JEE (Advanced) 2015: IIT-Kharagpur emerges as top choice among students
With the declaration of revised JEE Main 2015 rankings on 8th July, 2015 by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), there has been a hustle amongst the students for admission processes within their favorite courses under the frame of engineering and technology.
IIT-Kharagpur- Topping the List
Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, emerged as one of the top choices for admissions all over India, and received an estimation of around 2.5 lakh applications for undergraduate admissions.
Indian Institute of Technology, New Delhi & Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai are usually amongst the popular choices for students with higher ranks, as the institutes have gained a likeable reputation, and offer nation-wide updated technology and infrastructure.
Within all 18 IITs, around 28 lakh applications were attained for 10,000 seats. While IIT-Delhi and IIT-Bombay gained 164 and 161 applications respectively, IIT-Kharagpur received an average of 186 applications for every singular seat.
What Makes IIT-Kharagpur so Popular?
The unlikely reason IIT-Kharagpur was popularly picked was due to the apparent reason of the interdisciplinary options the institute offers to the students. Also, in contrast with IIT-Mumbai & IIT-Delhi offering 16 & 15 courses, IIT-Kharagpur offers around 38 courses with core specialization and quality infrastructure.
