Do you know DASA Admissions are through JEE Main from 2021?

What is DASA?

DASA is the most prestigious college admission scheme for NRI Students, under which NRI students are given the benefit of preferential allotment of seats in top NITs, IIITs etc. In order to qualify for DASA, a student must complete their 11th and 12th outside India. The best seats under DASA are about 400 seats and the best seats under CIWG (seats for Children of Indian workers in Gulf) are about 140 – there in intense competition even among NRI students to bag these best seats.

How is the admission under DASA decided?

DASA and CIWG admission is through entrance exams. Until 2020, admissions were on the basis of SAT Subject Tests. From the year 2021, admissions will be on the basis of JEE Main marks.

What does this mean for students?

SAT Subject Test is an easier exam as compared to JEE Main. Several students used to get the same marks in this exam. For an instance, there was less differentiation between a very bright student and an above average student. However, JEE Main will bring out the difference between students very clearly. It is very rare that NRI students will get exact same marks under JEE Main. Therefore, DASA & CIWG admissions will become more competitive. Moreover, since JEE Main is a more challenging exam, those students who have undergone intensive entrance preparation during Class 11 and 12, will have a huge advantage over students who have only done self study or gone for private tuitions.
