What are your chances of cracking the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) 2012, the Application form for which you can fill online from today and offline from November 11, 2011?
In JEE 2011, 13,196 qualified for admission to JEE of the 4.6 lakh (4,60,000)candidates who had applied.
Thus out of all those who wrote the examination, 2.87 Percent cracked the JEE 2011. In simple words out of every 10,000 writing the JEE 2011 exam, 287 went to the IITs.
So what are your chances?
If seriousness, hard work, perseverance and intelligence are key to be successful in JEE, then use this simple rule of thumb – Only 20 percent of students who take any competitive exam, prepare for it. Preparation here implies Preparation in Serious terms.
So if we assume that, the same number of candidates go for JEE 2012 (although that will in all probability increase), then only 92000 will be SERIOUSLY preparing for JEE 2012. If you are serious enough, then in order to get into 13,196 seats, you should be in top 14 percent of candidates or 1 in 7 candidates.
This doesn’t look much of a challenge! Right?
But these six other competitors are tough competitors – as they are razer sharp.
But still you can make your way among the chosen ones. As some among these razer sharp competitors LACK, other important ingredients of success — Hardwork, Smart Hardwork and Perseverance.
So if you rule out those who lack the above three. Then you will be having a success ratio in JEE 2012, which looks like – 1 in 4 .
