total candidates in IIT are around 20,00000 and seats are around 15,000 therefore ratio will be 20,00000/15,000 = 133.33
but in aipmt:
total candidates are 4,00000 and seats are 1800 therefore ratio will be 4,00000/1,800
=222.22

so there are around 222 students fighting for one seats in aipmt but there are only 133 students fighting for one seats in iit ,that is why aipmt and aiims are much tougher than iit and cat

Toughness of an exam depends upon various factors like candidate's preparation and his basic knowledge. Before Posting about the toughest exam I would discuss about the various exams in detail

CAT Exam

CAT Exam's syllabus is just Maths and English upto the level of 10th standard. However many finds this exam to be tough as it tests the reasoning power,speed and accuracy of a candidate. To clear this exam one needs to have a natural aptidue of Maths.

Questions of CAT Exam are bit tricky which can get anyone wrong even with a thorough preparation. To crack this exam one needs to do a lot of practice of English Grammar, Quantitative Aptitude and Data Intepretation. Besides this the candidate should have a good verbal reasoning and vocabulory.

It takes around 1-1.5 years of preparation to clear this exam. One needs to do a lot of practice of the above mentioned topics. As this tests the spped and accuracy, one needs to practice a lot.

From a competition prespective, this exam expects a high cut off of around 99.7+ percentile, if the application rating is low. If the application rating is high, then the cut off drops to around 99. In the later case the candidate is expected to have an excellent academic carrer, good work experience, good communication skills and management skills which are tested through an interview.

Thus I would conclude that this exam is easy if one has natural aptitude of maths and does a lot of practice of English and maths.

In my earlier post i discussed about CAT Exam , in this post i will be discussing about GATE exam.

GATE Exam

GATE Exam is bit tough to clear for CS,EC,EE,IN and ME streams especially if you are seeking admission for IITs/IISc.

The syllabus of GATE spans almost 20- 25 engineering degree papers, 5 maths papers (degree level), Quantitative aptitude, Data interpretation, English Grammar and Vocabulory. A candidate with a good knowledge of the engineering basic of the relevant stream with a good aptitude in maths might require a preparation of about 1-1.5 years.

GATE basically tests the understanding skills, reasoning, speed and accuracy. One needs to spend time for understanding the basic engineering concepts of the relavant stream to clear this exam.

The IIT Cutoff for PG admission varies from stream to stream. For getting a good specialisation in IIT/IISc one needs to have a cut off of around 99.80+ Percentile.

Thus I would conclude that this exam is easy if one understands the basic engg concepts and solves the problems of Engg and Maths.

IITJEE and AIEEE.

IITJEE and AIEEE are engg entrance exams at national level. These exams are considered one of the toughest exams in India. The Syllabus of the exam contains Maths, Physics and Chemistry at CBSE 12th LEVEL. A candidate with a good basic knowledge of Science(Physics,chemistry) and with excellent mathematical skills can easily crack this exam with a preparation of about 1.5-2 years.

From a competition prespective

In 2010 around 4.85 lakhs students appeared for IITJEE for approx 10,000 seats and more than 9.6 lakhs appeared for AIEEE for approx 20,000 seats.

In my previous post i have discussed about some of the tough exams of India like GATE, CAT, IITJEE and AIEEE. These are the tough exams in Engg Stream and Management field. Apart from that UGC-NET and AIIMS Entrance Exam(both UG and PG) are some of the tough exams in Arts and Medical field.

Above all the most toughest exam in India which I feel is the Civil Service Exam conducted by UPSC, especially if you are targeting IAS. I will discuss about Civil Service Exam in my next Post.

CAT
The reason being it cant be cleared by cramming
You have to apply your mind
The students who take the exam are the best in the country which includes engineers from IITs,industry professionals
Even if you get a call then there's GD
Then there's an interview which is a tough nut to crack
Good Luck

Hello, its difficult to actually say which is the toughest exam, exams may be written exam or interviews.

I think civil services are the toughest written exam and SSB interviews are the toughest king of interviews in India.

Best of luck. Feel free to ask if doubts remain.

RE:

with due respect to others opinion above,most of them have no idea regarding IES exams,I suppose.for IAS any degree holder can apply,but for IES first the candidate has to undergo the grilling in BE/BTECH,only then he is able to apply for it.and for IAS atleast u have got a choice of subjects to appear in the main,but for IES he has to read all his engineering subjects along with maths, general aptitude and grammers in english

Hi, There is nothing like tough exam. It is all based on your preparation. If you prepare Well whatever is asked in the paper you will be able solve it easily . But if you didn't prepare well means even though they are simple question you won't be able to answer. Based on the words of those who write CAT,GATE Are tough paper

for students of engineering- IIT-JEE & SCRA is the toughest one.
for student of medical- AIIMS

but in the exam of CAT, the amount of syllabus it covers is just huge and the questions are not just simple to solve,you require lots of hard work and practice to clear it , SO CAT is the toughest one.
