IIT-JEE has always been considered as one of the most toughest engineering entrance exams but now the scenario has changed. Now BITSAT has become one of the most competitive national level engineering entrance exams in India. An average of about 68 candidates will compete for a seat in BITSAT this year. BITSAT is an online test for gaining admission to degree courses offered by Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani and will kick off today, May 10, 2012. In contrast to BITSAT, only 54 candidates took IIT-JEE 2012 for a seat on April 8, 2012.

About 1.36 lakh applicants are expected to appear in BITSAT 2012 against a total of 2000 seats at Hyderabad, Goa and Pilani campuses. The entrance exam will be held at 32 centers across India between May 10 and June 9, 2012. In comparison, 5.2 lakh students appeared in IIT-JEE 2012 held on April 8, 2012 for 9600 seats in 15 IITs (Indian Institute of Technology), Indian school of Mines, Dhanbad and IT-BHU (Institute of Technology at Banaras Hindu University).

The VITEE held on April 21 for enrollment to engineering courses offered by the deemed university, Vellore Institute of Technology followed IIT with an average of 48 candidates competing for 1 seat. About 1.5 lakh candidates took VITEE 2012 for a total of 3100 seats.

The AIEEE (All India Engineering Entrance Exam) stood at number three with a total of 11 lakh participants this year for admission to 31 NITs (National Institutes of Technology) having 35000 seats. About 50 other government and private engineering institutes having maximum of seats reserved for home state students and hold their own state level entrance test also use AIEEE scores. On an average 31 students fight for each seat with AIEEE score.

Few other private and deemed universities such as SRM and Manipal with 27 and 22 applicants per seat respectively follow AIEEE.

Less number of seats gives BITS a competitive edge:

As per the education experts, the availability of large number of seats at IITs has lowered its student-to-seat ratio, putting BITS ahead of it. There are a total of 9600 seats at IITs while BITS with 2000 seats has gained more popularity in the past 2-3 years and has become more competitive. In last 5 years, number of BITSAT applicants has risen significantly from about 88,000 in 2007 to 1.23 lakh in 2011 and 1.36 lakh this year. Another reason for the popularity of BITSAT is that it follows NCERT school syllabus.
