T Ramasami Committee on reforms in IIT Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) has given report. The preview of report suggest to have a single entrance examination for admission to engineering course.

Decision has not been taken to implement it. It is decided that public opinion will be taken before implementation of IIT reform committee suggestion, for this IIT panel has decided t create a new website for collecting public views.

Till now  IIT Council decision for this implementation is yet to come as  a part of engineering entrance examination that would also be for admission to non-IIT engineering colleges.

Few IIT directors have raised queries about the methods suggested by Ramasami. Since 2008, Ramasami Committee is the fourth attempt to reform JEE. The  other Committee for IIT reforms are :

1.  First was an internal committee under V G Idichandy of IIT-Madras. He suggested scrapping of JEE, and considering Standard XII marks for IIT admission.

2.  In October 2009, IIT Council suggested increasing eligibility cutoff from the existing 60% to 80% in Standard XII.

3.  Committee of secretaries of department of science & technology, department of bio-technology and department of science and industrial research was set up to suggest IIT-JEE reforms.

  1. considering weighteg of xII standard marks is simply draining the talent of brilliant minds as securing good marks in 12th board exams is a child's play for one who is good at cramming skills. So this idea should be dropped.

  2. weighteg to 12 standard marks is a totaly rubbish idea as large number of centers in rural areas can be easily located as mass cheating centers how could prestigious exam of cointry like iit entrance can be based on this this is an agenda to avoid intelligent student indirectly

  3. it is a simple descion for witch committees are being set up just confusing students. how can result of u.p. education board can be equated with cbse .enterence test is in any way required to equate aspirent students for addmission to i.i.t or other engg. colleges
