new JEE might cause students move to easier board exam states
With this wide variation in the difficulty to get into the top 20 percentile in the various states of the country, experts are contemplating students migrating to states with easier 12th board exam.
“It is another distortion whose impact we will see in the coming years. Let’s say in UP if the overall quality is lower than other States, then the students in the top 20 percentile cut-off will much weaker. It is like a State-level discount for entering the IIT, this might create a situation where students who can afford to migrate to a different state will move to that state for lower-cutoffs in board examination” Says S.V Divvaakar,Ace Global Consulting and an alumnus of IIT Delhi talking about the same.
