The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), which has recently published the answer key for this year’s JEE Mains examination, has admitted their there were mistakes in the question paper. The CBSE, through official declaration, has said that the two questions in Physics paper had multiple answer options, whereas there should be only one answer. The online and offline JEE 2016 examination took place on 3 and 10 April respectively at various examination centres, answer keys of which are made public by the board in their official website.
The students who took the JEE Mains examination this year, will be allowed to download their OMR sheets from the website by providing their application number, roll number and password. They could also download the same and undergo the answers carefully. In case any candidates have doubts over the assessments made by the authority, they can challenge it. The candidates can challenge upto 5 pm on 22 April and for the same they need to submit an online application to the board. Challenging for one particular question would cost them a fee of Rs. 1000/-, which needs to be paid online while making the application.
The results, after settling the challenge claims of the students, would be out on 27 April. Those candidates who have cleared the examination would move forward to give the JEE Advanced. Many a candidates have turned furious over the mistake committed by the board as they have left the questions due to ambiguity of answers in the examination centres. They are demanding justice from the board to which the chairman has assured that there would be “no disadvantage to students”.
