AIEEE Facts & Information
The examination consists of two papers: Paper 1 and Paper 2.
Paper 1 has three sections: Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry with equal weight for each subject. Each section consists of multiple choice objective-type questions each of which has four choices. Out of the four choices for a given question, only one choice is correct. Paper 1 has a negative-marking scheme wherein an incorrect answer is negatively marked with one fourth of the maximum marks allotted to the question.
Paper 2 has three sections: Mathematics, Drawing, and Aptitude. Mathematics, and Drawing sections have multiple choice objective-type questions and the Aptitude section has drawing-based questions. The duration of each paper is three hours. Candidates are not allowed to carry any textual material, calculators, logarithmic tables or electronic devices into the examination hall. The number of questions and their maximum marks have been variable through the years. The questions are based on a syllabus that is common to syllabi of all the state boards in India and the Central Board of Secondary Education. Candidates can opt for question papers either in English or in Hindi language. For admission to B.Tech or B.E. courses in the participating institutes the candidate is required to take the Paper 1; for admission to B.Arch or B. Planning courses the candidate is required to take Paper 2. Students can opt to take any one or both the papers. The examination was conducted in offline pen and paper mode till 2010. In 2011, as per the orders of the Ministry of Human Resource Development, CBSE conducted the Paper 1 in the Computer-Based-Test mode for the first one lakh candidates who opted for the same, while the remaining students took the examination in the conventional pen and paper mode. The number of attempts which a candidate can avail at the examination is limited to three in consecutive years.
The Central Counselling Board coordinates the admissions to the under-graduate courses in the participating institutes. Though nearly one million students take the exam only small percentage of students are eligible for central counselling or state-specific or category-specific counselling on basis of their AIR. For example, in 2010 1,065,100 students appeared at the exam, competing for approximately 26816 seats for BE/B.Tech and 936 seats for B.Arch/B.Planning. Counseling for SC/ST candidates and SC/ST physically handicapped candidates is done on the first two days. Then the physically handicapped in the Open (OP) category are counselled.
As declared by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), 50% of the seats in NITs will be filled from AIEEE eligible candidates of states where NITs are located and the remaining 50% will be filled on All India Merit basis. Whereas for IIIT's all of the seats are being filled through All India Merit Basis.
