Students from AP continued their golden run bagging more than 10 per cent of the IIT seats this year too inspite of change in IIT-JEE format. AP students fare very well in IIT-JEE. This year they achieved stupendous success. Of the top 10 ranks, 7 were bagged by AP students. With 9,059 seats available in 15 IITs nationwide, AP students will get 22%, meaning every 4th student joining the IIT this year will be from AP.
The credit definitely goes to the hard work put up by the students coupled with well designed state syllabus and coaching too at these Corporate institutions which intergrates all the curriculums.
State Maths is excellent compared to other Boards.
CBSE 11th and 12th is good if you are aiming at AIEEE. It will help u score better.
Yes, I too heard that students mug up but not really sure. It depends on you.
To crack IIT, u need to have strong basics. You can study in any board but your conceptual and analytical approach/skills are tested in these exams.
FIIT JEE gives you an opportunity to explore and be on your own. If u r self motivated and are willing to clarify all your doubts , submit all your CPPs and do your assignments reguarly and get it checked, you can go for FIIT-JEE else opt for Narayana/ NRI academy / Sri Gayatri / Ramaiyya Insitute.
I would suggest you to take State syllabus as I am planning the same for my daughter too. You will not have to struggle much for Maths if u are in Intermediate.
Tell ur parents to visit these institutes personally and talk to the students.
It is better for you to concentrate on your FA4 and SA2 and think about these institutes later (after Mar'11). Write all the entrance exams of various institutes and later u can decide, which one to join. I will be glad if u keep me updated too about Ramaiyya's and Narayan's entrance test.
All The Best,
