Info about ISEET

IIT-JEE happens to be one of the most desirously attempted exams by many students. Dreams and desires are packed together to compete in the exam helping one gain admissions in any one of the prestigious IITs of our country. This coveted exam will be replaced by an exam known as ISEET – Science Engineering Entrance Test, covering the groups of students attempting for IIT-JEE. This will be the only exam that students aspiring to get into the engineering field will have to take up. No more of separate prep for AIEEE and IIT-JEE, it’s all going to be one single exam, making lives of many students much easier.

ISEET is all set to change the lives of many students by making it easy to prepare for entrance exams. Since ISEET clubs two major entrance exams (IIT-JEE and AIEEE) we can expect about 15L students appearing in 2013. This exam is going to be managed and conducted by CBSE. Over time, our government plans on putting an end to all the engineering entrance exams conducted by individual states to make it easy on the children.

The next question is – what forms a part of this test? ISEET has 2 parts

ü  ISEET Main –It is for duration of 3 hours comprising of reading comprehension, critical thinking and logical reasoning to test the student’s abilities. 30% of the total scores are taken into consideration.

ü  ISEET Advanced – This is also for duration of 3 hours comprises of Problem Solving Ability in Basic Science Subjects. Weightage considered in this section is 30%.

You would be wondering what happens to the remaining 40%. This 40% is taken from your academic records of Class 12 or equivalent. Based all the three scores, a final score is arrived at, which will then be used for awarding admissions in the various colleges.

The various other colleges which accept AIEEE scores will decide on the weightage that they would like to give for the academic scores and base their admissions on it. For all those who are going to give the exams next year, just relax and log in to our website from time to time to find out more tips, suggestions and other information regarding ISEET exams. Happy reading.

  15. sourabh says:

  16. balpreet says:

    i appeared for iit and aieee in 2011 and 2012…i want to ask that can i appear in iseet 2013…???

    • padmaja says:

      Hi Balpreet,
      There is no particular eligibility criteria which talks about this. The eligibility criteria only states that a student must have passed Class12 with a minimum of 40% in the science stream.
      So, all the best,

  17. malay says:

    what you think ? jee highest cut off goes to 70or 75% only so would be a person clear jee if he do not well in mains+advance & he top in class 12.

    • padmaja says:

      Hi Malay,
      Please note that only 15 IITs, 30 NITs, 4 IIITs, 5 IISERs and a few deemed universities are the participants in ISEET 2013. Irrespective of your score in the exam or class 12, the percentage of marks taken is 30+30+40. So, you will have to be a top scorer to be on the top list of scorers.

  18. suman says:

    i m just appeared in IIT 2012..,i want to ask that-’is it right for preparing for ISEET 2013 through coaching’ ?

    It is better to look at the positive aspects of the ISEET proposed. ISEET should be conducted from 2013 onwords. It will do away with multiple entrance examinations and reduce the stress levels of students. Whether the weightage of Class 12 Board examinations will be only for group marks or group and languages together. What is meant that Weightage: At least 40% to Class XII Board Exams (Can go up to 100%). Pl clarify

    • padmaja says:

      Hi Murali,
      The weightage we are talking here, refers to the percentage of marks that is considered. You can see that ISEET Main and Advanced are two different tests. The total scores from each of these tests are converted to 30% each and the remaining 40% is taken from academics.
      For example: If you receive 80/100 in ISEET Main and 75/100 in Advanced, convert both the scores to 30%, which is 24% + 22.5% = 46.5% in your ISEET and the remaining 40% is taken from your Class 12 exam results.
      This is how it works. Hope it clarifies your doubt.

  21. will the board percentage of repeaters be considered for iseet 2013
