Dear Siddhant,

(ISEET) Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test


Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test (ISEET): The Common Engineering Entrance Examination:

The Human Resource Development Ministry, Government of India is all set to go ahead with its plan to conduct a common engineering entrance examination from 2013, but the first nation-wide test may only cover technical institutions funded by the Centre.

IIT-JEE and AIEEE — for long the gateways to India’s top engineering colleges including the IITs and  NITs— is all set to be replaced by a brand new test to be called as ISEET -  Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test. As reported by The Indian Express on January 31, the new exam modeled on lines of the international test - ‘SAT’ comes into force starting 2013. The introduction of this test is expected to help do away with multiple entrance examinations and thereby reduce the stress levels of students.

ISEET Exam Date (Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test): 

The ISEET is going to be effective for admissions into the IITs and NITs for Admission year 2013 and therefore is expected to be conducted in either March or April 2013.

ISEET Test Pattern (Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test):

ISEET will have two papers on the same day:


  • Duration of ISEET Main – 3 hours
  • Paper-Test Pattern of ISEET Main – Areas Tested at ISEET:
  • Reading Comprehension & Critical Thinking and Logical Reasoning
  • Weightage to ISEET Main: 30% minimum

ISEET Advance:

  • Duration of ISEET Advance3 hours.
  • Paper-Test Pattern of ISEET Main – Areas Tested at ISEET:
  • Problem Solving Ability in Basic Science Subjects
  • Weightage for ISEET Advance: 30% minimum
  • The two tests ISEET Main and ISEET Advance together will indicate a candidate’s scholastic level and aptitude for science and engineering.


The Selection Process from ISEET (Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test):

A student’s performance in the Class 12 Board exam will be considered, with the weightage not less than 40 per cent of the total score. The combined weight for ISEET Main and ISEET Advance will not be more than 60 per cent; however, the weightage given to Board scores can go up to 100 per cent.

Each state government or institute will be able to decide the specific weightage it gives to Board, ISEET Main and ISEET Advance exam/test scores. A committee headed by Dr T Ramasami, secretary in the Department of Science & Technology, has demonstrated with the help of the Indian Statistical Institute that school scores across various Boards can be normalized through a statistical process.

HRD Ministry’s Proposal on ISEET:

HRD Ministrys proposed move to conduct the Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test (ISEET) from 2013, as a successor to the Indian Institute of Technology-Joint Entrance Exam (IIT-JEE) and All India Engineering Entrance Exam (AIEEE) has stirred up apprehensions amongst the experts and certain State Governments. However, a final decision is likely to be taken in the forthcoming conference of State Education Ministers which is likely to take place on February 22, 2012.

ISEET Test Centers – ISEET Exam Centers: 128 cities in India (current list as per IIT-JEE centers AIEEE had 86 cities where the test was conducted):

Number of Students Expected to Take the ISEET:

Currently published figures for the students taking IIT-JEE are approximately 4.25 lac and those taking AIEEE are in the range of about 12 lacs. Assuming that there is a complete overlap between the students who take IIT-JEE as well as AIEEE – the expected minimum number of ISEET takers will be 12 lacs for the year 2013. The number of takers of ISEET can of course increase given that the board examinations now constitute 40% of the weightage for selection into the ISEET affiliated technical institutions and colleges. Additionally the number of students taking the ISEET will rise once again when the State Level Engineering Tests are replaced with ISEET.


ISEET Conducting Body:  Who will conduct, Manage and Set the ISEET test paper?

The ISEET is expected to be managed and conducted by the CBSE board of examinations at a central level. It is also proposed by the government that the setting of the ISEET papers both ISEET main and ISEET advance be handed over to IITs.


Colleges & Institutions accepting ISEET Scores:

All national level institutions – IITs, NITs, IISER and IIITs to begin with are slated to accept the ISEET scores for admissions along with the School Board Examination Marks.
