From 2017, the students will be able to take admission to NIT through JEE Advance on the pattern of IIT. But the decision has been converted in to the rule. The consent from the Human Resources Ministry and IIT is pending.
AS per this new Rule, from 2017 the IIT Mains Exam shall be considered only screening and the admission to IIT, NIT, and GFTI shall be given on the basis of rank in JEE Advance followed by JEE Mains.
HRD had constituted two Committees to review the Selection Procedure to the prestigious engineering institutes of the country. Both the committees were agree that the importance to the marks of 10+2 for the admission procedure is not relevant.
They all agreed that this no system has encouraged the mushrooming of the coaching centres in the country. Besides the students are always under pressure from the teachers and the parents for getting more and more marks.
About the Committees -
As we have told you that two committees were constituted for the purpose, the first committee was headed by IIT Director Prof Devang and the second was led by the Director General of Centre for Development of Advance Mr Rajat Moona.
These two committees gave suggestions regarding the improvement in the Selection Procedure. After listening to the suggestions of these two committees, HRD made another panel headed by the Chairman of IIT Roorkee, Mr Ashok Mishra.
Single Common Aptitude Test for Engineering Students
This new panel had submitted a report last year in November in which it had advocated the Single Engineering Entrance Exam. This Aptitude Test for the engineering courses may be held from 2018. All the students wishing to take admission to the prestigious engineering colleges under IIT, NIT, JFTI etc. will have to sit in this Engineering Aptitude Exam.
So guys get ready for a big change !
