  • Students vying for admission to NITs IITs and other centrally funded institutions need to clear the JEE Mains test to qualify for the JEE Advanced

The joint entrance exam (JEE-Advanced), the gateway to prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT), will be conducted completely online from next year, to make logistics and evaluations easier.

Officials said an online test will help prevent mistakes and also avert situations like those encountered previous year, when the JAB - the apex body that conducts the exam - reportedly gave 18 bonus marks to candidates who took the JEE Advanced because of printing and translation errors in the question paper.

The meeting also discussed suggestions for bringing changes in the current system of setting questions and format of holding the JEE-Advance to check the possibility of errors that creep in the test papers every year leading the IITs to cut a sorry figure and compensate the candidates with bonus marks.

Bhaskar Ramamurthi, IIT-M's director and chairman of the Joint Admission Board (JAB) 2017 said, "Now we are going online like the GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering)".

"The apex body for the conduct of JEE (Advanced), at its meeting today, has decided that JEE Advanced will be conducted in online mode from 2018 onwards", said Prof Ramamurthi is a press release issued today.

Moreover, it was also discussed in the meeting that schools will also be advised an opportunity to the students so that they can use the computers. Around 2.2 lakh students were eligible to write the JEE (Advanced). Officials had put the admission process on hold temporarily after a group of students pointed out mistakes in the question paper. "All the suggestions of the committee will be part of the affidavit", a government official said on the condition of anonymity.

To take the JEE (Advanced), a candidate first has to clear JEE (Main).

The Ministry of Human Resource Development had earlier introduced the option of taking the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Mains online. "Further information regarding the examination will be provided by the JAB in due course".
