JoSAA: Spot Round Decision to be taken tomorrow

Decision about vacant seat in NITs, IIITs and GFTIs will be taken in the meeting of JoSAA which is scheduled on 1st August 2015. Interested candidates may visit JoSAA web site (josaa.nic.in)/CSAB web site (csab.nic.in) after 1st August 2015

This is the message appearing on JoSAA site.

As Per news report in TOI
A total of 184 seats remain vacant after the last round of admission in the NITs/IIITs and 18 other government-funded technical institutes. While admissions have come to a close, authorities will soon decide whether to have a round of spot admissions at individual institutes or close the admission process. 

Several students have written to the JoSAA to surrender their seats and demanded their acceptance fee of Rs 45,000 be refunded, but the authorities have, so far, remained silent on their pleas. According to the rules, a student who accepts a seat has to pay a fee for the same. Later, if the student gets a better option elsewhere and pulls out of the admission process, the fee is not refunded. 

"We do have some seats that are vacant because students did not report to the institute. We plan on discussing the matter on refund of acceptance fees as well as having a round of spot admissions," said a source. 

Meanwhile, students said they were looking at the option of taking legal recourse if their fees were not refunded. "The sum we have paid is not petty change. Why then must they not refund it? The authorities can cut some administrative costs and refund the rest," said a parent.

Newer IITs Still not able to attract the top rankers

If further proof is needed of how top-ranking candidates are shunning the new IITs, here's some data to consider: of the top 1,000 rank holders in the qualifying exam, only 20 have been roped in and all of them by IIT Hyderabad. 

"There's not much difference over can the last few years in the ranking of JEE Advanced and the choice of the institutes by the students," said Adrijit Goswami, chairman of the Joint Entrance Examination (Advanced) at the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur. Some directors feel the newer institutes, which started in 2008 or later, still have a long way to go before they can be compared with the older IITs. "They will take at least four to five years to be able to compete with the old IITs," said Pradipta Banerji, director of IIT Roorkee. However, he added that the students' preference was clearly driven by coaching institutes. 
"These ranks are not a fair measure to judge the popularity of any IIT," Banerji said. Among the top 2,000 rank holders, 29 students have opted for five new IITs. The remaining five IITs attracted none. After IIT Hyderabad, the institute at Indore is the most popular with 15 of the top 2,000 rank holders, while IIT Ropar got 11 and those at Mandi and Gandhinagar and the Indian School of Mines Dhanbad got one each. 

"Our students prefer the old IITs and then the established NITs (National Institutes of Technology) to the new IITs," said Aakash Chaudhry, director of Aakash Education Services, a coaching institute that trains students for the JEE and other engineering entrance exams. The JEE (Advanced) is taken by candidates seeking admission to the IITs, while the JEE (Main) is for entry into the NITs, which were earlier known as the Regional Engineering Colleges, and other technical institutions funded by the central and state governments. 

According to Manindra Agrawal, IIT Kanpur's dean of faculty affairs, students prefer to go with the NITs rather than any new IIT because of the faculty, infrastructure and better track record of placements. 

"The new IITs need more time for anyone to judge them. Institutes take decades and even centuries to become globally established," said IIT Ropar director Sarit K Das. 

(As Published on ET website)

Another new report of TOI
 In the midst of a raging debate over old versus new Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), IIT Ropar stands out among the new ones in terms of its most coveted course BTech (computer science and engineering). Next only to IIT Hyderabad, which is better placed, the Ropar institute has fared much better than those in Indore, Patna, Jodhpur and Bhubaneswar. IIT Gandhinagar is not listed for the course.

The popularity of the course at IIT Ropar is reflected in the opening ranks of the open category' for the second round of counselling. However, a clearer picture will emerge only after the third and final counselling on July 18.

"In case of computer science, IIT Ropar has stood out among the new institutes so far, except for the one in Hyderabad. There could be some shuffling of students based on their preference in the third counselling," said professor P K Raina, dean, academic affairs and research.

"Apart from BTech, the department also offers PhD programme in computer science and engineering. It has taken up the challenge to attract world class faculty in all areas of the subject.

"The objective is to continue building on the initial momentum and to attract the best students and the faculty over the coming years," added a senior faculty member.

IIT Ropar is one of the eight new IITs set up by the Union ministry of human resource development (HRD) in 2008 to expand the reach and enhance the quality of technical education in the country.

The other new institutes are IIT Mandi (Himachal Pradesh), IIT Jodhpur (Rajasthan), IIT Gandhinagar (Gujarat), IIT Hyderabad (Andhra Pradesh), IIT Indore (Madhya Pradesh), IIT Bhubaneswar (Odisha) and IIT Patna (Bihar).

Despite facing acute space constraints, IIT Ropar offers BTech in computer science and engineering, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering.

The programmes are spread over a period of eight semesters and the institute admits 40 students in each branch, selected through IIT joint entrance examination (JEE) conducted every year. In addition, the institute now offers doctoral programme in several disciplines.

1st batch of BS grads passes out of IISc

A bunch of 27 students from the four-year undergraduate BS (bachelor of science) program of the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) created history of sorts by becoming the first ever batch to formally graduate from the century-old institute. 

Some of the students have secured seats in renowned foreign institutions where they will pursue further studies.   

The BS programme thrusts on research and is interdisciplinary in nature covering a wide spectrum of subjects ranging from pure sciences such as physics, chemistry, biology to those such as materials science, engineering and even humanities.   

An excited Indrashis Datta, who specialised in biology, just returned from an internship stint at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland said, “I came back just to attend the convocation and I will be leaving tonight.”

Indrashis will be pursuing a Masters degree at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel. 

His classmate, Himan Galagali will be heading to the renowned John’s Hopkins University, USA, on a full scholarship. She wishes to pursue research  in molecular biology  “My time here was quite good. There was a good peer group, good instructors,” she said. 
Many from the undergraduate batch had given up seats in prestigious engineering and medical colleges in favour of research at IISc. 

Pranav Garg, who specialised in Physics, got a very good rank of 569 in the IIT-JEE exams and could have easily got seat in any of the prestigious IITs. He will now be heading to University of British Colombia, Canada. 

Another student, Sriram S, had a chance to go to NIT, Surathkal and Mysore Medical College, however, he choose to pursue life sciences at IISc.  Similarly, Indrashis and Himani had forfeited their seats at Benaras Hindu University and Bangalore Medical College respectively.

Why many IITians fail to cope with the curriculum after clearing entrance?

I am writing this article in response to the article published in Economic Times with the same heading.
The writer here seems to be only touching the things superficially and not working hard enough to first find what really is the issue and what are the causes? 
The  parts I fully agree with in the article are
"With the number of IITs going up and the old IITs expanding more seats, there is a huge gap in the merit of the top students compared to the students at the bottom," said Anurag Sharma, dean of academics at IIT-Delhi. 
"There are many such students who have entered the IITs with zero interest in engineering" said IIT-Gandhinagar director Sudhir Jain. 

Reason#1
RESERVATION
I think most of you will agree that this is the most important cause for such outcomes.
Firstly IITs should release the data about how many of the expelled students were from reserved categories. With the implementation of OBC reservation, government increased the seats in order to have same number of general seats as before and in a very hasty manner increased the burden on the institutes which I don't think they were ready to take.In this drama of OBC and General its the SC and ST candidates whose number increased magically . This magical increase is what has led to the present problem. Its not only the problem of quality of students but the undue burden on institutes because of increased number of seats is also hurting everyone.

Reason#2
Deterioration IN PRIMARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION STANDARDS
With the decline is shine on Govt. Schools a lot of Private public schools have mushroomed all over the country which don't have the honest(note the word) and even proper qualified teachers. As a result greater number of small coaching institutes or tuition teachers have also come up at the I-X class level who are promoting the rote learning as majority of them themselves even don't know the concepts really. Plus the books have changed but the teachers were not trained to teach on the lines and this mismatch is also hurting.


I again sincerely appeal to all of you that please don't single out IIT Coaching Institutes as 100% responsible for all the debacles. I agree that many of IIT coaching institutes are actually not helping students to actually learn and enjoy the Science and Mathematics but some are doing it very well.

JEE (M) ranks soar post revised Class XII scores

Several students whose Class XII scores increased after re-evaluation, have found their JEE (Main) ranks rise by a few hundred and, in some cases, even thousands.
Although CBSE did not make any official announcement for the revised rank list on their official website, several students could see their new ranks on it on Friday.
The Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) said meritorious students will get seats of their choice according to revised ranks, provided they have filled their choices in a decreasing order of preferences.
Several students, though, said a revision now does not mean much. One said it is unfair as they have filled their choices online according to their original ranks and the first round of seat allotment is already over. And students will not get a second chance to fill choices.
One student said CBSE should have taken into account revised scores before coming up with JEE (Main) rank lists.
A JoSAA official said, "There is a provision of supernumerary seats in NITs for students whose ranks rise after re-evaluation. Revised ranks will be considered and students will get a seat in the institutes they desire according to their new ranks, provided they have filled their choices in a decreasing order of preferences. They should have considered the possibility of a rise in ranks."
M Goel, who had secured 1,833 rank in JEE (Main), saw it jump to 536 after revision of his Class XII marks. Though his first choice was Computer Science (CS), Goel may not get a CS seat in any top NIT now. "With 1,833, I would not have been eligible for any. But now, with the 536th rank, I would have managed a seat in NITs in Warangal, Surathkal or Trichy. But I have filled in my choices on the basis of my original rank," said Goel. In the first round of allotment, announced on June 7, he secured a seat in Material Science and Metallurgy at IIT-Bombay with JEE (Advanced) rank, which he will take..
Another student, A Gangwal, saw her rank jump from 17,441 to 9,750. She hopes to get a better seat after the revision.

IIT entrance may have a written section from 2017

 Getting into an IIT might get tougher from the 2017 session. The IIT Joint Admission Committee is considering adding a third component — a written section — after the Mains and Advance tests.

This new segment will add another layer of complexity to an already tough examination where every single percentile counts. The board hopes to curtail guess-work by candidates and force them to exhibit their actual grasp of a subject. It will necessitate an overhaul of the evaluation system but the committee is ready to do that if it improves the quality of students.

A feature of MCQ tests across the world is that candidates make blind guesses for 10-15% questions and jog their memory to attempt some others without having a grasp on the concept, said a source in the committee. This is all the more true for India where rote learning is almost a part of education culture and IIT-JEE coaching a multi-crore business.
"Candidates sometimes use the method of elimination to choose an answer. We want to minimize that. The best way to do this is to make candidates write the answer rather than tick a box," a senior IIT professor said. MCQs are a standard method to assess a candidate's comprehension, analysis or application skills, but an essay-type section will force them to show how much they truly understand a concept and how they arrange their thoughts to develop an argument, the teacher added.

Incorporating the first change — getting candidates to write on their own — can be done with little effort, said a source. But with over 13 lakh candidates appearing the test, won't evaluation be a problem? Not all answersheets will go for evaluation, said the source. While all candidates will have to attempt the essay section, their answers will be evaluated only if they get a certain score in the IIT-JEE (Advance), said a source.

"We are trying to develop a machine-readable answerscript. We need to make some changes in the computer programming so that it can read the near possible answers and accordingly evaluate the answerscripts," said a source. For instance, machines can read numbers or names of chemical compounds, such as hydrogen peroxide, but a separate programme is needed for giving credits to part answers. "This will take some time," an official said. If the committee okays the proposal, the written segment may be introduced in 2017.

Experts welcome the proposed change to break the monopoly of mushrooming coaching centres. "The entrance examination has already been bifurcated. The coaching-centre hegemony will be further curtailed if a written component is introduced and students have to find a solution to the problem," said a tutor at a major coaching centre.

IIT Bombay: The Topper's Choice

Yet again, the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay has retained its position as the most preferred destination among the top ranking candidates of the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Advanced. After the first round of seat allotment this year, figures revealed that 65 of the top 100, considered to be the elite, have been allotted seats at IIT Bombay.
This was followed by IIT Delhi, where 30 of the top 100 have opted for a seat. Further, while IIT Madras has three, IIT Kanpur has two of the top 100 rankers.
The oldest IIT — IIT Kharagpur — did not receive a single student from the top 100 this year. Even IIT Roorkee and Guwahati failed to get a single student from the top slots.
The trend has been consistent since 2005 when 52 of the top 100 rankers went to IIT Bombay; the number stood at 58 last year. Out of 1,24,741 candidates who had registered for JEE-Advanced this year, 1,17,238 appeared for the exam and 26,456 qualified. Across all IITs, 10,006 seats are available this year.
Several years ago, IIT Kanpur used to be the first choice of top rankers. But analysis of students’ choices in the last 10 years shows that IIT Bombay followed by IIT Delhi are the most sought after now. IIT Kanpur’s popularity among top scorers have dipped steadily — from 17 among the top 100 in 2005 to zero in 2013 and two this year. And while old favourites like Kanpur and Madras have slipped the preference list, Guwahati and Roorkee have failed to get even one among the first 100 in a decade; IIT Kharagpur had three in 2005 and one in 2007. Further, since their inception, the newer IITs have not been able to attract any from among the top 100.
Among the top 500 candidates too, IIT Bombay is a clear winner with 177 candidates, followed by 119 in IIT Delhi, 75 in IIT Kanpur, 52 in IIT Madras, 51 at IIT Kharagpur, 23 at IIT Roorkee and one in IIT Guwahati. Further, figures show that among the top 1000, 273 have been allotted seats at IIT Bombay, followed by 194 at IIT Delhi, 172 at Kanpur, 107 at Kharagpur, 103 at Madras, 46 at Roorkee and 43 at Guwahati. IIT (BHU) and IIT Hyderabad have also managed to get 38 and 20 respectively among top 1000.
A senior faculty member from IIT Bombay said that multiple factors including broad-based education with a flexible curriculum, recognition of the institute globally as a brand, location in the financial capital, career opportunities, research avenues and industry links are responsible for IIT Bombay’s popularity among students and why it has consistently remained the first choice. An active campus life and the overall ambience, according to students, have also contributed to IIT Bombay’s increasing popularity, including popular festivals like “Techfest” and “Mood Indigo”.

IMPORTANT INFO: Think Twice before reporting to any Reporting Centre

If you haven't performed very well in JEE and has appeared XII in 2015 and in the back of mind the option of reappearing in JEE 2016 is there, and you have got some seat through JoSAA in joint counselling , then I will advice you to think carefully twice before reporting to a reporting center.

As per the business rules

XVII. ELIGIBILITY TO APPEAR IN JEE (ADVANCED) IN SUBSEQUENT YEARS
58. Candidates who reject allocated seat can appear for JEE (Advanced) 2016 provided they meet all other eligibility requirements.
59. Candidates who accept the allocated seat by reporting at the admitting institute or a reporting center, irrespective of whether they attend classes or not, become ineligible for JEE (Advanced) in subsequent years.
60. Candidates whose admission is cancelled for any reason whatsoever become ineligible to appear to JEE (Advanced) in subsequent years.
61. Candidates who produce forged documents or indulge in acts of cheating are debarred from appearing in JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced) next [and subsequent] year(s).

Also it says
40. Option to reject (or not accept) the allocated seat: Candidates who want to reject the allocated seat can do so as follows:
(i) By NOT remitting the seat acceptance fee [and hence, not report at the reporting center]
(ii) If the seat acceptance fee has already been remitted, by not reporting at the Reporting Center. Seat acceptance fee will be refunded to such candidates.
41. There is no option to withdraw from seat allocation or to surrender an allocated seat other than by rejecting the seat as mentioned above
42. Candidates who reject allocated seat cannot participate any more in Joint Seat Allocation for the ensuing academic year 2015-16.

JOSAA: Lock choices for IITs, NITs by this evening

The deadline for online filling-in and locking of choices for the joint seat allocation process for IITs and NITs has been extended by a day after the portal slowed down for 15-20 hours since Saturday. 

The site slowed down and displayed a session expiry error after most students logged on to check their mock allocation status, a facility extended by the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) for the first joint process. The site opened for registration at noon on Sunday. Nearly 1.5 lakh students have registered so far for admissions in 85 government-funded technical institutions (GFTIs), including the premier IITs and NITs. Students can now register till 5pm on Monday. The rest of the schedule will stay. 

JoSAA authorities said on Sunday the mock seat allocation was a success, as only 150 seats in NITs were vacant. Though there was no confirmation on whether there will be vacancies in institutes after the final round, if mock seat allocations are any indicator, prospects seem to be good, an official said. He added, "Only 150 seats in NITs are vacant, of the 34,000 seats in all 85 institutes. Most seats were filled in the mock allocation process." The Delhi high court had directed IITs and NITs to conduct a joint seat allocation process after a professor from IIT-Kharagpur sought it, citing several vacant seats in these premier institutes. In the joint process, a student is allotted only one seat at a time, on the basis of choice and merit. 

The first joint admission process was delayed by a week as CBSE released the JEE (Main) rank list on June 30. The process began on July 1, instead of June 25. Sunday was supposed to be the last day for registration and online filling-in of choices. The first round of seat allocation will be on schedule, on July 7, officials said.

JEE MAIN: Confusion continues, new revised ranking on 8 July

Careers of thousands of students who took JEE (Main) exams this year are at stake with the complete breakdown of coordination between the CBSE and the Joint Seat Allocation Authority for Admissions (JOSSA) to IITs, NITs and IIITs.
In a shocker today, JOSSA website said the CBSE had on July 4 (i.e. today) published a revised JEE (Main) rank list after considering students’ re-evaluated marks and all such students must fill their forms for counseling by July 5. No such rankings have, however, been released by the CBSE, which said in a statement today that it would release the revised list on July 8. JOSSA’s final admission schedules for 2015 clearly say the first round of seat allocation would be over by July 7 and between July 8 and 12, the first round of seat acceptance by students would also conclude.
A notice on JOSSA’s website today read: “CBSE has published revised ranks of JEE (Main) 2015 today (04-07-2015) for candidates whose Class XII marks are revised. These candidates are advised to visit JOSAA portal and fill their choices accordingly by 5th July 2015.” 
But a CBSE statement, released today, said: “The board has decided to issue a revised list on 8th July 2015 … as requested by the joint seat allocation authorities for admissions now.”
What’s worse, the CBSE today sought to blame students and state boards for not sending updated marks (re-verified and re-evaluated) in time. The CBSE has been in the dock for publishing the first JEE (Main) rankings without considering the revised marks of thousands of candidates. Today the board said the July 1 rankings had considered the marks of students who had “updated their scores by June 27”. However, students said the CBSE website this year had no provision for updating scores by students. 
Also, the CBSE is conveniently blaming students and state boards for delaying the updated marks list of Class XII when its own regional offices are yet to send the updated lists to the CBSE headquarters.
Hundreds of students who dropped one year to improve their Class XII scores are affected by the CBSE’s haste to publish JEE rankings this year. Many of them alleged that the July 1 list contained their ranking based on 2014 school scores.

JEE MAIN COUNCELLING : Best NITs and IIITs

Well filling up the choices isn't an easy task and with so many NITs and IIITs its tough to decide the preferences. To help you out I am writing this article to help you in arranging your choices.

Please note that these are my personal views and you can differ with me . Before you take a decision based on information provided on this page, please check from other reliable sources you have.


  • If you are passionate about any particular stream and have done your basic homework about the course contents and possible career options and you are sure that you want to pick that stream, pick that. Don't bother about "log kya kahenge".
Which are the best NITs?

The trio from South i.e. Trichy Warangal and Surathkal are definitely the best of the lot. The we have NIT Jaipur, Calicut, Delhi, Allahabad on the nest ladder. Then we have Nagpur, Surat, Kurukshetra and other NITs.

Which is the best IIIT available through JoSAA?

Its easier to answer, it is IIIT Allahabad.Opt for IT here not ECE. Then comes its Amethi Campus, Gwalior, Jabalpur. 
Of the newer one's IIIT Chittor Looks Promising. IIIT Kota is also goos as long as it remains operted within MNIT Campus.




JEE MAIN 2015: AIR 1,2,3 ALL FROM MAHARASHTRA

Wednesday, when the CBSE announced the JEE (Main) ranks, proved to be a bright day for Maharashtra. All the top three rankers are from the state. Pune boy Sankalp Gaur is numero uno, followed by Tanuj Kaza from Mumbai and Giridhar S, also from Pune. 

Gaur, who scored 345 marks out of 360 in the exam, got 97.80% in his CBSE Class XII boards. "It was a pleasant surprise to find I had topped the all-India chart. I had the highest JEE score, but wasn't sure if I would top the country as the Class XII marks have also been considered," he said. Gaur will opt for electrical engineering in IIT-Bombay, but his ultimate aim is to pursue pure physics. 

Kaza, a student of PACE Junior Science College, Andheri, got 335 in Main and 95.85% in HSC. He called his feat of ranking second "least expected". Giridhar S, a student of Kendriya Vidyalaya, Pune, scored 321 in Main and got 98% in CBSE. 

He plans to choose computer science and engineering at IIT-Bombay. 

The fourth and fifth rankers, Sheshansh Agrawal and Divyansh Pareek, are from Jaipur. 

Because of the inclusion of Class XII scores, the JEE Advanced and Main ranks of the top rankers are at wide variance, including the top 5 (except Pareek). 

The top 20 Main rankers (again, except Pareek) were outside this slot in Advanced. Satvat Jagwani, who secured the first position in Advanced, got a Main rank of 740 on Wednesday. On the other hand, Gaur, the Main topper, was 56th on the Advanced merit list. Kaza, second in Main, was 45th in Advanced. Giridhar, third in Main, was 84th in Advanced. There are small difference in their JEE Main test scores and most secured above 90% in their respective boards. Purav Gandhi, who was Mumbai topper in Advanced, with an all-India rank of 29, has seen his Main rank drop down to 103. It doesn't matter to him, though, as he will anyway get into IIT-Bombay, his first choice.
