IITs to stick to top 20 percentile formula for 2013 admissions

Published On: 06 Aug 2012

 | Last Updated On: 28 Aug 2012

Despite of suggestions proposed by various IITs, the JAB (Joint Admission Board) of IITs is reported to have made no changes to the 20 percentile formula for eligibility criteria or the number of candidates to take up the JEE-Advanced test in 2013. The compromise formula was agreed upon by the IIT Council on June 27, 2012.

Over the last 1 month, different IIT Senates were proposing changes in the eligibility criteria so as to allow the students who have passed Class XII board exams in 2012. IIT-Delhi had proposed to consider both 60% and 20 percentile criteria for 2013 admissions. IIT-Kanpur and Delhi had suggested for students who had passed board exams in 2012, the eligibility criteria should be 60%.

But JAB in a meeting on Sunday, August 5, 2012, decided not to incorporate any of the suggestions. Though there was an intense discussion on the proposals but the board gave nod to the compromise formula agreed on June 23, 2012.

IIT-Delhi had suggested that number of students to be shortlisted for the JEE-Advanced exam should be reduced to 50,000 from the earlier 1.5 lakh. But now JAB has decided to go with the earlier figure of 1.5 lakh students only.

Also the JEE-Advanced exam is reported to follow the syllabus and pattern of IITJEE 2012 exam as last minute changes would confuse the students.  

On June 27, 2012, IIT Council proposed a compromise formula under which a student should be in top 20 percentile bracket of their respective board exam in order to appear for the JEE Advanced exam.

The JEE 2013 will be a 2-tier exam – Main and Advanced. JEE-Main will be a screening test. JEE-Advanced will decide the final rank of a student and will be held 3 weeks after the main exam.
