Iit India Acceptance Rate

In a front-page article on Friday reported from New Delhi, Nida Najar writes of selectivity rates at Indian universities that have driven some students to find refuge at American colleges, whose admissions rates may look welcoming by comparison.

Ms. Najar describes “a surging number of Indian students attending American colleges and universities, as competition in India has grown formidable, even for the best students.” The problem, in part, is one of a numbers, “with about half of India’s 1.2 billion people under the age of 25, and with the ranks of the middle class swelling.”

For those Indian students willing and able to pursue a higher education in the United States, recent trends on American campuses may prove fortuitous. As the article explains:

While it might not make the CBS news, Tokyo University, or Todai, an abbreviated form of Tokyo Daigaku is the place Japanese moms start thinking of to send their children for undergraduate studies before they are even born. There are 8 national universities like the Tokyo university, Todai being the most coveted one, and a few prestigious private schools like the Keio and Waseda, and these are the schools where almost every graduating school senior hopes to get into. Among technical schools Tokyo Institute of Technology (part of those 8 national universities) leads the pack. Each year news of a few students committing suicide on failing to secure admission into one of these schools is not uncommon.

There is a difference though. While graduates of universities like Tokyo are quietly working hard to bring their countries up to top and compete with the West, India with its population of a billion or so, through its IIT and other engineering college graduates, seems destined to become a country where the developed world can chooose its low-cost subcontractors to do the jobs they dont want to do or have a shortage of workers.

Having results of a single entrance examination determine whether one would be accepted or not is a common feature among the educational institutions in East Asian countries. I worked in Japan for six years and therefore being somewhat familiar with them will compare Japanese figures with that of IITs. All figures ae based on certain assumptions.

Admission to IITs is extremely difficult. Only the top 2 percent of the applicants are admitted and to get into a decent department, about half a percent is a reasonable corresponding figure. Here I will explore whether IITs are the hardest school to get into and later I will check if high selectivity results in higher quality. “Hard” facts will be supplied when they become available.

Japanese seniors in schools perform near the top in international tests in sciences and mathematics. (Seniors from Korea, Hong Kong and Singapore perform equally well.) Indians are not included in most comparison studies but there seems to be some evidence that the average Indian students would have performed near the average, probably somewhat below it. Moreover, after graduation many Japanese students take time off to study for the entrance exam and their dedication has to be seen to be believed. It leads me to believe that their potential applicant pool of of higher quality.

IIT Acceptance Rate For Undergraduate Courses

For the year 2020, around 8 lakh candidates registered for JEE Mains and about 6.35 lakh appeared for the exam. JEE Mains is conducted by the National Testing Agency across India but only the top 2. 50 lakh candidates are selected for JEE Advanced. This means that the IIT acceptance rate for undergraduate courses is 0.5%. Now, there are multiple factors behind a low acceptance rate in IITs: the syllabus structure is complex and demanding, the exam is highly competitive, attempts are limited and not to mention, the millions of people hankering for limited seats. The subsidised high-quality education, excellent placement records and the high calibre of research offered at IITs contribute to this low acceptance rate.
