As part of the new IIT JEE 2013 entrance formula, the Council of Boards of School Education (COBSE) on Thursday decided to put up on its website the corresponding percentage that students from various boards need to make it to the top 20 percentile bracket. Only those who make it to this bracket will be eligible to appear for the IIT-advanced exam.


“We have decided that within 7-10 days, the state boards will put on public domain, the percentage required for a child to be in the top 20 percentile. This figure will also be available on the COBSE site,” COBSE president Vineet Joshi told HT.

Once the child knows the percentage, he can prepare for professional entry into IITs accordingly. “There will be just minor variations in this figure every year,” said Joshi, who is also chairman, CBSE.


The Council has a membership of 42 boards across the country. IIT had announced that only those candidates who are in top 20 percentile of his/her board will be eligible for IIT exam.


It was also decided that results of all boards should be declared by June 10.


Re-evaluation should be done by June 30.


The COBSE also decided that any student who is not satisfied with his board results can reappear for improvement next year. “This would be particularly helpful for all those who got around 60% this year and want to appear in IIT next year. He/she will be allowed to reappear in all the five subjects.”


A decision was also taken to introduce a common design of question papers across all the boards. “We will have a common design of papers for all boards for 11th class from 2013. From 2014, we plan to have a common designed paper for 12th class also. This will help bring uniformity across all boards.”
