in each part with equal weightage of PART-I: Physics, PART-II: Chemistry, PART-III: Mathematics/ Biology. Total no. of questions is 120. Each question carry one mark whereas in case of BITSAT, there are 4 parts as Part-I: Physics-40, Part-II: Chemistry-40, Part-III: (a) English Proficiency-15 and (b) Logical Reasoning-10, Part-IV: Mathematics-45 questions. Total 150 questions, each question carry 3 marks.
