Scores across the boards cannot be compared say experts, T.Ramasami commission ignored experts suggestions
What experts suggested:
1. Indian Statistical Institute experts caution against comparing class XII exam performances across different boards
2. They concluded “lack of compatibility of scores from different boards across the country”
3. The experts revised report in 2011 suggested percentile ranks as best way to compare scores
4. But they recommended that their analysis be carried out for all of India’s 29 school boards. Over a longer period of time.
But T.Ramasami commission ignored these suggestions and went ahead with a proposal to give 40 percent weightage to the 12th board scores. A 50% weightage is still suggested to be given to 12th board scores for admission into NIT’s and other engineering colleges joining the new Joint Entrance Exam.
