Computer Based Test Pen and Paper Mode
 Merits of the modes
It will be held in a window of multiple days and slots. Hence, giving candidates a chance to choose the exam day and time. Candidates are already familiar with pen and paper mode and do not find it difficult.
The exam centres for CBT are more in comparison to P&P. Last year there were 67 AEEE Exam Centers for CBT, whereas, for P&P there were only 36 centres. The offline examination will be held a little late, after the conclusion of the online examination. The candidates opting for P&P will have more time to prepare for the exam.
Demerits of the modes
More and more candidates are opting for the online exam. Hence, there is a possibility that the most preferred centre will not be allocated.   Will only be held on a particular day and slot, which may collide with other exam dates as well.
The number of online test takers is increasing every year and the slot booking is done on the first-cum-first basis. Due to this, the candidate might miss the desired slot. Fewer exam centres option will limit the choices of the candidates.

Which mode is better?

Both the CBT and P&P mode of examination has pros and cons but the candidates should opt for the online AEEE 2017 if they are comfortable with the basics of computer. Else, handling the system on the exam day will become a task which will lower the speed of the candidates.
