The Senate of IIT Madras deliberated the proposal for the new JEE based on a single exam.
The Senate favoured a single-day entrance exam consisting of a Main test with MCQ questions in Maths, Physics and Chemistry, and an Advanced Quantitative test based on the same subjects. The latter test will have problems with numerical answers, possibly in multiple parts. The answers will be entered by the candidates on a machine-readable form.
The Senate recommended two options as described below for ranking the candidates for admission to the IITs. Of the two, Option 1 is thepreferred option.
The weights recommended by the Senate for the three components, namely, Board percentile rank, Main marks, and Advanced Quantitative marks, are
given in brackets.
A weighted mark obtained from Board percentile rank (0.2) + Main test marks (0.4) + Advanced Quantitative test marks (0.4), will be used for ranking candidates for IIT admission.
