IITs to stop JMET for PG management admissions

Mumbai:The Indian Institutes of Technology (Bombay, Delhi, Kanpur, Roorkee, Kharagpur and Madras) would discontinue the Joint Management Entrance Test and apply Common Admission Test scores for admissions to their post-graduate management degree programmes. The Indian Institutes of Management conduct the Common Admission Test.

The IIT-Madras, supposed to conduct JMET this year, is yet to issue an official advertisement on discontinuing it but the premier institutes have been informed about the decision. “Only students with CAT score will be eligible to apply,’’ the institute’s website said.

IIT-Delhi has also announced the JMET cancellation on its website and asked students to check websites of departments/schools of management for other eligibility criteria.

“JMET was only the qualifying exam. Instead of the JMET score, the CAT score will be considered for admissions. Apart from the CAT score, individual IITs will have their own criteria like conducting GD and PI. Others might still conduct a qualifying exam for the international students.

However, IIT-B has decided to use CAT for the base qualifying score. IIT-Madras will be officially releasing advertisements announcing the new policy to students,” said Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) chairman Narayan Rangaraj. “The IITs have jointly decided to do away with JMET.”

An IIT-B official said, “The decision was taken to reduce the burden of multiple tests on students. CAT is a well-established qualifying exam for management aspirants. So, IITs being autonomous have decided to consider CAT scores for our admissions too.”

Sources at IIT-Madras said performance in CAT, group task and personal interviews, previous academic qualification and work experience, will be considered for the selection process.

Around 5,600 students applied for the JMET last year from IIT-B zone. More than 26,000 students appeared for the exam from all over the country last year and close to 5,500 students qualified for the admission. Bangalore’s Indian Institute of Science also uses the JMET scores for admissions.

CAT 2011 convener Janakiraman Moorthy from IIM-Calcutta said, “This year in addition to over 150 institutes that use CAT scores, IITs also have decided to use our scores. An official release is still awaited. Xavier’s institutes, which conduct the Xavier’s Aptitude test (XAT), will also consider CAT scores from this year onwards.”
