Khichdi of offline & online mode will ruin the AIEEE

Still I can't digest this mixing of online and offline mode for AIEEE by CBSE. Some fundamental questions I have in mind against this are stated as under
1.How can they come to a common merit list for students who have gave different papers consisting of different questions.?
Take for instance the students who got online date beyond 20 May, by the time they will give examination they have seen what was there in offline paper and what was there in online content also. In a way they can easily figure out what to expect in their paper and if carefully planned can easily enhance their performance by a great deal. 
2. Traditionally IIT and AIEEE are such exams which we (I mean teachers involved in coaching) also wait eagerly to see what new conceptual question they will ask which we haven't thought and seen yet. Every year you can find  some question which are totally new and these are the questions which decide the rank of the meritorious students. Basically they are the true filters to select the best .These questions are the backbone of these examination systems for which they are highly acclaimed even in the western world. But in an online computer based test running for 20 days or 40 shifts its impossible to frame 40 such great conceptual questions of equal difficulty level.What it means that if you want to maintain the level of paper for 40 different sets you are forced to dilute the difficulty level of  paper as it is easy to frame 40 easy questions of same level.Such a thing will ruin the quality of our prestigious IIT's and NIT's .
3. I prefer traditional pen and paper thing as this I believe has the real thrill of competition where hundreds of your peers come to exam center and all jointly face the paper.This is the real examination I believe where you mental toughness is truly tested.Just think of a 100m race or say a F1 race, will it have the same excitement if each runner is allowed to run one by one. No one will watch and no one can enjoy and even the player looses the motivation.
4. In our country where corruption is so rampant its difficult to conduct a three hour paper fairly.How can you trust the staff involved for fairness in each of the forty sessions and that too in city like Kota???

Last year the number opting for online examination was only 600 and hence they were able to conduct without any technical snag but if the number rises by a great deal I doubt the capabilities of technical system in place.You can't give citation of SAT or GRE as there that is only one stage of admission. There are many other filters there to check the quality of student which aren't there in our proposed system. Even the same is the case for CAT.

Well, a surprise has come out this year in the form of the notification for AIEEE 2012. It is first time that such a large scale examination forms can be filled only online. I personally got shocked to find this as in our country the online process can be quite troublesome for the majoruty of people not tech savy enough .
Well the application can be filled  from 15 Nov to 31 Dec.
I think the cyber cafe owners have some good days ahead. A step in there intrest by the Government :)
