IIT-Bombay To Cut Filter For JEE Advanced Test

IIT-Bombay Seeks Changes In JEE
The IIT Bombay senate on Wednesday approved the 'compromise formula' for admission to the IIT's from 2013, but recommended that JEE Main should filter for JEE Advanced not to 1.5 lakh , but only for 50,000 candidates.

 

Based on the 'comprised formula' that the HRD ministry and the IIT Council agreed to on June 27 said the top 1.5 lakh candidates after JEE Main would sit for JEE Advanced Test, which would be conducted and managed by IIT's. There would be a gap between the two exams, and admission to the IIT's would be based on JEE Advanced ranks-with the condition that all successful candidates must also have figured in the top 20% in their Class 12 board examination.

The senate of IIT Madras recently approved the new format. IIT Kanpur will deliberate upon the new formula on July 28 (Saturday)- a meeting that could be crucial, since the IIT Kanpur senate led the protest against the ministry's original Common Entrance Test Format, and even announced it would hold a separate JEE.

At a special meeting on Wednesday, the IIT-Bombay senate decided that the number of candidates writing the JEE-Advanced must be fewer than 1.5 lakh. IIT Bombay senate member said "We have accepted the June 27 decision of the IIT Council, but have recommended that the number of students who appear for JEE Advanced should be limited to five times the number of seats available across IIT's, and that roughly comes to 45,000 to 50,000".
