Lately IIT Council’s of  most of the IIT’s including IIT Delhi, IIT Kanpur and IIT Bombay have expressed serious concerns on the implementation of ISEET from 2013 and also the pattern of ISEET and Ministry of Human Resources Development has earlier constituted a core group to try persuade IIT’s for the acceptance of ISEET as the entrance examination for it’s under-graduate courses from 2013, before the IIT Council meet which will be held on April 14 of this year where the final decision on the  implementation of ISEET might be taken MHRD is holding a meeting with the Directors of all IIT’s and representatives of different IIT Councils to try convince IIT’s .


Though IIT’s are not opposing the requirement of reforms in IIT JEE and nor the implementation of new entrance examination, some of the concerns expressed by the Council are:

  • Weightage to 12th board examination scores
  • Formula for weightage of 12th board scores for ISEET .
  • ISEET constituting only objective questions
  • Control of IIT’s on the entrance exam
Though there is a serious push back from all the IIT’s , MHRD seems to be pretty serious on the implementation of the examination from 2013 and is trying hard to convince all the stake holders.
