- Civil Services Examination UPSC
The top honours, undoubtedly, go to the UPSC Civil Service examinations. What do you need to know to clear this exam? Everything! Yes, everything. The candidates go through a preliminary test comprising of history, geography, economics, politics, science & technology and current affairs. The next stage is the mains exam which has 7 descriptive type papers. The successful candidates would further need to appear for an interview!
Phew! And if you falter at any of these steps, the entire begins all over again.
As soon as a child is born in India, the parents begin dreaming about a future engineer or doctor at their home. Conducted as an entrance test for the premier engineering institutes in the country, IITs, the IIT-JEE is famous for pushing the students to their wits’ end. The success rate of this examination is touted to be close to 1 is to 50.
If you are thinking of becoming a doctor in India, AIIMS is the place to be! But with less than 100 MBBS seats on offer every year and more than one lakh students competing, the AIIMS entrance exam is extremely tough to crack.
- CAT (Common Admission Test)
The scores for CAT are used for admission by the IIMs. With students from all the backgrounds fighting for the limited number of seats in the premier MBA institutes, CAT has an extremely low acceptance rate. One of the other factors that make this an extremely tough exam is the percentile form of results. If you belong to the general category, a percentile below 98 would certainly break your IIM dream.
- CLAT (Common Law Admission Test)
Aimed at selecting the brightest brains in the country, the CLAT is one of the toughest nuts to crack. Over the past few years, the exam has become extremely complex. Students for the under graduate and post graduate law courses (LLB & LLM) are selected via this examination.
