One of the main reasons behind scrapping IIT JEE and AIEEE and trying to scrap a bunch of other engineering entrance examinations is removing the need for coaching institutes there by creating equal opportunity for rural students to get into prestigious IIT’s apart from the other premier engineering institutes.
For example here FIIT JEE feels that with the introduction of the new format of JEE will create need for coaching for more students as apart from the regular JEE examination and 12th board the new format of JEE will have aptitude test too.
“We expect more students because of the gap between school teaching and competition, which is the application of concepts which needs practice. However, now, students will have to appear for the aptitude test besides the advanced learning test,” said RL Trikha, director, FIIT JEE
“In the last three years, a large number of candidates is common to IIT-JEE and AIEEE rank lists The ISEET, which allocates weight to marks in class 12 exams will help students focus on academics,” said Satya Narayanan, chairman, CL Educate as quoted on financial express .
