Students preparing for IIT and NIT entrance exams should prepare well for their Class 12 exams as the HRD ministry has decided that there will be no change in the pattern of joint entrance examination (JEE) 2016.
Putting an end to the confusion over a change in the pattern of JEE 2016, the human resource development (HRD) ministry has decided to continue the same pattern of JEE 2015 under which 40% weight is given to board marks and 60% to the JEE-Main score.
“We have received the report of the committee and it will be studied in detail. However, as only a few months are left for the entrance exams we want to give ample time to students to prepare and hence have decided not to make any changes to the format right now,” said a senior HRD official requesting anonymity.
A sub-committee of the National Institutes of Technology (NIT) council had recommended that Class 12 board marks should not be taken into account for admissions in NITs. However, HRD minister Smriti Irani had formed another committee to examine the issue. The ministry has received the report and its recommendations, if accepted, will be applicable only in 2017.

    hello sir
    i have taken a drop this year .. my cbse board percentage is 93.4 percent and my jee mains marks were 188... i wanted to ask whether i should give improvement exam to try and increase my percent or just focus on jee .. i am really confused as marks in boards create a massive difference between ranks ... also sir pls tell the marks that i need to get in jee mains to get a rank under 4000 with 93.4 in boards

    1. First of all looking at your scores i Feel you must be aiming for ADVANCED and BITSAT more than JEE MAIN and if you are confident about your preparation forget about the board noise. Just concentrate on your JEE preparation. Good Luck
