Students qualifying only the JEE Main, irrespective of the marks they have secured in Class 12 board exams, will be eligible for admission to NITs, IITs, SPAs, and other CFTIs said Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal.
Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ announced relaxation in admission criteria for NITs, IITs, SPAs, and centrally funded technical institutions (CFTIs) by waiving off the requirement of 75 percent marks in Class 12.
Earlier, only students who scored a minimum of 75 percent marks in the Class 12 board exams or in their qualifying examinations were eligible for admission to BE / BTech / BArch / BPlanning courses in NITs, IITs, and CFTIs.
"Considering the decision taken for IIT JEE (Advanced) and in line with the decision taken for the last academic year, it has been decided to waive off the 75% marks (in class 12 exam) eligibility criteria under Joint Entrance Examination (Main) for the next academic year 2021-2022 in respect of NITs, IITs, SPAs and other CFTIs, whose admissions are based on JEE (Main)," Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal tweeted.
The Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB) had last year relaxed norms for admissions into NITs and CFTIs.
NITs will admit undergraduate students based on their performance in JEE Mains. Earlier, along with the performance in JEE Mains, NITs used to demand either a 75 percent mark in the board examinations or a place in the top 20 percentile of their respective boards.
The Joint Entrance Examination Main (JEE Main) is a national level entrance exam held for admission to 31 National Institute of Technology (NITs), 25 Indian Institute of Technology (IITs), and 28 Government Funded Technical Institutes. JEE Main 2021 will be conducted four times from this year and the first JEE Main session is scheduled to be held in February. The application to JEE Main 2021 is underway and candidates can apply online through the JEE Main login window at jeemain.nta.nic.in.
The conducting body of IIT JEE Advanced, Joint Admission Board (JAB), has also relaxed the 75 percent eligibility criteria earlier. JEE Advanced qualifying candidates become eligible for admission to various undergraduate Engineering, Science, and Architecture courses in 23 IITs. Applicants to apply for JEE Advanced, however, have to qualify the JEE Main first.

As we are entering into a new academic session, we all are feeling the heat of competitive exams coming near. One of them is the KVPY Exam (Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana) to be held in November every year [Postponed to 31st January 2021 due to COVID-19].
The badge of being a KVPY Scholar is a prestigious one and it provides direct admission to top institutes like IISc and the various IISERs.
KVPY exam is at par with the IIT JEE entrance when it comes to the difficulty level. But there is no need to press the panic button now. You can clear the KVPY exam successfully if you prepare smartly.
Here we provide you with the tips and tricks for clearing the KVPY SA Exam(Round I) and at the same time will give you suggestions that will help you in preparation.
Before we go into the subject-wise analysis, it’s advisable that you should make yourself more or less equally adapt at all four subjects (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology).
You have to keep in mind that all four subjects are equally important and if you neglect any of them, you can say goodbye to your hopes of cracking the KVPY SA exam.
Subject-wise analysis for KVPY SA Examination:
Physics: Make sure that you are thorough with the class XI syllabus. The most important topics are Mechanics, Ray Optics, Electromagnetism. You should know the class XI level Mechanics properly.
We assume that Ray Optics and Electromagnetism is not there in your class XI syllabus. But there is no need to worry. The basic class X level knowledge in these two topics is enough.
The less important topics, that is – Thermodynamics, SHM, and Waves should preferably be completed from the class XI book.
Mathematics: You will need to know almost all the topics from class XI. Class X level of knowledge of Geometry is required. If you know the basics of Number Theory, it will help you a lot. Mental ability based questions that involve Algebra, Geometry are important.
Important chapters include Quadratic Equation, Progression, and Series, Permutations, and Combination, Basic Geometry. In Coordinate Geometry, Conics is NOT required.
Get ready to wrack your brain as you are going to face a lot of IQ-Based problems.
Chemistry: In brief, you need the knowledge of Physical Chemistry of Class XI level. The key chapters are Atomic Structure, Chemical Bonding, Chemical Energetics, Stoichiometry, and Gaseous State.
Class X level knowledge of Organic Chemistry is enough for you. Don’t worry about Inorganic Chemistry. Hardly any question comes from there. Even if you encounter an odd question from there, you will be able to solve it with basic Class X knowledge.
Biology: A basic Class X knowledge of Biology is enough.
In Fact, if you know the Class X syllabus pretty well, you can even score cent- percent marks in Biology. Just open your class X book and revise.
Last piece of advice for the KVPY examination:
Solve the previous year's question papers of KVPY rigorously. Find your loopholes, and work on them. Unlike IIT JEE, you are NOT going to face new types of problems every year in KVPY. So, if you have thoroughly practiced previous years' questions, then it helps immensely.
Finally, KVPY is just a test of your Analytical Skills and your Aptitude in Science.
Be calm and confident while appearing for the exam and don’t be stressed unnecessarily.
We hope these examination tips will help you in clearing the KVPY SA exam and becoming a proud KVPY scholar.
Best of luck with the exam!

Format 1: For subjects like Science
Heading → Subheadings → Mains Points
This format was used by the student who scored maximum marks in Science subject. This format is suitable for answering theoretical questions in CBSE 10th Science Board Exam 2021 (except 1 mark and 2 marks questions where only one word or one line is required). Students of Class 12th Science (having Physics, Chemistry, and Biology as one of their subjects) can also use this format.
Format 2: For subjects like Social Science
Introduction → Main Content (Important Terms & Dates are Underlined) → Conclusion
This format is suitable for answering theoretical questions of subjects like Social Science (i.e. History, Civics, Geography, etc). Besides format 1, this is another important format for writing answers to long answer type questions in CBSE Board Exam 2021. In this format, you can begin your answer with an introduction, followed by the main content and then a final conclusion. In the main content, you can underline important keywords as shown in the image given above.
Format 3: For subject like Mathematics
Given → To Prove or To Find → Formula & Main Steps → Final Answer
This format is best suited to answer questions of Mathematics subject. This format is also suitable for answering numerical problems of other subjects (like Physics, Chemistry, etc).
These are three important formats from CBSE Toppers’ Answer sheets. You can opt for any one of the above formats for writing good answers in CBSE Board Exams 2021.
2. Don’t Try to Solve Questions Sequentially
While analyzing answers sheets of CBSE Subject Toppers, we learned that some candidates sequentially attempted questions in the subject like Mathematics, whereas many candidates attempted questions sequentially in subjects like Hindi. No specific trends are observed when it comes to the order of attempts.
3. Write relevant and to the point answers
Analysis of answer sheets of high scoring students also shows that they answered to the point. Let's learn the meaning of "to the point answer" with the help of an example. Suppose you are asked the write the advantages of nuclear energy but you are also explaining what is nuclear energy besides writing advantages then you are wasting your time. You only need to answer whatever is asked in the question.
These are tips for writing good answers in the CBSE Board Exam 2021.
