Patna, June 27 (IANS) The IIT Council's move to give 20 percent weightage to Class 12 board marks is a hasty decision, Anand Kumar, founder of 'Super 30', which provides free coaching to Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) aspirants, said Wednesday.
This decision will go against poor students, who do not get the opportunity to study in elite schools, he said here.
Even Class 12 results are mired in controversy due to use of unfair means in examinations and manipulation to ensure good results, said Kumar, who coaches students from poor families to crack the IIT entrance test.
He said the decision had come as a dampener for students preparing for IIT-JEE.
Suddenly they realise that school results are also important. The IIT Council should have implemented it from 2014 at least to give the students time, he said.
