The state government will object to the Union HRD ministry’s decision to replace IIT JEE 2013 and AIEEE 2013 from next year with a single national entrance test — Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test (Iseet).
Deputy Chief Minister Damodara Raja Narasimha and principal secretary of higher education G. Gopal will place the state’s objections during the State Education Ministers’ Conference to be held in New Delhi on February 22.
In the HRD ministry’s scheme of things, the Iseet will carry a weightage of 40 per cent for 10+2 while giving admissions to IITs, NITs, IIITs and Centrally-funded technical institutes.
The HRD ministry has also been asking states to replace their respective co-mmon entrance tests — Ea-mcet in the case of Andhra Pradesh — with Iseet from 2014 for admissions to engineering colleges across the country to save students from the trouble of appearing for multiple exams and to relieve them from incurring unnecessary expenditure towards additional exam fees etc.
They argue that any change should be applicable to a fresh batch of students who will take admissions in 10+2 courses in the coming academic year (2012) so that they can prepare accordingly to face Iseet in 2014.
