With faculty members from across several Indian Institutes of Technology trashing the T. Ramasami report, either partially or in toto, the seven older tech schools have set up sub-committees to rework the admission criteria for engineering aspirants. At IIT-Bombay, dean of academic programmes Shiv Prasad heads the team that is discussing the various models for Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) new avatar. Our committee will give its report by the end of this month, following which it will be placed in the senate for approval, said IIT-B director Devang Khakhar.
At IIT-Guwahati, the senate will meet on Wednesday, 25th April, 2012 to thrash out the issue. By mid-May, there will be clarity on what the format of the new all-India entrance exam for engineering would be; for that is when the IIT council meets. Each IIT has formed a committee as the minister has said he is ready to look at inputs that each IIT has, said IIT-Guwahati director Gautam Barua. Faculty at most IITs had raised concerns about the manner in which class XII scores of various boards would be normalized. Most IIT faculty felt that a fair normalization of class XII scores for students was not possible as all Indian students who went to high school were not on the same page. Professors, mostly at IIT-B, IIT-Delhi and IIT-Kanpur, argued that class XII exams were not completely free of malpractices and the quality of teaching varied across boards. Whether class XII scores will be added to the overall JEE score or whether they will be considered merely for filtering students who can join the IITs is something only time will tell. But the importance of class XII scores cannot be and will not be undermined, said an IIT director.
