Students preparing for Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) 2017 should take note of the changes announced by the Union Ministry of Human Resource. To improvise the system of Joint Entrance Examination (JEE), the committee has recommended to
“Do away with the weightage given to the 12th class examination marks in the JEE(Mains) ranking.”
The officials said that the Minister announced the decision after considering the recommendations on changes in the JEE pattern submitted by a committee set up by the IIT Council.An official stated that“After examining the Ashok Mishra Committee’s report and public feedback, MHRD has decided on a few changes in the JEE pattern for 2017. The present system of allotting 40 percent weightage to Class XII marks for determining ranks in JEE shall be dispensed with.”
Well, this means that class 12 scores will be a crucial parameter for determining the eligibility criteria for the JEE Exam in 2017.
For IIT aspirants to qualify for admission in the IITs – they should have:
- Secured at least 75% marks in the 12th class exam
