17 June

DASA 2016 SAT2 Cutoff for 2nd Round have been declared by DASANIT. Following are my general observations this year:

1) CIWG seats have not seen much change from Round 1

2) Normal seats cut-off also has seen stiff resistance to move down. For some reasons, few Normal seat cut-off have seen upward movement. Below link has DASA 2nd Round SAT2 Cut-off Scores:

9 June

DASA 2016 SAT2 Cutoff for Round 1 have been declared by DASANIT. Following are my general observations this year:

1) CIWG seats have seen very high cut-offs. This shows that the Gulf students not only constitute more than 1/3 of overall students but also score more compared to general DASA pool.

2) DASA students have got unusually high SAT2 scores this year (that too without May score coming into play). CIWG seats were expected to finish at 2400 in top colleges, however, NITW- CSE Normal seats also going at 2400 leads me to think that >90 students got score of 2400 (last year the cut-off at NITW-CSE was 2340). Same goes for ECE/Mech/IT seats where the cut-offs are more than last year even for Normal seats.

3) Many lower ranks colleges could only get application for CIWG seats- very smart move by CIWG candidates with low SAT scores. Please check at below link that EEE seats have only got interest from CIWG candidates:

Can I get an Upgrade Seat in Round 2?

I am receiving a lot of queries asking if I can get an upgrade seat. On this I could only provide general guidance based on last years' experience (last year the cut-off really didn't drop by even 10 points in top7-8 colleges). In case someone has better idea on this, I would publish that here:

Round 1 Cut-off -> Expected SAT2 Score Drop in cutoff

>2350 -> 0-10

2300-2350 -> 0-20

2200-2290 -> 0-30

2000-2190 -> 0-40

<2000 -> 0-60

As far as Internal Sliding is concerned, no one can predict that- so my request is not to rely on that stroke of luck as one of your main option. As earlier noted, I would be deleting all queries relating to internal sliding as it is not worth deliberating/ arriving at probabilities etc. 2016-Round1-SAT2-Cutoff Read more…

Single IIT, NIT Entrance Exam from 2017 ?

Panel suggests single IIT, NIT entrance exam, aptitude test

HRD Ministry maintains there will be no change in JEE format for 2016

By: Express News Service | New Delhi | Published:November 8, 2015 2:35 am

Three years after the UPA 2 government made sweeping changes to the admission process at top engineering institutes of the country, an expert panel appointed by its successor government has recommended another set of changes, including a single entrance examination for both IITs and NITs, no weightage to school board marks, and a compulsory aptitude test.

The committee, headed by academic Ashok Mishra, has suggested that JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced) should be merged into a single entrance exam, conducted by the IITs and intended to test a candidate’s knowledge of physics, chemistry and mathematics. Currently, JEE (Main), meant for admission to the NITs, is conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), and JEE (Advanced) by the IITs.

Anubhuti Vishnoi  New Delhi, August 26, 2014 | UPDATED 23:40 IST


In a bid to take the much sought after Joint Engineering Examination (JEE) to the next level, the Indian Institutes of Technology have last week quietly begun working on a plan to take the JEE Advanced online by 2016-17.

At a meeting of the Joint Admission Board of IITs held on August 23, 2014 in New Delhi, the institutes agreed that JEE Advanced, which determines admission to all 16 IITs, should go completely online from 2016.

Near 1.5 lakh students screened after appearing for JEE Main are eligible to appear for the JEE Advanced. The JEE Main determines admission to all National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and other engineering colleges and also decodes eligibility of candidates to appear for JEE Advanced.

Is IIIT-H better than IITs in computer science?

“Is IIIT-H better than IITs in computer science?is the most debated question in discussions whether online and off-line, especially when IIIT-H is in the news for some recognition or its students winning any national/ international coding contest. The answer, however, eludes those seeking for one desperately.

Before we try to compare IIIT-Hyd with other institutes, let’s first note some of the highlights of IIIT-Hyd which is not matched by its competitors in the field:

  • Autonomous university set up as a not-for-profit Public Private Partnership (N-PPP) model
  • Experienced faculty– Most number of PhD faculty in India in a CSE institute (total of 60+ faculty with PhDs)
  • Research oriented academics:   Offers research-led curricula even for undergraduate programs. As a result, students get to do a large number of projects and acquire deep research orientation and innovative mindset. If interested in doing MS or PhD in CSE field, best place to be.
  • Very Strong Coding Culture: IIIT-Hyd students regularly shine in coding contests. The dominating portion of the most courses are coding assignments + lab tests as well as a few of them being totally based on programming & programming workshops (even for 1st year)

Only institute to have appeared four times in ACM-ICPC World Contest and securing highest ranking by any India institute. Almost every year there is a team from IIIT Hyderabad that qualifies for the ACM ICPC World Finals. Once there were two teams which qualified in a single year! IIIT Hyderabad won ACM ICPC South Asia regionals in consecutive years (Two other IIIT teams ranked 6th and 7th)

  • Highly Ranked on Programming sites: There are many high ranked students solving problems on SPOJ and TopCoder programming sites. For many years, IIIT-Hyd was ranked no. 1 globally on SPOJ programming site
  • Google Summer of Code. A total of 29 IIIT-Hyd students were selected in 2013 (second highest globally, top in India) to contribute towards open source assignments by Google.
  • DataQuest Ranks IIIT-Hyd at 1st for Placement. 100% Placement. Av. salary for CSE: Rs 9.5 LPA. Off-shore: in Excess of $120K. Every year there are some 8-10 people hired by Google and Facebook.
  • World class infrastructure
  • Tech-Hub/Incubator: Houses India’s biggest Tech start-up Incubator
  • Situated in the metro city of Hyderabad in a posh locality amongst IT biggies. Hyderabad is an emerging hub for IT start-ups and home for IT biggies (latest entrant Amazon, Facebook, TCS)  because it offers 3 times of Bangalore’s instrstructure at one third cost. Hyderabad already is home for all major IT biggies like TCS, Wipro, Tech Mahindra, Accenture, Infosys, IBM, Google, Yahoo, iGate.
  • Recommended as a premier research institution in India by the US  National Science Foundation (NSF) for US graduate students to take up research fellowships and short-term research programs.
