IITs to open door for Bangladeshi aspirants

Behold HSC examinees!
For those who already have given up hope to nail a slot at the top-tier engineering schools in the country due to limited number of seats, the Indian government brings you a chance to take even a better route from next year! From now on, aspiring Bangladeshi students who wants to study engineering, can take entrance test, commonly known as joint engineering examination (Advanced), for Indian top engineering schools in overseas test centres from next year, and if selected, they can even enroll at globally high-ranked Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs). At present, foreigners can only join IITs as exchange students. The details of the plan are yet to be revealed but the Hindustan Times (HT) reported quoting sources in the Indian Human Resources Development (HRD) Ministry, which oversees the tests and selection process, that the entrance exams will take place in Saarc countries except Pakistan and a number of countries in Africa. The ministry had in January decided that IITs would offer some seats to foreign students on supernumerary basis, which means seats will be added to accommodate overseas students. To get the plan going, former JEE (Advanced) chairpersons will visit schools in the target countries to gauge students’ interest in IITs, which enjoy a good standing globally. “Fieldwork for the examinations in the countries will start by August,” HT quoted a HRD ministry official as saying. There is a fierce competition to get into IITs in India though. More than 1m aspirants appeared for the JEE main examination this year. The outreach programme will be conducted in Saarc countries, Ethiopia, Singapore and Dubai. “An outreach programme informing about the IITs, their strength, and the common entrance exam will be taken up by the Indian missions working in close conjunction with the IITs,” the ministry official said while talking to HT.
