The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) declared the scores of JEE(mains) late Friday night.
Nearly 12.78 lakh students had appeared for the exam and the final result will be known in July. The top 1.5 lakh students would be allowed to sit for the JEE(advanced) exam for admission to IITs.
“We are loading the scores on Friday night. Besides the online challenges, the experts were looking into all the mails that had been received by the individual students. We are uploading the revised answer key with corrected answers,” CBSE chairman Vineet Joshi told HT.
CBSE conducts the JEE(mains) for admission to different NITs, IITs and other centrally funded institutes. The board uploaded the answers of questions that were asked in the offline and online exams. Students could challenge the answers on payment of Rs. 1000 for each question, which would be refunded if they were correct.
