The Joint Entrance Examination (Advanced) 2015 [JEE (Advanced) 2015] will be conducted by the seven zonal Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) under the guidance of the Joint Admission Board (JAB) 2015. The performance of a candidate in this examination will form the basis for admission to the Bachelor’s, Integrated Master’s and Dual Degree programs (entry at the 10+2 level) in the sixteen IITs and the Indian School of Mines (ISM). The decisions of the JAB 2015 will be final in all matters related to JEE (Advanced) 2015 and admission to IITs and ISM.
The Ministry of Human Resource Development has ratified new criteria for admission to the Indian Institute of Technologies (IITs), paving the way for participation of more students in counselling from next year. Until now, students in the top 20 percentile of Class XII marks alone were eligible for entry into IITs. As a result, those who scored well in the Joint Entrance Examination, but failed to make it to the top 20 percentile were denied admission. Under the new rules, those who have scored 75 per cent marks in Class XII will also be eligible.
The ministry must mandate that all deemed universities should also adopt the JEE–Main for their admission to avoid multiplicity of entrance exams and instead consider national testing facility. The Ministry of Human Resources Development has ratified new criteria for admission to the Indian Institute of Technologies (IITs), paving the way for participation of more students in counselling from next year.
Candidates in the General/Other Backward Class/Non Creamy Layer category who have secured 75 per cent and students under the SC/ST/disabled category with 70 per cent score will benefit from the change. Last year 200 students with top scores could not make it to the premier institutions.
