'How is ISEET 2013 different from the IIT-JEE?
For students aspiring to study at the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology, performance in the ISEET 2013 will be crucial to admission
Held by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt of India, the Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test (ISEET) is a nationwide entrance exam that will test class 12 students for their skills in comprehension, logical and critical reasoning among others.
The exam which comprises Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Main and JEE Advanced will be held for the first time on April 7, 2013 and June 2, 2013 respectively.
For the benefit of our readers, we'd organised an online chat on October 25, where Vivek Gupta, co-founder and director, Plancess Edusolution Pvt Ltd addressed reader queries related to the entrance exam and offered advice on how students can optimise their preparation and score better.
For those who missed the live chat, here's the unedited transcript:

kkk asked, Sorry VIVEK the 1.5 lakh cut-off for writing JEE ADVANCED is not dependent on Board marks. It's purely dependent on JEE mains Score. After you clear this cut-off you are eligible to write JEE Advanced. if you clear JEE Adv then you need to prove to the IITs that you are in the top 20 percentile of your BOards for admisssion into IITs. There is no 40% weighatge criteria for IIT admissions
Vivek Gupta answers, To appear in JEE Advanced, you have to be in Top 1.5 lac of the result which you obtained from JEE Mains and Boards ie 60 percent jee Mains Score & 40 per cent boards score. After that they will check for Top 20 per cent in the respective Boards..
