Chirag wants to pursue research in astrophysics. “I have been preparing for the Indian Institute of technology entrance examination for four years. Therefore, I wanted to appear for the examination. And I can surely say that the IIT entrance exam is one of the toughest entrance exams. The entrance for IIT tests a student’s knowledge in physics, chemistry and math. On the contrary, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology judges applicants on the basis of their personality and how much they have leveraged from the opportunities made available to them.
Parameters for both the institutions are different. The admission into MIT is a lengthy application process and includes essays, details of the applicant’s personality and background. Whereas the IIT entrance needs a lengthy preparation to get through”, said Chirag.
