Programme of Action (PoA), 1992 under the National Policy on Education (NPE), 1986 envisaged conduct of a common entrance examination on all India basis for admission to professional and technical programmes in the country. For admission to Engineering and Architecture or Planning programmes, Government of India vide Resolution dated 18th October 2001 has laid down a Three-Exam Scheme (JEE and AIEEE at the National Level and the State Level Engineering Entrance Examinations (SLEEE) for State Level Institutions with an option to join AIEEE).

The Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India took a policy decision in 2002 to conduct an All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) annually, doing away with many of the large number of entrance examinations that were being conducted till then by various institutes in the country for admission to undergraduate degree programmes in the disciplines of Engineering / Technology, Pharmacy and Architecture. This initiative has been widely accepted and appreciated.

A Central Counselling Board (CCB) constituted by the Govt. of India coordinates admissions to UG degree programmes in the disciplines mentioned above in respect of select institutions. This year's CCB has been constituted with Director, National Institute of Technology Karnataka, Surathkal, Mangalore as its Chairman.

No of Seats:  Approximately, over 23,500 seats are offered through AIEEE exam.

AIEEE Eligibility Criteria:

Candidates are, however, required to appear in the papers as per Scheme of Examination for AIEEE specified in para 2.4 of this Bulletin.

The minimum academic qualification for appearing in AIEEE 2011 is that the candidate must have passed in final examination of 10+2 (Class XII) or its equivalent referred to as the qualifying examination (see Appendix IX) with 50% marks for general category candidates and 40% marks for SC/ST/OBC/PH category candidates. Those appearing in 10+2 (Class XII) final or equivalent examination may also appear in AIEEE 2011 provisionally.Candidates appearing in 10+2 (Class XII) in 2012 or passed in 2008 or before are not eligible to appear in AIEEE 2011.


Subject combinations required in the qualifying examination for admission to B.E./B.Tech. and B. Arch./B. Planning Courses shall be as under:

CourseCompulsoryAnyone of the Optional Subjects
B.E / B.TECH* Physics & Mathematics Chemistry Bio-technology, Computer Science, Biology
B.ARCH / B. PLANNING** Mathematics with 50% marks in aggregate at 10+2 level  
  • This is as per decision of the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).
  • Provisionally as per the orders of the Hon’ble High Court of Delhi and directive received from the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India.

The number of attempts which a candidate can avail at All India Engineering/Architecture Entrance Examination shall be limited to 03 (three) uniformly for all the candidates in consecutive years. The candidates passed +2 exam in 2009, 2010 or appearing in +2 in 2011 are only eligible to appear in AIEEE-2011. Candidates passed +2 in 2008 or before or appearing in 2012 are not eligible to appear in AIEEE-2011.



  1. The +2 level examination in the 10+2 pattern of examination of any recognized Central/State Board of Secondary Examination, such as Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi, and Council for Indian School Certificate Examination, New Delhi.
  2. Intermediate or two-year Pre-University Examination conducted by a recognized Board/University.
  3. Final Examination of the two-year course of the Joint Services Wing of the National Defence Academy.
  4. Any Public School/Board/University Examination in India or in foreign countries recognized by the Association of Indian Universities as equivalent to 10+2 system.
  5. H.S.C. Vocational Examination.
  6. A pass grade in the Senior Secondary School Examination conducted by the National Open School with a minimum of five subjects.
  7. 3 or 4-year diploma recognized by AICTE or a State Board of Technical Education.

AIEEE Examination Pattern:

Scheme of Examination

Entrance examination would consist of two papers i.e. 1st paper consisting of three parts of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics of equal weightage with objective type questions for BE/B.Tech courses and 2nd paper – consisting of Mathematics,Aptitude Test and Drawing for B. Architecture and B. Planning. The Aptitude Test is designed to evaluate candidate’s perception, imagination, observation, creativity and architectural awareness.

Scoring and Negative Marking

There will be objective type questions with four options having single correct answer. For each incorrect response one fourth (1/4) of the total marks allotted to the question would be deducted. No deduction from the total score will, however, be made if no response is indicated for an item in the answer sheet. The candidates are advised not to attempt such item in the answer sheet if they are not sure of the correct response. More than one answer indicated against a question will be deemed as incorrect response and will be negatively marked. All objective type questions are required to be answered on specially designed machine gradable answer sheets. Answers are to be marked using ball point pen (black/blue) only. For the purpose of evaluation, Test Booklet Code as printed in the Answer Sheet on Side-2 will be accepted as final.

Subject combination for each paper & type of questions in each paper are given in the table below :

 SubjectsType of Questions
Paper 1 Physics,Chemistry & Mathematics Objective type questions with equal weightage to Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics.
Paper 2 Mathematics-Part I,Aptitude Test-Part II & Drawing test-Part III Objective type Question, Objective Type Question,Questions to test drawing aptitude


Requirement of papers for different courses is given in the table below:


B.E/B.TECH Paper - 1

Tips for preparing AIEEE:

Now as far as time management is concerned, you need to schedule definite timings foe each particular subject.

Self study matters a lot, self study means apart from all other studies, the total time that you devote for the study of yourself

It would better for you if you follow the following schedule.

Physics: 2 hrs a day self study apart from tuitions and school time.

Chemistry: 2 hrs a day apart from tuition and school timings.

Math’s: 3 hrs a day apart from tuitions and school.

this schedule is only for yourself study.

Now in tuitions whatever you do daily, go with the quick revision at that very moment after the completion of the topic, in all subjects.

Note: that this rhythm should not break anyhow.

Focus on analytical topics rather than theoretical topics.
