Students in Maharashtra will have to take only one test,JEE,for admission to engineering institutions,including IITs and NITs,from the academic year 2014-15. The state government accepted on Wednesday a Ministry of Human Resource Development model that replaces IIT-JEE and AIEEE.

JEE (main) scores and marks obtained in physics,chemistry and mathematics during the Class XII examination would be given 50 per cent weightage each. Students,however,will have to secure 50 per cent aggregate in Class XII to be eligible for the entrance.

Marks of students from across boards — CBSE,ICSE and HSC — would be calculated on the basis of the normalised percentile system developed by Indian Statistical Institute.

To reduce stress of multiple entrance exams,a common entrance test or JEE (main) will be conducted from 2013 for admission to all centrally funded technical institutions. A notification to this effect was issued by the Ministry of Human Resource Development recently.
