Success Road of IIT Entrance Examination

 By: MKT Mukesh
Failures, they say, are the stepping stones to success. But when defeat stares right in your face, being realistic about the situation and adopting a sensible attitude is perhaps the last thing that engages the mind. Starting from family and peers to societal pressures, the ignominy of a defeat is made to weigh heavily on the cerebral cortex of a candidate, so much so that taking the extreme step often appears to be the only alternative.

Predictably, the burden of expectation will be much higher when it comes to breaking into the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs). With over four lakh candidates sparring for the limited 9,000- odd seats, the competition could not get any tougher than this.

So what are some of the options available for candidates who have failed to clear the IIT examination? The world does not end just because you have flunked the IIT entrance examination. Joining any degree or graduate programme can equip you with the skills that can help you get a good career and become successful in life..

Students who do not clear the IIT can opt for various reputed institutes such as the National Institute of Technology, Indian Institute of Information Technology, BITS Pilani and various engineering colleges under Delhi University.

There is no harm in taking one more chance, if a candidate is focused and intent on getting into the IIT. But then there are also other ways of getting into the IIT's at a later stage in your academic life such as enrolling for an M. Sc or a Ph. D programme.

Preparing for IIT-JEE requires a higher level of focus and determination than other entrance examinations. The fact that you have aspired and prepared for IIT deserves a pat on your back. It shows that you have set your sights high. The entrance exam is not a reflection of your ability. It is all about how you fare on that particular day.

One has to be realistic about ones abilities. Most of the time students scoring just 50 per cent aim for the IIT. Such candidates should take a serious look at what they are capable of.

Parents are ignorant. They think that by getting an admission for an engineering programme their children will get a highly paid job. This is a fallacy. There are engineering graduates who do not get even Rs 10,000 per month. Parents force their children to pursue science, disregarding his/ her interest or liking for the subject. Every year I get at least two or three students who say this is not what I want.

So what are some of the options available for candidates who have failed to clear the IIT examination? The world does not end just because you have flunked the IIT entrance examination. Joining any degree or graduate programme can equip you with the skills that can help you get a good career and become successful in life.
