Just when everything was about to materialize for ISEET 2013, IITs seek more time to study the proposal of changing the existing selection pattern for the country’s most coveted Engineering Colleges. As per latest report by TOI, ISEET might well get postponed to 2014.
As we reported earlier, ISEET (Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test) will be a merged version of IITJEE & AIEEE. ISEET was proposed by MHRD inline with T.Ramaswami Committee report, the current proposal of ISEET will swap the entire selection process to revolve around academics. 40% weightage to XII Std. marks will be given to IITs which wasn’t the case earlier, students were selected purely on merit in IITJEE.
JEE is regarded as one of the toughest technical entrance exam to crack, students take coaching right after their Class X to make it to IITs. This is totally disliked by MHRD they wish to make academics more important than the tips & tricks that coaching Institutes teach. A thorough knowledge in subject will have a pool of more students, cracking JEE though is an implication of their commitment in subject MHRD still have different views.

Our views on ISEET is that MHRD should also consider views & opinions from the ex students of IITs. Most of them like the five decades old JEE than ISEET, our poll reports indicated that 52% will agree for ISEET while 48% will not agree the proposal.
