JEE Advanced: Only five girls in top 100 ranks

JEE: Still a boys turf
New Delhi, (India): Finally the JEE Advanced exam results have been declared. This is the toughest engineering entrance in India to facilitate admissions to India’s top engineering colleges like IITs.

Still there is a belief that mugging up is for girls and real scientific knowledge lies with boys. Whatever, as JEE and other engineering entrance exams generally testify the deeper knowledge in theories, obviously it is generally boys’ cup of tea. This year also it has been proved right as only five girls have been able to acquire a place in the top 100 rank list. Aditi from IIT Roorkee zone who landed up on the 7th rank is the topper amongst all the female candidates who sat for the exam.

Chitraang Murdial of Rajasthan topped the JEE Advanced 2014 exam by securing 334 marks from the 360 maximum marks, an increase from the JEE Advanced 2013 topper who had secured only 332 marks.

Only 21 percent of the candidates have qualified one of the most prestigious engineering entrance exam this year. Out of the 1.26 lakh candidates who registered for the exam , a total of 27,151 candidates have cracked it.The overall list of qualified candidates has seen an increment of 3, 500 candidates as compared to last year.
