NEW IIT JEE Pattern- 2013
The Joint Admission Board of IIT Advanced Joint Entrance Examination 2013 released the New Exam dates and procedure for IITs. The admission to the undergraduate programmes at the IITs and ISMU, Dhanbad, for the year 2013 will be based on a two tier test, which consist of JEE Main and JEE Advanced.
JEE Main for NITs
The first test is called the JEE Main conducted by CBSE. The IIT JEE Main will be conducted on both online and offline modes. The offline mode of JEE Main will be held on 7th April, 2013. The online mode will be conducted from 8th April to 30th April 2013.
Admission for NITs, IIITs, DTU, CFTIs (Previously AIEEE Admissions)
The merit list for admission to NITs, IIITs, DTU, Delhi and other CFTIs will be prepared by giving 40% weight age (suitably normalized) to class XII (or equivalent examination) or other qualifying examination marks and 60% to the performance in JEE Main Examination.
IIT JEE Advanced
The second test is called the JEE Advanced. The top 1, 50,000 rankers of JEE Main, which include students from all categories will be eligible to appear in JEE Advanced Test. The JEE Advanced Test will be held on June 2, 2013. The test will be conducted in offline mode only.
Admissions to IITs and ISMU Dhanbad will be based only on category wise All India Rank (AIR) in JEE Advanced. The successful student should also be in the top 20 percentile of their Board Exams (state board or CBSE) in applicable categories.
The following procedure will be used for selecting the 1, 50,000 candidates who will be eligible to appear for JEE (Advanced)-2013 based on their performance in JEE (Main) -2013:
- 50.5% of the 1, 50,000 (75,750 candidates) will be taken from the top rankers of the Common Merit List (CML) of JEE (Main).
- 27% (40,500), 15% (22,500) and 7.5% (11,250) candidates will be taken from the top rankers of the category rank lists of OBC-NCL, SC and ST, respectively.
- 3% of the candidates selected within each category will be those belonging to PwD (Persons with Disability) sub-category, who figure in the respective rank lists of JEE (Main).
Only the candidate’s aggregate marks in JEE (Main) will be considered and no tie-break mechanism will be implemented at this stage. This will make the list of candidates eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced)-2013 slightly more than 1, 50,000 due to bunching of candidates with the same aggregate marks at the bottom of each category.
