Class XII Board Marks normalisation procedure favors CBSE students ?

JEE Main and Class XII Board Exam Moarks Normalisation

Does the Class XII Board Marks normalisation procedure favors CBSE students ?

The formula adopted to convert JEE Main examinees’ board marks into a nationally comparable score for the purpose of Admissions to Engineering Colleges (NITS, IIIts and other top Colleges accepting JEE Main Scores) has been accused of favouring CBSE students over those from state boards, reports the Telegraph

During selections to the National Institutes of Technology, a candidate’s board score receives a 40 per cent weightage and their JEE Main score a 60 per cent weightage. Since all state boards are not equally generous in awarding marks, a method has been worked out to award a nationally comparable “normalised” score to each candidate.

However, several mathematicians have argued that this method, which ties a candidate’s normalised board score to how well students from their board have performed in the JEE Main, is potentially unfair.

 

The idea behind the adopted formula is to use the JEE Main itself as a standard to compare the various boards against one another.

It was found that if a CBSE student and another from any state board had the same board percentile rank and identical JEE Main marks, the CBSE student would have ended up with a higher final score.

The formula was worked out by a committee made up by CBSE chairman Vineet Joshi, NIT Delhi director Sandeep Sancheti, IIT Kanpur teacher Dheeraj Sanghi and a few experts from the Indian Statistical Institute, Calcutta.

CBSE chairperson Joshi said the formula was decided as “the middle path” between two others that were proposed. “This is the best possible formula,” he said.

    From the Normalisation Procedure as understood by me, it seems that the students who score well in the JEE Main exam, while not scoring too well in the Boards, are being favoured.
    Rather, it should be the other way round, as I had read earlier, from the conceptualisation stage of considering the Board marks.

    I believe, the concept behind this was that the students need to focus on their boards also, insteading of neglecting the boards, & the school studies, and just devoting all their time and energy coachings and focussing only on the JEE.

    When 60% weightage has already been given to the the aggregate marks (A0) obtained by the student in JEE- Main, why are we again considering the JEE- Main aggregate marks corresponding to percentile (P) at the All- India level (B1) and also, the JEE- Main aggregate marks corresponding to percentile (P) among the set of aggregate scores obtained in the JEE- Main by the students of that board (B2) ?

    Does this not mean that we are giving all weightage to JEE- Main aggregate marks only ?

    Decision on Jee(main) ranking is partially correct. I think we can not take marks of any board as weitage of 40% for Jee ranking because some Boards are having semester system examination and some are having one year(class XII syllabus)examination and on the other side some Boards gives loose marking and some stricts on marks.
    But giving the 20% weightage to Jee(main) percentile out of 40% is also NOT correct. The whole 40% weightage should be given to Boards percentile.

    This is very bad idia because those students who are belongs to bords who have less no. Of talanted students have take profit

    Hello, here is some FAQs answered by CBSE regarding the Normilasation Procedure and Formula for JEE Main Ranking calculation with respect to Class XII Board Maarks. Check out http://goo.gl/dRJPm

    There are instances of mass copying and free copying with lax supervisors in many test centers of Board Examinations conducted by States. In such situation, how does a candidate who writes sincerely and without copying, is protected for his proper ranking?

    The whole idea of giving weightage to Board marks in JEEmain ranking is fundamentally wrong. At the most, like for JEE-advanced, the rule can be that those who are in the top 40 percentile are eligible to enter NITs and other institiutions which take JEE-main rank into cognisance for admissions. Even in such case, some students in the border – like say in 40 percentile or 39 percentile position, may get affected by copying, mass copying, casual copying, invigilator-assisted copying etc. – all these happen in almost every Board exam., as revealed by students who write these exams year after year.

    What the hell is this…A person who has scored 200 in jee nd 90% in boards will not get admission in a good college.This system is really disgusting and there is a need to stop it.Board scorers are real crammers.What is the need to prepare for competition.Prepare for only boards and you will get good rank.Comparing percentile of boards and jee mains is frustrating.It is damn hard to score in jee than in boards.Boards marks go to crammers.A jee topper works so hard for 2 yrs to get good score whereas for a board student, to get good marks,it is only a matter of 1 year or less.I am worried that now good institutes would be filled with crammers rather than creative students.There is a need to stop this system now.Maybe even this year it needs a modification.

  7. santanu dey says:

    A student with 250 marks in JEE (mains) but only 91% marks in AP Board will get much poorer rank (40000 around) than a guy with 160 JEE marks but 97% board marks(10000 around).The entire idea is revolting.

  8. prachi says:

    cheating ki gyi h marks m. because they knows that poor students can’t aforrd fee. due to this reason they taking chance of those student whose background is good than others. so cheatersssss

  9. prachi says:

    omr sheet k liye notice to send krdiya but sheet to dikhai hi nai. dont worry guys jinko chance mila hai na wo talented nai hai. unka future or money dono waste hone hai ab. iit wale cheater hai or paise khane wale bhi hai, khandan mrega salo ka

    According to me Cbse is doing right.By this new rule of 60:40.The students having good marks in Board will get advantage.

    wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I screwed my jee mains and ended up with a score 134 but my percentage is 96.6 in class xii cbse means 99.98 percentile i.e 80.4+138=218.4 and hence my rank will be around 8500-9000 whoompyyyyyyy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    han kutte khus ho ja par 294 to sapne mein bhi nahin la sakta aur mere 94%
    just 13 number tere se kam.

    My Son got 165 in mains and has a 98.36 percentile in tamilnadu state board qualifying exam.
    Surprisingly, this contributed only 139.66 in the board marks component, bringing down the total to 154.
    A similar performance by another student in CBSE, with a 98.8 percentile has contributed 210 marks in the b component (considered for 40%). That student has 170 marks in JEE main with an AIR of 12000. But my son gets an AIR of 30000!!!
    We are in Tuticorin where there are no CBSE schools, and inspite of studying in CBSE till 10th had to switch to stateboard. My conclusion here is that my son is being penalised because 1) he had to study in the stateboard 2) students in the state board performed extremely badly??
    Any explanation for this discrepancy pls….
    [BTW, my son had his eyes on doing research in maths in Chennai Mathematical Institute (CMI) and he has got admission there with scholarship, thank god!!!] ….but I am unable to digest this finding.

    lets change the name of NITs to National Institute of Crammers & Cheats. Most students who get there will be crammers as the best usually end up in IIT. The second best who dont cram will go to a state college. placements: The ones who want dumb crammers can get them from NIT the good ones will b elsewhere unlike the past. good for all state colleges who where other wise getting left overs. Nobody has thought of 2012 repeaters to whom this has been most unfair@Sachin

    I D Akhil I have jee main marks 160 my rank is 59000 , why this normalisation system introduced , it is helping norhern states it’s not me

  20. MT says:

    @Nitin

    Please check. It is the other way round. In fact, a lower percentile in Board will pull down the composite score.

  21. MT says:

    @Prabha
    Congratulations. Sometimes third force decides for us that will be lucky.

    Unfortunately, the second component is quite weird and can be quite damaging depending on which Board one comes from. It is counter logical. While IIT JEE is all about finding the cream, the second part ( weightage to Board percentile) tries to position the student, hypothetically, back in the same mass-basket that the student is trying to separate himself from.

    I am surprised as to how IITs have decided to mix apples and oranges to derive the sweetness-value of a fruit.
