The National Institutes of Technology today has taken a vital decision on the selection process that they would adopt for next year admissions. HRD Minister Kapil Sibal has earlier called for a merger of AIEEE with IITJEE, as a result the JEE has been split as two parts JEE Main & JEE Advanced.
JEE Main can be taken by all students appearing for board exams however only students who are in the top 20 percentile of their respective boards will be considered for JEE Advanced, only 150,000 of such students will be shortlisted for JEE Advanced. This process was finalized for IIT selection process next year. NITs which had to respond to this proposal has taken off JEE Advanced from their selection process, instead they will see 40% marks from board exams and consider JEE Main score alone.
The formula to normalize the board examination marks is yet to be worked out, it is important for all the students to keep a strong eye on board exams.
