CBSE issues press release confirming New JEE from 2013

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued a press release confirming the changes to the selection process at IITs, NITs, IIITs, Delhi Technological University (DTU) and Centrally Funded Institutions (CFIs). According to the changes proposed, AIEEE must be assumed as the first part of JEE i.e JEE Main.

JEE Main instead of AIEEE

The JEE  (Main) (Paper I of earlier AIEEE) for B.E./B.Tech will be held in two modes, viz offline and online (CBT). The offline examination for JEE (Main) will be held on 7th April, 2013 and the online examinations will be held thereafter in April, 2013.

The  examination (Paper II of  earlier  AIEEE)  for admissions to B.Arch/B.Planning courses at NITs, IIITs, DTU, Delhi and other CFTIs will be held on 7th April, 2013 in offline mode only.

The merit list for admission to NITs, IIITs, DTU, Delhi and other CFTIs will be prepared by giving 40% weightage (suitably normalised) to class XII (or equivalent examination) or other qualifying examination marks and 60% to the performance in JEE (Main) Examination.

The JEE (Main)-2013 (Paper  I of earlier AIEEE) will have one objective type question paper. The paper will consist of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. The duration of  the  paper will be 3 (Three) Hours.

The Paper II for admissions to B.Arch/B.Planning courses at NITs, IIITs, DTU, Delhi and other CFTIs will have one Question Paper consisting of Mathematics, Aptitude Test and Drawing Test as per past practice of AIEEE. The duration of the paper will be 3 (Three) Hours.

Only 1,50,000 of the top rankers in JEE (Main), which includes students from all categories (GE, OBC (NCL), SC and ST) will be eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced)-2013 (hitherto known as IIT-JEE) for admission to IITs, IT BHU and ISM Dhanbad.  Notice in this regard has been issued by the IIT system separately.

  4. I am appreciating the parents of nine students and the Forum for fairness in education for filing the petition in Bombay High Court .This UPA Govt. is spoiling the future of lakhs of students. The opposition is also mum about this matter as they will not gain more voter regarding this matter.Only court will help to solve this problem.What about the 2012 passed student fate, as per earlier norms of iitjee and aieee, students are eligible to write the exam in two times. As per new norms they are not eligible as they are not coming in 20 percentile.What they will do? Some state Boards are not conducting the improvement exam ? This is unfair and unilateral decision taken by CBSE Board and not bothering the lakhs of students future and life.At least 2012 student should be exempted from this 20 percentile norms.Kindly I request HRD Ministry and CBSE to consider my request. The forum for fairness in education and Nine student parents have taken bold and right decision. I pray the god to get the right judgement in favor of them.
