AME CET is Real or Fake- Know All About It (My experience)

review of amecet

If you want to know the truth of AME CET it somewhere means you want to join the Aviation field and want to pursue Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (AME) Course. Isn’t it?

So in this article, you will get to know all about AME CET and after reading this article you’ll be able to determine by yourself, is AME CET fake or not and you should take admission through it or not?

So must read this article till the end.

What could you expect here?

  • What are AME CET and its business model?
  • Advantages of taking admission through it
  • Disadvantages of taking admission through it
  • Is AME CET fake or not?
  • FAQ’S on AME CET
  • My honest opinion: Should you take admission through it or not?

If you don’t know what is AME CET then let me introduce it first…

According to (their official site), AME CET is the national level common entrance exam to offer admission in various aviation courses in Pan India. It motivates and guides students having an interest in the aviation sector to choose the best career option for them.
AME CET offers admission in license, graduation, diploma & certification courses of aviation sectors like the pilot, engineering, maintenance, hospitality, and management. (Presenting by their site.)

The business model of AME CET:

AME CET is not a government exam, it’s a private body that has no relationship with DGCA and the government of India. AME CET tie-up with some private colleges and through their entrance exam they offer students to take admission in their tie-up colleges and this way they get commission by their tie-up colleges.

Now it’s time to review it and tell you all about it but first, let me tell you WHO I AM and why you should trust my words?

Well, If you read my ‘About us’ page then you may find that I had been also pursuing the Aircraft Maintenance Engineering course and you’ll be surprised if I’d say, I took admission to my college through AME CET.

Wait, I have gone through it, it doesn’t mean I am supporting it or opposing it.

During my college studies, I got all information about AME CET and its business model. So I can commit, I can explain to you in better ways.  

Hence, I am going to review the AME CET and reveal the truth about it is fake or not?

(This review is according to the 2019 AME CET, chances are something would have changed now.)

Advantages of taking admission through it: Positive sides

To understand the AME CET clearly, you have to look at both sides. And therefore, I’ll differentiate this article into 2 parts – Positives and Negatives.

So, first, we talk about its ‘Positive sides‘ and the benefits of taking admission through it that I found:

1. You can take admissions in DGCA approved colleges:

As you know, the Aviation field is a private body, so along with approved colleges, many fraud colleges you could also get.

Now approved college doesn’t mean only they should be approved by DGCA and Government of India, you should also check that they should be approved according to CAR-147 of DGCA.

The CAR 147 (Basic) provides the common technical standards and guidelines to conduct recognized aircraft maintenance training courses, to conduct examinations if permitted and to issue training certificates. This is th latest revision of DGCA CAR (updated and some changes in CAR-145).

Few colleges are still approved according to CAR-145 (Not valid now for approved training organizations) and that’s not allowed by DGCA. DGCA never supports those colleges.

And it might be difficult for you to understand which college is CAR-147 approved or not and you might be trapped while taking admission.

Don’t worry! you can google- CAR 147 approved AME colleges.

But if you take admission through AME CET then there are high chances you could get a CAR-147 approved college but we don’t take any guarantee.

So, this is the mandatory point and you should be aware of it. Even if you take admission in any colleges through it still you should check first the approval and the rating of the college.

2. You could get some scholarship:

If you are good at study and you are a topper of your board exam then AME CET provides a scholarship for your first semester only, which depends on the rank that you’ll get after taking AME CET Exam. (Check it on his site)

So, If you’re not in touch with any person who belongs to such colleges where you want to take admission and get some discount then your great marks and rank in AME CET can do this.

But you should not completely believe in his scholarship chart, it could be fake (will talk later about it). Even the first time, I also got attracted by his scholarship chart.

But it’s true, you will surely get a scholarship with a certificate of qualifying AME CET.

These are the two main benefits that I have realized and experienced after taking admission through it.

Now, let’s talk about the negative sides…

Disadvantages of taking admission through it:

1. You could miss a best college:

As you may know, after qualifying in AME CET you will be able to choose a college by their counselling program, and in this counselling, you’ll get colleges and streams according to your marks, rank, and hopefully luck.

(If you don’t know what is stream then check out our post on AME Course)

And if you get fewer marks and ranks but still qualify then chances are you won’t get college and stream as you want. Even some best colleges do not tie up AME CET that you could miss if you take admission through AME CET.

The counseling pattern could be the same as JEE Mains and Advance but AME CET is not JEE Mains and Advance. So, with your fewer rank, you can take admission in any AME college and choose the stream that you want.

Don’t think AME CET is the only way to take admission in AME college. Those tie-up colleges may also have their own way or entrance exam to take admissions.

2. Scholarships, Exam ranks, and Results:

As I said, AME CET provides scholarships according to your rank but don’t think that you’ll get a scholarship for all semesters.

Look, most of the students think that If they’ll come in the top 10 then they will get 100% scholarships that mean they don’t need to pay any money in college.

ame cet scholarships

Notice that scholarships will be applicable on tuition fees for 1st-semester fees only. (Tuition fee doesn’t mean including hostel, admission fees, and other fees)

Let’s talk about…

What is really FAKE and why most students say AME CET is fake?

The fake point that I realized in 2019, they didn’t reveal the top 100 students that’s why they didn’t give more than 10-20% scholarships to any student. And I am saying this confidently with my experience.

They provided us 10% scholarship at 250 to 500 rank (in 2019 and at that time there was no scholarship for the student who only qualified), which means if your college tuition fee is 90000 INR then you’ll get only 9000 INR as a scholarship.

In 2019 (or maybe in the present time also), AME CET didn’t reveal the topper students’ publically (on the web). Only you’ll get to know your result and rank. That’s why most students say, AME CET is FAKE.


AME CET is private or government?

Most of the students get confused and they believe that AME CET is a government exam.

AME CET is not a government entrance exam and it’s not conducted by DGCA. Whereas it is a private body not approved by DGCA and their examination is conducted by UDAI Aviation Pvt Ltd.

Remember, The Aviation field is a private industry, and most institutes or colleges are also private for this course. So, never expect AME CET is a government.

Is AME CET good?

The good thing about AME CET is students can take admission in DGCA approved colleges while getting a scholarship (if get a higher rank) for their first semester if they qualify.

But the bad thing about AME CET is with your fewer marks, you might have to compromise with your dreaming streams and colleges. However, you could also get the best college without taking the AME CET exam.

Is the AME CET exam tough?

You can check the syllabus or sample papers of AME CET on his official website which is based on the 12th. And If I talk about the exam and the LEVEL of the questions then you just need to study with NCERT books that could be enough to qualify AME CET.

AME and Aeronautical Engineering:

Most students think that Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (AME) is the same as Aeronautical or Aerospace Engineering and due to this assumption they take admission in AME colleges.

Even the first time I also get confused. And this confusion mostly creates by AME College’s names like; Indraprasth Institute of Aeronautics or Bharat Institute of Aeronautics. So, don’t go with the name.  

AME CET clearly states that AME, Aeronautical Engineering, and Aerospace Engineering are 3 different courses. You can check its sitemap and understand all about them by clicking here.

So first decide what you want to be.

My views and points:

So here I explained in detail all about AME CET including its positive and negative sides.

I am not saying and accepting AME CET is completely FAKE, however, you should know all about it. I think now you’re able to decide.  

So what’s your opinion about AME CET, Will you take admission through it?  Let me known in the comment. 

And If you ask me, what’s my views then I must say, you should try it once, and if you get a scholarship, college, and stream as you dreamed then absolutely go with it but If you don’t get then it’s up to you.

Once again, I will repeat if you don’t have proper knowledge about the AME course then click here and read my post where I explained all about the AME course.

  1. Thank you so much for cleaning my mind and clearing all my doubts…I was really confused whether I give ame cet or not…I have also registered for the ame cet last week…but as I want to become an aerospace engineer…I am not going to give this ame cet…I appreciate your help 🙌 thanks again ✌️

    • Hey Manasee,

      I am glad you found it helpful. In this article, I have shared all about my experience with this course and AME CET.
      Even some of my friends also had the same doubt that you had. But they took admission unknowingly through AME CET.

      But I appreciate, you’re not going to repeat that mistake 🙂

  2. Hii,
    Saurabh sir,
    I wanna know about the modules(syllabus maybe)…. are they tough…cuz I wanna join AME but pass percentage is 75….so pls

    • Hey Sahil,

      Modules papers are not so tough. It all depends on your labor and study. Module papers contain only objectives questions, which may be tricky sometimes. So, your concepts and knowledge should be clear.
      And, If I talk about your percentage and AME then just go ahead, You can make it 🙂
