No More JEE Advanced, New Proposal to Be Discussed At the IIT Council Meet

By Admin 14th Aug, 2018 01:09 pm

Is it your dream to pursue B.Tech from IIT? In that case, 21st August, 2018 may be a historic day for you and several others like you who share the same dream.

And, why so? Let’s find out!

According to recent reports, a proposal has been made by faculty members of IIT to scrap JEE advanced. A Council meet is scheduled for 21st August where the feasibility of this proposal will be discussed.

Will such a radical change actually happen? Wait till 21st August to find out. For all you know, the IIT education system may soon be revamped!

The proposal in detail:  The full scope of the proposal is explained below:

  • Removing flagship B.Tech courses at IITs.
  • IITs to become high-end institutes offering post-graduate education.
  • IITs and other top institutions to admit students based on JEE Mains top bucket list, without any further tests or interviews. 
  • The B.Tech program at IITs to change into one semester IIT experience.
  • Students who spend a semester at IITs will be awarded degree issued by the universities.
  • Such students will be given preferential admission to IITs for M.Tech, provided that they complete their bachelor’s program with high scores.

 

Why this proposal?

The idea of dismantling JEE Advanced and doing away with flagship B.Tech courses have come from some of the most eminent faculty members at IIT who have urged the Council to ‘Revamp Engineering Education and Return Childhood to Students’. Also, the proposal is aimed at ‘checking the multi-million IIT coaching industry and to take IIT-level teaching to more students’, according to sources.

 

No Comment on Feasibility

According to HRD ministry sources, the proposal will be taken up for discussion in the upcoming meeting but no official comment has been made on the feasibility of its implementation.

What, according to you, are the chances that such a proposal will be accepted and implemented? Do let us know in the comments section.
