JEE 2015 (Main): Learn from Experience of 2014 Toppers

The Joint Entrance Exam (Main) is a prerequisite for admission to the undergraduate engineering and architecture programmes at the Indian Institutes of Technology, National Institutes of Technology, Indian Institutes of Information Technology and other Centrally-funded technical institutions.

This year’s JEE (Main) promises to come up with its own set of challenges. Learning from the experience of successful candidates can be fairly useful when it comes to last minute preparations. HT Education spoke to two students who were among the top rankers in 2014 to find out what worked for them.

Nihal Poosa, a student of IIT Bombay, has interesting advice to share. “The focus should be on solving problems faster. I set aside 10 minutes for filling the answers on the OMR sheet and another 10 minutes for attempting the questions I found difficult initiallly. I suggest that candidates should give the first preference to mathematics, followed by physics and then chemistry while solving the paper. The lengthy questions can be left aside for the end.

I devoted one hour each to mathematics and physics and about 40 minutes to chemistry. Go for the exam with a relaxed mind. I did not study for three days before the exam. A week before that, I solved two mock papers a day. My focus was to revise the key points,” says Poosa. The crucial topics, according to Poosa, are calculus and vector algebra in mathematics and mechanics in physics.

For Sai Chetan Chinthakindi, who bagged all-India rank 14 in the JEE (Main) 2014, mastering the basics is the key.

“You should also go about cracking the chemistry section first. Mathematics and physics require a lot of practice which you can get by solving previous years’ questions papers. I made it a point to revise the basic fundamentals regularly. You must make it a point to cross-check the calculations.

My aim was to get a score of 340 but anything above 320 is considered good. I recommend that students should refer to these books besides the NCERT... Fundamentals of Physics by HC Verma and New Pattern for IIT-JEE mathematics by Arihant publishers,” says Chinthakindi.

Zero or Even Negative JEE Score Enough for Engg Admission?

NAGPUR: Ever since the Maharashtra government declared that the admissions to first year engineering courses would be conducted through Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) from 2014-15 academic session, there is a lot of confusion among the aspirants on eligibility criteria.

Mumbai-based Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) that conducts the admissions has clarified that even candidates scoring zero or negative marks in JEE would be eligible but they needed to score at least 50% aggregate (45% for reserved category) in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics (PCM) group in their board exams. Till last year, the admissions were made through MHT-CET and any non-zero score was enough.

New Eligibility Norms for Engineering Admissions:

* Candidates must appear JEE Mains
* Even zero or negative score in JEE would be enough
* JEE Advanced score would not be taken into account
* Should score at least 50% marks in PCM (45% for SC/ST) in board exam
* 50% weightage each for JEE and PCM marks (board) while preparing merit list
* Admission to autonomous colleges also to be made through JEE score
DTE to conduct four rounds and no separate round for autonomous colleges

JEE Mains 2014: Andhra Pradesh Retains Top Spot with 22,000 making it to JEE Advanced

Almost 22,000 candidates from Andhra Pradesh have qualified to appear for JEE (Advanced ), scheduled for May 25. The state thus retains the pole position even this year, a daily reports.

The JEE (Mains) topper is also an Andhra Pradesh student. Pramod Vakacharla from Sulurapeta in Nellore district scored 355 out of 360 to bag the top spot.

Uttar Pradesh with its largest population of class XII passouts is the immediate follower with 19,409 making it to the JEE Advanced. Rajasthan, home to the popular IIT coaching hub of Kota, finished at the third with 16,806 students qualifying this year. However, Bihar slipped to fifth position despite 1,210 more students qualifying than last year.

Maharashtra, however, fared remarkably well this year jumping few spots to hold fourth place on the list with an almost 47 per cent increase in successful candidates as compared to the last year.

The top five states - Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Maharashtra and Bihar - contributed more than 80,000 of the 1.54 lakh students (53.3 per cent) who have qualified for the JEE (Advanced), the entrance test to get admission to the Indian Institutes of Technology.

Gujarat, a state just out of the top five, also showed significant improvement with a 35 per cent rise in the number of students qualifying for the advanced exam.

After Maharashtra, Kerala, among the top 10 states, saw the biggest jump of 46.1 per cent in candidates qualifying for the advanced exam. In absolute numbers, Andhra's 21,818 successful candidates (19.6 per cent rise) towers over Kerala's 6,602.

Delhi's performance remained steady with 7,629 students getting to take a shot at entering the IITs as against 7,478 in 2013.

Registration for JEE Advanced has already started. The cut-off mark for the JEE Main 2014, Paper 1 (for admission to undergraduate IIT courses like BE and BTech) is 115 in the Common Merit List (general) category, compared to 113 last year.

For non-IITs like the National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs), the final admission would be based on a final ranking list based on JEE-Main scores (60 per cent weightage) and Class 12 exam marks (40 per cent weightage), after the board exam marks are normalised to eliminate the variations in marks given by different boards.
