Students gear up for the all new JEE

Joint entrance examination for engineering to be held in two levels for the year 2013

Unlike the previous years, where national engineering entrance examinations were held in two different forms - All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) and IIT-JEE, there would only be one Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) in two levels for the year 2013.

New pattern

With only four months left for the examination, students and teachers of various junior colleges in the city are gearing up to suit the new pattern.

JEE papers of 2013 are to be held as JEE (Mains), for admission into NITs, IIITs and other centrally funded technical institutions, and JEE (Advanced) for admission into IITs.

With the pattern of the question papers being changed and the standard of papers remaining an uncertainty, teachers and students feel the pressure. B. Sanjeeva Reddy, principal of an IIT Academy here in Hyderabad says,

Syllabus changed

“The syllabus for this year has also been changed apart from the pattern, and we are training the students accordingly. We cannot estimate the standard of the papers; this is causing some anxiety to both teachers and students.”

The Joint Entrance Examination will also be carrying a percentage of 12th board scores, a move by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) which came in for much criticism in the country.

While many students say that it is not justified as the syllabus is not uniform in different States, CBSE seems to be aiming at a standardised entrance examination to avoid the hassle of giving different examinations. Ajith Reddy, student of a junior college in the city who is preparing for JEE (Mains) opines that the new pattern would mean that a student will have to fare consistently well in all the examinations, including the 12th boards, unlike previous years.

He adds, "Having focused equally well on the State's intermediate examinations, I feel confident about JEE (Mains). For those who wouldn't have done this, it might get difficult to appear for JEE.? Andhra Pradesh has always held some of the topmost positions in the previously held AIEEEs and IIT- JEEs.

With many ambiguities in the changed pattern, one can merely hope that this test run of JEE would be of equally good possibility for the state students to conquer.
