From next academic year on the merger of IITJEE & AIEEE will lead to Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test (ISEET) which will be held in two phases as main examination and advanced examination in April & May next year (via).
Earlier HRD Ministry after hearing opinions from T Ramaswamy Committe had meetings with IIT Council & NIT Council and drafted the plan to hold a single engineering entrance test through out the country. IIITs too have agreed for the proposal, the test which will be called Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test (ISEET) in it’s debut year will only be an entrance gate way for IITs, NITs, IIITs and few centrally funded universities.
Apart from the merger of IITJEE & AIEEE HRD Ministry wants to tweak the selection process; selection to these prestigious institutes will now be linked with board marks also (nearly 40% weightage will be given to Class XII marks). This idea is disliked by many students who prepare for IITJEE; such students who concentrate to get into IITs will take minimum classes and represent in their board exams and majority of time is spent in their coaching institutes dwelling into JEE preparation. HRD Ministry and the Government of India wants to put a break to such activities.
