Two step entrance test for IITs, NITS & IIITs, 40% weightage to Class XII result

Posted Tue, 05 Jun 2012 06:54:00 -0000

Now it's time for change in admission process for all IITs, NITs and IIITs of the country. Human Resource Minister Kapil Sibal said that from 2013 there will be new selection criteria for giving admission to students in these technical institutes of the country. This new test will give weightage to Class XII results at the time of selection. Kapil Sibal made this announcement in a combined meeting of IITs, NITs and IIITs.

He further explained the new admission process and said for IITs and other central institutes students will have to clear a different selection procedure and have to complete all the steps according to the new format. This new exam format will replace both the prestigious entrance tests - IIT-JEE and AIEEE.

Now to get admission in these institutes students will have to clear main test and advanced test. But for getting admission to all centrally-funded institutes, 40% weightage will be given to Class XII performance, 30% to performance in main exam and 30% in advance test.



Besides, if you are planning to get admission IITs you have to go through a different admission process according to which there would be a filtering process involved. The board exam result and main test will be given 50% weightage each. But only 50,000 students will be selected for final advance test after considering their performance in the board exams and main exams.

New JEE Pattern - All you need to know

  • New pattern JEE will be held in 2013
  • It will replace IIT-JEE, AIEEE, MHT-CET and other engineering entrance tests
  • JEE will have JEE-Mains and JEE-Advanced
  • Only those qualifying in JEE-Advanced can are eligible for admissions to IITs
  • Board exam marks will be given high weightage
  • Students who appeared in Class 12 examination in 2012, can reappear next year to improve their performance. CBSE & state boards will jointly work on this arrangement.
  • IITs will have complete control over the JEE-Advanced paper setting, evaluation etc.
  • CBSE will provide administrative support for conducting the exam where over a million students are expected to appear

Sibal said, "The merit only in advanced examination will be considered for admission." While explaining the selection process he said that those students who crossed the hurdle of 50% weightage to board marks and good performance in the main exam will be considered at the time of making merit list. The selection procedure for IIT would differ from other institutes. But counselling for IITs and other institutes will be done jointly. He said, "I as a student will get a rank in IIT and also get a rank for NIT and IIIT. I will give my choice in both and depending on which is my first choice in either, I will get a seat."

    Hi,

    40% is much more weight , it should be around 10 %, not more then it.

    Regards,

    To get admitted in Engg degree courses one has to pass class XII exam. Sadly enough so far the score of this qualifying class(XII)was neglected(funny!!).
    The proposed system to consider classXII exam marks(50%) is definitely the most logical & will reward sincere,deserving candidate

    it can be said that it is good for only those students who have their high percentage in 12th or for those who are so intelligent so according to me it's overall good

    To
    Sri G.B.Reddy
    Chairman JEE Organizing committee
    I.I.T. Delhi

    Dear sir
    You are hereby served with the LEGAL NOTICE:

    1.-That you have conducted joint entrance exam for various Indian institute of technology situated in India for various undergraduate courses this year.i.e.2012.

    2.-That their is reservation policy which says 27% quota is reserved of OBC sect and 15% for SC and 7.5% for ST.

    3. -That this reservation is subject to definite relaxed criteria i.e. 10% relaxation in cut off marks to OBC and relaxation of 50% in cut off for ST \SC\PD.,with respect to general category

    4.-That this year there is not much change in the number of seats from last year but you have allotted rank to around 24000 students .the step you have taken is to lower the standard of IIT beyond relaxed criteria limit in order to accommodate reserved class as is clear from the following facts:

    5.-That though common merit list is prepared up till rank of 18466 but you have invited student only up till rank of 9723 from general category i.e. student securing 171 marks. 6.- That in such situation you were required to call OBC student up till 153 marks and ST\SC and PD students up to 85 marks for counseling , but you have overplayed first by needlessly lowering cut off to 141 marks for general category even you knew from previous years data that so much student would never be called for counseling and then by calling all the OBC students up till 127 marks and all the SC\ST and PD up till 72 marks for counseling undermining the rules of the relaxed criteria ratio .The whole exercise seems to lower the relaxed criteria itself from 10% to25% for OBC to fill OBC quota in violation of relaxed criteria rule to lower the standard of IIT's

    7.-That as per the guidelines and practice adopted so far only 1.4 times the number of seats in each category, students are called for counseling but this year 4805 OBC ,3464 SC and 1112 ST student were called for counseling which is more than permitted(1.4 times) .Further 171 (GEN) to 127(OBC) the relaxed criteria comes to 25% ,similarly for ST\SC\PD relaxation comes to about 59% which is utter violation of the reservation criteria .In case student up till 171 marks were called simultaneously only student up till 153 marks in OBC category and 72 marks in SC/ ST could be called to maintain the relaxed criteria subject to which seats can be filled.

    8.- That cut off marks can be decided on the basis common merit list marks or general category marks as it forms the basis of 10% and 50% relaxed criteria but you have purposely extended this list against the interest of general category student and to give undue advantage to OBC student and to lower the standard of IIT.
    9.- That reservation policies in IIT were implemented with a definite relaxed criteria keeping in view the standard i.e. reservation without compromising with standard.
    7.That now even if you have allotted rank to around 24000 student you are required to call the students in the ratio of relaxed criteria i.e. If students getting 171 marks in general category are called for counseling then the student securing minimum 153 marks in the OBC sect and the students securing 85 marks for the ST\SC\PD should be called for counseling .Giving seats to students scoring below the respective marks will violate the relaxed criteria and is illegal and objectionable and would amount to lowering the standard .YOU are not entitled to artificially lower the cut off for the general category when there are more qualified student above that marks ,whole of your exercise seems to utilize full reservation quota on the cost of lowering the standard .
    You are therefore hereby called upon to immediately mend your counseling procedure as per rules .If in spite of this legal notice you fail to correct the default pointed above LEGAL action in the interest of general public will be taken against your institution and you are responsible for all cost and consequences .

    Very well organized,I loved this break up because whoever would score in 12t h standard would have to go through entrance and show the real talent and still the result of 12th considered somehow.

    The weightage must be much lower. It is not correct. Har koi janta hai k 12th k result me kitna ghotala hota. Kisi achche student ka marks isliye kharab ho jata hai k jis teacher k paas us ka copy gaya uska us school k sath lafra hai. practicle k marks school k teacher dete hai lekin kuch school k aise teacher hai jinhe marks dene me achcha nahi lagta. Agar teacher ne galat parhaya aur aap bol diye to aap ka marks katega. And many more
    In other hand. Aap ko har kuch nahi lekin aap teacher ko paisa ya party de dijiye to aap ka kaam bangya. Aap k achche marks aagye aisi bahot sari cases hai jis k waja 12th ka percentage achcha ho jata hai. Har saal kuch aise mil hi jate hai jo 12th me 80 percentor hai lekin state jee exam hi main jo kuch hi mahino k baad hota hai us me 20 thousand, 30, 35 even 40 thousand bhi cross kar jate hai. Think about this. how can it possible? 2 mahine me wo sab kuch bhul gaye nahi, unhe itna jyada pata hi nahi tha to bhulenge kya! Weightage of 12th must be elimineted. otherwise it will damage the standard of competative exams. Har student ko 12th me sahi marking nahi milta. Kisi ko usse kam milta jitna wo deserve karta hai aur kisi ko jyada bcoz of channels relationship with any teacher & having a lot of money. Think yyyyyyaaaaarrrr
