According to Kapil Sibal the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology of the country will prepare questions papers for the ISEET 2013 entrance exam. This is the first time when the government has decided to hold a common entrance test for all IITs, NITs of the country rather than conducting individual tests for them. Central Board of Secondary Education will take care of management and also conduct the entrance test.
HRD Ministry want to replace the existing exam like AIEEE and IIT-JEE by ISEET. Both the exams are conducted by CBSE for engineering college admission. JEE exam is conducted by IITs for UG and Integrated PG engineering courses for admission in IITs only. This aspiring exam is going to replace all state level entrance exams too for engineering courses.
The ISEET 2013 Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test
ISEET will have two parts
Main and Advance
Each test is 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.
1) Structure of ISEET Main Exam This exam will be in objective multiple choice type modes. The exam will test candidates comprehension, critical thinking and logical reasoning.
2) Structure of ISEET Advance Test: This will test candidates problem solving ability in basic science subjects. The performance of the candidate in two tests together will indicate his scholastic level and aptitude for science and engineering programmers.
Some states are not happy with this change and not willing to accept this exam. They said that states conduct the exam in regional language, but this ISEET exam will be held only in Hindi or in English. This will create problem for those students who do not know both the languages. The States of Tamil Nadu, Himachal Pradesh, Odessa, Pondicherry and West Bengal asked for some more time to study the proposal in detail. However, the ministry wants to reach up to some conclusion over this proposal within two months.
