Difference between AIEEE and IIT

AIEEE stands for All India Engineering Entrance Examination and IIT stands Indian Institute of Technology. IIT is a group of an educational establishment, whereas, AIEEE is a national level examination that is a gateway to various engineering institutes in India. IIT is a host of independent engineering and technology-centred establishments in India. It has been set up by the Parliament of India and holds the coveted title of Institutes of National Importance.

The AIEEE is an entrance exam administered by the Central Board of Secondary Education. One of the key differences that can be observed between AIEEE and IIT is in process of the examination being conducted. AIEEE is relevant to admission in several architectures and engineering institutes all over the country, inclusive of the NITs (National Institute of Technology) that are located in various states. Whereas, an abstracted entrance examination called IIT-JEE, which is also known as Joint Entrance Examination, is conducted for finding candidates for  IIT seats.

After carefully weighing the importance of both the examinations, the IIT-JEE is contemplated to be the most esteemed & sought after the entrance exam. IIT-JEE is one of the toughest exams on the globe. While IIT-JEE lays emphasis on the framework of concepts and proper application of the concepts, the AIEEE lays more emphasis on speed, demand and accuracy. The IIT-JEE will assess a candidate’s grasp on the fundamentals. On comparing the questions asked in IIT-JEE and AIEEE, the examination of IIT-JEE is extremely complex.

While the IIT-JEE exams are for attaining entry into undergraduate admissions, the postgraduate admissions are conducted on the basis of JMET, GATE, CEED and JAM. For cracking AIEEE, a B.Arch aspirant has to clear the Mathematics and aptitude test, whereas a candidate aspiring for attaining admission into  B.Tech courses should clear the Physics, Mathematics and chemistry tests.

The exam duration of AIEEE is three-hours, whereas the duration of IIT-JEE  is six hours. Also, the number of questions asked in AIEEE lie in the range of 105 to 115, while that of the IIT-JEE could include 120 to 150 questions, as per the statement of Ajay Antony who holds the post of course director of IIT-JEE at the prestigious Triumphant Institute of Management Education Pvt. Ltd. (T.I.M.E). In order to attain a decent percentage and rank, of course, students must undertake rigorous preparation.

These examinations are conducted in two modes namely offline and online. The offline mode is the pen and paper mode, whereas, the online version may comprise of more than lakh students. These exams are branched into two sections, each of which constitutes of questions pertains to subjects like physics, chemistry and mathematics. All the questions are in the form of Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ) and students can choose for question paper in English, as well as  Hindi language.

The key components of these topics are electromagnetism, mechanics and optics in physics, organic and inorganic in chemistry and algebra, calculus and analytical geometry in mathematics. AIEEE  has attained the status of the most vital exam after IIT-JEE, as it provides a gateway into admission for a huge number of colleges.


In many ways, AIEEE is extremely similar to the CBSE board exams. Comprehending the concepts and solving questions with speed and accuracy is highly important to attain success in both. In the case of AIEEE, if you can solve even half of the paper with accuracy then you can surely attain a good score.


It acts as a base for both boards and competitive exams. There are inconsequential questions that can be constructed from between the lines that you may ignore while giving speed reading. Lay special importance on exceptions by heart and make informative notes. Before entering the exam hall, revise the notes as they comprise of questions that have the probability of coming in the examination.


It is extremely important to practice question papers of previous years by setting a time limit as they are applicable to your boards as well as entrance tests. This helps you in examining the template of the papers. Setting the time limit for completing the paper will equip you with speed and hence, as a result, you will attain accuracy automatically after a period of time. It is highly necessary to lay equal emphasis on theory, as well as the numerical aspect of the part to attain success. Focusing on one aspect restrains the scoring capacities and it also gives an advantage your competitor for getting ahead of you.


Various IIT-JEE (Indian Institute of Technology - Joint Entrance Examination) toppers fail to do well in the AIEEE exam each year. This is due to the fact that IIT-JEE requires the ability to build concepts and accurate application of the concept along with possessing an in-depth knowledge of a subject that JEE requires, whereas AIEEE demands speed and accuracy in a definitive time period. JEE needs you to have a strong foundation of concepts to be able to solve difficult questions that may be presented in a twisted manner so that it appears more complex than it actually is. Each and every concept has to be comprehended, as they form the basis on which questions are being constructed.
