Changes in the JEE Advanced question paper

Steps have been made to conduct the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Advanced Test online for Indian Institute of Technology (IITs). The JEE Main Test is conducted by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in both online and offline modes. In 2018, JEE Main is being conducted in two ways. However, the Joint IITs have decided to conduct the JEE Advanced Test Online completely.

 JEE  question paperSo far JEE Advanced Tests are conducted by IIT Bombay, IIT Madras and IIT Guwahati and IIT Kanpur will be conducting next year. IIT Kanpur conducted the test in 2011 when the JEE test was introduced. Kanpur is going to conduct seven years later. On the other hand, the JEE Advanced -2018 test will be conducted in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Nepal, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Dubai.

The Joint Admission Board (JAB) which monitors the entries in IITs has decided to take the JEE Advance online from 2018 to avoid online problems. The JAB idea is to avoid security issues in the form of question paper formatting, translation errors and test management in the pen-paper process.
There are also translation errors in the background of the offline policy and thereby face court disputes. In case of JEE-Advanced -2017, there are 18 bonus marks for translation deficiencies in translation papers. The process of admission was also delayed for a few days. JAB Experts believe that these problems can be hampered by online.

Kanpur IIT is preparing for conduct the JEE Advanced - 2018. Seven Zonal IITs have initiated a Committee to take test-related measures under the auspices of the US. The test will be conducted in Hindi and English. It also focuses on the tenders that need to be tested online. The zonal IIT Committee looks forward to making several changes in the JEE Advanced Examination Questionnaire online. The short answer questions are also expected to include multiple choice questions. IITs think that it will be possible to question students more deeply.

In a computer-based test, students may have the opportunity to correct answers. The pen paper system does not change the OMR sheet once the answer has been bubble. In an online manner, it is possible to get answers to each other twice. Evaluation of online answer papers is done quickly. JAB says that the results will be faster. In the next step, counseling will be preceded by the introduction of the possibility of delay in the beginning of the academic year.

The concept of multiple choices of questions has always been the point of knowing that students cannot be hacked to learn. Shortcut information can also be answered. IIT Kanpur sources said the final decision will be taken soon. The IITs are expected to allocate 15 to 20 minutes before the exam to provide students with details of the online exam. The first step is to conduct the test online, as the students are aware of the need for awareness.

JEE Main is the eligibility Test for Advance. Over the past three years, 90 percent of students have written me offline, regardless of their themes (region, education, teaching medium).
