Nearly 1.19 lakh students including  around 23,000 girls had appeared for the exam on May 25.

Like the  previous years, the number of girls taking the IIT exam is low.

In a bid to bring more transparency and acting on a directive of the Delhi high court,  the IITs had  for the first time, invited queries from candidates and stakeholders regarding answer keys before evaluating the Optical Response Sheets (ORS). Nearly 1700 queries were received.

The online filling of choices for various courses will begin from June 20. The first round of seat allocation will be announced on July 1. The second and third round of seat allocations will be declared  on July 7 and July 12.

This year the number of seats is  9,784 as against 9,867 last year. Some courses have been dropped while at the same time new courses have  been added  in some IITs.
