IIT-NIT admissions likely to undergo a major change: No board marks required from 2016

education news

The admission procedure in NIT’s and IIT’s from next year onwards could undergo a major change and will totally based on JEE Mains. A panel appointed by the government is likely to recommend to discard the weightage given to the marks that are obtained by the students in board examinations. It was said by the director of IIT Bombay and a member of panel, Devang Khakhar that they would be recommending to discard the weightage given to board marks. A final decision would be coming early in the next month when Smriti Irani will take a meeting of the NIT council. As per the previous policy, 40% weightage is of board exams, and 60% weightage is of JEE- Mains. The main cause for discarding the board exams marks is the delay in the results of board examinations and this delay led to the postponement of admissions to the IITs & NIT’s, which causes anxiety among students and parents. The United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government was blamed for this failure. A sub-committee is formed by the joint entrance examination apex board to reconsider the whole process of JEE-Mains rank allotment. The process of conducting exams should be reviewed to give candidates a break before they appear for the tests, so that their minds will be fresh at the time of the tests. The report says that the JEE Mains exam may be held earlier next year (2016) as the admission process requires more time. The eligibility criteria for JEE Mains in 2016 would be:

  1. Candidates should have subjects Physics & Math in class 12.
