I wanted to know whether to qualify for the IIT-JEE you need 60% in only physics, chemistry and maths OR in all the subjects?
IIT JEE will remain based on PCM all the time. These are the subjects of research & the examiners at IIT board seek great minds who could do well with it
I don't know about your first point, but i think your are pretty much correct.Did you ever notice that anyone who did great research, or got the Nobel prize or any other science prize from India has NEVER scored well in PCM or even his/her degree?
Even the recent nobel prize winner could not clear the JEE........The entrance exams, unfortunately are way too flawed, giving clear preference to numerical ability and "test case scenarios" instead of analytical reasoning and conceptual clarity (i.e. out-of-the-box thinking)......which is why the JEE can never get "research" candidates in large numbers.
I don't know about your first point, but i think your are pretty much correct.
But according to second one you'r absolutely wrong. In most of the entrance tests, u will find that they give preference to numerical ability, calculations are very much in these entrance tests. These test include theory based objective questions which any student who had memorized everything can answer them easily. But IIT-JEE (or simply JEE) is something different. You will never face a problem of doing so much calculation in JEE. They adjust such values which are easy to solve. And about reasoning, JEE include many (although not most) questions on reasoning. Also for conceptual clarity, nearly each and every question in JEE is conceptual. All the questions are based on concepts.
The reason for not getting many 'research' candidates in JEE, is that most of the students who get admissions into IIT, are not related with reaserch works. They get good packages from many companies so they dont go to reaserch side.

So, by selecting all three subjects they judge nearly each and every quality of a student. I mean visualisation, concepts, memorization, practice etc. each and every thing they judge

abhijangda said:But i like your selection procedure, but once again money-time, money-time and that's it. Colleges have to prepare the result in the deadline and if they go according to this approach, they will loose money and time.

I did think a lot about it, mainly because I saw people coming out from NITs and various state universities with a B.Tech degree in comps and knowing nothing about computers other than the coding part (but hey, even coding gets you $$$ here), and at the same time I saw people with B.Sc and M.Sc degrees having a lot more knowledge and interest in the subject, but they didn't have a "B.Tech" and were thus unable to secure the same respect or jobs despite having more knowledge, experience and interest......

gopi_vbboy said:You r right ...i was good at physics...wanted to join Comp. science...but could only get electrical engg and was refused Comp. sc in reputed institute...i went against my will i thought...but good...its better cos Comp sc isnt a degree at all...i can now go any domain if i want...
gopi_vbboy said:me being electrical n elex engineer...i have been a dumb so many years sourrounded with many dumb guys studying in a reputed state engineering college...where i xpected a lot...but at lost there was lot of dissapointment for me...i didnt learn my subj properly...bus 4 sal timepass huva...guess wat i m goin to be engineer in week...knowing nothing
^^ i mean comp science is just part of physics...its was basically all physics...which was split in civil ,mech and elec...
then elec rose to so with many technologies...it had to split in instrumenation,IT,COmp sc,Elec,ECE,Etc all are part of physics
Comps science is nothing when there is no computers ...as is very limited...it was created jus for hype in engg...so i dont consider it worth being a degree....jus my opinion...
