AIEEE results: 17 students from Mangalore leave a mark
Jubilant toppers reveal their future course of action
At least 17 students from Mangalore have got ranks within the top 825 merit list (at the State level) in the All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) 2012, said Severine Rosario, Principal of a coaching institute in the city at a press meet to announce the results on Tuesday.
The students (with their ranks in brackets) are: Abhishek Rathan Kumar, Canara PU College (101); Sudhanva Bhat, Sharada PUC, (162); Adithya Madhusudhan, Kendriya Vidyalaya, Panambur (163); Akhil Kishan, Kendriya Vidyalaya, Panambur (180); Abhijith N, Canara PUC, (185); Rakesh N Rao, St. Aloysius PUC (207); Manasa M Bhat; Canara PUC (213); Abhijith Kumarchandra, Lourdes Central School (228); Chethana A, Canara PUC (239); Ashis Dhara, Kendriya Vidyalaya, Panambur (245); Nathan Herold Pereira, Lourdes Central School (318); N Subhash, Govindadasa PUC (336); Prince Shukla, Lourdes Central School (554); Gokul Premraj Lourdes Central School (628); Akash S Kottary Canara PUC (670); Manasa Shreekesh, Kendriya Vidyalaya, Panambur (708); and Lakshmi Prasad, Kendriya Vidyalaya, Panambur (824).Sudhanva Bhat said that he is waiting for the results of IIT counselling and for IISc. He said it was due to the coaching at the city-based Centre for Advanced Learning that he was able to clear the entrance exams. “It is not only for (clearing) the exams but for the subjects also,” he said. Adithya Madhusudan said, “I would like to join NIT-K, Surathkal as it is better than other (institutes), especially its research wing and the placements are very good.”
Rakesh N. Rao said, “I am going to IIT, I am quite sure of it. Most probably, IIT Madras…I will be getting automotive design engineering.” He said that coaching helped because it was not about preparing for getting to the IITs but because “they teach you concepts, the theory part, then you can solve the problems”. He said, “It is sad that schools don’t do this job as neatly…lecturers in coaching centres are experienced and fantastic, we prefer this place.”
Ashis Dhara said that his aim is to join NIT-K, Surathkal and study mechanical engineering or information technology. He said, “AIEEE is one level above school. It is not impossible to write AIEEE without coaching but it is difficult”. Ms. Rosario said a special attraction for students from Karnataka is that at National Institute of Technology Karnataka (NIT-K), Surathkal, 50 per cent of the seats are reserved for them.
