IIT-JEE criteria to be tough from next year

The eligibility criteria of 60 per cent marks in class-XII for appearing in IIT Joint Entrance Examination will be raised from next year to make students pay more attention to the board exam. In a significant move to check the growth of coaching centres, which are thriving on imparting coaching to students for IIT-JEE, the government today decided to change the criteria, so that students' attention will be more focused on the board exam at Class-XII. "The present criteria is that students need to secure 60 per cent at class-XII for appearing in IIT-JEE. This is not acceptable. The minimum marks required for IIT-JEE could be raised up to 80 to 85 per cent," HRD Minister Kapil Sibal told reporters after the meeting of the IIT Council, the apex decision making body for the elite institutes, here. source:PTI
