The Central Board of Secondary Education is likely to take a decision on JEE Mains examination for next year at a crucial meeting to be held on Tuesday (September 17). Some of the Board members have mooted two examinations for the Mains- one in February and another one in April-May. The best score of the two exams would be taken as the final one for computing the rank, they suggested. The Board would discuss this issue and expected to take a decision.
This proposal was one among few that have come from many academicians in the wake of huge controversy erupted on the normalisation procedure adopted from this year after the introduction of new pattern for admission into IITs, NITs and CFTIs.
Several states, especially Andhra Pradesh have strongly opposed the normalisation procedure describing it as irrational, unjust and detrimental to the future of many brilliant students. A case is also being pending before the apex court on the issue.
Student community is strongly opposing the two-exam proposal as it would deviate their attention from their annual exams. It does not find favour even from students of CBSE syllabus. Parents and teachers said it would add one more exam for students who are facing trouble with multiplicity of exams. No exam should be held in February, said students.
