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)".
