“ a compromise formula which includes a proposal to take top 20% students based on percentile ranking of respective boards for preparing the merit list”

How meaningless is this solution ?. Higher education in India will become the domain of the school toppers and Children of affluent parents and we wonder why half a million students leave India to study undergraduate courses overseas. Children who will never return to a country that shunned them.

Is this is what we call inclusive in RTE ?.

God Save India

Inclusive education does not mean that everyone must enter, or pass out from, an IIT. It only means that if you wanted to, you could have a shot at it. The child labourer is excluded because she can never dream of entering an IIT; she may absolutely hate IIT, but not trying to join an IIT should be her decision. Even if there is only one IIT train, every child must have access to the platform where the train comes. Of course, not everyone will get on to the train but everyone knows what to do to have a shot at the train. This is called inclusion in education. Everyone must go to school till class 12; those who work hard, and are willing to work harder still, will join an IIT. Others will, by choice, decide not to work that hard and become economists.

All children are born equal and mindless politicians are trying to grade the children and youth of the nation and create a new Brahamanical Caste system in Education, which is pandering to the neo rich who can afford to send their children to elite private schools and Coaching schools.

52 - Why The Government Wants AIEEE & IITJEE Merge - Career Mitra

Mar 20th, 2012 | Posted by Srikanth |

They were different and each has it’s own significance, AIEEE was for entrance to several engineering colleges for B.Tech / B.E or B.Arch courses including IIITs & NITs while JEE was meant for admissions in IITs for B.Tech and Integrated M.Tech courses. There won’t be AIEEE or IITJEE from 2013 instead a common engineering entrance test ISEET will take over.

Just cannot pen down what made the government to take such a decision, students are over stressed by multiple exams is what the Government says. So by reducing one exam will it make any change, students have to still take several exams namely BITSAT, VITEEE and State level common entrance tests. Perhaps all these tests will lead to ISEET probably from 2014 but I am not sure if every state agrees to participate in a common entrance test with different boards teaching different curriculum.

So we just want to ask you are you comfortable giving AIEEE & IITJEE or you want ISEET. The point I am trying to make is that if your JEE wasn’t that great you can still hope for AIEEE but with ISEET replacing these two probably your fate is decided based on one entrance test.
