Relaxation on eligibility criteria for IITs and NITs for Architectural courses

Respected Sir,

It came to my notice that the criteria given for Engineering and Architectural courses for admissions in most privileged colleges (IITs and NITs) is 75% marks in 12th. For engineering, it may be kind of OK, but for Architectural courses, I personally believe that what we should measure is some different type of talents. It's more about Drawing skills, aptitude and creativity in Architecture.

I came across few students who have scored good in JEE paper2 but scored average in 12th. Do consider this as my request to reconsider eligibility criteria. Maybe some relaxation from your part like 60% in 12th, will make some dream come true and lessen the chance of losing some quality architects in future.
