IITJEE 2013: IIT-Bombay proposes change in the compromise formula, IIT-Kanpur, IIT-Delhi likely to support

Published On: 26 Jul 2012

After a long trailed row over CET (Common Entrance Test) 2013, HRD Ministry and IITs arrived at a compromise formula later last month. The IIT-Bombay Senate again seems to blow on the fire by proposing that it now wants the number of students to be shortlisted for JEE Advanced to be decreased from 1.5 lakh to 50,000. IIT-Kanpur and IIT-Delhi are also expected to support the modification proposed by their counterpart.

As per the compromise formula agreed at the special IIT Council meeting on June 27, 2012, only top 1.5 lakh students from all categories will be shortlisted from JEE Main to take the JEE Advanced. Students will be given admission on the basis of category wise – OBC, general, SC and ST ranks of their performance in JEE Advanced. Also students selected from the JEE Advanced must fall in the top 20 percentile in the appropriate category – OBC, general, SC and ST of their respective class XII board exams.

IIT-Bombay argued that IITs have only 9640 seats. So there is no point in shortlisting over 50, 000 students. With 50,000 students competing in JEE Advanced for 9640 seats the student to seat ratio stands at 10:1. Large number of students competing in JEE Advanced would only add stress to the IIT entrance exam mechanism.

It also argued that IITs have been willing to shift to a subjective type test from the present objective multiple choice based mode of test. While IITs are still to decide whether the subjective type test should be paper-pencil based or online, some of them are not ready to ccept the present form of objective type test. A larger number of students such as 1.5 lakh proposed would make the shift difficult.

The JEE Advanced exam would be entirely looked after by the IITs. Students performance in JEE Advanced would decided their chances of getting into IITs. Under the new formula, students aspiring to get into IITs would only be required to take the JEE Advanced. Admissions to all other centrally funded institutes including NITs, IIITs would be based on JEE Mains. This will also be applicable to all state engineering colleges and deemed universities that are willing to join CET.

Earlier IIT-Madras Senate approved the compromise formula completely. The Senate of IIT-Kanpur is scheduled to meet on July 28, 2012 followed by IIT-Delhi. Both are expected to suggest changes in the compromise formula as IIT-Bombay.
