"No clarity on JEE pattern in 2014"

Thousands of IIT aspirants in India are seemingly in a critical situation over JEE entrance exams, which is scheduled in April/May, 2014.

According to the reports, the IIT Council, which is the governing body of all the IITs, has not yet confirmed whether or not “top-20 percentile rule” will be applicable for admissions to IITs. Similar is the situation with NITs, which are being criticized by students for its policy of deciding final ranks in JEE (main) on accounts of XII board.

Both the norms have been severely criticized by students and their parents across the country. A number of cases have been filed against these two controversial norms.

Although the Joint Admission Board of IITs has already discussed the issue on August 25th, there’s no clear confirmation whether or not the new JEE pattern, adopted in 2013, is still applicable.

In its next meeting on September 15th at Kharagpur, Joint Admission Board will again discuss about the controversial “top-20 percentile rule”

It is being believed that proposal to do away with top-20 percentile rule is underway. It will most likely be replaced by a uniform cut-off for all the boards to be eligible for IIT admissions.

In fact, the proposal to increase the number of filtered students from 1.5 lakhs to 2 lakhs in JEE is also on the cards.
