The sources informed that the statistical experts from ISI Kolkata through analysis of Class 12 marks of various boards have concluded that the marks scored across the boards can not be compared as there was hardly any correlation among the marks scored by the candidates from the various boards.
Hence, they have discarded normalization as well as any Percentile (Rank) based Scheme, as used in DST’s Innovation of Science Pursuit for Research (INSPIRE) which unlike JEE is not competitive.
Combining 12th standard marks in the selection merit will bring the same 100% cut-off fiasco as recently witnessed by DU, as there are many boards, which will start inflating their marks, in such a way so as to neutralize the normalization impact. There does not exist any effective mechanism to normalize the marks, as was witnessed in BITS Pilani, where there were 70% students from a single board despite the normalization.
STUDENTS MOVING TO 12 ARE AT A BIGGER LOSS
