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 percent 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.
