The National Institutes of Technology (NITs) on Wednesday resolved to give 40% weightage to class XII board results for entrance to their undergraduate programme from the next academic session. The announcement was made by R A Malshekar, chairman of the standing committee of NITs, after a meeting chaired by HRD minister Kapil Sibal.

Students seeking admission to these institutes would not have to appear for the JEE Advance test as had been proposed earlier. Aspirants for the central engineering institutes will appear for one exam that will have 60% weightage. The formula worked out is very simple – 40 per cent weightage to board results and 60% to the JEE Mains.

The 40% weightage to the board results will be given after the process of normalization of marks of the state board. A committee, including NIT directors, CBSE chairman and other experts, will look into the issues relating to normalization of class XII Board marks on percentile basis. Officials said the committee would look into validation of the formulas proposed for normalization of marks with the respective board results.
