Weightage to +2 Marks in CBSE/State Board is NO More for JEE


Most of the young Engineering aspirants will definitely love to clear their Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) to get their desired Engineering Seat in any of the top premier institutes in India like IITs, NITs and more private universities as well. However, when coming to the cutoff marks stuff, clearing the JEE exam isn’t enough as there will be a 40% weightage to the CBSE/State Board +2 exam marks. Though with excellent record with the JEE Exam, some students might miss the chances of getting admission with the top institutes, just because of lack of marks with their respective boards Plus 2 exams for sure.

No More 40% Weightage to Class XII Marks in JEE:
“The Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry on Thursday said there will be no system of giving 40% weightage to class XII board marks in the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) from 2017.” The above statement is officially declared by MHRD by Honorable minister SmirtiIrani. Interestingly, this crucial parameter will be come to play by JEE 2017 onwards. She also added that, “For the candidates to qualify in the JEE, they shall have secured at least 75% marks or be in the top 20 percentile in the Class XII examination conducted by respective boards”.
The ministry also stated that, ““The present system of giving 40% weightage for the Class 12 marks in calculating the ranks in the JEE Main shall be dispensed with. All other JEE systems shall remain unchanged”.

No Changes with the JEE 2017 Pattern:
These changes doesn’t affect the pattern of the JEE 2017 examination for sure. Hence, there will definitely be a two parts, i.e. part I JEE Main and Part II JEE Advanced indeed.
Also, the candidates admissions to the IITs and NITs will remains the same as the candidates performance with the JEE Advanced Exam indeed.

“Luck is nothing but meeting of preparation with opportunity”
        -states a famous proverb. Becoming a billionaire or famous person overnight can happen only in dreams but in real world to be successful we need to work hard and this applies to exams as well.

Nothing comes easy to us and life can never be considered as a cake walk but it is actually a bed full of thorns and roses. So never give up, get ready for the upcoming exams and frequently visit our examsavvy.com site for cool exam preparation tips…

In-depth Analysis of JEE Paper 1 & 2:

·        The Question Paper – I for B.E. / B.Tech courses in 2016 is similar to pattern of 2011 to 2015. Paper has objective type questions multiple choices with one out of four correct with equal weightage to Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.

·        There were 30 questions each in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics with four marks for right answer and for each in-correct response, one-fourth of the total marks allotted to the question would be deducted from the total score.

·        The paper was set from the CBSE syllabus of Class 11 and 12, however as expected many of the questions were conceptual, and some needed analytical skills.

·        About 27 questions were easy, 48 questions were of moderate difficulty and 15 questions were of relatively higher difficulty.

·      In all the three subjects, five to six questions were framed quite differently. Few of them were also ambiguous.

·    In Physics, there were two questions which had more than one correct answer, leaving students in confusion.

·      Mathematics paper was good but lengthy, and chemistry paper was pretty much memory-based.

·   Paper is balanced and is set from CBSE syllabus of Class XI and XII, however as expected many of the questions is conceptual with some needing analytical skills. About 27 questions are easy, 48 questions are of moderate difficulty and 15 questions are of relatively higher difficulty.

·      Few questions in Physics were tricky and challenging but compared to last year this section was a lot tougher. Further Q. 84 (Set F) has two answers. One or two questions in Chemistry were of tricky prima-facie type. Q 17 (Set F) appears to have no matching answer in choices given. Mathematics compared to last year is shade tough with few questions being quite lengthy compared to normal.

·      In all the three subjects, five to six questions were framed quite differently. Few of them were also ambiguous. In Physics, there were two questions which had more than one correct answer, leaving students in a dilemma whether to leave it or attempt it. In addition, two questions were confusing and anyone who tried attempting them might have wasted a fair bit of their valuable time.

·   Mathematics paper was good but lengthy.  Chemistry paper was pretty memory-based with its only one question a little difficult.

While on one hand, the exam was comparatively tougher this year, on the other hand JEE Main 2016 Cutoff may remain on lower end. This year, a total of 12,07,257 students had registered for this national level entrance exam. The engineering institutes which conduct admission on basis of JEE Main 2016 Rank include NITs, IITs, GTTIs and other premier colleges.

Candidates, who appeared for the exam, said that the overall exam was tough. The questions were of moderate difficulty level with Physics section being the toughest. Questions from Chemistry section were the easiest.

IIT will Conduct Entrance Exams in Abroad Sooner



Joining in any of the Indian Institutions of Technology (IIT) is certainly dream of plenty of young engineering aspirants in India and even abroad as well. The major reason behind that is, you can have a plenty of opportunities with any of these prestigious institutions like hefty package jobs, research programs and various other life changing aspects. However, joining in these top technical institutes in India isn't that easy for sure. IIT-JEE is the only way to join for the undergraduate courses and GATE is the gateway for the Post-Graduate courses and some other entrance examinations for the rest few courses.


IIT to Conduct Entrance Exams in Abroad:

Though, there are certain percentage of seats made available for the foreign students for various courses in the IIT campus, they should come to India to write the entrance examinations accordingly. Just in order to make sure the attending the entrance examinations for the IIT’s easier, IIT panel is planning to conduct the entrance examinations even in abroad sooner.


IIT to Increase Courses Fees:

A proposal for a three-fold hike in annual fees of IITs from the present Rs 90,000 was on Thursday approved by an IIT panel though a final decision would require the nod of HRD Minister Smriti Irani. Another key recommendation the Standing Committee of IIT Council (SCIC) made was that the proposed new entrance examination designed to test the aptitude conducted by a National Authority of Test (NAT) would be held from 2017 onwards. However, the Final decision in this regard too rests with Irani. According to the some report to daily, the IIT spokesperson said that, “"However, the sub-committee has been again asked to consider if this fee hike should also be applied to students studying at Postgraduate level as they are studying on a fellowship basis".


IIT Entrance Exams in 8 Countries:


Another committed with the IIT proposed about conducting the IIT Entrance examination across abroad. Yes, Another nod that the committee is learnt to have given is regarding a proposal to hold IIT admission tests in eight countries abroad to attract the best of foreign students.
