Considering the chaos Covid-19 has caused on the academic calendar and education in general, the IITs are considering reducing the JEE syllabus and modifying the exam format for JEE Advanced 2020, scheduled to take place on September 27, 2020.
The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) pannel will discuss reducing the syllabus of the JEE Advanced exam and changing the entrance exam format. This will be discussed in the meeting with the Joint Admission Board (JAB). The meeting is scheduled to take place next week, after which the final decision will be taken.
This year, IIT Delhi is organizing JEE Advanced. IIT Delhi Director V Ramgopal Rao confirmed, "We are considering changing the examination format, Celebs, for discussion in the review meeting next week. The decision will be taken after the permission of JAB.
This year, special attention is being paid to the admission of IITs. This is being done because many boards including CBSE and CISCE have cancelled the remaining board examinations.
At the same time, according to the rules, generally, the rank holder of the general category in JEE (Advanced) should have at least 75 per cent marks in the 12th or name in the top 20 percentile.
SC / ST students should have at least 65 per cent number in the 12th or top 20 percentile. Only then can they get admission in IIT. In such a situation, due to the coronavirus, now some relaxation can also be given in the admission process of IITs. In this case, it is being considered not to add the marks of class 12th.
There was a meeting on this subject. All the chairpersons of the JEE proposed that Marx's rules should be removed in Class XII this year. Because every state has taken different steps regarding board examination due to coronavirus.
Latest JEE Advanced Syllabus
IITs could remove board exam marks criteria for JEE
Because so many board exams have been scrapped in favour of alternative examinations like CBSE and ICSE tests, the IITs also plan to withdraw the requirements for the IIT entrance exams or JEE .
The rules state that candidates appearing for JEE should have scored at least 75 per cent in their board exams, or should be in the top 20 percentile of Class 12 exams.
JEE syllabus based on CBSE syllabus: A point of concern
Since CBSE has reduced its syllabus by 30 per cent for classes 9 to 12 in the academic year 2020-21, there has been concern about NEET and JEE because both the entrance exams are based on the CBSE syllabus of classes 11 and 12.
Under normal circumstances, however, students usually have to research content outside their CBSE syllabus to go well in JEE and NEET.
According to what a few coaching centres told Indian Express, reduction of the syllabus would only be beneficial if the pattern of the JEE exam also changed.
Unless the syllabus for JEE Advanced 2020 is reduced, then the syllabus for the JEE Main exam will possibly also be reduced. JEE Main 2020 is scheduled to take place between 1 and 6 September 2020.
Nevertheless, since the board exam syllabus for 2020-21 has been reduced by CBSE, reducing the syllabus for the JEE 2021 exams may be more beneficial than reducing the JEE 2020 syllable.
The National Testing Agency has yet to send any official notification regarding the January 2021 JEE Main 2021 first JEE exam. If the schools do not reopen after August as scheduled, this exam may be postponed.
