According to a report, the IIT Council has zeroed in the ongoing discussion on the selection process for the IITs. A new format to be implemented from next year has been finalized, students must now score and stay in the top 20% of their respective board exams to take part in the JEE main examination.
The main examination will be multiple choice based, the top 150,000 students will then be shortlisted for the advanced JEE examination. The main examination is not a final decider it is a semifinal and the advanced test is the final or the decider test for the IITs.
MHRD, IIT Council along with IIT senates had several meetings in the past and couldn’t drew conclusion. The meeting which was held today was not attended by Kapil Sibal, Sibal who earlier called for one nation one test has finally ended up keeping two tests JEE Main and JEE Advanced instead of AIEEE & IITJEE.
In practical terms the proposed new format will most likely pressurize students more, earlier students had the opportunity to gear up in the last minute by acing the final and single version of either AIEEE or IITJEE. With the new proposal in place, pressure is mounted with the 20% pool rule. The chances are killed the moment student fails to get into the top 20% pool, they can neither go for the IITs, nor the NITs, IIITs, centrally funded institutes and deemed universities.
The new proposal is calling parents to put their wards into private colleges instead of coaching institutes (JEE or AIEEE) and pressurize them to secure 99 to 100% in board examination. Study hours, extra classes, hostel life instead of attending coaching classes is all the difference that has been bought to the untested new JEE format.
