IIT: Faculty want IIT JEE and common entrance testEditorial Team830|0Last Updated:12:56 pm, April 30, 2012
Faculty associations at two IITs have decided there should a common entrance exam for engineering in 2014.
Faculty members at IIT Delhi and IIT Bombay have suggested that the proposed Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test (ISEET) that replaces the IIT JEE should be held from 2014.
IIT Kharagpur, however, felt that such an exam should be introduced a few years later but students should still sit for IIT JEE after taking ISEET.
The senate at IIT Kanpur and faculty members at IITs in Delhi, Bombay and Kharagpur insisted that IIT JEE continue in its present format for 2013.
ISEET is supposed to be held in two parts. It has been suggested that the exam will be held in conjunction with CBSE and the IITs.
A meeting between IIT directors, faculty associations and the HRD Ministry will take place in June.
