IIT-B senate meet on entrance test put off

The special senate meet of Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay (IIT-B ) to discuss the compromise formula on the common entrance test might be postponed till after mid-July or even the end of this month. The meeting, which was to be held on Thursday, had to be postponed as the minutes of the June 27 IIT council meeting were not out yet. The institute’s faculty members might recommend relaxing cut-offs for board scores for the 2013 examination in the senate meet. The IIT-Madras senate agreed to the compromise formula at a meeting held earlier this week, setting a positive tone for all IITs, said faculty members.

IIT-B senate meet on entrance test put off

While IIT-B director Devang Khakhar said it was a good sign, a professor said: The institute met on the basis of the discussions that happened in the Joint Admissions Board (JAB) meeting held last month. He added that the meeting at IIT-B might be postponed till the end of the month as the director was not available for the next ten days. Besides, after mid-July, the institute could remain busy with admission-related work. Khakhar added that the minutes would have to be read thoroughly before the meeting. As we cannot have a senate meeting based on media reports, we will have to wait till the minutes are made public. Decisions taken in the council meeting should be documented, said a senior faculty member of the institute.

The faculty member said the senate would discuss issues concerning the number of students for JEE-Advanced. We have been asking for a figure of 50,000 candidates for the advanced test as we want to have a subjective format for the question paper. It will be difficult to conduct a subjective test with 1.5 lakh candidates, he added. The IIT-B faculty members would also suggest relaxing cut-offs for board scores, at least for the 2013 exam. It is not possible to make too many changes in the compromise formula now as it has been accepted in principle. However, we will try to put forth these two suggestions in the senate meeting, said a faculty member.
