An important meeting will be conducted on 6th of October 2015 to start a discussion on a proposal to increase the quota of students appearing for JEE Advance. All the students appearing for the exam want to get into IIT. Because of the limited number of seat, a lot of students are not able to fulfill their dream. There are a number of top colleges other than IIT, but IIT is the dream. The proposal goes on to state that this will increase the number of students from 1.5 lakh to 2 lakh. At the moment, 1.5 lakh students are selected for the second stage selection process which is JEE Advanced. This decision can raise the tuition fee, but that fee will be 100 % interest-free student loan.
An IIT director in favor of anonymity stated that “the number of seats available at the IITs has increased considerably as new IITs have also come into existence. But, over the past three years, only 1.5 lakh students could make it to the IIT-JEE (advanced) examination. We wanted to ensure that more students could take the competitive examination as seats have remained vacant even this year, IITs, on the other hand, are mulling holding a single entrance test by reverting back to the old format as the existing format is proving to be “cumbersome” and “time-consuming.”
In the same lines, an NIT director again in favor of anonymity stated that the model has already been accepted by the NITs where these institute charge around Rs 70,000 annually. With the implementation of the funding mechanism, the fee could double. From 2016 onwards, the decision can be implemented, but still there is no official word on it.
There are plenty of UPTU colleges which are great for engineering. Register with Embibe to learn of the affiliated colleges with UPTU.
