## IIT’s Blunder Has Messed Up Career of 52 Students

The mistake committed by the IIT has almost ruined the career of 52 undergraduate students.  IIT had promised to 52 students that they would certainly get seats there. However, on 8th July, students came to know that their allotment had not been accepted. Students also have missed a chance to get seats in other engineering colleges offering architecture and pharmaceutical sciences program through AIEEE.  IITs have suggested students to attend a second round of counseling. However, students have been guaranteed a seat even after the second round of counseling.

## Common Engineering Entrance Test Not Welcomed By IITs

The Indian Institutes of Technology have rejected the idea of selecting the candidates through a Common Engineering Entrance Test for all engineering colleges. HRD ministry-appointed committee said in its report, “Scores in a well-designed National Aptitude Test should be used to capture parameters of interest such as raw intelligence, aptitude, general awareness, comprehension and written communication skills. NAT should not require extensive preparation and coaching. The questions should be designed in such a way that it would not require inputs beyond plus 2 level.” To make the exam process more friendly for students, the committee has proposed to make NAT an online test conducted throughout the year.

## A problem for IIT JEE aspirants

Consider the shown arrangement in which a thin rope ‘A’ with a linear density mA is connected to a thick rope ‘B’ with linear mass density mB. The thick rope passes over a pulley and is connected to a heavy block of mass M. The separation of fixed support S from a pulley is L. A stationary wave is setup in this composite string such that the joint remains a node. Given that mb = 4 kg/m, ma = 0.4 kg/m, M = 1 kg and L = 4l = 1 m. Under these conditions, find:

1. The least possible frequency of vibration
2. The total energy of vibration if the amplitude for both the string is A = 1 mm and the string vibrates at the frequency obtained in (a).

Year of passing Qualifying Examination (QE)
A candidate must have passed the QE for the first time, after October 1, 2008 or in the year 2009 or will be appearing in 2010.
Those who are going to appear in the QE later than October 1, 2010 are not eligible to apply for JEE-2010.
The qualifying examinations (QE) are listed below:
i) The final examination of the 10+2 system, conducted by any recognized central / state Board, such as Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi; Council for Indian School Certificate Examination, New Delhi; etc.
ii) Intermediate or two-year Pre-University examination conducted by a recognized Board / University.
iii) Final examination of the two-year course of the Joint Services Wing of the National Defence Academy.
iv) General Certificate Education (GCE) examination (London/Cambridge/Sri Lanka) at the Advanced (A) level.
v) High School Certificate Examination of the Cambridge University or International Baccalaureate Diploma of the International Baccalaureate Office, Geneva.
vi) Any Public School/Board/University examination in India or in any foreign country recognized as equivalent to the 10+2 system by the Association of Indian Universities (AIU).
vii) H.S.C. vocational examination.
viii) Senior Secondary School Examination conducted by the National Institute of Open Schooling with a minimum of five subjects.
ix) 3 or 4 year Diploma recognized by AICTE or a state Board of technical education. In case the relevant qualifying examination is not a public examination, the candidate must have passed at least one public (Board or Pre-University) examination at an earlier level.

Minimum Percentage of Marks in QE
Candidates belonging to GE, OBC and DS categories must secure at least 60% marks in aggregate in their QE. Whereas, those belonging to SC, ST and PD categories must secure at least 55% marks in aggregate in the QE.
The percentage of marks awarded by the Board will be treated as final. If the Board does not award the percentage of marks, it will be calculated based on the marks obtained in all subjects listed in the mark sheet. If any Board awards only letter grades without providing an equivalent percentage of marks on the grade sheet, the candidate should obtain a certificate from the Board specifying the equivalent marks, and submit it at the time of counselling/ admission. In case such a certificate is not provided then the final decision rests with the Joint Implementation Committee of JEE-2010.
4. Important Points to note
(i) One can attempt JEE only twice, in consecutive years. That means one should have attempted JEE for the first time in 2009 or will be appearing in 2010.
(ii) Those who have accepted admission after qualifying in JEE in earlier years by paying full fees at any of the IITs, IT-BHU, Varanasi or ISM, Dhanbad, are NOT ELIGIBLE to write JEE at all irrespective of whether or not they joined in any of the programmes.
(iii) The year of passing the Qualifying Examination is the year in which the candidate has passed, for the first time, any of the examinations listed above, irrespective of the minimum percentage marks secured.
(iv) The offer of admission is subject to verification of original certificates/ documents at the time of admission. If any candidate is found ineligible at a later date even after admission to an Institute, his/ her admission will be cancelled automatically.
(iv) If a candidate is expecting the results of the QE in 2010, his/her admission will only be provisional until he/she submits the relevant documents. The admission stands cancelled if the documents are not submitted in original to the concerned institute before September 30,2010.
(v) If a candidate has passed any of the examinations, listed in Sub-section III.2, before October 1,2008, he/she is not eligible to appear in JEE-2010.
(vi) If a Board invariably declares the results of the QE late (only after September 30, every year), the candidate is advised to attempt JEE in 2011 or later.
(vii) The decision of the Joint Admission Board of JEE-201 0 regarding the eligibility of any applicant shall be final.

## Ranking Procedure for IIT JEE 2010

Ranking
Only those candidates who attempted both Paper-I and Paper-II will be considered for the ranking. Marks in Chemistry in JEE will be equal to marks in Chemistry section of Paper-I plus marks in Chemistry section of Paper-II. Similar procedure will be followed for Mathematics and Physics. The sum of the marks obtained in the individual subjects in JEE will be the aggregate mark for the candidate.
The average of the marks scored by all such candidates will be computed for each of the three subjects. These will be the Minimum Qualifying Marks for Ranking (MQMR) in the individual subjects.
Based on the MQMR in the individual subjects as well as the aggregate marks in the examination, a Common Merit List (CML) will be prepared without any relaxed criteria, such that the number of candidates in this list is equal to the total number of seats available in all the participating institutes put together. The aggregate marks scored by the last candidate in the CML will be the CML cut-off score (CCS).
Next, the merit list of the OBC candidates will be prepared. If the number of OBC candidates in the CML is equal to or more than 1.4 times the number of available OBC seats, then the OBC merit list will contain all these candidates.
In case the number of OBC candidates qualified in the CML is less than 1.4 times the number of available OBC seats, then relaxation (maximum of 10%) to the individual MQMR as well as to the CCS will be applied, and an OBC merit list will be prepared, in which the number of candidates will be at most 1.4 times the number of available OBC seats.
By applying 50% relaxation to the individual MQMR as well as to the CCS, separate merit list for SC, ST and PD candidates will be prepared. The number of candidates in each of these lists will be, at most 1.4 times the number of available seats in the respective categories.
While preparing the merit lists, if a candidate belongs to more than one category/ subcategory of relaxed norms, then he/she for the purpose of ranking shall be considered in all the categories in which he/she qualifies.
There will be no separate waiting list for candidates.

## IIT-JEE likely to be abolished by 2013

New Delhi: The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) for admission to the Indian Institutes of Technology(IITs) is likely to become history from 2013 as the central government on Tuesday decided to work on a common entrance test for all governmentengineering colleges.

“By 2013, we should have in place a common system for common admission into professional institutions in the country,” Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Kapil Sibal said on Tuesday after meeting at least 20 school education boards from across the country.

Explaining the situation, HRD ministry joint secretary S.C. Khuntia said, “We will work for a commonentrance test for every stream. One examination for all engineering institutions, which means IITs will also follow it.”

“In that parameter, there should not be any separate IIT entrance,” Khuntia told the sources. “Lets see, we have to work in that direction.”

“As per the score of the entrance, selection will be made. Let’s say, the top rankers may go to IITs, the second bests will go to institutions which are a step below the IITs…so on,” Khuntia elaborated. “The system will benefit the students most.”

After the meeting with school boards, Sibal said, “We will be working towards a single entrance examination in 2013. We are setting up a task force for that.”

Explaining the situation, the minister said there will be single entrance for each stream. For example, admission to all medical courses may take place through oneentrance examination and all engineering admissions through another common entrance.

Sibal said the task force would decide how to go about it and look into issues like the weightage the Class 12 board examination result will have in the admission procedure.
