E.E (Engineering Education)

EE solves all ur problems!

If you have any question ,it would be my greatest pleasure to help you out, with whatever limited knowledge i have 🙂

If you want to contradict me , well, thats encouraged too, cause i like a good argument, and for the benefit of the readers 🙂

State board or CBSE for 11th ,12th


12th board marks arn’t really a priority for someone who wants to pursue engineering.Only certain minimum marks are required to be eligible for entrance exams which are ever more important , like IITJEE needs minimum 60%.To appear for BITSAT you’l need 80%..thats the highest you’l have to study for, and believe me noone will ever ask you bout your 12th marks after the initial ‘how you done’s,but your entrance exam ranks will decide your life..almost :)..

The syllabus for JEE, BITSAT, AIEEE and VITEEE are pretty similar , to each other and similar to the CBSE syllabus. Since board exams are not a priority ,there is an argument that students should join a state board college ,since in Maharashtra the academics are less time-consuming and easier compared to CBSE and ICSE.

I disagree though. From personal experience I can say that my CBSE high school education helped my tremendously in clearing AIEEE.If you want to focus on MHT-CET then you should go ahead with a HSC college, though why should a student aim for somthing low-gain when he might as well give a few of the most prestigious exams in the country a try.

A few more points

1) 12th HSC boards test both 11th and 12th syllabus, while CBSE tests only 12th syllabus.

2)The HSC syllabus is about 75% different from other exams. There is ample time after the other exams to brush up and learn the CET syllabus for CBSE students since JEE and AIEEE are held in April while CET is held in May.

JEE, AIEEE, BITSAT differ barelt 5% from each other . JEE is about 20% less that CBSE 11th and 12th syllabus , but has to be explored and understood far more in detail.

AIEEE syllabus is the same as CBSE.

BITSAT ans VITEEE are similar ,include a few more topics, delete a few.


So Gals and Guys, 11th and 12th are 2 very crucial years for those who want to make somthing of their lives..you have to study really really hard.
I’d said ‘almost’ earlier. I also know loads of people who decided ‘I’m going to shut out my life, my only priority is studies’. These guys will remain cooped up indoors all day with no time-out, no resfeshment, at the same time they might not even do very well academically.
The key is to maintain a healthy balance of studies and a little physical activity and enjoyment to keep the brain fit and happy.Not too much also because remember you’re investing your time and effort for wonderful rewards later in life.

What to do after 10th..

Its terrible that most people here in Pune don’t have any idea about the IITs and NITs . Its particularly insulting to my effort I’ve put in to get to NITW when people say “What? Your studying in Warangal(after I’v explained where warangal is that is)? Did you not get admission in Pune(as though I’m some failure studying on a management quota..I’ve qualified AIEEE for heaven’s sake),beta?” . Bharti Vidyapeeth,Pune came a distant 30-somthing according to last year’s engineering college rankings.

In Andhra Pradesh JEE coaching is big business.Its a perfect example of commercialization of education. All kinds of classes have mushroomed all over the state(I’v seen only Andhra, perhaps its like this other places too perhaps not) and leading the brigade are all those Narayanas and Chaitanyas. I apologise to those might have studied in these institutions but frankly I don’t approve of them , or the way students are kept locked up in their hostels ,with terrible food ,even worse living conditions..from what I’v heard from Narayana/Chaitanya ex-students or read in the newspapers. The 45K I paid for my coaching too I realize is dirt cheap, even by Pune coaching standards ..lol..the big fat recession proof education business.

Everywhere its the same actually..so I guess its up to the student to take the best out of his or her class..

What to do after 10th..


OK,actually this is what happened.
After my boards my friend Amulya told me about these free career counselling sessions. I attended one just for TP and I was like totally bowled over,the speaker Mr.Hora- he completely managed to convince me that this in what I should do in life- I should prepare for IITJEE.

What 2 do after 10th….

There was certain information I was looking for on the net, that I did not, that was first-hand info,for somone as blank as I was,about college. Hence I’l thought I’d share my story about my ’13th standard’ (thats what it was for me till a few years back 🙂 and everything leading up to it..
I remember ..this same time ,3 summers back, I was fresh out of St.Mary’s school with a 94.2% in the boards. I was full of confidence ,looking down upon all the lower folk who couldn’t do as well as me .
Ofcourse in today’s Competitive world perhaps even 99.99% is not enough for coaxing ,nagging parents,nevertheless I felt I’d achieved somthing.So now what? I was impatient for college. The Bollywood movies had painted a preety rosy picture of ‘Hanging out’, ‘bunking’ ,a wonderful perfect life complete with my knight in shining armour ..No more slogging away all night over bald revolutionaries (I meant the history textbook ;)..no more studies..I know you gals and guys must be laughing your gut out at my naiveness.For what followed…
Some one of my friends had started going to some sort of wierd classes that charged 45k for two years coaching..sheesh..which idiot would pay so much! Why I’d never really needed any most of my life. Now what was that ‘it-chy’ ? Sorry ..’it-gee’? Ohhh! Ok IIT -JEE ! Supposedly some elusive ,inaccessible accomplishment meant only for an elite few superhumanly intelligent students.
Bahhhh ! A piece of cake …I’ve got 94.2 havn’t I ?!
I decided to attend the orientation just to show the lowly being how its done ..But what I was in for that day ,I’d have never imagined..it was almost like an awakening.
With every word THE God of all things Brainy- Mr.Lalit Kumar pronounced I felt like sinking further more into the ground!It was a different experience..nothing like the bookish ‘mugging’ work I was used to. I felt stupid. The others students fared much better. I realized I’d been a frog in a pond all along..
