You know what. For once, I agree with the Congress. Actually more than agree with it. Let us ban the JEEs. No, seriously. Let us not just change them. Let us completely ban the JEEs because they are the root of all evil. (Proof: They are the root of money for most of their alumni, and hence the root of inflow of money into India from NRIs as precursors of the IT boom- and we all know what money is the root of.) But it's not just the money. As most of our media, and part of the blogverse has jumped in to prove, the IITs are the source of all our problems. Pliss to explain.
First of all, the JEE screws up your school life. Quite obviously. Most students spend almost all their time in studying for the exam for 2 years (or many more) practicing problems they shall never even see again. You know, if the JEE wasn't there, your parents wouldn't be behind you to study for the AIEEE or the PMPD or a few decades ago, the IAS exam. No. Your parents would simply let you watch TV all evening, play Gilli-Danda and get 40% on your finals. And anyway, we can skip board exams these days.
