The 2009’s AIEEE exam is concluded and all students are eagerly awaiting the results. One thing that is to be cleared here is that the standard of the paper was between moderate to tough. If you ask a student who is also preparing for JEE, he would say the paper was OK/Moderate but a student who exclusively prepared for AIEEE would say it to be a bit tough. This means that the analytical part of the subject was drilled this time around. But one has to agree that the difficulty level in all three subjects were nearly similar. If we take physics for example, 55-60 % of the questions were on the easy to moderate side, 30 % questions were moderately tough and remaining 10-15 % questions were tough. But a student who is preparing for JEE exam would put those 10-15 % tough questions also under moderately difficult level. So there goes the difference. Scoring in AIEEE, in fact in any competitive exam would seriously depend on the type of questions we attempt. The more easy questions we attempt, more marks we get. But having said that, if we got any of those six 8 marks questions in a subject we would easily get 8 marks.
(In AIEEE 2009 each subject had six 8 marks questions and 24 four mark questions and the rest were 3 mark questions)
So, at the end of the day, it all depends on the talent of the person taking the test.
So keeping this level of difficulty in mind the probable ranks for different marks could be as follows:
Marks Probable rank
>400 10 or below
>370 30 or below
>350 100 or below
>320 500 or below
>300 1000 or below
>275 3000 or below
>250 6000 or below
>200 10000 or below
And for those whose estimated marks are lower than 200, would get a rank above 10000. Remember that the cluster of ranks increases as the marks decrease from 200. Which means the difference in ranks for a person with marks of 200 and a person with marks of 195 would be in thousands.
So using this estimated rank you can check which college you would probably get.
