750 JEE Advanced qualifiers opt out in IIT Admission 2014

While thousands of engineering aspirants dreamt of getting into the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology, around 750 JEE (Advanced) qualified candidate have opted out in IIT admission 2014.

As per the latest information available, about 18,061 candidates were declared eligible to seek admission in 16 IITs and ISM Dhanbad, whereas only 17,311 had registered themselves for admission. The number may probably go up as some candidates tend to drop out even after seats have been allotted," said an official.

Around 27,151 candidates got through JEE (Advanced) 2014 with 19,416 in common merit list, 6,000 in OBC (NCL), 4,400 in SC and 1,250 in ST merit lists.

If believe in what experts says, the one who have opted out may have chosen foreign universities, BITS or some other private universities.

This year, while the five older IITs still remained as the preferred choice of the aspirant, newer IITs in Bhubaneshwar, Ropar, Indore, Mandi, Patna, Jodhpur, Hyderabad and Gandhinagar lacked behind. These newer IITs have gained less popularity compared to Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) and National Institute of Technology (NITs) because of the poor infrastructure and quality teachers,” said a professor.

“Moreover, the placement record and the salary package of the newer IITs are not so encouraging as compared to BITS and some of the NITs,” said a student.

The seat allocation for the prestigious IIT & ISM is in process and the first merit list for the same has been declared on July 1, 2014. Over 9,784 seats are up for grab this year.
