Bringing in much relief for the engineering aspirants, the JEE Main examination is to become mandatory for all technical institutes from 2018, so that the students don’t have to face multiple admission tests for seeking entry to the engineering colleges. As per the information received from the sources, the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) is in the discussion to make it compulsory for all technical institutions to accept JEE-Main scores for admitting students. On the other hand, the students seeking admission into the IITs will have to appear for the JEE-Advance, conducted by the Joint Admission Board (JAB) of the premier technical institutes after the JEE-Main.
However, the institutes will be given a freedom to choose whether they want to consider the 20% or 40% weightage of XII class scores along with their JEE Main scores to admit students.
