The AIEEE and IIT-JEE are two engineering entrance exams held every year in which lakhs of students appear. Since the competition is very tough, no one wants to take chances and it is not is not a bad idea at all to appear in both of them. However, knowing the differences between the two can make your work easier as you can weigh the pros & cons associated and decide accordingly.
Here is a list of the differences between the two exams.
|It is conducted by the Central board of secondary Education.||It is conducted by the IITs.|
|The maximum number of times a student can appear for this exam is limited to three in three consecutive years.||The maximum number of attempts is limited to two in two consecutive years|
|The score is used for admission in NITs, IIITs, self financed universities, deemed universities, institutions, colleges, etc.||The score is used only by the 15 IITs (Indian Institutes of Technology), ISM-Dhanbad(Indian School of Mines) and IT-BHU (Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University)|
|Cracking the AIEEE demands speed and accuracy.||IIT-JEE is about building the right concepts and proper application of the concepts.|
|It is easier to prepare for your boards and the AIEEE as the board syllabus gels quite well with the AIEEE syllabus.||IIT-JEE demands an entirely different approach which is not in sync with the board syllabus and therefore, it is difficult to prepare them together.|
|The AIEEE paper is comparatively less conceptual and more about speed and accuracy.||The IIT-JEE paper is more conceptual and focuses on fundamentals|
|The AIEEE exam is being conducted partly online from 2011 and there are quite fair chances that it will become entirely online in few years.||The IIT-JEE, till now, has not been conducted online.|
Now that the list is before you charting a proper strategy (Also see : The sap of success in AIEEE) for the two would not be a problem. You can comprehend the differences and decide the strategy that suits you the best.
