Sunday, April 25, 2010 08:10:00 PM, IANS
New Delhi: In what is termed as the “largest single day examination”, at least 1.13 million students gave their All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) Sunday, seeking to join several National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIIT) and other government run leading institutes.
“The Ninth All India Engineering Entrance Examination 2010 was successfully conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) today all over India and abroad,” the CBSE said.
“This is the largest single day exam conducted by any examining body in the country so far,” the central government run school board claimed.
The board said this exam is held for admissions to B.E./B.Tech, B. Architecture and B. Planning in various national level institutes like NITs, IIITs, deemed universities, government funded institutions, and state institutes of Haryana and Uttarakhand.
A total of 1.13 million candidates were registered for this exam which was conducted at 1,623 centres all across the country in 86 cities including two abroad - in Dubai and Riyadh.
In Delhi, however, some students complained they were not allowed entry into the examination centres though they reached the venue less than five minutes late.
