Is AME CET Fake?- Know All About It (My experience)

review of amecet

If you want to know the truth about AME CET, it somewhere means you want to join the Aviation field and want to pursue the 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 is fake or not, and whether should you take admission through it or not?

So must read this article till the end.

What could you expect here?

  • What is AME CET and its business model?
  • Advantages of taking admission through it
  • Disadvantages of taking admission through it
  • Is AME CET fake or not?
  • FAQs 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 (its 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 the entrance examination it offers students to take admission in its tie-up colleges this way AME CET earns a commission from those 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, I also pursued the Aircraft Maintenance Engineering course and you’ll be surprised to know that 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 days, 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 whether it is fake or not.

(This review is based on 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 divide this article into 2 parts – Positive and Negative.

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 sector, 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 the 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 find 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 still I can’t take any guarantee.

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

2. You could get some scholarships:

If you are good at studying and you are a topper on 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 the aviation field or any 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 the best college:

As you may know, after qualifying in AME CET you will be able to choose a college by its 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 with AME CET which 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 to any AME college and choose the stream that you want.

Don’t think AME CET is the only way to take admission to 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 which means 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 do most students say AME CET is fake?

The fake point that I realized in 2019, is they didn’t reveal the top 100 students that’s why they didn’t give more than 10-20% of 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 its 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 to be a government part.

Is AME CET good?

The good thing about AME CET is students can take admitted 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 fewer marks, you might have to compromise with your dream 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 for 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 to AME colleges.

Even the first time I also get confused. And this confusion is mostly created 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 that 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 know 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 🙂

    • Hey Kritika,
      I’m glad you find this article useful. It’s on you whether you want to take AME CET or not but make you’re passionate about this course. One more thing, before taking admissions in any colleges must check their reviews on google and YouTube (in comment).

  3. Sir , I also want to become ame ,but in today world we are said to be educated only if we have a degree so , we should do degree with this certificate course , Or my question is , is ame worth doing , Bro I am from a poor family , I want a job .

    • Hey Rohit,

      Good question!
      After knowing about the course you must have understood it’s neither a degree course nor a diploma course. It’s a licensed-based course, and after completing the training from college you will get a certificate from college. However, the certificate would be worthful in only the aviation industry. So, I would suggest you, do any degree course also with this course. Even, I and my batchmates also did the same.

      AME is worth doing. But if you’re financially poor then make sure about the fees of college. And, pursue this course only when your family could help financially till 3-4 years after joining this course. Remember, the Aviation field is quite costly. Now, you better know what you need to do.

  4. Even after clearing Amecet can we go for college admission based on our 10+12 marks? Or is it that compulsory to take admission on the basis of Amecet exam results only after having given it?

    • Hey Sweatha,

      AME CET is a private exam. And, it is not necessary to take admission in any AME college you have to clear AME CET. It is just a way to choose a college and get a small scholarship. Your 10th and 12th marks don’t much matter for AME CET and AME Colleges. However, If you want to pursue the AME course then you must have at least 45% marks in 12th.

    • Hi Peeyush,

      AME CET is just a random entrance examination to take admission to AME colleges. SO, first, you decide what you want to pursue AME course or Pilot Training because both are different fields. However, it is possible and a good way to first pursue an AME course and then go for pilot training.

  5. Hey!
    I just wanted to confirm, can we write this exam for aerospace engineering as well? Because I filled the form already and gave preference to aerospace engineering. But as the name of the exam is aircraft maintenance engineering (amecet), I was doubtful.

    • Hello Shreya,

      There is no point in taking AME CET if you intend to pursue and make a career in Aerospace Engineering. An Aerospace Engineer holds a degree while an AME holds a license. Even their work and duties are different.

  6. Hey thanks bhaiya for this information as I was going through ame cet reviews I saw many student faced the scam by them so I personally contact their counselor they were saying many people have created clone of their sites to just earn money from us and Google is paying for negative reviews they are posting and all but I wanted to ask you about BBA in aviation course I don’t want to go for AME I want to go for BBA in aviation so can you please tell me that can I get the direct admission for BBA course and also if you won’t mind can you please tell me the best BBA in aviation colleges in India so that I can opt for them
    thank you

    • Hi Sandhya,

      I wish I could be of more help regarding BBA in the aviation field and colleges that offer this course. Unfortunately, I don’t have enough information on this topic. However, I just wanted to give you one suggestion before you take admission to any college. Do your best to research the college and its faculty, and read reviews from past students. This can give you a better idea of the quality of education and overall experience you can expect from the college.

      Best of luck with your college search!

  7. Hello
    I’m interested in Aeronautical Eng but can u suggest which one is better AME or Aeronautical and if I want to pursue Aeronautical should I apply for AMECET

    • Hey Richard,

      It completely depends on your choice and area of interest. Both professions are great and in high demand. If you’re interested in aircraft manufacturing and design, you may go with Aeronautical Engineering. To pursue Aeronautical Engineering, I highly recommend taking JEE Mains and Advance over AME CET. JEE is one of the best ways to find the top engineering colleges for Aeronautical Engineering.
