The top score of this year’s All India Engineering/Architecture Entrance Exam (AIEEE) is 346 out of 360, one mark more than last year’s top score. The AIEEE results were announced on Saturday night.
No student from Maharashtra made it to the top 10 list. The All India Rank (AIR) 1 was secured by Sanjeet Patri from Delhi who scored 346 out of 360. Among girls, Mansee Sood topped with AIR 6 with a score of 336 out of 360. The IIT JEE all India topper secured the ninth rank in AIEEE.
The AIEEE determines entry to more than 26,000 seats at colleges across the country. “The performance is around the same as last year,” said Vineet Joshi, chairperson of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), which conducts the exam. For the first time, the board made the optical response sheets available online for verification. Joshi said they had received around 86 requests for verification so far.
Of around 11 lakh candidates who wrote the exam, 4.1 lakh crossed the cut-off mark of 48, and are eligible for the next phase of online counselling.
