IIT-Bombay Wants CET-2013 In Its Own Way

The faculty members of IIT-B (Indian Institute of Technology- Bombay) have across a decision to introduce the proposed format of Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) from 2013 but have also put forward their own terms and conditions to the HRD Ministry.

The conditions laid by the IIT- Bombay which were refused by the HRD Ministry earlier include introducing the new format from 2014 instead of 2013 where JEE- Advanced will be a subjective paper and not assigning weightage to marks scored in Class12 board exam .

However, in an effort to resolve the issue it was decided in the meeting on Wednesday, 20th June-that the senate can agree to implement the proposed format from 2013 provided the clause to include class 12 marks for screening students in JEE- Main is scrapped off.

Besides all these, the board marks can be used as cut off only as practiced under the present system. The institute also decided that IIT's should exclusively conduct the second test for shortlisted candidates. As per the ministry the second test will be conducted on the same day as JEE Main and all engineering colleges can use the score for providing admission but IIT-B is not ready to accept this.

The faculty members have also decided that IIT's will conduct the JEE-Advanced (Second Test) on different date probably by the end of May, after the results of JEE-Main are declared. However, IIT-B faculty members revealed that final decision will be taken to meet by end of June or in July.

The HRD Ministry, has announced after its meeting with the IIT Council that the new format of JEE will be introduced in 2013 and class XII board marks normalized on the basics of percentile, in addition o the marks secured in JEE- Main exam with same weightage will be used for shortlisting students for the JEE- Advanced Test.
