Dear Parents and Students,
Note: This message is meant as specific information for Grade 11 and 12 students, and as general important information for Grade 9 and 10 students.
Greetings from Knowledge Planet!
We are sure most of our 12th Grade students are eagerly waiting to ace CBSE/ISC Boards and Entrance Exams in the coming year and with new beginning of 2017, Let us all make a strong resolution to overcome all challenges and achieve pinnacle of success in the most challenging exams to come. We would like to remind you all again about some of the most significant changes that have occurred during this year of 2016 and what you can expect 2017 onwards.
As we were aware that till this year i.e 2016, admissions into top engineering colleges were based on 60% weightage on IIT JEE (Main) Entrance Exam scores and 40% weightage on Board exam scores (Grade 12). THIS IS NO LONGER VALID. In the year of 2016, Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt of India have made changes in this policy and informed us of below major developments in this regards:
Besides, for Medical College Admissions, placing NEET as the compulsory common entrance exam for admission in all Govt and Pvt Medical Colleges in India. Earlier admissions were allowed on Board Marks, but going forward it is no longer permitted, unless the child has cleared an entrance exam alongwith.
From the above points it is very clear that significance of Entrance Exams has significantly gone up from this year. The relevance of Board Exam Marks has become merely as an eligibility exam. And School Exam Marks will have ZERO role in helping you get Indian college admissions.
We advice students to strategize their academic preparation keeping in mind the above important factors.
We wish all of our students best of luck for all their future endeavors.
