IIT Bombay most preferred for 93 of JEE’s top 100

MUMBAI: The cream of the crop of the JEE toppers – the top 100 – has chosen overwhelmingly IIT Bombay at the end of the first round of admissions from 2022-23, making it the most sought-after university of technology, with Delhi and Madras a distant second and third.
Ninety-three of them chose the Powai-based college as their first choice. All but one asked for computer science; 69 made the cut. Others had to make do with their second option: 28 of them go to IIT Delhi and three to IIT Madras. Judging by the latest count, nine of the top 10 rangers will be pursuing BTech in computer science at IIT-B. A similar preference for the institute showed 48 of the top 50. The other two students chose IIT Delhi and IIT Madras. Of the 48 who preferred IIT-B, 47 chose computer science and 1 chose engineering physics.
Last year, 62 of the top 100 joined IIT-B and 32 IIT Delhi. Several factors are responsible for this preference: from geography to gastronomy and placement records to what coaching classes tell students.
