Patna: Asking union HRD Minister Kapil Sibal to reconsider his move to change the existing eligibility criteria for the IIT joint entrance examination, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday said the new proposal will discriminate against students with poor socio-economic status.

In a letter faxed to Sibal, Kumar said, "Such proposals will favour students with elite background and discriminate against students with poor socio-economic status. Any examination system should be inclusive. Any change in the existing examination system will have far reaching consequences, which is unwarranted."

Sibal has mooted a new proposal whereby a student will have to secure at least 80 per cent marks in the class 12 Board examinations in stead of 60 per cent currently required to sit for the IIT-JEE.

The Chief Minister said that students from backward regions will be the most affected by the new proposal.

"In the existing system, larger pool of students with different socio-economic background are able to appear in the entrance examination. This explains better performance of students from backward regions in the IIT examination," he added.

Hail Democracy! Anyways, I saw the news just now. Sibal said there is no new fixed cut-off yet, "80%" was just an example. The IIT council will decide the cut-off. I hope they make a sane and sound choice and keep it not above 65%
