NITs adopt common entrance for undergrad
187 views

With some tweaking in the proposed format, National Institute of Technology (NITs) on Wednesday, 4th July, 2012 adopted the common entrance for admission to undergraduate programme from 2013 giving 40 per cent weightage to board results and 60 per cent weightage to the main exam for preparing merit list. Students seeking admission to these institutes would not have to appear for the advance test as had been proposed earlier.

NITs adopt common entrance for undergrad

"The formula worked out is very simple, 40 per cent weightage to board results and 60 per cent to the mains," chairman of the standing committee of NITs, R. A. Mashelkar, told PTI here after a meeting chaired by HRD minister Kapil Sibal. He said the 40 per cent weightage to the board results will be given after the process of normalisation of marks of the state board. A committee comprising NIT directors would be set up to look into the issue of normalisation.

Officials said the committee would basically look into validation of the formulae already proposed for normalisation of marks with the respective board results. The meeting comes in wake of the IITs arriving at a compromising formula last week for admission to undergraduate programmes, taking the top 20 percentile of successful candidates of their Boards for preparing merit list and their performance in the advance test.

The government had on 28th May announced the common entrance test for IITs and other centrally funded institutes. Under the new system, for admission to all the centrally funded institutes like the NITs there would be 40 percentage weightage for performance in Class XII (after normalisation of marks), 30 per cent weightage to performance in main and 30 per cent in the advanced test.
