SC put stay order on petition running in AP high court

On Friday the supreme court issued a stay order for all proceedings related to admissions in Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in the Andhra Pradesh High Court which had directed the premier institute not to fill four seats which were offered to students from the state but were denied on the ground of poor percentile.

High court passed an order to IITs on July 8 after petition filed by candidates for top 20 percentile eligibility criteria. The four students had contended before the high court that the prescribed condition of successful candidates being within “top 20 percentile of successful candidates in class 12th examination conducted by the respective boards in applicable categories” was arbitrary and unreasonable.

The appeal was filed by the organising chairman of Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) (advanced) 2013, IIT Delhi, seeking stay of the interim order contending that the High Court completely ignored the terms and conditions of the JEE.

Senior advocate V Giri and advocate Madhu Smita Bora contended that the high court failed to appreciate that many deserving candidates would get adversely affected as a result of keeping four seats reserved for the respondent students who did not fulfil the minimum eligibility criteria for admission into the IIT.

JEE Main – Admissions will be subject to final verdict of supreme court

Countrywide parents and students are opposing normalisation method used by CBSE this year for calculation of 40% XII board marks. 53 Parents submitted the petition in Supreme Court on tuesday after the petition was deferred by Delhi high court. First hearing in supreme court was scheduled today and is over now:

Current updates after supreme court hearing

1. Petitioners says that ranking system adopted by the Joint Entrance Exam (Main) was not fair and affected many students.

2. The Double bench order says that all admissions are subject to a final disposal of matter by the Supreme Court.

3. Petitioners have major complaint with the normalisation done to the board marks

Short example showing the blunder:

A student scoring 92% in CBSE Boards (getting 96.5%ile will get 0.4*80 = 32 marks out of 144)

A student scoring 96% in CBSE Boards (getting 99.6%ile will get around 0.4*300 = 120 marks out of 144)

A mere difference of 20 marks in boards (which should have ideally contributed 0.4*20 = 8 marks difference in final ranking) gets amplified by a factor of 1100% (120-32 = 88), and thousands of students will lose out in the new system.

4, Supreme Court will wait for the AP High Court judgement and of other High Courts, before hearing next appeal from petitioners.
