Do you think JEE Main and JEE Advanced should be merged?
Admission to NITs should be only through JEE Main (not board marks)?
JEE Advanced should not require students to qualify JEE Main; i.e. it should be a separate exam.
As per latest news:
Admissions to the NITs from next year could be based entirely on JEE-Main scores, with a government-appointed panel likely to recommend scrapping of weightage given to marks obtained in board examinations.
“We would be recommending scrapping of weightages given to board marks” Director of IIT Bombay and a member of the panel, Devang Khakhar, has said.
A final decision on the issue could come early next month when HRD Minister Smriti Irani chairs a meeting of the NIT council, which would take a call on the committee’s recommendations.
As per the existing policy, 40 per cent weightage is given to board marks and 60 per cent to the JEE-Main score for admission to a National Institute of Technolgy (NITs).
Official sources said the committee took into account several factors while deciding on its recommendations that included delays witnessed this year in the common counselling for admissions to the IITs and NITs.
