Entry Rules for Technical Institutes Changed Now


  • Ministry of Human Resource Development approved the change.

  • This year, 75% of marks will not be compulsory in the 12th Standard. Admission will be given only on the Merit of JEE Mains.

The admission rules of other centrally aided technical institutes including NIT (National Institute of Technology) have also relaxed. Under this, there will be no mandatory 75% marks or top-20 percentile criteria in the 12th for this year i.e. academic session 2020-21 for admission of these institutions.

Students will be directly admitted based on the merit of JEE Mains. However, the 12th pass will be compulsory for students. For admission in these institutes, students were required to have 75% marks or top-20 percentile in the 12th as well as the merit of JEE Mains. However, after the Corona transition, the exams of 12th had to be canceled and the students had to undergo internal assessment. Points are given.

Due to this, the students hoping to do better in the board exams had to be disappointed. However, realizing the mood of the students, the Central Seat Allocation Board (BSEB) had decided to abolish the entry rules compulsory of 12th marks and the top 20 percentile.

 The Ministry of Human Resource Development has also given its approval on Thursday. The ministry had earlier relaxed a similar rule in the admission rules of IITs has given. In which only JEE Advanced has been made the basis for admission.

Of these, about twenty thousand seats of undergraduates and about nine thousand seats of postgraduates are present in NITs.
