Joint Entrance Exam
The number of students aspiring for the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) has decreased this year. Last year around 3 lakh students took the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) and this year there are around 2.5 lakh students who will be appearing for the JEE. With the decrease in applicants the student's seat ratio has also decreased. This year around 55 students will have a tough fight for a single seat in IIT as compared to 74 students last year. The Joint Admission Board has also revised the pattern of JEE. JEE 2007 will have only two papers each with a mixed bag of questions from the three subjects i.e. Physics, Chemistry and Maths. As previously there were three papers each on Physics, Chemistry, Maths.
