New Delhi: The IITs and the HRD Ministry have agreed to a compromise formula over the joint entrance test row.
IIT Faculty Federation member, Professor SK Das told CNN-IBN they have proposed that top 20 per cent students of each board and advanced exam marks will be qualifying standard for preparing IIT merit list.
"We have worked out a compromise formula. We have proposed that main exam be entirely conducted and set by CBSE. Top 1.5 lakh students from this exam will then take advanced exam. It will be set for different date, not the same day," Das said.
