I have got a rank of 10089 in iit jee 2012,after taking a drop and preparing for three years.Though my performance in my coaching class was very good still due to my bad luck I could not focus properly during exam hours and ended up with a low rank in iitjee ,but still 10089 rank means i am in top 2% students .But it is useless as general candidates even with a rank of 7500 to 9500 are not getting seats.What is the point in declaring acutoff of 143 when general candidates with marks more than 172 have been allowed to fill choices.My marks being 170 I have not even been allowed to fill choices lets forget about getting a seat.All this drama of lowering the cutoff has been done to facilitate candidates from category other than general category , whose seats go vacant every year despite of a lower cutoff,due to lack of meritorius candidates from sc,st and obc category.But the government wants votes, not meritorius candidates in its institutes.aA person with 70 marks will sit in iit but a person with 170 marks has to undergo hardships.BUT THIS IS INDIA DUDE ,YAHAN SUB CHALTA HAI! !!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS TOTALLY UNFAIR TO GENERAL CANDIDATES!!!!!!!! can somebody please stop this .
