The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) board will release the scanned OMR answer sheets and answer keys to the pen-paper exam held earlier this month today. Students can not only find out where they went wrong, they can also challenge any question or answer as mentioned by the JEE authorities.
“All candidates who appeared for the pen-and-paper format of JEE mains on April 2 can check the scanned images of their OMR answer sheets with their recorded responses and the answer key, which will be uploaded on www.jeemain.nic.in from April 18 to 22,” states the circular released by JEE. Candidates are allowed to challenge the recorded responses if these differ from the ones they had marked on the OMR sheet.
Any challenges made by a candidate will only be recorded through the online medium, and the authorities have clearly stated that any challenges submitted by post or in person will not be accepted. “A candidate will have to pay the prescribed fee of Rs1000 per recorded answer or question challenged, and the same will be accepted till 11:59pm on April 22,” states the circular. If the challenge is accepted by the board, and there is an error in the recorded response or the answer key, the board will also refund the fees to the student and the correction will be notified to all.
Over two lakh students who appeared for the JEE mains in the online format have already received their question paper and marked responses via email. However, if they too want to challenge the answer key, they can follow the same format, said JEE authorities.
