The Inception
The 'Physics after Engineering' blog was incepted. A month later a WhatsApp group of the followers of the blog was created.
3rd March 2018
First success
JAM results were released and 17 of our Engineers made it to MSc Physics in IITs. These are the first generation members. Some of them were selected to ICTS, TIFR, HRI, IISERs etc.. Their success not only gave us inspiration but also gave us a first glimpse at the potential the community holds.
20th March, 2019
The good coming back
Those that scored good in the exams and got into top institutes started giving back to the community by writing blogposts about their preparation, interview experiences and motivational personal stories etc... These have immensely useful for exam prep and have inspired the next-gen PAE members and this happened....
March-April 2019
A massive feat!
4 out of top 5 in JEST & 8 out of top 25 in JAM are engineers from PAE community. A guy Rishabh Kaushik, secured AIR 1 in both JAM & JEST. Of course as per the tradition, many of them have written blogposts sharing their knowledge & experience.
March 2020
A Problem
Nakul Aggarwal, an engineer from PAE, despite having AIR-55 in JAM wasn't given admission in any of the IITs. IITs had a eligibility criteria of 4 sems of Physics in UG for MSc Physics programmes, owing to which many engineers were worried about their eligibility. While some were relegated to IITs lower in their preference order despite stupendous ranks. Some like Nakul were denied admission. So, we detailing all our problems(even made a brochure). and started mailing the IITs and approaching different people in IITs and eminent scientists like Dr.H C Verma (The mail in our homepage is during these conversations) requesting a change in policy.
July 2020
An unbelievable reform by IITs (thanks to PAE?)
A momentous day in the history of COS community, in a historic move, all the IITs have made all engineers patently eligible for MSc Physics programs! Although there was no official statement mentioning that our mails have had an impact, we believe the timing can't be a coincidence. (Details are in the textual version of this page)
1st September 2020
Citizens of Science
Symbolising the Silver-lining that our work has been, at the end of 2020, the worst year for our generation, the 'Citizens of Science' website was officially launched merging the PAE & MAE blogs into it.
