Now, JEE (Main) to be considered for an entry scheme into Navy, not class XII

News Update

NEW DELHI: The Navy is going hi-tech with a vengeance. With state-of-the-art warships, weapons and sensors being progressively inducted by the force, it wants “sea warriors“capable of handling the intricate challenges of the massive technological revolution under way.

First, the Navy implemented plans to ensure virtually all its new officers have B Tech degrees, apart from the traditional military and leadership skills, when they graduate from the Indian Naval Academy in Kerala

navy-ships-bccl

And now, it has been decided that the short-listing of candidates aspiring to join the force through the 10+2 B Tech cadet entry scheme will be based “only on JEE (Main) ranks” achieved in the all-India joint entrance exam conducted for admission into different engineering colleges. Consequently, PCM (physics, chemistry, maths) percentage obtained in the Class XII board exams will not be valid for this scheme any longer.”Different state examination boards have gone berserk in awarding high marks in Class XII. We were finding the quality of candidates coming for the SSB (services selection board) interview or training very uneven,” said a senior officer.

“The JEE (Main) ranks, which the CBSE has agreed to share with us, will be a better benchmark. With the government approving the move, youngsters will have to appear for the JEE (Main) in 2017 to be eligible for the January 2018 course at INA,” he added.

As was earlier reported by TOI, the first direct-entry batch of BTech officers passed out from the INA in May 2013. Since then, the Navy has been tweaking the three officer entry schemes.

First are the naval cadets who undergo the three-year course at the tri-service National Defence Academy (NDA) at Kadakwasla (Pune) after clearing the UPSC exam and SSB interview. These cadets, who number 78 every year, get commissioned as officers with B Tech degrees after another year of intensive training at the INA. Then, there are the around 110 cadets who directly joined the INA for the four-year B Tech programme after clearing UPSC exams in two batches every year. Under the third and largest scheme, around 120 cadets will now be shortlisted for the SSB interview only on the basis of their JEE (Mains) ranks.

CBSE board exams for Class 10 likely to be brought back, says Prakash Javadekar

Govt thinking of re-introducing class X board exam: Prakash Javadekar
However, any such move will only take place starting the 2017-18 academic years, and not the ongoing one

37360-wtdmtyjdsd-1467902829.jpg

NEW DELHI: Government is thinking of re-introducing compulsory class X board examination but if such a decision is taken, it will only be applied from the next academic year, HRD minister Prakash Javadekar on Thursday said.

“I want to start CBSE tenth board exams because all other students, other than CBSE are appearing for Board exams. But for CBSE, it is an option. So why?,” Javadekar said while speaking at an interaction organised by FICCI.

The minister added that he got a lot of queries including from mediapersons, who also said they have children studying in CBSE schools and with March approaching they would need time to prepare.

“I said whatever I may change this year, will be implemented in 2017-18 cycle, not this year,” Javadekar clarified.

Javadekar said that the government is also planning to bring in a new system under which educational institutions are regulated.

He added that apart from NAAC ratings, the ranking of the educational institution in the HRD ministry’s NIRF rankings will be taken into consideration to grade them.

IIT JEE exam to be held in Nepal from 2017

Students in Nepal can now take the entrance test for the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) in Kathmandu, to pursue graduate and post-graduate courses.

This was announced by President Pranab Mukherjee on Thursday while addressing a seminar: ‘Nepal and India: Exploring New Vistas’. The president is currently on a three-day visit in Kathmandu.

“India is happy to help Nepal with its human resource development. Our commitment is reflected in the grant of around 3,000 scholarships to Nepalese students every year, providing opportunities to study in Nepal and in India. We offer more than 250 scholarships annually for Government and non-Government employees of Nepal for training in technical institutes in India,” the president said.

“I am also very happy to announce that from 2017 onwards, Nepali students will have the opportunity to pursue graduate and post-graduate courses in Indian Institutes of Technology on a regular basis. For this, our Institutes of Technology will open their entrance examinations to Nepali students. Aspirants would have the option to write these examinations in Kathmandu,” he added.

The president also said that India recognizes the importance of water resources in the accelerated development in Nepal for which post-graduate scholarships for courses in hydel power and water resources management at IIT, Roorkee, have been offered to Nepali engineers and experts this year.

IITs to increase student intake from next academic session

KOLKATA: The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) are set to implement a 5% increase in their total student intake from the next academic session. The country’s premier engineering and tech schools have also decided to admit foreign students by up to 10% of the revised figure, over and above the total student strength.

This increased number is to be absorbed by all 23 IITs, but several of the older institutes have said they wouldn’t be able to immediately increase their intake with their current infrastructure.

iit
As of now, it looks like most of the increase would happen in the relatively newer IITs.

The decision to increase the number of students -from 10,572 in the current academic session to 11,100 the next year -was taken at a recent meeting of the Joint Admission Board (JAB), which is the highest decision-making body of IIT-JEE (Advanced). The meeting was attended by the chairpersons of all IITs, headed by organi zing committee chairman Prem Bisht of IIT Madras.

This is being seen as a step towards implementing the decision, approved by the IIT Council this August, to increase the total number of seats to 1,00,000 by 2020. The proposal was given by HRD minister Prakash Javadekar, who also chairs the council.

Most of the older IITs, however, want to retain their current seat strength. “We are in no position to admit extra students despite the government wanting each IIT to increase intake,” said a senior IIT-Kharagpur official. “Most of the seat increase has taken place in the newer IITs, which offer more courses than last year and have expanded their intake.” A senior IIT-Kgp official said, “At the older IITs, there is a serious space crunch. Even if we can build accommodation, classrooms and other infrastructure from government funding, it takes many years to build world class laboratories which offer state-of-the-art facilities to students. And we would not like to compromise on providing quality education.”

As of now, IIT-Kharagpur has the highest student capacity (1,360), followed by IIT-BHU (1,090) and IIT-Roorkee (1,065). Among the newer IITs, the most seats are set to be increased by the newer IITs, like the ones at Bhubaneshwar, Patna, Jammu and Jodhpur. “The exact seat distribution will be clear once the senates -the highest administrative decisionmaking bodies of each IIT -give the green light,” said another senior IIT official.

 
 In another decision, the IITs will give admission to up to 10% more foreign students if they make the cut in the JEE (Advanced) test. “It means roughly another 1,000 students of foreign origin may find a seat in IITs over and above the 11,100 figure,” a source said.
 
The IIT Council has also approved day-boarding scholars, or the non-residential admission format, added the source.
 Keeping in mind the seat increase, JAB has also approved an increase in the number of hopefuls who can take the JEE (Advanced) test -from 2 lakh to 2.2 lakh.

Class 10 board exams likely to return from 2018

NEW DELHI: The government is set to announce the reintroduction of the Class 10 board exam for students affiliated with the Central Board of Secondary Education(CBSE), India’s largest national school test-conducting body.
The announcement is likely to be made by HRD minister Prakash Javadekar on October 25 and will be his first major decision after taking over as HRD minister in early July. The Class X boards are likely to be back from 2018.

Reasons for reintroduction of the Class X Board examinations include feedback from states and representative organizations of parents and teachers that doing away with the exam along with the no-detention policy was affecting academic standards, even though studies indicated that the number of drop-outs has reduced.
The board exam was seen — by those arguing for its retention — as a means of preparing students for the more important school-leaving Class XII tests.
The no-detention policy was felt to be reducing the authority of teachers and prompting schools to merely shuffle an under-performing student from one class to the next.

There was large number of government school students failing in class XI as evaluations became more demanding at the senior school level. These factors seem to have prompted the government to consider amending the decisions.

Touted as a Diwali gift in the HRD ministry, the decision will be made public after the meeting of the Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE). State education ministers who are to attend the CABE meeting have been intimated about restoration of Class 10 board examination. Several of them have been saying that scrapping of class X board has not delivered the anticipated benefits.

As the formula for “no-detention” seems complex, “it is for states to decide if they want to detain a child in class 5, 6 or 7 or in all of these classes,” a source said. But a re-test will be made mandatory for students who fail from class VI to VIII. A CABE committee headed by Rajasthan education minister Vasudev Devnani has also ruled in favour of removing the provision of “no-detention” and recommended re-tests. However, NCERT is opposed to removal of the “no-detention” policy.

While restoration of the class 10 board examination does not need a legislative intervention, a change in the no-detention policy does require an amendment in section 16 of the Right to Education Act.

The issue of “no-detention” was also considered by the Supreme Court, which had ruled in its favour. In the Society for Un-aided Private Schools of Rajasthan vs Union of India case, the SC had said holding back in a class or expulsion may lead to large number of dropouts, defeating the purpose of the act, which was to “strengthen the social fabric of democracy and to create a just and humane society”. The decisions were taken in a meeting on Wednesday.
