64% Drop In JEE Advanced Qualifiers, MHRD Steps In
MHRD, late last night, directed IIT Kanpur to release new cut off and merit list for JEE Advanced 2018.
NEW DELHI: IIT Kanpur may soon release new cut off and merit list for JEE Advanced 2018.Against the existing rule wherein the number of candidates in the merit list should be twice the number of seats on offer, this year the number of candidates in the merit list is only 1.6 times the number of seats on offer. MHRD issued directions late last night to IIT Kanpur to release a supplementary merit list.
The direction has been given in order to not compromise with the government’s policy and that all reserved category seats are filled.
HRD Minister, Prakash Javadekar also tweeted that it will be made sure that none of the reservation seats go vacant.
The eligibility criteria for JEE Advanced, which was IIT-JEE up until 2012, was revised in 2013 and since then the number of candidates who qualified the exam has alwasy been twice the number of seats available. The number of candidates making it to the merit list is the lowest since 2012.
The government wants the Indian Institutes of Technology to bring down the difficulty levels of the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE)-Advanced so that seats don’t go vacant, unlike this year when the cut-off had to be reduced after it appeared that about 1,000 seats may not get filled up.
Directive from MHRD, another meeting will be held today. The Joint Admission Board or JAB will have to take a call before registration for online counselling and choice-filling begins this week.
