AICTE to Restore Engineering Eligibility Percentage to 45%

Reportedly from sources, All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has nodded for lowering down the minimum +2 / II PUC percentage by 5%. Which means the eligibility criteria for engineering admissions will now be restored back to 45% for General and 40% for reserved categories. Earlier this year AICTE has hiked the eligibility norms to 50% for General & 45% for reserved classes keeping in view of quality. The decision will favor many Engineering Colleges & Students across the Country, as many as 15,000 engineering seats were left out in Karnataka Engineering Colleges, 20,000 seats were unfilled in Maharastra last year.

The decision might just help students to secure admission in Engineering Colleges, however it may have worse effect on the quality of Engineers. The unemployment rate will significantly go up with thousands of Engineering Graduates graduated every year, colleges find it difficult to offer campus placements.

Top MNC’s like Infosys, TCS keeps a standard benchmark of 60% through out the academics to sit in campus placements. This also includes percentage in +2 / II PUC level, students who just made it to the Engineering Colleges with lower cutoff marks will have to face tough battle later on.

What is your opinion ? Should AICTE emphasize on quality rather than quantity ?

  1. Sir i got 55.6%overall and 62% in pcm . Can i get admission in engineering college. Please sir help me

  2. sir think that all of them should get a chance to prove them in college life, so the % must be done more less so that the student get admissions. or else day by day the question paper level is being high and more so the students will get good marks in school life?????

  3. Plzzz any one tell me …
    this year will change
    eligibilty criteria… if there
    iss no finally i have to i
    quite..bcozz of 2 marks i
    em nt getting addmission
    in engineering… i em really
    unlucky guy in this world…

  4. I got 48% in mpc inter nd i qualified for eamcet , i got 170253 rank nd 2day was my verification so i went there ,they verified my certificates then they called my name nd told im not eligible fr engineering not even through management quota saying that i got 44.33% after removing language.They said i lost eligibility buy 0.2% nd they cant do anything nd they told me to do someother degree.but i want engineering so what should i do.

  5. hi,
    every year seats of engineering college are going empty year by year.
    Then also 19 new colleges are open that means more seats will go empty.
    this year Government should release criteria for engineering admission and allow any student to take admission.
    this will clear that how many seats left in the end to decide whether we need new colleges or not.
    2013 – 52,754 seats empty
    2014 – 64,000 – 75000 seats empty

    then also new 19 colleges of engineering.

    Think on my post

  6. Sir If u nt thought about us its ohk…u r nt giving a chance chalega…bt for 1 marks u r spoiling our life..ty sir

  7. is there any chances that
    maharashtra government

    Percentage to 45 just like
    last year.sir i have 49% in pc and cs sir please change the crateria

  8. sir please provide a second GR for first year engineering their are so many seats are vacant so sir please request you to think about a second GR and provide a second GR

  10. aicte thinks that just getting few marks less means we are no good for engineering…so i shall opt diploma for now and become a great engineer and will not offer any kind of service to india in anyway as they don’t think we are eligible for engineering, i think they are not eligible for our sevices..! :_(

  11. Sir , m ashwini. N I have scored 56% in 12th due to some domestic problem… N i have 147 in phy, maths & computer science..

    And best luck

  16. Sir ,is their any date you can tell
    me GR for 45% for open will
    permitted..I think from 6-7 years
    it is applied so government
    should apply for this year also…
    please gov.should apply as soon
    as possible

  17. To whom ever it may concern
    This has reference to eligibility criteria for Eng admission. To restore from 50% to 45% for open & from 45% to 40%.. I say AICTE should officially declared at the earliest instead off putting the candidate in a fuss.

    I do not understand 5% increase in eligibility will give produce Quality Engineers.There are thousand of students who scored less in 12h but scored highest % in engineering. and working in reputed firm in India & Abroad. AND also thousand of Student who topped in 12th but failed miserably in first year of Engineering later on discontinued Eng. On this what AICTE has to say. Please comment.

    Let me ask ? If the education authority is concerned for quality education then why the hell on earth from Standard First to Standard Eight the School guys just promote the student. Why the schools are not following for quality. Later in standard Ninth & Tenth the student suffer. Who is Responsible for the sufferer Student, Is the Parent or The School or The Education Norms. Has any body ever thought of it. Does any body has Answer on the above topic????????

    The Education Authority itself does not understand what rules they implement. for Eg, This year they said equal weight for 12th mark and Jee mark. Later on declaring 0 mark in Jee exam no problem , he or she is eligible for eng admission if he or she score 50% and 45% respectively for open and caste. Then why the hell the student were forced to conduct Jee exam for Eng. Who will answer for this.

    Such many many question are there where the Education authority will not be able to answer.

    Allow the student and let the student work hard for their future.
    WHO we are to stop by putting condition just by 5%.

    1. i have 48.2% including voational subject. will the criteria surely go down? even the counselling rounds are over i guess so will they decrease it now?

    1. i got 49.33% i.e.148 in pcm and just missing engineering by 2 mark. I asked in few colleges they are like the govt. may reduce the criteria to 45% so i wish if any of you can find it out from any college or something ? and what else can i do now? please reply

      1. i got 49.33% i.e.148 in pcm and just missing engineering by 2 mark.

        1. some people say it may happen and some say it may not…me and my friends got calls from different institutes requesting to take admission at their colleges saying that goverment has lowerd the cutoff marks and the GR would be officialy declaired in 2-3 days…but i dont know if that’s true

  31. Sir, please lower the criteria to 45% for open. I have 148 in PCM. I will lose admission just for 2 marks. I want to do engineering only. Every year seats are remained in colleges so please lower it to 45% as last year. It really helps students.

  32. please sir….lower the PCM score criteria for the open category. ……I have just 1% less in pcm…I m passionate about engineering, I were suffered by fever hence I score less in exam…..please sir…thank you…

  36. is there any chances that maharashtra government would restore Engineering Eligibility
    Percentage to 45 just like last year

    1. No dude… We don’t have any chance now… We are the most unlucky people on earth right now… An ARC official told me that there are less chances of lowering of cutoff now…so I’m opting for polytechnic now…I suggest you to move on too… Don’t have any false hopes…

  54. Dear sir ,
    I am sandeep from ullal i need some help from you one ting i want to clear to you sir last year i wort CET and i got some rank in that nearly 66000 that is in last year but, some financial problem i unable to get engineering seat in previous year but i noticed that about 10% seats were unfilled and some students told they given all vacant in the low fees that means nearly government rate of fees. This is my last year story. Now the matter is coming in this year the government first increased the 5% marks in eligibility that is 50% for GM & 45% for others but recently the government changed the new rule and agen decreased the minimum mark as same as last year. Now my question is…,
    can i take management seat in this year?
    What will be the fees for me in this year means near or little higher then government fees or higher fees like 1,25,000rs.
    My PCM ( C = computer science ) percentage is 44.66 can i take engineering seat in this year o what ?
    I want to make some good ideas in my life so pleas help me sir (marks at maths 46, physics 37, chemistry 34, computer science 48 ) i will study good and make some new inventions ie running the vehicle by using sea water as a fuel and much more but i having good ideas but …

    1. Hi Sandeep, yes you can take admission through management quota. Management quota fee will change from college to college it will be either Rs 100,000 or Rs 125,000, few colleges many go for less if there are many vacant seats. All the best to you 🙂

  55. is this criteria auso aplicable for mba students?and i scored 94.98% in mat and i am having 48.96% in graducation am i eligble for aicte approved colleges?

    1. Hi Vaibhav, So far the criteria mentioned above is applicable for engineering admissions for MBA admissions the eligibility is 50%. However as your MAT score is high you may have preference, so try hard. May I know where are you planning to study MBA?

  56. i reallly would be the happiest person on this earth if this happens
    atleast i will get a chance to proove it to myself that yes i can do it……..
    otherwise my life after my result has become horrible
    please please make this happen
    plzzzzzzzzz

  57. i have got just 1 mark less in pcm……i mean if i wud have got 150 marks then i wud have been eligible…….but the case is i got 149 mark….even i got a gud rank in upsee 2011 (my rank is 6437)…….. but the administrators didi’nt register me……..and if this happens then i wud be the happiest person in the world………so i pray…..for this thing to happen…….

  58. IN MAHARASHTRA,DTE IS ASKING FOR 50% IN PCM AND ZERO / 1 MARK SCORE IN MH-CET IS ELIGIBLE FOR SEEKING ADMISSION ENGG. COLLEGE. WHY DTE IS HAVING DOUBLE STANDARD AS ASKING 50% IN PCM AND ZERO MARK IN CET.BETTER DO IT 45% IN PCM AND MINIMUM 45 MARKS IN CET FOR ALL, IRRESPECTIVE ANY CATAGORY.

  59. what the hell is this all about……..??? people who cannot even get 50% are not worth getting into engineering …………….u guys just relax all ur life and then expect the goverment to pamper u ……………accept the fact that u guys are not good enough!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Hey if you have got enough marks for getting a seat in engineering then why are you getting scared of your admissions bloody fool.

  60. Dear Sir ,
    Its My immence pleasear to tell u that its better to reduce the cut off criteria i.e. 135 marks out of 300 because it would be the best criteria for us it will make students eligible for engineering & our dreams will come true so plese make this criteria available for us as soon as possible
    Thanking urs
    Faithfully

  61. My Physics marks = 37 Maths = 38 and Electronics 128 out of 200 am I eligible for engineering admission in Maharashtra?

  62. By restoring to its original eligibility of 45% AICTE has helped many students to go for engineering. Its a good thing, I LOVE U INDIAN GOVERMENT

  63. I appreciate you for having such revolutionary thought.I hope people sitting at the top level of this nation making laws and governing the society of the “INDIA” should acknowledge this situation and at least once peep inside them. One more point are they really this much qualified to decide the zest of a individual.

  64. By restoring to its original eligibility of 45% AICTE has helped many students to go for engineering. Its a good thing

  65. I just laugh at this assumption on the marks obtained in those three hours.This social stigma which is not prevailing in any other country is the major flaw in our society.Just to go & write some codes in Infy & other BPO’s guys are better off doing some better works.US has cleverly manipulated this flaw & send their non core jobs to India.Even if a guy is a rank holder throughout his life in India he is no match to the creative brain of an ordinary student of US & Europe.Let us accept this.

    Every person has got ups & downs in his life.Let companies have their interviews & not base their selection on mere % marks the candidates get.Let them investigate how many of their senior management people have got higher marks.That will be good revelation.
