Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) for engineering from 2013!
A Joint Entrance Examination for admission into IITs, Centrally Funded Technical Institutes (CFTIs) like NITs/IIITs and various other Self Financing Institutes is being administered from 2013. The MHRD, IITs, NITs, IIITs and other officials have reached consensus regarding the modalities of a common admission examination process with weightage to performance in the Class XII Board examinations. The proposed changes for the engineering entrance examination will be effective from the year 2013 and both CFTIs and CBSE would work jointly.
Salient Features of JEE
Two-Tier Admission Process
The Joint Entrance Examination for admission to the undergraduate programmes in engineering would be conducted in two parts: JEE-Main and JEE-Advanced. This two tier common test for IITs, NITs and IIITs will replace IIT-JEE and AIEEE from 2013. A composite score calculated from JEE-Main performance and student’s class XII/equivalent marks will be considered for initial screening.
Weightage for class XII board marks
Weightage is being given for the XII board or equivalent marks - though the percentage of weightage varies with the types of Institutes. The board marks will be normalized on percentile basis through an appropriate formula. For the candidates who have given Boards in 2012, special provision is being made by CBSE and State Boards, to appear, if desired, for Boards again in 2013 to improve their performance.
Admission process for IITs from 2013
For initial screening, a composite score is calculated with 40% weightage to class XII Board or equivalent marks and the remaining 60% weightage to JEE Main performance. Based on this composite score, a fixed number of candidates (1,50,000 candidates) are considered eligible for admission. These short-listed candidates would then be ranked in the order of merit based entirely on their performance in the JEE Advanced examination. It is essential for students to figure in the top 20 percentile bracket of their respective Class XII Boards.
Admission process for all other CFTIs like NITs, IIITs, etc from 2013
Candidates aspiring to get into NITs are required to give only JEE Main. There would be 40% weightage for performance in Class XII Board marks normalized on percentile basis through an appropriate formula and 60% weightage for performance in JEE Main.
JEE Test Pattern
Both JEE Main and JEE Advance test will be multiple choice objective type paper. Duration of both the papers will be of 3 hours (180 minutes). Syllabus of both JEE Main and JEE Advance will be same and consist of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.
Joint Administration Board (JAB) for conducting JEE examination
JEE MAIN - An expanded Joint Admission Board (JAB) will be set up for the conduct of JEE MAIN examination. The reconstituted board will include, in an appropriate manner, NITs, other CFTIs and State Government representatives. CBSE will provide the administrative and logistic support.
JEE ADVANCED - For the JEE ADVANCED examination, the JAB of the IIT system would have complete control on matters such as paper setting, evaluation and preparation of the merit list, etc. CBSE would provide the administrative support for conduct of the examination.
