Engineering Entrance Exam » AIEEE »

Kind Attention to AIEEE Aspirants : AIEEE under New Format. AIEEE Conducted by CBSE would now be known as JEE Main. CBSE has announced the detailed information about JEE Main 2014 Entrance Exam.
( For Paper 1 and Paper 2 ) & 09th, 11th, 12th & 19th April, 2014 ( For Paper 1 Only ) by the JEE Apex Board for admission to Undergraduate Engineering Programs in NITs, IIITs, other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions, participating State Government Institutions etc.. |

**AIEEE Syllabus 2013 :**

AIEEE Exam Papers have the choice of appearing for any one of the two types of papers or both. Paper I is for those who wish to opt only for BE / BTech Courses in colleges accepting AIEEE ranks while Paper II is for those who wish to pursue a course in B.Arch. / B.Planning.

**Paper I : **This is a three – hour paper comprising three sections : Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. There are 30 questions in each of the three subjects. The questions are of objective type ie multiple – choice questions with a single correct answer.

In each section there are 26 questions of four marks each and four questions of eight marks each. One must be very careful while answering as there is 1 / 4th negative marking for every question.

**Paper II :** This three – hour paper consists of Mathematics, Aptitude and Drawing.

The Mathematics section has 35 – 40 objective type multiple – choice questions with a single correct option and 1 / 4th negative marking. In this part, the syllabus for Mathematics comprises common topics from Class XI / XII, CBSE / State board.

The Aptitude section has 10 – 15 objective multiple – choice questions with four options and 1 / 4th negative marking. This will test a student on visualising three – dimensional objects from two – dimensional drawings, visualising different sides of three – dimensional objects and also analytical reasoning and mental ability. The Aptitude Test is designed to evaluate a candidate’s perception, imagination, observation, creativity and architectural awareness.

The Drawing section has two questions for 40 marks involving sketching of scenes and activities from memory of urbanscape ( public space, market, festivals, street scenes, monuments, recreational spaces etc ), landscape ( Fiver Fronts, Jungles, Gardens, Trees, Plants etc ) and rural life.

**AIEEE Exam Subjects and Difficulties**

Clearing AIEEE is not a difficult task. A systematic approach towards its preparation will help students get admission into one of the top National Institutes of Technology ( NITs ). AIEEE consists of CBSE syllabus of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics and some common topics from Class XI and XII of state boards. In AIEEE 2010, Mathematics and Physics were definitely difficult as compared to the previous year. Chemistry was relatively simple. About 25 per cent questions in the paper are easy, 50 per cent are average and 25 per cent difficult. The cut – off for AIEEE is generally between 60 to 70 per cent.

**AIEEE Exam Preparation **

Two Years of Planned, organised preparation for AIEEE is all that is required. Appropriate study material is the first thing an aspirant must have. Every set of problems needs to be approached differently and with a separate methodology.

Regular practice makes a student confident to tackle the problems. Speed and accuracy is the key to success.

**AIEEE Exam Strategies**

- Always transfer your answers to the ovals, five at a time. This will reduce the frequent and wasteful back and forth shuttling between the Question Paper and the Answer Sheet, during the exam.
- Proceed by the process of elimination ( POE ). Eliminating improbable options will help zero – in on the correct answers. This strategy will also help reduce the probability of errors while you make intelligent guesses.
- Guesstimate your calculations. For example, you can easily figure out that the product of 302 and 402 would be slightly greater than 120000 ( the product of 300 and 400 ). You may pick your choice accordingly.

Try these tips out and see how they work wonders for you.

**Analysis of AIEEE 2008**

If you closely study the AIEEE 2008 paper you will find that there were 105 questions each carrying three marks. The total marks were 315 out of which if you had scored 180+ marks you were safe to get a good college. On analysing last year’s paper it was found that in physics most of the questions were from Electricity, Magnetism, Modern Physics and Mechanics.

These topics comprised about 75 per cent to 80 per cent of the paper. About 35 per cent of the questions were easy and 60 per cent were neither too difficult nor too easy.

Chemistry is the broadest branch and one that is most scoring. An analysis of last year’s paper revealed that physical chemistry had 12 questions, organic chemistry 12 and inorganic chemistry 11.

What this shows is that physical, organic and inorganic chemistry are given equal weight in AIEEE.

Now the part which the students say is difficult – mathematics. Post the analysis it was found that chapters from Calculus and algebra are the most repeated in the previous year papers of AIEEE. In AIEEE 2008, 24 questions were there from these two topics alone.

**Analysis of AIEEE 2009**

In AIEEE 2009 there was a marked change is the pattern of questions and marking scheme. The number of questions in each section was reduced to 30 but students found it tough as there were 24 questions of four marks and six questions of eight marks in each section along with 1 / 4th negative marking.

The eight – mark questions were time consuming and this was one reason why some students could not attempt many questions. In physics it was found that 40 per cent of the questions were easy, 52 per cent medium level and eight per cent difficult. More weight was given to chapters like heat and thermodynamics – 17 per cent, optics – 10 per cent, modern physics – 10 per cent, electronics and communication – 7 per cent and properties of matter – 3 per cent.

In mathematics, 32 per cent of the questions were easy, 58 per cent average level of difficulty and 10 per cent difficult. More weight was given to chapters like coordinate geometry – 13 per cent, integral Calculus – 10 per cent, vector – 3, dimensional geometry and determinants – 10 per cent and trigonometry – 3 per cent.

In chemistry, 40 per cent of the questions were easy, 50 per cent had a medium level of difficulty and 10 per cent were difficult. A 40 per cent weight was given to physical chemistry and 27 per cent to inorganic chemistry.

After going through the new marking scheme and level of difficulty of the papers we could conclude that if a student secured more that 225 out of 432’s / he could be sure of getting into one of the 20 NITs.
