ISEET: Practically Not A Possibility From 2013

MHRD came up with a proposal to restructure the selection process at the prestigious IITs with an objective of making students realize the importance of board exams and lessen the burden of having to give multiple entrance exams. ISEET has been proposed by Kapil Sibal with inputs from T. Ramaswamy committe, the decision was to replace IITJEE (an entrance test for IITs) and AIEEE (an entrance test for NITs and several participating colleges which are centrally funded or deemed universities).

The problems surrounding MHRD’s decision

  • Weightage to board exams: Giving weightage to board exams that too for entry into IITs is something experts feel is an immature move. A 40% weightage to board exams and 60% weightage to ISEET is the pitched idea by MHRD for selecting students in IITs, NITs and few top notch engineering colleges.

Over the decades IITs never gave any weightage to board exam marks, India is diversified and each state has it’s own board, follows it’s own curriculum hence it is possible that some state syllabus is not as tough as compared to other states. There will be a problem of bringing in neutrality, though MHRD came up with a solution in the form of a formula to neutralize board exams. The question to be asked is, how good or accurate the designed formula can be?

  • Opinion from IIT Alumni: IIT alumni has been opposing any proposed changes to the selection process at IITs, informal groups have been formed to protest Sibal’s decision of doing away with JEE. The obvious question they would ask is, what was the need to change the selection process at IITs. How can a decision be taken in such a small amount of time, if there is something called as autonomy how can anyone including the government intervene in the selection process of the IITs.

As per a latest report IIT alumni are demanding status quo on implementation, the alumni association has decided to move to court and also meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to object the proposed changes to IIT selection process.

The other version of the story is that from next year on there will be two modes of test JEE main & JEE advanced. JEE main will have 50% weightage while the remaining 50% is for board exams (Class XII). Based on JEE main merit students will be shortlisted for JEE advanced which is the decider test for IIT admission. (via)

There is lack of clarity between what has been proposed what will be implemented and when it will be implemented. Do share your views and opinion!

Students Who will appear 2013 ISEET required to come in top 20% but what is the percentage criteria required to eligible IIT JEE for droppers ?Am i eligible IIT JEE 2013?
    If i eligible for ISEET then how the board will treat my board 2012 score percentage and 2013 CBSE board percentage to determine top 20% percentile?
    And how the admission process work for getting admission of droppers?
    Pls reply I am confused and i have not more time.

  2. its not gud to implement this type of test.kapil sibal is in a dilenma which is making him take wrong decision

  3. I HAVE GOT 75% AGGR. AND 77% IN PCM…. I AM GETTING CSE IN MAHARAJA AGRASEN INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY IN DELHI…… SHOULD I DROP OR GO FOR THIS COLLEGE?????????????? PLEASE HELP……….

  4. yeh iseet kabhi implement nai hona chahiye.bcoz new comers toh chalo hard work kar lenge par drop out students k liye toh koi chance hi nai hoga.unke liye toh game over samjho..waise decision kab tak finalize ho jaayega………

  5. HAM DROPPERS KA KYA HOGA HAMARE TO 12TH M BHI KAM MARKS RAHA GAYE EK YE HI RASTA DIKH RAHA THA LAG RAHA H YE BHI GAYA, PAHLE TO PATA NAHN CHALA THA PATA BHI BOARD EXAM K BAAD M CHALA K E BHI PAGAL PANTHI HO SAKTI H, KAPIL JI N TO MARVA DIYE HAM, HE BHAGWAN KAM SE KAM IS SAAL TO MAT KARWANA YE KAAM

    KAPIL SIR JI BAS IS SAAL CHOD DO PLSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS/

  6. Kapil Sibal and congress will lost their Govt all over india because of ISEET,The student union of India have unacceptable ISEET.HOPE BJP WILL HELP US IN GETTING RID FROM iseet.

  7. the step of HRD for iseet is such a nonsense step.
    as all the state boards have different syllabus and different exam pattern.for example guj.state board considers average marks of total 4 sems. and u.p. board has yearly exam pattern.so boards are not uniform throughout all the states. Also this step is dangerous for brandvalue of IIT,NIT and IIIT.
    If there is only CBSE or one common board for India then the pattern of this new exam is correct.
    so, i request HRD please remove theseall for atleast a year. we are in lot of cofusion how to prepare for common entrence. HRD should inform the institutes (IIT,NIT etc) atleast before a year but it is too instent without any thinking.
    so,please don’t play with our future…

  10. IIT me sirf top students ko aana chahiye, so board marks should not be added. . . . Kapil sirf experiment karte rehta h. . .

  11. this formt of iit-jee give more and more trouuble to the dropper batch students. first of all they prrepare for the only on iit-jee they don’t give more attention to the oard exam and now they are saying for giving 40% weightge to iit-jee.

  12. YE KAPIL KHUD DECISION NHI LE PA RAHE H KI ISEET KARNA H YA NHII YE TO BAS STUDENT PER HI SARE EXPERIMENT KARTE RAHTE HAI KAM TO KUCH H NHI ……………
    AGAR ISSET HO GYA TO SARE BACHHE FAIIL …………
    BEKAR H YE ISEET JISKI 50% AAYI HOGI USKE ENGRING BEKAR H ISEET BAKWAS H OR KUCH NHI

  13. Mr.Sibbal has cmpltly lost his mind.
    Atleas v should hav been infrmd 2 years back so that v could hav prepared accrdngly.
    ISEET 2013 fucks hard evry studnt who hs cleared 12 dis year…
    .
    Whe hav been told dat if one door is closed then god opens 10 more
    Bt
    Mr. sibbal has closed 10 doors nd has left just 1…
    Nd da idea of board weightage cmplty sucks.
    .
    Mr.Sibbal u nd ur idear sucks…

  14. i jus hope tht d governmnt takes d decision as sun as posible…..so tht we get enough tym 2 stdy accordingly! lets jus hope tht dis mess creatd in our minds is cleard soon…..

  15. I agree with the proporsal of only 1 exam at a time, but the 40%weightage from H.S is bakwass……
    We wl hv to concentrate mor on H.S then we can’t even attend coaching classes as a result we wl have to waste 1year aftr cmpltin H.S in doin again coachings…….

    I think kapil ji has done it to tk revenge or stop the iit coaching institute……

    If anyone want to concentrate only on iit then he can’t…

    Introducing english in it is also a waste idea…..

  16. kya hai mr,sibbal aap ek decision to sahi se lo unkle aap ka focuse school ke education system paer hona chaheyye agar aap coaching ko ban karna chhate hai

    ur agar aap ye soochte hai ke board ke % ko include kar ke coaching ko ban kar rahe hai to yee aap ke sabse baddie fault hai ulte aap unka work simple kar rahe hai plz zara mind se work kzye zoo log ek student ko i year me iit ke able bana sakte hai board ka kya hashra karege ..zo hai wahi patten accha hai q ki isse kise bhiu board ke student ka comperision hm uske board ke marks se nahi kar sakte

  17. I think this is a wise decision to conduct a single common entrance exam for all Engg. courses in the country. The suggestion to consider the marks of the board exam is a must. But, I am doubtful about the normalisation procedure. It shall be made as simple as possible and it should be ventilated. The main difficulty is that the CBSE is conducting the board exam only for the topics taught inthe second year of the course. But other board exams consider the topics of both years. So, it will be better to consider only the marks obtained in the second year exam excluding the practical. Then a common entrance exam shall be conducted with a weightasge of 40% for board exam and 60% for entracne exam. From the rank list so prepared the top 50,000 students may be further asked to appear for the advance level exam to be conducted for admission to IITs. All the other Engg.Colleges shall make admission form the rank list already prepared. These Engg Colleges shall include all the state owned and self financing colleges. This will help the students to overcome the burden in writing more examinations.

  18. IN THE PROPOSAL HAS KABIL SIBBAL EVEN THOUGHT OF THE 1.5 TO 2 LAKHS STUDENTS PARTICIPATING EACH YEAR FOR THE 3rd CHANCE IN AIEEE OR HAS JUST PUT ON HIS DESIRE IN PROCESS TO SATISFY HIMSELF THAT HIS APPROACH WAS RIGHT

  19. plz don,t introduce ISEET its like u are introducing a thick plate b/w the plates of capacitor to decresase capacitance

  20. guys!i think that MR. SIBBAL has gone mad,IIT K world”s best exam mein 12th k marks add krne ki koi tuk hi ni bnti,chalo agar add kr bhi de,to isse un logo ko kitna loss hoga jinke 12th mein any reason kam marks reh gaye ho,they know that they can do well further,aise logo k mind mein sabse pehle kya aata hai ki chalo improvement daalte hai but guys remember that IIT ka result 12th se pehle hi nikalta hai……………

  21. AS THE SYSTEM HAS CHANGED A LOT’
    EVERY ONE SHOULD GET A CHANCE TO ATTEMPT THIS ISEET 2013 .
    I MEAN EVEN THE STUDENTS WHO PASSED THE 10+2 IN THE YEAR 2010.

    IF THE SYSTEM HAS CHANGED IT IS DUE TO THE FACT THAT TO DECREASE THE STRESS LEVEL AMONG THE STUDENTS.
    THEY MUST BE GIVEN A CHANCE TO IMPROVE THEM .

    OTHER WISE THERE WOULD BE NO POINT IN CHANGING THE SYSTEM IF THE STUDENTS WHO SUFFERED EARLIER DON’T GET A CHANCE TO IMPROVE

  22. WHY IS THERE A NEED TO GIVE IMPORTANCE TO THE WEIGHTAGE OF THE BOARD EXAMINATION……???????

    HOW DO THE DROPPERS MANAGE IT …..

    I MEAN JUST 50000 STUDENTS SELECTED FROM THE 50%WEIGHTAGE OF BOARD AND MAINS WOULD DO A LOT OF IMBALANCE IN THE RESULTS……

    WE MUST CONSIDER INTO THESE TRUTHS WHILE CHANGING THE SYSTEM

  23. Please make a concrete decision as soon as possible. we, students r eagerly waiting for it. All I can tell rite nw is, ‘PLZ DONT CREATE A MESS’ in d young aspiring minds.

  24. Every minister in UPA is faultering. Kabil is doing his part by rigging the JEE.
    Why don’t he try to improve the school education system rather than messing things with JEE which is functioning quite well.
    He is now handling two important ministries, one is telecom and HRD. That is the big mistake.

  25. WHAT the hell is it creating confusions and all y arent they coming to the verdict so that peole could sart for prep moreover students coming in 12th are in mess of the changing pattern it should not be changed and as CHETAN BHAGAT SAID THAT IITS NEED NOT BE EXPLOITED BY THE POLITICIANS IT GIVES CREAM TO INDIA IT SHOULD BE RESPECTED

  26. Do dis wen we hav one single board n nt 50 plus boards…and an engineer is nt requird 2 hav an aptitud in english,wat if a hindi medium guy who z a damn gud studnt in pcm n knws nly the requird english ,fails 2 do wel in jee main?wat shud he do if he is born in a country jaha ki maatra bhasha hindi he?
