Do Not Ignore Board Exams : Sibal

HRD Minister Kapil Sibal revealed that the pattern of IIT JEE Entrance Exam For the session 2013, was being changed so that “students do not get away from school scholastic system”. He said “An aberration has occurred between those who can afford to go for coaching for IIT-JEE and brilliant students who can't afford to complete with them”.

Accordingly to the new scheme being finalized, 40% marks will be based on the school board exam results. The move will ensure that stuents pay equal attention to Board exams while preparing for JEE. Sibal said there will be two exams for IIT-JEE – The main exam, which will quiz students on their knowledge of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, and the advanced Exam to access the depth of learning of a candidate.

On a function attended in IIT Delhi the minister was speaking to mark the end of the Golden Jubilee Celebrations of the institute. Sibal also said the question papers for IIT-JEE will be set by IIT faculty so that the “Brand of IIT is not diluted”. “As requested by the IIT's, we are not changing the name of the examination. We will continue to call it the Joint Entrance Exam”, he added.

However, he announced that the ministry was considering a new process for appointing directors wherein “Candidates will be asked to submit a vision for their tenure, and once selected, there contribution at the end of their term will be assessed so as to increase accountability and also to make sure that the system delivers”.
