JEE to Replace AIEEE and IIT-JEE from 2013

The Joint Admission Board (JAB) has accepted the percentile on the basis of a formula for organising the JEE in 2013.

The IIT-JEE candidates need to appear in a screening test first. Students who qualify will be provided with an opportunity to sit in the Advanced JEE.

Some of India's traditional and most prestigious entrance exams are soon to going to give way to a new body-a consolidated entrance exam that will change the way students enter the hallowed IITs and equally renounced NITs, along with a host of other institutes.

The HRD Ministry has come with a revolutionary proposal that has a solitary, national level entrance test-Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test (JEE) -replacing engineering entrance exams like IIT-JEE and AIEEE from 2013 onwards. Though the papers will be set by the IITs, the exam will be organised by the CBSE Board.

A meeting was being organised by the Joint Admission Board of IITs on February 18, 2012 to take a final decision on organising the national level common entrance test for admissions to various different science and engineering programs in India. The IIT heads participated in the meeting to discuss the single entrance test and the terms and conditions for the same. The test has already been finalised by the IIT Council.

The information of the JEE examination are stated below:

  • Date/Month of Exam: April or May # (year1) #
