Drop in IIT courses cutoffs.
This year (2012), the cutoffs for various courses at IITs has fallen. Why? I don't know! Possibly because IT-BHU has been convertrd to IIT(BHU). Here are some stats :
This year's AIR 1052 got 4 year Chemical Engg. at IIT-B in 1st when the cutoff last year was AIR 937.
I (AIR 2631) got Industrial Engg. IIT-KGP in the 1st list and the cutoff last year was AIR 2590.
My friend, AIR 3013, got 4 year Metallurgical and Material Sciences at IIT-M in 1st list and the cutoff last year was AIR 2650.
Incredible, isn't it?
