  • Venkat created a new topic Impact of quotas: BITS Pilani & NIT Trichy in the forums.
    Just had a look at data released by NIT Trichy and compared it with BITS Pilani. Both sets of data are for 2011.
    In NITT, the people who joined Computer Science had AIEEE marks varying from 286 (Open Category; All India) to 55 (State Category; ST). The AIR varied from 500 to 2,62,839. In EEE, the marks ranged from 275 to 38 and the ranks from 905 to 4,39,303.
    In BITS Pilani, CS was given to people with a score of 342 or above (342 is a very good score in BITSAT).
    Are these stats indicative of peer group and competition? And the difficulty/ease of getiing high CGPA (since it is relative grading)?
    Any views? Need to make a decision soon.

  • Venkat created a new topic Did online candidates suffer? in the forums.
    Initial indications from Chennai seem to indicate that people who took the online exam have got surprisingly low ranks. I wonder it CBSE made some 'normalisation' to the scores after the exams. All papers were supposed to be of the same level.
    Besides, many people in Chennai (who took online exam) got marks significantly lower than expected.
    Has there been a similar experience elsewhere?

    Thanks, Jayanth. The reason I raised this question is that I heard NITT guys say this, and wanted to know if there was any truth in it.

    On the BITS side, I know for a fact that keeping CGPA above 7 or 8 calls for a lot of hard work since many guys continue to study in college as they did for JEE/BITSAT. Those who lead more balanced lives seldom get very high CGPA.

    Also, the GPA slots in BITS are 10, 8, 6,4... rather than 10, 9, 8, 7... you find in other institutions. So, a CGPA of 8 means different things in BITS and NITs/IITs.

    Thanks all, for your comments.
     
    One point I did not see brought up is about maintaining high CGPA. I hear that one has to work very hard in Pilani to maintain a high CGPA, especially in CS & EEE.
     
    I also hear that it is not such a big problem in NIIT due to state and caste reservation (Combined, 75% reservation). AIEEE All India Ranks for open quote for state students (Tamil Nadu) goes to about 12k to 16k (as per CCB website). Guess this helps in maintaining a high CGPA?
     
    I am told that one can easily get an 8+ CGPA Trichy but even a 7+ CGPA in Pilani is a fight.
     
    Any views on this point?

    Is anyone in a position to compare Computer Science in BITS Pilani and NIT Trichly?
    Also EEE in BITS Pilani and NIT Trichly?
    Thanks.

    Just got an email response from AIEEE:

    "The candidates will receive the admit cards by 15th April 2012 (If particulars are available on AIEEE Website)."

    Nope. With many holidays last week, is it going to take longer?

    Why cant CBSE give clearer answers? Anyone with contacts there? If so, can you please check the latest status and lets us know? Thanks in advance.

    Thank you.

    Mails to CBSE/AIEEE don't seem to elicit responses. The last date for receipt for Admit Card as per their brochure is the day after tomorrow (5 Apr). The least they can do it to keep candidates informed through their web site. Or they should have the facility to have it downloaded from the web site.

    Guess we'll have to wait. But please do post a message when people start receiving it.

    I know of three people who have opted out of COMEDK - all of them ranks better than 1700. All of them were pretty sure of RVCE/PESIT/MSRIT. I guess more would be dropping out due to continued delays.
