Each year, boys max out seats at the Indian Institutes of Technology. But the count of girls who secured JEE ranks has doubled to 2,886 since the last edition of the exam. Yet, the tech schools will on another front continue to be an unequal world: students from the IIT-Bombay zone (home to Kota) dominate the list of selected candidates. But the southern zone has bagged the credit for having eight of the top 20 rankers, most from Andhra Pradesh.
B-town boys have bagged the top ranks: Faridabads Arpit Agrawal topped the JEE with a score of 385 (out of 401); he is followed by Chandigarhs Bijoy Singh Kochar and Bhilais Nishanth Koushik. Priya Inalaall-India rank (AIR) 21from AP is the girl’s topper. Science is this Asian Physics Olympiad gold medalist’s first love. She is joined by two other girls in the top 100.This year, 1.5 lakh girls took the JEE free of cost. Clearly, the plan to not charge them worked: the headcount of successful girls is exactly double of last years 1,443. Three boys tied at the score of 369: Jaipurs Nishit Agrawal (AIR 6; Bombay zone topper), Anant Gupta (AIR 7; Roorkee zone) and Kandivlis Manik Dhar (AIR 8; Maharashtra topper).Competition was compounded by the fact that JEE 2012 was tougher than its predecessor. The cut-off has dropped to 172. Last time; it was 229.The difficulty level has indeed gone up, said Avinash Mahajan, IIT-Bombays JEE chairman. An analysis of the top 100 students shows that 31 hail from the western zone and 38 from the Madras zone. The Bombay zone also has the highest number of candidates in the top 10,00,294.
