IIT-JEE tilted towards CBSE, Andhra Pradesh and Rajasthan boards

imagesAs per the latest analysis,  it has been revealed that the success rate of the JEE 2013 for admission to Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) has been heavily tilted towards three boards, primarily CBSE and four cities,reports HT

CBSE, Andhra Pradesh and Rajasthan boards accounted for nearly 80% of those qualified. While CBSE constituted 56% of those qualified, the next was Andhra 17%, followed by Rajasthan 7%. A maximum number of 58,587 students registered from CBSE, followed by 17,360 from Andhra board and 8,738 from Rajasthan board.

IIT-JEE tilted towards CBSE, Andhra Pradesh and Rajasthan boards. Another important fact is that two exams JEE (main) for selection to the NITs and JEE (advanced) for selection to IITs have no co-relation as the topper of JEE (advanced) does not figure anywhere in the top 100 list of JEE (main).

Among cities, Jaipur with a total number of 2,188 qualifiers heads the list. With 1,900 from Delhi, 1,702 from Hyderabad and 1,088 from Vijaywada, the four cities took nearly 33% of the share. The number of qualifiers from North East  is again poor — Gangtok 0, Shillong 2, Itanagar 2,  Imphal 6, Silchar 4, Siliguri 34, Jorhat 25. Ten students qualified from Dubai – the only centre outside India. While the selection is heavily tilted towards big cities, small cities like Sikar 317, Mathura 115, Bareilly 93, Gaya 46, Katihar 32 and Malda 15 have shown encouraging trends.
