So much has been discussed this year on IITs, quality of IIT students and faculty at IITs. Conclusions led to a proposal of new format for selecting candidates to the prestigious IITs. From 2012, IITJEE will have a minimum subject wise cutoff, “at least 10 percent in each subject and 35 percent in aggregate in order to be in the common rank list” (via). The decision to fix the minimum percentage was taken at the joint admission board meeting which held yesterday in New Delhi.
The board decided to provide relaxation for OBC candidates and SC and ST students. “Candidates of OBC category must score at least 9 per cent in each subject and 31.5 per cent in aggregate to be in the OBC rank list,” said a statement issued by IIT-Delhi. Likewise, candidates of SC and ST categories must score at least 5 per cent in each subject and 17.5 per cent in aggregate to be in their respective rank lists.
