IIT tweaks JEE norms to also allow those with 75% in Class XII

Providing relief to those seeking admission to the Indian Institutes of Technology, the IIT Council has decided to change eligibility norms to include students who secure 75 per cent marks and above in their Class 12 board exams. Currently, only those who are in the top-20 percentile are eligible for admission, provided they clear the JEE Main and JEE Advanced exams.

 

“In addition to the top-20 percentile condition, we decided to include the marks secured in the board exams,” confirmed HRD Secretary Ashok Thakur. 


The decision was taken at the IIT Council meeting held in Chennai on Monday, chaired by HRD Minister Smriti Irani.


As per the new rule, OBC and general category candidates should either be in the top-20 percentile or secure at least 75 per cent marks — whichever is lower — in their Class 12 board exams. Those belonging to SC, ST and disabled sections should secure at least 70 per cent marks.


Meanwhile, a committee under the chairmanship of Secretary, Higher Education, has been set up to resolve the stand-off with the UGC over the IITs’ course structure. 


The heads of the IITs in Chennai and Kanpur have also been given the responsibility of preparing a framework for a new India-centric ranking system for institutions of higher learning.
