IIT JEE new pattern: Student from rural areas to suffer

New Delhi, Wed, 30 May 2012 NI Wire

As government has decided to implement a new pattern for the IIT-JEE for admission in the Indian Institutes of Technology the dissent over this new pattern seems to be growing. As per some, this changed pattern will make admission of the students from rural background difficult. Even the teachers and alumni of the IITs are not happy with this changed pattern and as per reports, some are even contemplating to approach the courts. According to sources, as many as five out of seven senates of the IITs had opposed this idea but the government decided to go ahead with the plan.

As per new format of IIT JEE, there will be a single engineering entrance test for the IITs, National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) and other Central Educational Institutions. This new format will merge the IIT-JEE and AIEEE into one.

After implementation of new formats the exam will have two papers, 'main' and the advance entrance. The final marks will be calculated by taking into account marks obtained in these two exams, along with a fixed "weightage", from the marks obtained in the school board exam. As score vary from board to board hence the marks will be normalized. Those opposing the changed format say the formula for normalization of marks is faulty.
