JEE MAIN 2013
CBSE has announced the details of the first Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) MAIN 2013. The information regarding various aspects of JEE MAIN like eligibility criteria, paper pattern,syllabus,marking scheme, final merit list etc., has been clearly spelt out by the CBSE, who has been entrusted with the responsibility of conducting JEE MAIN 2013
General perception of the student community is that JEE MAIN is AIEEE in its new avatar. AIEEE in its previous form had no bearing on the IIT admissions, had given no weightage to the class XII board marks. But from 2013, JEE MAIN, apart from the admissions into the NITs,IIITs,possibly other CFTIs, is also the first tier of the two-tier IIT selection process.
A candidate's All India Rank(AIR) will be a combination of 40% weightage to normalised 10+2 or other equivalent qualifying examination score and 60% weightage to his JEE MAIN score.
All NITs,IIITs admit students based on their AIR JEE MAIN ranks . Some of the CFTIs and other participating institutes may also use the JEE MAIN AIR ranks.
In case any State opts to admit students using JEE MAIN exam in the engineering Colleges affiliated to state Universities where States require separate merit list to be provided based on relative weightages adopted by the states, then the merit list shall be prepared with such relative weightages as may be indicated by States. The examination will be conducted in the Regional Languages of the State(s) on the requests of such State(s)
