While the state government plans to have a single all-India engineering entrance exam from 2013; it is yet to decide on the weightage to be given to Class XII scores during the admission process. Minister for higher and technical education Rajesh Tope on Monday 9th April said a study group will be formed this week to finalize the weightage formula in two weeks. The state plans to introduce the Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test (ISEET), which will be common across the country, for all engineering stream admissions from 2013, said Tope while replying to a calling attention motion rose in the legislative council by Shiv Senas Deepak Sawant.
The ISEET score will be applicable for admissions to the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), the National Institute of Technology (NIT), state engineering and technical colleges and technical universities. Tope also announced that the state government will insist on ISEET being conducted in Marathi too. The Centre has proposed to conduct the exam in English, Hindi and Urdu. The state had, on March 30, organized a stake holder’s meet to seek their opinion on the single-exam pattern and the weightage formula. Of the nearly 500 participants, most were of the opinion that 50% weightage be given to Class XII marks and 50% to ISEET score. The government seems to favour this line of thinking. Meanwhile, Sawant complained that Class XII books of the new science and math’s syllabi for the coming academic year (2012-13) are yet to be made available. Tope said books for five of the six subjects were already available in the market. Books for Chemistry-Part II will be available before May, he said. Lokbharati Party member Kapil Patil demanded that the syllabi of Class IX and Class X should be upgraded to improve preparedness of students from the State Secondary Certificate (SSC) board for the change in pattern. Tope said the school education department has already initiated steps in this regard.
