As the entrance exam for joining IITs is set to join, students who haven’t done that great in their class XII board exams can take the exams again, in particular for students who passed their class XII exams in 2012. Students who have dropped a year to plan for JEE 2013 can improve their board exam marks, as the new selection process at IITs do consider board exam marks.
The respective State Boards would make appropriate arrangements for helping out these students through a special dispensation. Repeaters need not worry because of the ‘top 20 percentile rule’, another decision taken by the MHRD meeting is that the examinations will be conducted in the regional language if the concerned State government comes up with a request to that effect.
