Patna: The Super 30 founder Anand Kumar on Thursday criticised IIT Council`s decision to give 20 per cent weightage to Class XII marks in the IIT-JEE entrance test as `hasty` and said that the measure will mar the prospect of students studying in the government schools.
The IIT Council`s decision to give 20 per cent weightage to Class XII marks in the IIT-JEE entrance test from next year is a hasty decision and will go against the poor, who don’t get opportunity to study in elite public schools,” he said.
