Coaching centers to cash in on new IITJEE format

Published On: 05 Jul 2012

 | Last Updated On: 28 Aug 2012

The MHRD (Ministry of Human Resource Development) proposed the new format for admission to centrally funded institutes including IITs, NITs and IIITs to discourage students’ dependence on coaching centers for cracking competitive exams and give equal importance to class XII board exams. However, the idea has finally proved to be exactly the opposite of what it aimed at.

Coaching centers have revealed that with the introduction of new format of JEE in 2013 which will give weightage to class XII board marks for giving admission to it’s the demand of programs offered by the coaching institutes has gone up. Infact the number of admissions this year has increased to twofold in some cases.

For the 2014 IIT entrance exams, about 1200 students have enrolled to Rao IIT Academy this year against the 575 admissions done last year. Moreover, the difficulty level of the exam will increase as CBSE will set the JEE Main paper. Parents and students have realized that getting an admission to reputed engineering institutes will not be an easy task without proper coaching.

Sources from FIITJEE revealed that the number of applicants this year is expected to rise. Since the institute registered many top rankers this year, is expecting a definite increase in number of students taking admissions which will go on till October.

The MHRD had been insisting to discourage coaching culture so that students can pay equal attention to the school classes which is presently ignored due to a rat race to crack the competitive exams.  However, a committee headed by a professor of IIT-Madras studied a correlation between IIT performance and school performance and inferred that students performed better in schools.

Last week IITs adopted the new JEE format from 2013 which will be conducted in 2 parts – JEE – Main and Advanced. Students seeking admission to IITs will only be required to appear for JEE Main test. Only top 1.5 lakh students would be shortlisted from JEE-Main test to take the JEE-Advanced which will held few weeks later than the Main exam.

The new format combines both AIEEE (All India Engineering Entrance Examination) and IITJEE. JEE-Main will be on similar lines of AIEEE while JEE-Advanced will be equivalent to IITJEE.

Eligibility cap of top 20 percentile in respective class XII board exam will be applicable to students for final admission to IITs based on their JEE-Advanced score. Presently, candidates scoring 60% in class XII board exams are eligible to take the IITJEE exam. The country has 32 boards following different pattern of exam and evaluation system.

CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) will conduct the JEE-Main exam while JEE-Advanced will be conducted by the IITs. Students seeking admission to NITs and IIITs will be required to take the JEE-Main exam only.

JEE-Main scores can be used by many deemed universities also to provide admissions after they decide a minimum percentage criteria.

Sources from IITians Pace revealed that this year about 13000 students are taking their entrance exam for the integrated course as compared to 6000 students of 2011. Last year the institute admitted only 1500 students but is planning to take 2500 students this year. Sources explained that more AIEEE aspirants will be taking JEE-Advanced as 30% weightage is assigned to JEE-Advanced for admission to non IITs.

Kota based Career Point Infosystems revealed that nearly 25% of students who had opted for IITJEE coaching module have switched to AIEEE coaching. Students who feel that they will not be able to grab a spot in top 20 percentile have decided to opt out of IITJEE coaching and enrolled for AIEEE coaching rather. The fee for IITJEE and AIEEE coaching package of the institute is Rs 80,000 and Rs 40,000 respectively.
