Maharashtra to assign 50% weightage to class XII marks for JEE exam

Maharashtra has decided to assign 50% weightage to class XII marks for admission to engineering colleges through JEE. The state has also decided to join JEE ( Joint Entrance Exam ) from 2014 – 15.

This indicates that the students taking Class XII exam in 2014 will have to appear for JEE 2014.

The JEE will have two parts – JEE – Mains for all the candidates seeking admission to engineering colleges and JEE – Advance for those aspiring to enter into IITs. The state announced that Class XII marks irrespective of the board will be normalized using a formula devised by Indian Statistical Institute.

State will prepare merit rankings by assigning 50% weightage to JEE – Main and Class XII marks in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. Some students were worried that their ranking would have come down if the state would have considered other subjects also.

The state government has also decided to revamp its Class XII syllabus from 2013 to bring it into line with JEE. The state board had upgraded its syllabus this year only to come at par with the CBSE syllabus. The new decision would mean that a new curriculum will be introduced before the recent one could take shape.

{tab=AICTE Approved JEE Scores}

Maharashtra to admit students on JEE scores ; AICTE approved colleges to accept JEE scores

With the Maharashtra state accepting JEE scores, HRD Minister’s ‘one nation one exam’ dream seems to come true. The state decided on 11th September, 2012 to accept the common entrance test scores along with the Class XII marks of maths, physics and chemistry. The country’s supreme regulating body of all technical colleges, AICTE ( All India Council for Technical Education ) also decided in its governing council meeting to allow all its affiliate colleges to accept JEE scores for providing admission to technical courses.

Till now Indian students were burdened with the stress of taking multiple entrance exams. On an average, an engineering applicant used to take about 15 entrance tests. It was both a mental as well as a financial burden on them as the test fee for taking an exam varied from ₹ 1500 to ₹ 2500.

But from next year, 134 entrance exams will unite to one. Country will have only one JEE  ( Joint Entrance Exam ) for admission to technical colleges whether in Salem or Srinagar, in Agartala or Azamgarh. Class XII marks will also carry weightage.

JEE 2013 scores will be used for admission to all centrally funded institutes such as NITs, IITs, IIITs, IISER, IISc ( Bangalore ), NERIST ( Itanagar ) and IIEST ( Shibpur ). State level engineering colleges can also use the JEE scores to admit students.

Tiruchi likely to be retained as centre for JEE Exams this year

Thanks to the Union Human Resource Development Ministry’s ‘one nation – one test’ Principle, the student community in Tiruchi region has reason to feel relieved that the admission into National Institutes of Technology will henceforth be based on performance in IIT – Mains, hitherto All India Engineering Entrance Examination ( AIEEE ).

Till last year, students from the central region had to travel to Chennai, Madurai, or Coimbatore to appear for the examination, despite the location of National Institute of Technology in Tiruchi. Interestingly, NIT – T was one of the two centres for conduct of the IIT – JEE while E.R.Higher Secondary School was the other centre.

With the Union Human Resource Development Ministry issuing a notification for conduct of JEE 2013 in two parts : JEE Mains and JEE Advance, what looks obvious much to the relief of the student community is that Tiruchi will be retained as a centre for conduct of these examinations.

For, according to the notification, IITs will have a major say in the JEE Apex Board ( JAB ) formed for conduct of JEE Mains and Advance. While the JEE  Mains will be conducted by CBSE, which used to conduct the AIEEE, the JEE Advance examination will be the domain of Joint Admission Board of IITs.

There appears to be a high probability for Tiruchi being considered a centre for the conduct of JEE Mains and Advance, said G.Swaminathan, Registrar, NIT – T.

On its part, the NIT – T has already conveyed to the authorities concerned the necessity to make Tiruchi an examination centre, considering its status as an education hub. According to parents, the concentration levels of students take a beating when they sit for examination after a tiring journey, since identifying the specified examination centre in a large city is a task in itself. Minor difference in the score reflects in a huge gap in national – level ranking, parents reason out.

The steady increase in the number of CBSE schools in the central region of Tamil Nadu is a ready indicator of the ever – rising numbers of students appearing for the national engineering entrance examinations every year.

The awareness initiatives carried out by student groups of NIT – T about the entrance examination through conduct of mock tests in southern districts has also contributed to the increase in the number of applicants.

Throughout the country, 15 lakh students are expected to appear for JEE Mains on 7th April, 2013, and 1.5 lakh students for JEE Advance on 2nd June, 2013, according to official information. About six lakh IIT aspirants took up IIT – JEE 2012.

The number is much less in the second stage since only those in the top 20 percentile of the respective boards will be eligible to appear for the JEE Advance, after the screening test : JEE Mains.

{tab=JEE Offline, Online Exam 2013}

JEE Offline, Online Exam 2013

The new JEE ( Joint Entrance Exam ) Mains for admission to engineering courses will be held in offline and online modes in April next year. JEE – Mains offline exam will be conducted on 7th April, 2013 and online mode thereafter in the same month.

The AIEEE ( All India Engineering Entrance Exam ) which has been replaced by JEE – Mains is mostly conducted on fourth Sunday of April so that Class XII students get ample time to prepare for the test after their board exam. But next year, state board and CBSE students will get only one week to prepare for the exam.

Some state board students argued that it is not fair on their part as the common test was declared very late and they follow a different syllabus.

While state – board affiliated schools held a different opinion. They expressed that deferring the test by 20 days will not make much difference. Instead state board syllabus should be aligned to the CBSE syllabus as some other states have done. This will be more beneficial.

CBSE schools expressed that the board follows the same syllabus so students will only have to prepare on answering analytical questions. Moreover they will be mentally prepared for the JEE – Mains as the exam will fall just a week after their board exams.

Paper 2 of JEE – Mains exam for BArch and BPlanning candidates will also be conducted on 7th April, 2013. It will be a paper – pencil based test. 40% weightage will be given to Class XII board marks and 60% to JEE – Mains scores while preparing the final merit list for admission to IIITs, NITs, DTU and other centrally funded technical institutes.

The JEE – Mains will be an objective type paper of 3 hours duration. It will comprise of questions on mathematics, physics and chemistry. Paper 2 of JEE Mains for Bplanning / BArch aspirants for admission to IIITs, NITs, DTU, Delhi and other centrally funded technical institutes will check candidate’s aptitude, mathematical and drawing skills.

A total of 1.5 lakh candidates will be shortlisted from JEE – Mains and will be eligible to take JEE – Advanced test for admission to IITs, ISM – Dhanbad and IT – BHU. JEE – Advanced for admission to IITs will be conducted in early June next year.

IIT Joint Entrance Board approves common entrance test ( CET ) for UG Courses 2013.

The IIT Joint Admission Board ( JAB ), comprising heads of the top engineering institutes, today approved the common entrance test for admission to the UG program for 2013 based on percentile ranking.

IIT JEE 2013 Pune aspirants are in dilemma

XII Standard, Pune students who will be appearing IIT JEE 2013 are in a quandary as their study plans fall into disarray.

The disgusting part is that the relative weightage for Class XII board exam and the proposed national Joint Entrance Exam ( JEE ) scores for admissions are yet to be decided by the state govt which is a big problem.

Still the syllabus is not clear for the proposed format. The ministry’s plans have run into opposition in some IITs which has increased the uncertainty.

The HRD ministry has declared that the institutions like the IITs, IIITs, NITs and central universities, there would be 40% weightage for performance in standard XII board marks normalized on percentile basis through an appropriate formula.

Another 30% weightage will be for performance in the JEE – Main and 30% weightage in JEE – Advanced. A combined merit will be decided accordingly.
