AIEEE ( All India Engineering Entrance Examination )

The All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) is an examination organized by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in India. This test is for admission to various under-graduate engineering and architecture courses in institutes accepting the AIEEE score. Candidates are ranked on an all India basis and also according to their position in state including 20 NITs.. Thus, they have an All India Rank (AIR) and a state rank (SR).
a common entrance examination on all India basis for admission to professional and technical programmes in the country. For admission to Engineering and Architecture/Planning programmes, Government of India vide Resolution dated 18th October 2001 has laid down a Three  Exam Scheme (JEE and AIEEE at the National Level and the State Level Engineering Entrance Examinations (SLEEE) for State Level Institutions  with an option to join AIEEE). This takes care of varying admission standards in these programmes and helps in maintenance of professional standards. This also solves problems of overlaps and reduces physical, mental and financial burden on students and their parents due to multiplicity of entrance examinations.
The seventh All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) was held on 27th April' 2008. 7,92,752 candidates appeared, out of 8,62,853 candidates registered, for the examination at 1298 centres located in 75 cities. Approximately, 17,163 seats for B E/B.Tech and 759 seats for B.Arch/ B. Planning in various institutions, namely National Institutes of Technology, Deemed Universities, Technical Institutions and other Govt. funded Institutions were offered through this examination. A centralized counselling had been organized for filling up the All India seats. The States/Institutes listed below used AIEEE-2008 ranks to fill seats through their own counselling:- West Bengal, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Uttarakhand, Punjab University, Chandigarh, Punjab Engineering College, Chandigarh, Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology, Gandhinagar, Army Institute of Technology, Pune, 15% all India quota for D C E/ N.S.I.T, Delhi under Delhi University. Keeping in view greater variety of subjects offered by different School Boards at the 10+2 (Class  XII) level, more subject combinations in qualifying examination (10+2) would now be possible. For the convenience of candidates, provision for on-line submission of Application Form has also been made. In 2007, around 8,50,000 wrote the AIEEE and in 2008 around 9,50,000 (a whopping 1,00,000 increment) applicants have already been registered making it one of the largest such admission exams in the world.[2]
All candidates, with the exception of those performing very poorly, are eligible either for central counselling or state-specific or category-specific counselling on basis of their AIR. Counselling for SC/ST candidates and SC/ST physically handicapped candidates is done on the first two days of counselling. Then the physically handicapped in the Open (OP) category are counselled.
The Pattern keeps varying every year as declared by CBSE, the conducting authority of AIEEE. The level of questions follows the NCERT Syllabus of Class 11 and Class 12. From the past 2 years the total marks of the paper is being declared by CBSE in the prospectus without declaring the number of the questions appearing in the exam on the lines of IIT JEE.
In 2008, the AIEEE pattern was similar to that of IIT-JEE, with more applicative questions in mathematics and physics sections.
This year many other institutions are expected to admit students through AIEEE. Decision in this regard will be taken by the Central Counselling Board to be constituted by MHRD and a list of tentative institutions joining the CCB will be placed on the website of CCB i.e.

Scheme of Examination

 Entrance examination would consist of two papers i.e. 1st paper consisting of three parts of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics of equal weightage with objective type questions for BE/B.Tech courses and 2nd paper  consisting of Mathematics,Aptitude Test and Drawing for B. Architecture and B. Planning. The Aptitude Test is designed to evaluate candidate s perception, imagination, observation, creativity and architectural awareness.
Scoring and Negative Marking
There will be objective type questions with four options having single correct answer. For each incorrect response one fourth (1/4) of the total marks allotted to the question would be deducted. No deduction from the total score will, however, be made if no response is indicated for an item in the answer sheet. The candidates are advised not to attempt such item in the answer sheet if they are not sure of the correct response. More than one answer indicated against a question will be deemed as incorrect response and will be negatively marked. All objective type questions are required to be answered on specially designed machine gradable answer sheets. Answers are to be marked using ball point pen (black/blue) only. For the purpose of evaluation, Test Booklet Code as printed in the Answer Sheet on Side-2 will be accepted as final.

Subject combination for each paper & type of questions in each paper are given in the table below :

Paper 1
