IIT JEE Seats Distribution – A Report

IIT seat distribution can be analyzed from the below given facts. In 2007 out of 2, 43,029 appeared for IIT JEE. IIT JEE short listed 7,200 students. Out of it only 5,537 will get a chance to study in one of the prestigious IITs, IT-BHU or ISM. The IIT JEE result was poorest from IIT Kanpur, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Roorkee and IIT Guwahati Zone. These represent poor and backward states of the country including Bihar.

Total Number of Seats in IITs + ISM + IT BHU = 5,537

The age limit for appearing in IIT JEE is 25 years. For candidates belonging to SC, ST and PD categories, the relaxed age limit is 30 years. Also, starting 2007, a candidate can take the JEE two times at the most. This has been done mainly to reduce stress on students and discourage the concept of “cram schools” — where students are made to memorize all types of possible exam questions. Furthermore, from 2007 onwards, students who are selected for admission to an IIT cannot attempt the examination again in the future. As above the national success rate is merely 2%, which is an obvious output for a competitive examination, like IIT JEE?

Now let us take a look of the situation in Bihar, particularly Patna. Every year more than fifteen thousand students appear in IIT JEE from here. The number of selected ones is a mere 60 or 70. The success rate is 0.4 %. It’s really alarming. The performance from other towns of Bihar is even worse. Why is it like this when some places boast of sending more than 60% students to IITs? The situation is pathetic and it really needs a wise thought.
