JEE Mains Latest News
The Indian Naval Academy is going to implement a new method to select the students from the entrance test. From now onwards the selection of candidates will be made through Joint Entrance Exam, i.e., JEE (Mains). Currently, the Navy officials are looking for candidates who are capable of handling the state of art-warships, sensors and weapons.
Firstly, the Indian Navy had implemented the process to select the aspirants with B.Tech qualification apart from traditional military and leadership skills when they graduated from the Indian Naval Academy in Kerala.
And from now onwards the whole process changed, the officials will shortlist the candidates who want the join the force through 10+2 B.Tech cadet entry scheme will be purely based on JEE (Mains) ranks. And the ranks should have to obtain through All India Joint Entrance exam which is conducted for admission into various engineering colleges.
Consequently, the Physics, Chemistry and Maths percentage obtained in Class XII will be no longer valid for this scheme. Only the rank obtained in JEE (Mains) will be taken into consideration. “Different state examination boards have gone berserk in awarding high marks in Class XII. We were finding the quality of candidates coming for the SSB (services selection board) interview or training very uneven,” said a senior officer.
He also added that “The JEE (Main) ranks, which the CBSE has agreed to share with us, will be a better benchmark. With the government approving the move, youngsters will have to appear for the JEE (Mains) in 2017 to be eligible for the January 2018 course at INA.”
In this scheme, first are the naval cadets who undergo three-year course at tri-service National Defence Academy at Kadakwasla in Pune after clearing the UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) and SSB (Service Selection Board) interview.
After one year Intensive training at Indian Naval Academy (INA), the selected candidates will be commissioned as Officers with B.Tech degrees. Then there will be around 110 cadets who directly joined in the four-year B.Tech programme after clearing the UPSC exams in two batches every year.
Under the third scheme which is referred as largest scheme, around 120 cadets will be shortlisted for the SSB interview only on the rank obtained in the JEE (Mains) exam.
