CLASS XII MARKS MAY SOON NOT COUNT FOR IN JEE
Students may not require their Class XII board marks for admissions to all central engineering institutes, other than IITs, from next year or by 2017, if a Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB) recommendation is accepted by the ministry of human resource development. On the other hand, the competitive exam may be held a tad earlier next year, for authorities say that additional time is required for the admission process.
Following the delay in submission of Class XII scores by boards to the CBSE and glitches in the scores of some students during this year's admission process, the CSAB will be strongly recommending admissions only on the basis of JEE (Main) scores. It means, the 40% weightage given to Class XII scores for admissions to NITs and other GFTIs (other than IITs) may be scrapped.
