From 2017 NITs not to consider Class 12 marks for JEE Main all-India ranks

JEE-Main-2016-Application-I-min

The Union government has decided to roll back the decision to give 40 per cent weightage to an engineering aspirant’s Class 12 Board marks for admission to the NIT’S (National Institutes of Technology).With effective from 2017, Class 12 marks will not be considered for JEE Main all-India ranks.  

At present, the 31 NITs admit students based on All-India ranks prepared with 60 per cent weightage to a candidate’s JEE (Main) performance and 40 per cent weightage to his Class 12 marks.

According to the HRD Ministry, from 2017, NITs will no longer use board marks to calculate all-India ranks.  NITs will follow the same practice as done by IITs.

When the NIT Council met in October last year, no changes were approved to JEE (Main) 2016 and  the decision was deferred for 2017.

Now, both IITs and NITs will follow the same system and admit students solely on the basis of the entrance examination. The threshold for Board marks will only be a pre-condition for admission.
