Union HRD Minister, Kapil Sibal, will chair a meeting of IIT council, the highest decision making body of these elite institutes comprising IIT directors and heads of other educational bodies, deliberating on a resolution adopted by the IIT Joint Admission Board (JAB) which met here last Saturday. The resolution was adopted by the JAB after discussing a compromise formula which was supposedly floated by the HRD Ministry to the current impasse on the proposed nationwide single engineering entrance that met with the resistance from some of the IITs.

According the compromise formula, JEE Advance will be conducted after a time gap during which the result of the first part of the two tier exam, JEE Main shall be available and only top 1,50,000 who qualify in it be allowed to appear in JEE Advance. The JAB resolution has also stressed that admission to IITs be based only on rank achieved in the advance test, subject to the condition that the selected candidates are in the top 20 percentile of successful candidates of their Board exams.
