In a much-awaited move, those who took this year’s Indian Institute of Technology Joint Entrance Examination (IIT-JEE) will be able to see their answers, the correct responses and individual scores on the JEE website from Thursday.
IIT Delhi, which conducted the examination this year, will post on the website the answers given by students in the exam. This facility allows students, using their roll numbers, to see the correct answers, what they had marked and their scores.
The scanned copies of each student’s optical response sheets (ORS) will be uploaded on Saturday on all JEE websites.
“The final results will be displayed on May 18. Students can see the answer keys from Thursday and their ORS between May 5 and May 10,” said RK Shevgaonkar, director, IIT Delhi.
The purpose of uploading the answer sheets and answer keys is to provide transparency and to give the students a chance to lodge complaints.
“We will deal with all complaints related to the marking of answers in the sheets. Say, a student has marked a circle partially and has not been given a mark for that. A committee of faculty members will analyse the student’s claim and give marks accordingly,” said M Balakrishnan, dean, post graduate studies at IIT Delhi. Candidates can submit requests for revision in case of any perceived error in the machine-read responses through the website by May 10.
“We want to make sure that the student is satisfied with the evaluation and can see how it has been conducted. I don’t, however, think we will receive many complaints.”
This year over 4.79 lakh students took the test for close to 10,000 seats in the 16 IITs.
