NITs: 40% weightage to board exams

With the `one nation, one test' proposal still a distant dream, the National Institutes of Technology (NITs) on Wednesday, 4th July, 2012 resolved to give 40% weightage to class XII/ 12th board exam results for entrance to their undergraduate programme from the next academic session. Aspirants for the central engineering institutes will appear for one exam that will have 60% weightage. Students seeking admission to these institutes would not have to appear for the advance test as had been proposed earlier.

NITs: 40% weightage to board exams

"The formula worked out is very simple 40 percent weightage to board results and 60% to the mains," R. A. Malshekar, chairman of the standing committee of NITs, said after a meeting chaired by HRD minister Kapil Sibal. He said the 40% weightage to the board results will be given after the process of normalization of marks of the state board. A committee, including NIT directors, CBSE chairman and other experts, will look into the issues relating to normalization of class XII Board marks on percentile basis. Officials said the committee would look into validation of the formulae proposed for normalization of marks with the respective board results.

The meeting was held a week after IITs decided that they will conduct their own test for admission to undergraduate programmes using the board exams only as a cut-off. Only the top 20 percentile of each board will be eligible for admission to IITs. According to the new formula, decided at a meeting of the IIT Council, all aspirants will give the JEE-Main exam. Of the approximately 12 lakh candidates, only the top 1.5 lakh will be qualified to appear for the JEE-Advanced test. The two tests will be held on separate days within four-six weeks of each other.
