MHRD minister finally succeeded in changing the pattern of IIT JEE, with IIT Council and state education ministers giving approval for the new nation wide common engineering entrance examination, which will be still called JEE.
Speaking at a function held at IIT Delhi Kapil Sibal said “students do not get away from school scholastic system , an aberration has occurred between those who can afford to go for coaching for IIT-JEE and brilliant students who can’t afford to compete with them…As requested by the IITs, we are not changing the name of the examination. We will continue to call it the Joint Entrance Exam”.
Though the new pattern might not eliminate the need for coaching centers at the outset , it is very surprising to see that IIT JEE coaching centers around the country have already started advertising in papers for coaching of new pattern of Joint Entrance Examination.
to know if the new pattern of JEE is really going to reduce the burden on students , we will have to wait until the first implementation of the new exam.
