8 reasons why it is NOT important to go to IIT

Hmmm…. JEE is going to be held in a couple of months from now…More than 95% of you all who appear for this prestigious examination would be rejected.. and naturally feel dejected.

Here are some reasons why you should NOT : –

1.) IIT is a brand that has been bloated far beyond its actual size by coaching institutes and normal Junta. Coaching in India is estimated to be a billion dollar business. I don’t see any reason why coaching institutes would not try and hype it to get maximum out..!

2.) You talk of people like Narayan Murthy, Nandan Nilekani etc etc who are distinguished alumni of IIT..eh? But do you talk about those thousands of IIT ians who didi not make it that big and are ordinary citizens like most in the country..? Everybody who goes to IIT does NOT make it big and everyone who doesn’t does NOT end it up here.

  • Vinod Dham, developer of the pentium chip is NOT from IIT.
  • Indira Nooyi, one of the world’s highest paid executives is NOT an IITian.
  •  Harsha Bhogle an IIM A alumnus is NOT an IITian.
  • Gurbaksh Chahal , one of the most successful Indian- American entrepreneurs is NOT an IITian.
    There are thousands of such names which are there. I can name even more.. the list doesn’t end.

3.) People go to IITs not only for good academic development but for complete all round development. You have such opportunities in atleast 30-40 engineering colleges in India.

4.) You talk about pay packages eh..? The average package at IIT Delhi is just 5.2 lakhs per annum. I don’t say it is too less but I just want to tell you that it is very much like 20 odd institutes which follow it in rankings.

5.) With rapid growth and industrialisation in the country there is no dearth of jobs. You will certainly get placed somewhere or the other if you make considerable effort ( you work hard during your college).

6.) Nobody talks about graduation these days. If you wanna do well, you have to be a post graduate. You have to specialise. Do you know the average package at IIM Calcutta is 17.64 lakhs  and their lowest package is 7.5 lakhs..?

7.) It requires lot of effort to score well in the IITs. If you spend the same amount of time and effort studying somewhere else.. ( ask me ..LOL) you’ll manage a better percentage and will even enjoy life better .. Trust me :)

8.) Even the IIMs don’t give any weightage to what tier college you belong to . There is no special preference for IITians as IIM Ahemadabad showed in its 21 point system of selction.

Dont Fret.. Remember, Sorrow looks Back.. Worry looks around But Faith looks AHEAD..!

  1. all this is a great way of calming the losers but the writer of this article himself knows the standard of IIT….put everything aside….the sole feeling of being the top one percent herd of India is a bliss…….which non iitians can never feel…its alright that IIT is not everything but its quite a big and important thing….:))

    • Hi …I am an IIT ian myself.. The bliss you are talking about is i agree missed in the other case.. but ….short-lived in this case .. Not all IITians end up doing great in life… and the ones who really do know what it means and how much dey should brag about it… if you really believe in basking in the glory of your past.. Den God help you boy… Hehe…

      PS : – I guess you re one of those poor-informed underexposed facchas who wear IIT T shirts and roam around the city/town showing off…eh? Grow up dude… !

    • Please do not use foul language here. It is a public forum. Everybody has the right to express their views but maintain the decorum.

      its not any of your faults,god is irrational giving brain some have got much nd some have none!!

      • yeahh truly god shuld hav gvn brains to u .. altleast u could hav understood wot iit n a nit is awl ’bout …for ur info i wz in nit albd…n nw ’em in iit kgp… but for looser’s lyk u who end up studying in sm shit priv8 colges things will nt get d repo of dese insti ur brain.. ‘neway …..no offenc …….evrybody is nt born as a winner sm lyk u r der who nvr understnd things unless r kickd on der ass!!!!!!!

  4. Awesome article buddy.. Good going man..! You will certainly do great… Keep rocking!

  5. iit errrr yeah its prestigious to be an iitian but its not a guarantee card that u would definitely be successful in the race of life……
    all that counts is how u look forward leaving behind what you have achieved and yes these former iitians or who so ever they are i think you got to anylyze stats nd brush ur mind coz i seriously think that you people have overused ur brains more than you actually have to get admissions there
    .
    .
    .
    .
    well i am not angry on you for all your silly talks but yes i do feel pity for you coz all you do is gobble without giving any attention to any other thing
    .
    .
    i strongly feel you people dont have a girlfriend nd you are desperate for them..
    u would die with loads of books in your grave lolz

  6. i think..its written by iit failed not selected student for his frustation……yarr jab select nahi hote to ambani murthi, tata sab dekhte hai..or jab jindagi bhar ek 4 m 4m ke flat me gujarati hai to non selected ko aukat aa jati hai samajh me..i m a iitian

    • i think u r d biggest fool of d country. IIT is not the only path to have a big flat lots of money in ur account and etc etc. u think people living in 4m 4m flats are nt happy……..really a very cheap thought….I dont think u r an IITiian bcoz i really appreciate an IITian and i know that an IITiian can never ever think dis way which u wrote above………..

    • Gud attitude…..
      But will lead u nowhere…
      Mind that ur thinking is just useless….
      I m very sure that IITians can neva think lyk u…
      Beware there are many who will fail u in the race of lyf and go ahead though they might not be IITians….

    • u are totally nuts
      u are a cheap girl
      & u will not success in ur lyf ever

    • idiot!!!!!!!!!!by getting admission into iit do u really think that ur a genius.
      fattu…………………………………….life is so long babes.

  7. if somebody is selected but not getting good branch then wat he should do, tags of paper pulp engineering from IITs matter or a good branch at NITs matters plz tell me????

    • It depends on your choice actually.If you are seriously interested in a branch go for it r otherwise go for IIT Tag..But I wud say that CSE at NITW is anytime better than Paper and pulp at Roorkee.

  8. Kuch Bhi article.

    Firstly, IIT are not over hyped, first come to an IIT and then say any of this.
    secondly, Hardwork is important, before coming to IIT and after also,
    if you are not going to study, nobody is going to take uo up, no matter you are from IIT or MIT..

  9. looks like this guy is saying…. if u dont get into iit dnt loose hope try getting in iim :D… shit piece of advice brother ….

    truth is IIT’s are shit … as well as iim’s ….
    if u really want to study u will certainly make to a decent collage and you will earn a good knowledge in your field of interest … but dont run after money ….. money ruins everything …. you should choose the field u enjoy …. the work you always dream to do …. an engineer without passion is nothing …

    collage dosent matter your self interest matters …….plz dnt end up studying what u really dnt want to …..

    and assholes for you information … iitians too are human being …. so dnt think anybody who got into iit must have to do something different to prove himself ….
    and the iitians who really want to do big …. always made a man out of themselves …

    for your information dnt ever compare iit’s with iim’s coz … iim degree is piece of shit when it come to world recognition … atleast outside ppl know wtf iit is … and how good there graduates are :P

    lol i just realised this article is posted by some carrer guidance site
    please dnt mislead students with money and you poor opinions :x
    you guys are ruining future of some bright lads :x

  11. its only becoz of reservation IIT’s students are blamed not 2 be the best……..nt IIT i think the system is bad

  12. IIT’s have 50% reservations and Government departmental inefficiency built in it. They are surviving due to 3 reasons-
    1. Extra ordinary Government Grants
    2. Super Caliber Students admitted-Rest 50%
    3.Experienced and committed Teachers who joined IIT when no other so much reputed Institutes were not there.

    IIT’s prestige will go down if-
    1. Institutes like IIIT,Hyderabad are opened who pay more and attract better faculty and students.
    2. Foreign Universities are allowed to set up Campuses in India.
    3. Government support goes down.

  13. the author seems to be saying to not fight for IIT but for IIM. Funny. This whole article has a sense of frustation in it

  14. Pingback: Quora
  15. Sorry to say I am not from IIT… I meet an IITD from general caste (so should be intelligent). He praised IIT alot .. how much hard work he did.. than he told me about computer programming he did in C++, Java .. blah blah and he made his own diary software.. I was impressed.. Than I had trouble with my code.. I show him if he can help.. than he told the problem will solve if I put double inside array example double x [ N],, here I defined N as integer… He said I should define N as double.. That day I realized how good IIT is.. Damn good. they can use even double inside integer which even C++ do’t allow.. They are genius.. (I am sarcastic)…
    Also, I meet another IITK , he talk about theory.. always shows by giving some electrodynamics questions.. but while discussing his work.. he cann’t understand the photo-electric effect.. intensity effect… this suggest how intelligetn they are.. Sorry to say.. being IIT doesn’t matter but what matter is how sharp you are.. Also, many good people cann’t make to IIT because in their family no one heard of IIT and the time they came to know…. it is too late because coachings make many people come to IIT.. So, I will say.. being IIT doesn’t make you intelligent.. just like being Indian doesn’t make you poor….

  16. I am not accusing anyone , but the truth is this is a way of Satisfying the one who did not get a chance in IITs, i belong to a Middle Class Bengali Family , where every one has high aspirations , but not ll gets fulfilled , in Bengali we have a Saying “Angur Foll Talk” which means The Grapes which i cannot reach are Sour , We Satisfy ourselves with this notion . it is similar , it is un doubtable that Outside india the Tag IIT (ie passed from IIT) has a special place in Foreign universities , not that they dont accept student from others , but i have see them preffering Student from IIts
    and Speaking of reservations , It is the Evil of India , My Friend Who Scored Half the Marks i Scored is studying in IITKGP and i am in Govt.REC Whats the diff between him and me He is a SC and i am a General Candidate . Not that his family is poor in fact his family is richer than mine , still he have the upper edge as he is a SC candidate , While Candidates more qualified than him dont get selected as the Seat is Reserved just for them
    Its not Jealous ness , its pity that this is how India is getting Destroyed From the Student Level !

  17. what is better getting cs trade in dtu or some pulp paper trade in iit
