Ques. What exam must one clear and with what cutoff to get into IIIT Hyderabad?

● Top Answer By suyashi choubey on 19 Mar 21

Ans. There are different examinations to get admission at IIIT Hyderabad. The mode of admission at the institute is as follows.  JEE Main: Ensure that you score 270+ in the JEE Main to get a seat in a course of your interest. Through this mode, you can even take admission for all branches except CLD, CHD. Test and Interview: If you want to get a seat in the CLD or CHD course can definitely go for this mode of admission.  In this mode, you will experience at first a test and after that, all who clear the test will be called for a Personal Interview.  However, there is no definite cutoff for the test, but you need to give your personal best to qualify for the interview. NTSE, KVPY: First, you have to clear a test. Those who qualify for the test are called for a Personal Interview.  From there, candidates are selected for admission. However, this mode of admission is for the CND course only. DASA mode: This mode is especially meant for the students who have studied 11th and 12th(or equivalent) outside India and are valid foreign passport holders. Generally, all branches accept admission through this mode.  A valid SAT II score of above 2000 is a must-needed criterion. SAT I score is taken into consideration in case of ties. Olympiad mode: This mode is only applicable for students who have been selected for training in Science and Linguistics to represent India in International Olympiads.  In this mode, students are chosen through a Personal Interview. Admissions are granted for CSD, ECD, CND, BSD, and CLD branches. Lateral Entry:  In order to get a seat through this mode of admission, there is a test and a personal interview round. Generally, children are admitted to the second year in IIIT-H through lateral entry. As what other colleges teach in 2 years, IIIT-H teaches in the first year itself. This mode of admission is meant for students who have completed their first two years of engineering in either Computer Science or Electronics branch from any other college. Students are admitted to the CSD branch if they were in the Computer Science branch in their college or to ECD if they were in the Electronics branch.Read more

Ques. Which one is better, dropping a year for the BITSAT and JEE, or joining universities such as LPU or Amity?

● Top Answer By Rupesh Biswas on 12 Feb 21

Ans. Every candidate has their own perspectives and reasons for dropping a year or opting for a degree in any institute. It entirely depends upon your thoughts and decisions, and what you actually want from your career. The points mentioned below can be considered as a set of guidelines that would help to choose the right path. There are several choices which you can make in case of admission. You can prefer a good renowned government college and take any available stream in it, or a good private college (BITS, Thapar, etc) and choose your favorite stream. Considering the fact that you are comfortable with the high fees of the private institutes. Having an educational gap (drop) of one year is not a bad thing for a future career. Most candidates get to learn a lot of things from the self-available time, even some have genuine reasons for the drop. So, if you are extremely passionate about a stream, it is absolutely all-right to drop for a year. Check for the 50% quota for insiders in your home state NIT. If present, it will increase the chances of getting some stream in it. Usually, it is considered that the stream matters much less. What matters is the college name tag. There are several other institutes like Punjab University, UIET, etc which provide good infrastructure and opportunities. JAC is a committee for counseling in some good institutes in Chandigarh. These are some of the basics tips that would help you in the decision-making process.Read more

Ques. Which is better: JEE or BITSAT?

● Top Answer By Aniket Atul Mahulikar on 20 Jan 21

Ans. Both JEE and BITSAT are competitive entrances and comparing the two is not a good decision. Instead, try to focus on understanding the basics and concepts since the syllabus for the two entrances is pretty much the same. If you prepare religiously for JEE Advanced then you will be able to ace all engineering entrance exams including JEE Main and BITSAT. The table given below gives a brief comparison of the exams: Exam JEE Advanced BITSAT Mode of Exam Computer-based Test Computer-based Test Duration 3 Hours 3 Hours Type of Questions Multiple Choice Questions, Numerical Aptitude Questions Multiple Choice Questions Negative Marking Yes Yes  Syllabus Physics, Chemistry, Maths Physics, Chemistry, Maths, English and Logical Reasoning  JEE Preparation: JEE Advanced paper includes questions primarily from Physics, Chemistry and Maths, thus, try to give these topics enough time and practice.  While it is best to focus on JEE Advanced, it is equally important to prepare for BITSAT since the exam syllabus contains not only Physics, Chemistry, and Maths but also English and Logical Reasoning. BITSAT Preparation: Cracking BITSAT is all about technique and speed so try to practice online mock tests, previous year papers, and cover topics like English and Logical Reasoning to score better in the exams.  You should devote at least 3 months to BITSAT, three months are enough if you have a clear understanding of your basics and a strong foundation. Try not to compare the two exams; instead, focus on clearing your basics with the aim of cracking JEE Advanced so that you can score well in both JEE and BITSAT.Read more

Ques. Which books have you used for the JEE Main and the BITSAT?

● Top Answer By Sudeshna Bhar on 20 Jan 21

Ans. There are several books you can refer to for the preparation of JEE Main and BITSAT exams. But the most important thing to do is to focus on NCERTs and practice online mock tests, previous year question papers, and question banks for every subject. It is equally important to study the exam pattern, type of questions, and syllabus of JEE Main and BITSAT before purchasing any reference book.  Subjectwise Books for JEE Main and BITSAT- Physics: Concepts of Physics by H.C. Verma: The best book for Physics. The book contains several practice questions for you to solve. Fundamental Physics by Halliday, Resnick, and Walker: It contains all the relevant topics. Understanding Physics by DC Pandey: This is the ideal book for JEE entrances; it covers all the relevant questions and topics.  Prep Guide to BITSAT by Arihant publications is a good book for BITSAT. Chemistry: Physical Chemistry: Modern Approach to Chemical Calculations by RC Mukherjee. It contains several practice questions for your reference. Organic Chemistry: A book by Paula Y. Bruice: It is the best for clearing doubts and building a strong foundation in Organic Chemistry. Inorganic Chemistry: Concise Inorganic Chemistry by J.D.Lee: The book covers all the relevant topics and contains several questions The Cengage set of 6 books by KS Verma. Mathematics: New Pattern JEE Mathematics Arihant Publications by SK Goyal. Algebra, Different Calculus, Integral Calculus, Vector, and 3D Geometry by Arihant Publication. A problem book in mathematical Analysis by G.N. Berman Mathematics for JEE Advanced by G.Tewani IIT Mathematics for JEE by M.L. Khanna. Play with graphs by Amit Agrawal. Algebra by G Tewani All these books are great reference books for BITSAT and JEE Main but you must try to focus on NCERTs and practicing questions.Read more
