Due to absence of a centre in the city, the students had to travel to neighbouring states to appear for the offline All India Engineering/ Architecture Entrance Examination (AIEEE) held on Sunday.
Nearly 40,000 students from Chandigarh, Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh appeared for the offline examination across 70 centres in Bathinda, Shimla, Hamirpur, Hisar, Faridabad and Kurkshetra.
There were only two centres in the city for All India Architecture Examination at Delhi Public School, Sector 40, and DAV School, Sector 15. For the engineering exam, students had to rush to other states.
The examination will be conducted online on May 7, 12, 19 and 26 across 22 cities of the country.
“This year, Central Board of Secondary Education introduced Assertion Reasoning questions in the AIEEE pattern,” said Sangeeta Khanna, Head of Chemistry Coaching Circle.
PB Mahapatra, Director Aryans College of Engineering (ACE) said, “The examination was comparatively easier than last year, however, the Physics section was difficult.”
AIEEE is an all-India common entrance examination conducted by CBSE, for admission to Engineering and Architecture/Planning programmes at the undergraduate level.
The result of the test will be declared on or before June 15.
