Merging of IITJEE and AIEEE

At a press conference organised by FIITJEE at ITC Sonar Kolkata, concerns were raised on the ministry of human resource development's proposal to merge the IITJEE and AIEEE along with an inclusion of marks from the board examinations. R. L. Trikha, director and HOD, distance education, FIITJEE Limited and C. V. Kalyan Kumar, director, FIITJEE Limited were part of the discussion on 'Change of assessing students in school, based on CCE and the current proposal of merging all National Engineering Exams-IITJEE & AIEEE with inclusion of Boards Exams. Is it a boon or a burden?"

The decision to merge IITJEE and AIEEE along with 40 per cent weight-age to the class XII marks has faced a lot of flak from the academic community. Kumar said, "What ails education in India can be changed by bringing reforms in curriculum, teacher training and delivery of education, not by changing the testing pattern. The selection process could have been based entirely on board exams but they are aware of the fact that it cannot test analytical ability or differentiate between toppers and mediocre students."

The speakers observed that there will be no change in the number of seats due to the merger. Roughly 6.8 to 7 lakh appear for board examinations and 5 lakh pass but at the IITs, for the 4.75 lakh who appear, roughly 10,000 are chosen. The seats at NIITs number at 15,000 to 20,000. "The government should create infrastructure. All the students should be brought to the same level before testing them on a common platform," said Trikha.

On the advantages of the proposed system, Trikha commented, "Coaching institutes like those in Kota which do not allow children to attend school will disappear as students will be compelled to attend school and there will just be one exam to prepare for with three components- boards, aptitude test and advanced subject knowledge." However, there are downsides to the proposed system. "With just one exam, there will be no back-up for the student. Also, there are so many state boards in the country apart from CBSE and CISCE, it will be difficult to find common ground between these boards," said Kumar.
