The first set of offers for the UG admissions based on JEE has been announced. For the general category, this closed at 251. The earlier offers had been made on KVPY ranks.
Some people have been asking why IISc is admitting students based on JEE. Though IITs and IISc have no world class faculty, IITs have always had world class (defined by the honorable minister as applicants who have cleared JEE or CAT) students but IISc did not even have these students. By admitting students through JEE, IISc is filling up this void.
