IIT-JEE Advanced may become a computer-based exam next year

From 2014, the JEE-Advanced exam may be a computer-based exam and the final decision on the switch will be taken when the Joint Admission Board meets in early September.

IIT-Bombay director Devang Khakhar said that they have discussed a proposal to offer the test on computer or, at least, to keep it as an option in the first year. He said the rollout looked possible since candidate numbers had dropped to 1.5 lakh.

IIT-JEE Advanced may become a computer-based exam next year. IIT-Kharagpur, which is in charge of conducting the JEE (Advanced) for 2014, will parse through the 2013 database. An IIT official said, “As a starting point, we’ll see how many of the students who qualified for the IIT (Advanced) took the main test on computer.”

    Preparing for JEE advanced is a tough nut but various coaching manuals and previous year papers do come handy. I subscribed to an online coaching center and the study material they provided was of great help.
