This time too Andhra boys have snatched away the top ranks, by pocketing three of the top 10 all india ranks. However, Mumbai boy Shubham Lalwani have secured top rank in All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE), 2011. Seventeen-year-old Lalwani have secured a score of 345. His scores in AIEEE are perfect scores. He secured 120 in Maths, 120in Chemistry, but scored only 105 in Physics. He wants to pursue engineering from IIT-B in Powai.
Andhra boy J Varun has bagged 5th position in AIEEE. He secured 9th rank in IIT-JEE 2011 results. West Godavari boy Immadi Prudhvi Tej who was IIT -JEE topper this year have managed to secure 7th position. He got 2nd rank in AIEEE's B Arch test. The 8th rank was claimed by Andhra Pradesh's T Bhargava Reddy who also secured 8th position in IIT-JEE results.
Kshitiz Singh, claimed 3rd rank All India Rank (AIR) in AIEEE results.He is not even thinking of taking admission in any of the NITs. He stood 48th in IIT-JEE entrance and is eyeing IIT campuses in Delhi and Kanpur. Shubham Mehta of Kota stood 16th in AIEEE but is not disappointed at all because he managed to claim AIR -2 in IIT-JEE results. He is all set to study in IIT-Mumbai. He appeared in AIEEE only to test his knowledge.
The outcome of the AIEEE results sends out a message that none of the IIT toppers would ever go for colleges accepting AIEEE scores. This has been the norm for a very long time. Only those students who could not manage good ranking in IIT-JEE, but had scored decently in AIEEE would aim at IIITs or NITs.
