Board Performance to be Added in Final JEE Ranking of IITs
National Common Exam as a Screening Test from 2014
IITs to Conduct its own Test to Select Candidates Using the Screened List from the National Test
From the comparison and consolidation of the views of the various Senates, the following majority views clearly emerge and should therefore be accepted:
The current practice of admissions to the undergraduate program to the IITs to continue
unchanged for the year 2013.
From 2014 onwards, the National entrance test is to be used as the Screening test for the
purpose of admissions to the undergraduate program to the IITs. From the National
entrance test, a fixed number of candidates (about 50,000) will be chosen who will
become eligible to appear in the advanced test to be conducted by the IITs.
IITs will conduct the advanced tests for the above Screened candidates. Only the
performance in this advanced test will be used to select and admit candidates to the IITs
The details of the IITs advanced test will be finalized in due course of time by discussion
amongst the IITs, so that it can be implemented from the year 2014.
The board performance is NOT to be used for the preparation of the final merit list,
which will be based on only the IIT advanced test.
There is no clear majority view emerging with respect to the issue: whether to use board
marks as cut-off or as part of the initial Screening process. IITs would like to carry out
detailed analyze of the board data in this respect.
