IIT JEE Pattern Changed
IIT JEE is one of the most toughest exam for admission in Engineering Courses. Indian Institute of Technology finally announced the latest pattern for IIT JEE. According to the changes done by the Indian Institute of Technology (IITs) after a compromise with the Human Resource Development Ministry in Common Entrance Test (CET) for undergraduate engineering courses, class XII scores would be used to select candidates, while tech schools continue to conduct their own admission tests.
The new format is expected to make entrance into the top tech schools tougher, but has emerged as a halfway house between the HRD ministry, which is keen on increasing the importance of board exams, and the IITs who don’t want to cede their autonomy.
Features of New Pattern of IIT JEE 2012 :
- Now candidate will have to appear in two Joint Entrance Exams which are JEE -”Main” followed by JEE -”Advanced”.
- These two exams basically combine the All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) and the IIT-JEE. In which “Main” will be equivalent “AIEEE” Exam and “Advanced” Exam will Equivalent to “IIT JEE”.
- It is not clarified but there will be a suitable cap between these two exams.
- In JEE “Advanced” category only top 150,000 candidates (including all categories) will be able to appear who have clear their JEE “Main” Exam.
- Admission to IITs will be based on the rank in the JEE “Advanced” exam.
- However, only students who come in among the top 20 percent scorers in their respective board will be considered eligible for the IITs.
- The JEE “Advanced” exam will be held by the IITs, just like the IIT- JEE. It will be conducted by a Joint Admission Board (JAB) and Joint Implementation Committee of the IITs, the same which so far conducted the JEE.
- The JEE “Main” will be conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education ( CBSE), and it will coordinate with the IITs. It will be implemented from 2013.
- Admission to the National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) will be based on the JEE “Main” exam score. A final decision on methodology of admission is pending. A meeting of representatives from the NITs is scheduled for July 4.
- Admission to several deemed universities will also be on the basis of scores in the JEE “Main” exam, which earlier took students on basis of AIEEE scores. A minimum percentage criteria will be fixed for these too.
