IIT Delhi and IIT Kanpur senates recently wrote to HRD ministry asking to consider their suggestions regarding the replacement of the entrance test. IIT Madras Faculty Association has conveyed similar views to other IITs. Not only have the IITs doubted the early and hurried decision of replacement of IIT-JEE but also the format of the new exam ISEET.
The IITs welcome the decision of bringing reforms in the current entrance exam but they want a say in the process of implementation of ISEET.
The government has proposed to change the IIT-JEE format by introducing two-part objective-type tests and giving weightage to Class XII marks.
The Ministry plans to hold ISEET from 2013 which will replace the existing IIT-JEE and the All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE). This would serve as a single national entrance exam for admission to engineering and science courses in institutes such as the 15 IITs, 30 NITs and other prestigious technical institutes.
