Most Metro Cities to Conduct JEE Main Examination Via Computers

Mar 25, 2013 11:09 IST

    The JEE Main examination (computer based) which will be held between 8 April – 25 will be taken by around 1.74 lakh students.

    Now hoards of students would be journeying across India to the nearing districts in order to take the joint entrance examinations.

    For, the JEE (main) in large metros will be conducted only on computers, which ironically, most engineering aspirants are averse to.

    So far, 12.82 lakh high school graduates have applied to take the JEE to be held in 112 cities. Patna will host the largest pool of students  47,748 on 7 April 2013, when the test will be held.

    Kanpur is second with over forty three thousand candidates who may not necessarily hail from that city, but will travel to from various parts of Uttar Pradesh.

    Though most students wish to take the examination via the pen and the paper mode, there is a realization that computer will remain the future.

    Apart from the IITs, National Institutes of Technology, the Delhi Technological University and other centrally funded technical institutes, all colleges in Gujarat and Nagaland the only two states to join the JEE (main) this year will screen students based on a combination of scores from this exam and the Class XII marks. Approximately  1.5 lakh of the top rankers in the JEE (main) will be eligible to appear for the JEE (advanced) on 2 June 2013.
