Engineering entrance exams

There are many engineering entrance exams in India. Some of them are listed below:


These exams are primarily based on the syllabus covered in the 11th and 12th and mathematics and science from 1st to 10th standard. So the students who are good in mathematics and science can score high marks in these exam if they prepare by well guided way.

CBSC and ICSC and also there are many state level boards like Maharashtra State board conducting these exams each years. But there is a problem for different boards’ students which are going to apply for same engineering college. Because both of them are appearing different exams and it is very difficult to choose them because of different pattern of the syllabus they studied. Hence the engineering colleges consider the 50% marks of the 12th level of the student and 50% entrance exam marks.
