MHRD Notification on IIT JEE AdvancedThe official notification released by the ministry of human resource development (MHRD) said the 1.5 lakh students who will qualify for the Joint Entrance Exam, JEE-Advanced test will include students from all categories, While faculty members are still not clear about the break-up, students from different reservation categories who are included under the reservation policy – SC, ST and OBC.

Admissions to IITs will be based only on category-wise All India Rank (AIR) in JEE-Advanced in each category, the notification stated. Usually, IITs follow 15% reservation for SC, 7 and a half% for ST and 27% for OBC candidates. However faculty members are not sure if they will divide 1.5 lakh into open category and reserved categories, or they would have some other mechanism for the cut-offs.

Since, weightage is also given to students’ performance in boards, the notification said the students who have appeared for their class XII in 2012 and wish to improve upon their performance can re-appear for their boards in 2013. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and the state boards would make appropriate arrangements to facilitate this through a special dispensation.
