But as the corona cases elevated in the country, parents got more concerned for their children. The CBSE then decided to conduct exams between july 1 to july 15 but concerned parents filed a plea in the supreme court amid the increase in the number of corona cases across the country. CBSE while considering the parents concern decided to declare the results on the basis of exam already conducted and to calculate it on an average basis with internal assessment marks of the remaining subjects.
students especially 12th pass outs were most concerned for their next step, but now they have some good news. IIT have relaxed the admission criteria for 2020 batch. Earlier students required atleast 75% to get eligible for IIT but now this criteria has been scrapped out by the the premier institute IIT.
According to new rule any student with any percentage is eligible for IIT. A student only needs to qualify the JEE MAINS since IITs will accept JEE rank holders irrespective of their 12th percentage. Followed by this NIT also scrapped the same the criteria, this premier institute will also only ask for 12th passing certificate and JEE rank for admissions. This news is a great relief for the students who were preparing for such premiere institutes but due to the current situation couldn’t do well in boards.
