Maharashtra Govt & AICTE Accept JEEThe Maharashtra government has decided to accept the scores of the nation wide common engineering entrance exam JEE Main along with the marks of physics, chemistry and maths in class XII, dispelling finally the doubts in the minds of the students from the state of Maharashtra. The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), the country’s apex body that oversees all technical colleges, in its governing council meeting also adopted the decision to allow all its colleges accept the scores of the single test for admission to engineering programs.

Until now a keen engineering aspirant had to annually sit for close to 15 entrance exams, which caused not only the mental, physical stress but also financial burden on the parents for the payment of the exam fees. A single common nation wide entrance test was muted by Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), which met with resistance from IITs, but then accepted widely with some compromise formula.

The first JEE Main test shall be conducted on April 7 next year, after which JEE Advance test shall be conducted by Joint Admission Board (JAB) of IITs for top 150,000 toppers from JEE Main for admissions to the IITs with the condition that they also form part of top 20 percentile in their class 12 boards.
