What is AIEEE?
The All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) is an examination organized by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in India. Introduced in the year 2002, this national level competitive test is for admission to various under-graduate engineering and architecture courses in institutes accepting the AIEEE score, including 30 prestigious National (NITs).The examination is held in the last Sunday in April and results are announced near the end of May. Candidates are ranked on an all-India basis and also according to their position in state. Thus, they have an All India Rank (AIR) and a state rank (SR).
Students opting for B.Arch. are tested in mathematics and an aptitude test. Students opting for B.Tech. are tested in physics, mathematics and chemistry. The duration is 3 hours but maximum marks and the number of questions vary every year. Equal weight is given to all the three sections.

Medical Entrance

The All India Pre Medical Test (AIPMT) is a yearly college entrance examination in India. The exam is conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), Delhi for admission to MBBS and BDS courses in several medical colleges around the country. Presently, 15% of the total seats in all medical and dental colleges run by the Union of India, state governments, municipal, or other local authorities in India, except in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir, are reserved for candidates who qualify this examination. Recently reservation for SC, ST and OBC has been undertaken in AIPMT. It consists of exam at two levels. First is preliminary conducted usually on 1st Sunday of the April month. The second is mains conducted in the month of May. It is the most awaited and respected exam of the pre-medical exams. AIPMT is equivalent to All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE), which is also conducted by CBSE for entrance to engineering colleges in India. In 2009 the preliminary examination was conducted on 5 April 2009 and the final (mains) was conducted on 10 May.
The pattern of AIPMT is being changed with effect from 2010.Due to complaints about the unreliability of the subjective mains; the mains are to be made completely objective like the prelims. More difficult and application-level questions can be expected. OBC reservation is being implemented as per the questionable directives of the government, but only in central institutes(i.e. not in most of the colleges covered under AIPMT).About 1900 MBBS and 250 odd dental seats are available through AIPMT, but ranks up to 2500 can reasonably hope for selection due to overlap with other entrances. In both the prelims and the mains NCERT books are used to prepare questions(almost 100% in biology).
Scheme of paper

Preliminary Examination: Objective type
The CBSE PMT Preliminary Examination consists of a single paper containing 200 objective type questions from Physics, Chemistry and Biology(Botany and Zoology).This paper needs to be completed in 3hours(10.00 AM to 1.00 PM).

Who owns the test ?
The IELTS test is jointly owned by The British Council, Planet Edu (IDP) and University of Cambridge - ESOL Examinations.

What is the Test Format ?
All candidates are tested in Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. All candidates take the same Listening and Speaking Modules. There is a choice of Reading and Writing Modules, where a candidate can either opt for Academic or General Training Module.

The first three Modules- Listening, Reading and Writing- must be completed in one day. The Speaking Module may be taken, at the discretion of the test centre, either seven days before or after the other three modules.

Which Module should I sit for, Academic or General Training ?
The Academic Reading and Writing Modules assess whether a candidate is ready to study or train in the medium of English at an undergraduate or postgraduate level. Admission to undergraduate and postgraduate courses is based on the result of these Modules. The General Training Reading and Writing Modules are not designed to test the full range of formal language skills required for academic purposed, but emphasize basic survival skills in a  broad social and educational context. General Training is suitable for candidates ho are going to English speaking countries to complete their secondary education, to undertake work experience or training programmes not at degree level, or for immigration purpose to Australia, Canada and New Zealand.

It is the responsibility of the candidate to inform the test centre whether they wish to take the Academic or General Training Modules. Centers are not responsible for providing this information. The general Training module is not offered at all test administrations. it must be noted that it may not be possible to change module later or on the day of the test.

Is there any age limit for IELTS ?
IELTS is nor recommended for candidates under the age of 16

Can IELTS be taken as an alternate to TOEFL ?
YES, over 544 US institutions recognize IELTS and accept either IELTS or TOEFL for admission to award courses. For an updated list please log on to

Can I retest only for the module where I did not score well instead of repeating the whole test ?
IELTS provides a profile of a candidate's English proficiency at a given time. It provides not only an indication of ability in a particular module but also an indication of overall ability. This would not be possible if modules were not taken at the same time. Stakeholders require an indication of proficiency at a given time. Stakeholders have expressed a preference for full re-testing to gain an accurate assessment of a candidate's language proficiency. Therefore a candidate will have to re-take the full test and cannot re-take a specific module.

For how long is a test result valid ?
There are a number of variables affecting the length of time over which an IELTS score remains valid. As a general rule it is recommended that a Test Report Form (TRF), that is more than two years old should only be accepted as evidence of present level of ability if accompanied by proof that a candidate has actively maintained or tried to improve their English language proficiency.

How soon can I repeat the test ?
From 1 May 2006 the policy on candidates re-taking IELTS has been amended. The restriction on re-taking IELTS within 90 days has been removed and candidates are able to repeat the test whenever they wish. Candidates will still be asked to indicate on their application form whether they have taken the test before. This information will appear on the Test Report Form and will only be used for monitoring purposes.

Is there a computer based version of the IELTS test ?
Yes, a computerized version of IELTS called (CB IELTS) is now available (currently in Delhi only).

What is the test fee and how do I pay ?

What is SAT?
The Scholastic Aptitude Test, (SAT) is a test given to young high school
students with a desire to attend college after receiving heir high school diploma.
The test is administered by the College Board, a national, nonprofit association 'dedicated to preparing, inspiring, and connecting students to college and opportunity'. The College Board was founded in 1900 and now boasts more than 3,800 schools, colleges, universities, and other educational organizations in their membership. The College Board helps over three million students in 22,000 high schools connect with 3,500 colleges through their services every year.

To register for the SAT tests, you need to complete a registration form either online or by contacting your local high school guidance office. Once you’ve registered and paid a small administration fee, you’ll be informed of the test date, time and location. The SAT covers many areas of academic skills including math aptitude, writing and reading skills. Your scores are then tallied and made available to you for submission to the college or university of your choice.
Three types of verbal questions are given including 19 analogy questions, 19 sentence completion questions and 40 critical reading questions.
Three types of math questions are used including 35 five-choice multiple-choice, 15 four-choice quantitative comparison questions and 10 student-produced response questions. You should know math concepts that include Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry and logical reasoning.
There are several other services that you can take advantage of after completing the SAT test. The College Board offers a program called Score Choice that lets you see your SAT exam before you request score reports for scholarship programs. You can also decide which score you want to have on your permanent records. You can request the Score Choice option by filling in this option on your SAT registration form.
Student Search Service® is a free information service for students that allows colleges to view your scores as they search for the best students for their enrollment. This way you can let colleges and universities know about you and get educational and financial aid information from them. You can request this Student Search Service option by filling it in on your SAT registration form.

Paper-based TOEFL

Until 1998 everybody in the world had to pass paper-based, standard TOEFL. The test consisted of 3 parts: listening comprehension, grammar and reading comprehension. Correct answers should be marked by pencil. Max points were 677. Except for TOEFL itself, you could pass one or two additional tests
TWE (Test of Written English, composition) and TSE (Test of Spoken English).
From July 1998 all candidates pass new, computer-based, nonstandard TOEFL.
What are differences between new and old TOEFL?
1. Changed points system. New TOEFL have less questions and max points if 300. You can compare new results to old ones using special table which you can find using the link:
2. Changed structure of test. Test of written English is obligatory. So now the test consists of 4 parts.
3. First two parts of the test (listening comprehension and grammar) became adaptive – so the difficulty of test depends on your skills. It allows to save time but easy questions give you less points.
4. The new test can be passed not 2 times a year but 4 times a week and even twice a day! You can know your points right away and official results in 14 days (instead of 1,5 months for paper-based test).

How to prepare to TOEFL test?
You can study using special CDs. Usually they contain different strategies of passing the test, test variants and variety of grammar exercises. Answering the test questions, don’t forget to watch the time and appreciate how many of tasks you have ahead.
During the test, you’ll meet several types of questions. Better to study them at home first. Don’t hurry answering, you can miss some information, even if the answer seems to be clear. After giving the answer, you cannot change it.

TOEFL as it is
Come to the test, having your passport and TOEFL Admission Ticket and Photo File Record. You cannot be late, if you are – you failed it, and won’t get money back. You cannot use electronic devices during the test, any paper, books, cannot eat, drink and talk. Many other “don’t” exist, and if you do something wrong, you can be out of test room with no results.
Test is hold for 3 hours. Choose the level of sound before the test. Once you started working, you cannot change it.

Parts of TOEFL

Listening Comprehension

You’ll listen people speaking, while a monitor will demonstrate you their photos and some other information. This part consists of two: A and B. In A you’ll hear short dialogues between two people. After each dialogue you need to answer a question with 4 variants of answer. In B you’ll hear longer dialogues with more participants, again with questions after each dialogue. Topics can be different, but don’t require special knowledge. It’s usual modern language. You’re going to need some experience in speaking and attention.
Try to answer quickly. You cannot skip questions and go back. If you pass computer test, you can read a question several times and understand it. If it’s paper test, a question would be read only one time, be concentrated!
You can imagine the answer and then try to look for similar variant among offered. In the computer variant of test you can watch a video, sometimes it contains important information related to question.
Structure and Written Expression
There two types of tasks. First is sentences which should be completed with any of 4 variants. Second is sentences with marked words which could contain a mistake.
You cannot skip questions and go back. Choose a variant that seems to be correct.
Reading Comprehension
Paper and computer variants are the same in this part. Read a text before answering. You can go back and answer one more time. If you don’t know the answer, you can skip the questions and answer it later. Answer first all questions related to one part of a text, then pass to another part and so on. Don’t leave questions unanswered.
Test of Written English
You need to study the topics beforehand. Practice writing compositions at home. Check how quick you can type if you’re going to pass a computer test. Using facts, you need to either agree or decline offered statements in half an hour!

TOEFL points
General points (0 to 300) is counted by special formula considering the difficulties of questions.
After the test you can know how many points you got or ask to decline results. It’s better to keep it, though, because nobody will send them anywhere without your agreement. To enter a great US university, you need to get 250 points (600 – paper-based test).
Be calm and don’t be afraid! After passing TOEFL you’ll be more confident in your English language skills!
