IIT Delhi accepts common entrance test based on percentile ranking

The Indian Institute of Technology – Delhi (IIT-D) accepted the common entrance test based on Friday, August 02, 2012. The HRD ministry proposed a common entrance test on June 27, 2012 for admission to the undergraduate programs offered at the IITs for 2013. IIT Delhi was the fourth IIT after Madras, Bombay and Kanpur to accept the new format with some recommendations. IIT-D accepted the new format based on percentile ranking and continue with the current eligibility criteria for candidates who cleared their Board exam this year.

The IIT Delhi Senate met in Delhi to discuss the IIT Council’s June 27, 2012 decision and adopted the new formula and recommended a few changes. The senate stated that a student has to either be among the top 20 percentile or score a minimum of 60% in the board examination. It further suggested that the syllabus of the main and the advance test under the new two- tier format should be the same.

A senior official from IIT – Delhi revealed that a large number of senators felt that there should be no change in the exam format, but since other IITs have accepted the new format even they decided to do so.

IIT-Delhi also suggested that for 2014 onwards, a committee should be set up that will look into the entire process of admissions and give recommendations to the Joint Admission Board of the IITs. Two representatives from each IIT senate will be a part of this committee which will analyze statistics and data and help come up with a better system.
