A common engineering entrance examination was was first proposed by the Ministry of Human Resource Development in February 2010 as "a common system for common admission into professional institutions in the country". On of the names proposed was Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test (ISEET). It was meant as a replacement for the multitude of existing exams, but most specifically the Indian Institute of Technology Joint Entrance Examination (IIT-JEE) and the All India Engineering Entrance Examination.] The first-year version of the exam was planned to cover admissions to centrally-funded institutions, including the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs), Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research (IISERs) and some deemed universities. Per the decision of the ministry on 20 May 2012, the exam is to be introduced starting in 2013. Some state governments have already announced they will not join the exam, at least not for the first year, until doubts, mainly about the languages in which the exam will be made available, are cleared. The proposal also received strong opposition from the All India IIT Faculty Federation (AIIITFF) and the Indian Institutes of Technology alumni association, which stated concerns about the loss of the autonomy of IITs in their admission process. in 18 June 2012, a more specific format was proposed by a joint meeting of the councils of IITs, NITs and IIITs. Per this proposal, the exam will be called Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) and will be made of two parts, JEE-Main and JEE-Advanced. Two distinct "patterns of admission" will be used. For IITs, an average of the marks from Class XII Board exams and JEE-Main will be used for screening, allowing only a fixed number of candidates to be considered for admission. Ranking between these candidates will be based entirely on JEE-Advanced, the format of which will be decided by the joint admission board of IITs. For other institutions, the rankings will give 40% weight to Class XII Board exams, 30% to JEE-Main and 30% to JEE-Advanced.
Two of the IITs, IIT Kanpur and then IIT Delhi, have voiced strong objections to the common examination, and have announced that if the change takes place, they will conduct their own admittance exams. It would be up to each institution or groups of institutions or state agencies to conduct counselling and admission. Ministry wants to bring change in the current education system to give relief to students by introducing a common entrance test for all these technical institutions inspite of multiple tests as there are around 15 lakh engineering aspirants across the country and over 150 entrance tests are conducted for admission to these institutes.But, this requires the state consent to the proposal for its implementation all over the country, sources said. A meeting of the state education ministers on the issue is scheduled on February 22. "At the meeting, the states will be urged to deliberate on the issue and take a view on the implementation of the recommendations of the Ramasami Committee," sources added. ISEET, the Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test will be successor to the JEE and AIEEE. This new SAT-style exam will come into force in 2013. It will do away with multiple entrance examinations and reduce the stress levels of students. ISEET will have two parts, Main and Advance, each of three hours duration. Both tests will be given on the same day, between 10 am and 5 pm. ISEET 2013 will be held in either March or April. ISEET will be objective-type exam and will test comprehension, critical thinking and logical reasoning. Its advance level will test problem-solving ability in basic science subjects. Both the tests together will indicate a candidates scholastic level and aptitude for science and engineering. Class XII board performance will have a weightage of not less than 40 percent and the combined weightage of ISEET Main and Advance will not be more than 60 percent, however the weightage given to Board scores can go up to 100 percent. Each state government or institute will be able to decide the specific weight it gives to Board, Main and Advance exam scores. A committee headed by Dr T Ramasami, secretary in the Department of Science & Technology, has demonstrated with the help of the Indian Statistical Institute that school scores across various Boards can be normalized through a statistical process. ISEET will be conducted by CBSE. Further modalities will be worked out by an academic group headed by the director of IIT, Kanpur.
