IIT-Delhi Alumni Against IIT JEE 2013

IIT Delhi Alumni association rejected the HRD Ministry's new formula invented for the IIT JEE 2013 Entrance exam. The ministry's fresh proposal enables only the top 20% scorers of any board in Class 12 exam to enter the IIT's.

The association's decision was taken here after a two hour meeting with the representatives of IIT faculty, following a compromise between the HRD Ministry and IIT Council on Wednesday over the Entrance Exam pattern for admission to Engineering institutes.

As per the new formula, there will be a Main test for the top 20 percent scorers of all boards, and then a final "Advanced" exam, under the IIT's supervision, for the top 150,000 applicants. The new format will come into effect from 2013, if accepted by the ministry.

A statement given by the Association says "The 20% criteria and 2013 to be the beginning year of the new proposal stands rejected because such patch-work solutions have been taken in haste to meet deadlines". The HRD Ministry and IIT Council on Wednesday agreed to have a new two-stage entrance test formula proposed by the IIT's following opposition from some of the premier institutes to the single entrance examination raised by the HRD Minister Kapil Sibal.

The association said that it will wait for the decision of the senates. The statement said "We will follow up with the senates on the question of 20 percentile and 2013 to be the beginning year. We want status quo till 2013 and in the meantime we expect deliberations to meet the diverse objectives of the HRD Ministry, the IIT's and its Stake holders".

So, Again Rejection! From Alumni section. Will this decision go for further arguments. Will Alumni of IIT Delhi succeed in rejecting the format of HRD Minister Kapil Sibal? What Next?? Keep Visiting for more updates on IIT JEE 2013 and related to it.
