    Its just because of the introduction of NEW IITs, first all try to get into IITs then they start leaving coz of not getting IITs or Branch of their choice leaving the seats vacant. IITs should give students another chance to get admission for these seats.

    I do not understand why students are always so confused. They are confuse in colleges which to chose, they are confused in branch preferences, subjects, societies and bla bla bla.
