A screening test for all aspirants followed by another test for selected candidates; and board exam marks removed from the admission equation are some suggestions made by the Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay (IIT-B) panel for the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE).

These suggestions are still being finalised. JEE is the entrance criterion to the IITs.

The HRD ministry had proposed, among other changes, including a candidate’s board exams marks based on a percentile score, as part of JEE reforms, from next year.

Following opposition from the senates of IIT-B, IIT-Delhi and IIT-Kanpur, the ministry asked individual IITs to draft their own proposals and debate them in their senates. The panel is also opposing the implementation of reforms from 2013. “All this will be debated in the senate,” said an IIT-B official. IIT-B director, Devang Khakhar, declined to comment.

IIT-Kanpur has also come up with a similar suggestion, of using the ministry’s proposed test as a screening process for candidates.
