IITs Might Reduce Syllabus For JEE Advanced 2020 With Changes In Exam Format

Last updated on July 13th, 2020 at 07:13 am

This year’s JEE Advanced has been postponed twice similar to the JEE Main 2020. The scores of JEE Main decide whether the student is eligible to attempt the JEE Advanced 2020. In lieu of the COVID-19 pandemic situation, Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) are considering reducing the syllabus for the JEE Advanced 2020 and also making changes in the exam format. The Joint Admission Board (JAB) will hold a meeting for reviewing these proposals. As per the reports, this meeting is going to be held in the next week.

IIT-Delhi is the conducting authority for JEE Advanced 2020. V Ramgopal Rao, the Director of IIT-D has confirmed that a review meeting is scheduled for the coming week. The proposals will be suggested for exam format, JEE Advanced Exam Syllabus, and various social distancing norms to be followed amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Once JAB agrees, the decisions will be made. All the proposals are for JEE Advanced 2020.

Previously, it was also reported that IITs are considering to remove the eligibility criteria of board exams or top 20 percentile criteria. Since CBSE and ICSE boards have cancelled their board exams, this proposal is more likely to be implemented for JEE Advanced 2020. As per the JEE Advanced 2020 Eligibility, students of class 12th must have scored at least 75% or must be in the top 20 percentile scorers of the board exams.

Why Propose Reduction in Syllabus?

CBSE has reduced the syllabus for their 2021 curriculum. This will be taken as a precedent and NTA might come forward with a reduction in the syllabus for JEE Main 2020 and NEET 2020 as well. Both the exams have syllabus based on the class 11th and 12th syllabus. However, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it is getting impossible for students to opt for classroom education due to the risk of infection. Moreover, the JEE Main Exam Syllabus is vaster than the CBSE curriculum even after a similar reduction. In order to cover major topics, students have to refer to separate study material for beating the competitive environment of JEE Main.

In such a case, it is better to reduce the curriculum along with changes in the exam pattern to make it convenient for the students to prepare for the exam with much ease. With the current scenario of online learning, it is getting difficult to convey the right kind of learning with proper response from the students. This is already hampering the quality of education.

JEE Main January 2021 is also likely to get postponed due to the shift in the academic calendar. Although, there is no official announcement from NTA yet. Currently, their main focus is on conducting JEE Main 2020 successfully.
