Well we all have known IITs, any kid you talk to will probably say wow IIT it’s my dream to do my Engineering there. Institutes of national importance IITs are together as in they conduct a Joint Engineering Entrance (JEE) and select the students based on merit in JEE. From next year on IIT Kanpur & IIT Delhi wants to part ways with other IITs, the reason being the newly proposed engineering CET by Kapil Sibal.
IIT Kanpur senate was the first to say that ‘ We want to have our own entrance test’; following lead from IIT Kanpur the senate of IIT Delhi too want to have their own entrance test. It possibly means if the CET as proposed by Sibal is in place, IIT aspirants should also take two other tests one for IIT Kanpur and one for IIT Delhi just to make sure your options are not narrowed down.
The idea of having a common engineering entrance test according to Sibal is to reduce the stress of talking multiple entrance exams. For NITs & IIITs you should go with AIEEE while IITs only consider JEE scores, Sibal has hit on spot and said every engineering college including IITs, NITs & IIITs should be put under a common engineering entrance test.
With IIT Kanpur & IIT Delhi moving away from the newly proposed engineering entrance test what is the fate of the new engineering entrance test?
