About JEE Main 2014:

The pen & paper based exam was conducted by CBSE on April 6, 2014 and computer based exams were held on April 9, 11, 12 and 19.  About 13.57 lakh students appeared for the exam across the country. Among them, 1.54 lakh candidates, 28,666 of them girls were declared eligible to write the entrance exam for the IIT’s i.e. JEE-Advanced to be conducted on May 25th. The cut-off for appearing for JEE advanced was 115 for general category, 74 for OBC, 53 for SC and 47 for ST.   JEE Advanced 2014 is the gateway examination for admission to prestigious 13 IITs and ISM Dhanbad.



More than 90,000 students from the top six states were selected as per the statistics below:

The above statistics shows that excepting these ten states, the success figures are not encouraging in other states due to lack of awareness about the importance of IIT’s and NIT’s, which very well applies to Karnataka also.


CFAL had trained the students for 2 years. This consisted of 1400 hours of class room training, tests and mock exams. Experienced and dedicated professors mentor the students and the course material is unique. It has been tailor-made for professional entrance exams including JEE(Main & Advanced), KVPY, CET and BITSAT. Quality is the main focus at cfal. Constant monitoring and individual attention to students has contributed to these phenomenal results.


 There was a general opinion that getting into IIT’s & NIT’s was extremely difficult if not impossible and hence in engineering, CET was the only choice. cfal had started the training program with the aim of changing this paradigm and the results speak for themselves. This establishes the truth that we have very intelligent students in this region but there had been a lack of proper guidance and information.
