Kapil sibal meets IIT Directors on ISEET, meeting ends with no decision
Earlier a meeting was scheduled on 11th April by MHRD Minister Kapil Sibal to discuss the implementation of ISEET for all centrally funded engineering institutions from academic year 2013 , as several IIT senates from old IIT’s such as IIT Delhi, IIT Kanpur and IIT Bombay have expressed serious concerns on the pattern of ISEET or new pattern JEE to be implemented from 2013.
Reportedly the meeting ended with no apparent conclusion while both the parties maintained that MHRD and IIT’s are now on the same page and that the meeting was fruitful and positive, the meeting concluded with action of IIT Directors to discuss the reforms of IIT JEE with their respective senates and revert back to MHRD on the same.
Some of the concerns expressed by IIT senates are:
- Weightage to 12th board examination scores
- Formula for weightage of 12th board scores for ISEET .
- ISEET constituting only objective questions
- Control of IIT’s on the entrance exam
