PRAKASHJAVADEKAR

IIT – (Professor Assisted Learning) PAL designed to help the students in preparing for the JEE Advanced Exam will be made available along with hand-holding support through the SWAYAM portal. The decision was taken at the 52nd IIT council meet here on Monday. “The decision is taken to help the students who have to surrender to the coaching institutes for cracking the JEE (Advanced),” said Prakash Javadekar, Human Resource Development Minister.

He added, IIT-PAL programme now has over 600 lectures on four subjects Maths, Physics, Chemistry.

Meanwhile, another decision taken was that IITs would now mentor atleast five engineering colleges and five schools were they will upskill the teachers there and would also interact with the students. “ IITs have decided to increase the cooperation with National Laboratories working in various fields so that the real research programs can be taken up to improve the quality of research”, said Javadekar.

There will be no revision in tuition fee being charged from the undergraduate students in IITs. Also, Council did not consider any further changes in the JEE (Advanced) system.

IITs to continue BTech programmes; no changes in JEE (Advanced)

NEW DELHI: The Council of IITs rejected the proposal to set up an expert committee to suggest measures for reforms in the JEE (advanced) process. It also rejected the proposal for “allocation of only to an institute” instead of the present practice of allocation of only to an institute” instead of the present practice of allocation of branch of engineering during the centralised undergraduate counselling/ admission on Monday. Among the major decisions taken in the 52nd Council meeting is to empower the IITs to individually decide the fee structure for foreign students, no fee hike for undergraduate studies at the IITs and, as first reported by TOI, “joint effort for recruitment of foreign faculty in the IIT system.”  “There will be no revision in tuition fee charged from undergraduate students in IITs.  The council did not consider any changes in the JEE (Advanced),” Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar told PTI here. “The IIT Pal designed to help students in preparing for JEE would be further extended and would be made available with hand holding support from SWAYAM,” he added.

With regards to the JEE (Advanced) there was a proposal to set up an expert committee to address the concerns of  dependence on the coaching centres and “to develop a robust and scientifically designed entrance exam system to test the potential candidates…” The another proposal that “instead of making allocation of  branch, there should be allocation if only to an institute, based on their preference and merit at the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) level.”

“The Council decided that there is no need for a separate committee. We are improving the exams and the Joint Admission Board is doing the reforms. Last year only the exam went completely online. On the matter of allocation of institute instead of branch during JoSAA counselling, many IITs didn’t feel it’s a good idea,” said Bhaskar Ramamurthy, director, IIT-Madras.

Govt proposes panel for JEE (Advanced) reforms, headed by IIT-Madras director

The government has proposed to set up a five-member committee, headed by IIT-Madras director, to suggest changes to the JEE (Advanced) in the wake of an inadequate number of candidates qualifying the entrance test this year.

Abhay Karandikar, director of IIT-Kanpur, Vineet Joshi, director general of National Testing Agency, and Professor Kannan Moudgalya of IIT-Bombay are tipped to be the other members of the proposal panel. The proposal is on the agenda of the IIT Council, the highest decision-making body of all the IITs, which is scheduled to meet on August 21.

This year, the first merit list for JEE (Advanced) had 18,138 candidates, which was only 1.6 times the total seats. On June 11, The Indian Express had reported that since 2013, when IIT-JEE was renamed JEE-Advanced and the eligibility criteria for the entrance test was tweaked, the number of candidates who qualified had always been at least twice the number of seats on offer. Hence, the merit list of 18,138 students was the smallest pool of qualified candidates since 2012.

This forced the HRD Ministry to step in last-minute and order IIT Kanpur, the organising institute for JEE-Advanced this year, to release “a list of candidates, twice the number of seats in each discipline and category, strictly as per merit, prior to starting the choice filling through JoSAA”.

Subsequently, IIT Kanpur added another 8,954 general candidates, 3,824 OBC candidates, 771 SCs and 293 from ST category to the merit list, taking the total up to 31,980 candidates. This was unprecedented. To avoid such embarrassment in future, the government has proposed to set up a five-member member panel with the director of IIT-Madras as chairman to “develop a robust and scientifically designed entrance exam system to test the potential of the candidates as well as to reduce their dependence on coaching institutes”.

In addition, the IIT-Council is expected to discuss a suggestion made by one of the 23 premier engineering schools that the students who qualify JEE (Advanced) should be allocated an institute and not the engineering branch. According to the suggestion, the student should be allocated an engineering branch only in the second year, based on the aptitude exhibited in the first year.

“The above suggestion has the advantage of reducing pressure on the ranks in the JEE-Advanced examinations and would ensure that students take their first-year course seriously,” states the agenda of the Council meeting.

To reform JEE (Advanced) exam, HRD Ministry proposes panel headed by IIT-Madras director

The Human Resource and Development ministry has proposed to set up a five-member panel to suggest changes to the JEE (Advanced) examination. The move comes after an insufficient number of applicants had qualified the entrance test this year. According to a report by The Indian Express, Abhay Karandikar, Director of IIT-Kanpur, Vineet Joshi, Director General of National Testing Agency, and Professor Kannan Moudgalya of IIT-Bombay are likely to be the other member of the committee. The proposal to suggest changes in the examination syllabus will be decided by the IIT Council, which is considered to be the top decision-making body of all the IITs. The IIT Council is scheduled to meet on August 21, 2018.

A total of 18,138 candidates had qualified the JEE 2018 (Advanced) test this year. On June 11, in a report, The Indian Express had mentioned that since 2013, when IIT-JEE was renamed as JEE (Advanced), the number of qualified candidates was always twice the number of seats. Therefore, the final merit list of 2018 (18,138 candidates) was the least since 2012. In the last moment, the HRD ministry had ordered IIT Kanpur (as 2018 JEE-Advanced exam was organized by it) to publish another list of candidates having twice the number of seats in each discipline and category.

Afterwards, IIT Kanpur released a list of around 13,842 candidates (8,954 general candidates, 3,824 OBC candidates, 771 SCs and 293 from ST category ) taking the total to 31,980 candidates. Hence, in a bid to avoid the similar awkwardness in near future, the panel will consider and develop a “robust and scientifically designed entrance exam system to test the potential of the candidates as well as to reduce their dependence on coaching institutes”.

Apart from this, the IIT-Council is likely to discuss a recommendation made by one of the 23 premier engineering schools that the candidates who qualify JEE (Advanced) exam should be offered an institute instead of an engineering college in the first year. As per the recommendation, the student should be offered an engineering branch from the second year. “The above suggestion has the advantage of reducing pressure on the ranks in the JEE-Advanced examinations and would ensure that students take their first-year course seriously,” reports IE.

Hyderabad: Student writes to PM on neet woe

Hyderabad: An annoyed NEET aspirant who scored 400-480 out of 720 in NEET-2018 has written an open letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi explaining the hardships aspirants faced due to the NEET examination.

According to the aspirant, the main aim of the NEET was to ease mental and financial burden on medical aspirants and to prevent malpractices like capitation fees and to ensure merit remained the sole criterion for admissions. But none of these were followed alleged the aspirant.

Students who could not even make it to 150 out of 720 in the entrance were getting seats in private medical colleges and even in deemed universities across the country. Meritorious students, on the other hand, were losing government seats even due to one mark and were being forced to join private medical colleges.

“Students who are not deserving are getting admission with the power of money and what kind of doctors will they become in future? If they are not able to pay it, will their child end up sitting at home? There are numerous students like us who secured good marks in NEET, but are yet to get a seat in government medical colleges. Seats are a handful and aspirants are 13 to 14 lakh,” he said in the letter.
