The CBSE Boards and all other school education boards in india are asked to prepare top 20 percentile cut-off for Class 12 results to JEE Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) before June 10, 2017 and same details will be applied for setting the cut-off for the engineering exam.
The decision was taken in the meeting of Council of Boards of School Education in India , which includes all school education boards and the CBSE.
The decision was taken keeping in view of delay in seat allocation process. "IITs and other institutes which take admission through JEE Main score card have informed the COBSE about the problem they face during the admission process," said one of the officials in government
The seat allocation process can not start without class 12 scores since securing 75 per cent marks or being in the top 20 percentile of a school is an essential qualification for securing a seat in IITs, NITs and other institutes participating in JEE Main 2017.
According to a source “All the school boards along with CBSE Board have been asked by COBSE to produce the percentile cutoff list, which will be the qualifying marks for JEE Main 2017. The information will be used to prepare the cutoff list for engineering courses.”
The best part is that the boards, including CBSE, have agreed to provide the details by the middle of May. According to CBSE chairman RK Chaturvedi, CBSE is confident of releasing the results on time.
This year there was delay in CBSE Board Examination due to election in the starting week of March. CBSE Exams will start from 9th March 2017 and will end on 29th April 2017.
