As per the recent notification issued by DASA / CIWG 2019 that from 2021 – 2022 onwards, SAT 2 is no longer valid for getting admission in Premiere Indian colleges like NITs, IIITs, CFIs & SPAs etc.
As per the notification, NRI students are now needed to write JEE Main from 2021 – 22.
Class 12th Students (2019 - 2020)
NRI students who are in grade 12th this year (2019) are only eligible for writing SAT 2 for getting admission in NITs and other colleges based on SAT 2 score through DASA & CIWG scheme.
Class 11th & 10th Students (2019)
Students who came in grade 11th this year (2019) will be taking admission in NITs/ CFIs/ IIITs / SPAs in 2021 onwards under DASA / CIWG scheme and therefore, for them, JEE Mains Rank is valid as of now.
Will this prevail?
Clearly, we cannot say much in detail about it. Fact of the matter is that if there is any such notification to be out and implemented, these should be informed to NRI parents at least 3 years in advance.
Parents plan their tenure abroad and their children’s education, particularly when CIWG and DASA have residential criteria of minimum 2 years. In this duration, NRI student must complete his / her grade 11th and 12th from aboard.
Now, this is something for which NRI community was not prepared enough and this notification is more of a bummer.
For now, on DASA's official website, we have only news/notification available and no such circular or official notification can be found. This means that still the brainwork is going on and few changes are expected.
What to do as of now?
So, student who are in grade 11th this year (2019) who were planning to prepare for SAT 2 partially in 11th and then write 12th in 2020 are upset and not ready.
Bottom line is that you cannot risk it, so for now you have 2 years with you. Start preparing for JEE Main. Why?
- This is because as of now we do not have any option than to write JEE Main to get into NITs in India.
- If you prepare for JEE Main this will also help you in preparing for prestigious IITs in India. Once you clear JEE Main you just need to work on Advanced. Hardworking students can get into IITs too.
- Preparing JEE Main will help you in writing SAT 2 later on just in case the order is uplifted and reverted back to SAT 2
NEW UPDATES WILL BE POSTED HERE AS SOON AS THEY ARE AVAILABLE
