The Central Board of Secondary Education will enable the facility for correction in JEE main 2017 application from January 25 to February 3, 2017, on their official website www.jeemain.nic.in. The registered candidates can edit their details and or make corrections in the application form of JEE Main 2017.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Saturday made available the answer keys as well as images of response sheets (OMR sheets) against the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main paper.
Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is an all India common entrance examination conducted in order to provide admission in various engineering courses. The prestigious entrance exam is conducted into two parts, JEE-Main and JEE-Advanced. Candidates who clear IIT-JEE main examination are eligible to appear for IIT-JEE advance which provides and entry to IITs and institutions alike.
Nearly 1.5 lakh students are eligible to appear for JEE Advanced, after they are screened from the JEE Main. It is worth noting that the JEE Main is the entry point for admissions to all the National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and other engineering colleges. The test also decodes eligibility of candidates to sit for the JEE Advanced.
But now when the results are out, a distinctly visible pattern has emerged – a pattern that may damper the demands for the civil services exam to be conducted in all regional languages. Apparently, it turns out, JEE candidate who opted for regional languages fared rather poorly compared to candidates who opted for English.
The shocking final list was declared on Thursday and has resulted in considerable discontent among the engineering aspirants. The confusion regarding the results is mainly attributed to the Director of Technical Education’s (DTE’s) use of the composite score formula, derived from the percentile of JEE(score) and the class 12 marks(physics, chemistry and mathematics), giving equal weightage to both. The DTE is responsible for supervising admissions to professional institutes in the state.
Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB) which is constituted by the Govt. of India is responsible for coordinating admissions to UG degree programmes in engineering, technology and architecture in respect of selected institutes. The CSAB for 2014 has been constituted with Director, Malaviya National Institute of Technology Jaipur, as its Chairman.
Ganta Srinivasa Rao, HRD Minister Andhra Pradesh has taken up the issue with the Union HRD Minister, Smriti Irani, after students raised objections for taking into consideration only the second year marks for evaluating the weightage.
The JEE Administrators have already announced that students who answered either of the two correct options, will get full marks. “The questions are not wrong. They have alternative answers. If a student has blackened either of those answers, he will get marks. Students will not be victimised,” said a teacher associated with JEE Advanced, reports the Telegraph.
While formulating the merit list in engineering colleges in Maharashtra for 2014, equal weightage will be given to the JEE (Main) and PCM (Physics, Chemistry, Biology) scores of students in Class XII. The Class XII scores from different boards will be normalised using a formula devised by the Indian Statistical Institute.
