JEE Advanced 2017 exam is scheduled to be conducted on May 21. Around 2.2 lakh candidates who successfully qualified the JEE Main will sit for the JEE Advanced exam. On the basis of the result of the exam, the candidates will be selected for around 11,000 B.Tech seats available in 23 IITs across the country. JEE Advanced is a highly competitive exam in which a large number of students compete for a small number of seats in prestigious IITs. This year, JEE Advanced exam is being conducted by IIT Madras. When it comes to the smooth conduct of the exam, one of the major challenges in front of IIT Madras is to ensure that there are JEE Advanced 2017 Wrong Questions or not.
In India, the issue of wrong questions in major entrance exams has cropped up time and again. In JEE Main 2017, the CBSE decided to award 4 bonus marks for a question whose answer was 9. In previous years too, errors have occurred in JEE question papers. In the year 2014, IIT Kharagpur had accepted that there were errors in four questions of JEE Advanced paper. These questions were worth 12 marks.
It is important for the IIT aspirants to understand the possibilities which the IIT Madras may consider in case there are any wrong questions in the exam.
Case 1 – The IIT may grant grace marks for the wrong question.
Case 2 – The IIT may delete the wrong question and reduce the total marks of the exam.
Case 3 – The IIT may delete the wrong question and adjust the marks of the deleted question with other questions of the section/ paper.
JEE Advanced will be conducted on May 21 in 2 sessions – Paper 1 will be conducted from 9 am to 12 pm and Paper 2 from 2 pm to 5 pm. Considering the previous years’ pattern, the possibility of the wrong questions in JEE Advanced 2017 cannot be ruled out. For this reason, it is important for the candidates to ensure that they do not spend too much time on a particular question. Spending too much on a particular question may leave the candidates confused and bewildered. Moreover, they may not be able to attempt all the questions in the exam. If the candidates are unable to find the right answers, it’s better to move to the next questions. If the time permits, the candidates can come back to that question later.
