Hundreds of students have been fretted over clash of dates of their annual examinations and JEE Main exam to be held in April this year. They have urged the CBSE which holds both the exams to alter the dates of JEE Main (CBT) at the soonest.
While the offline exam was scheduled to be held on April 6, the online exam was originally slated to be held on April 9, 11, 12 and 19. But the class XII exams clash with the dates of online exam, according to students.
JEE Mains 2014 computer based exam dates that are clashing with CBSE class XII exams: April 9 - Urdu exam, April 11- Home Science exam, April 12 –Philosophy, April 12- Entrepreneurship exam, April 19 - Music JEE Main exam, conducted both in pen and paper mode and computer-based, gave aspirants the option to select their own exam date for the online exam. As requests poured in from hundreds of students for change of dates, the CBSE has acceded to it and advised them to suggest alternate dates before April 25, on which they can attend the exam.
Even after receiving requests from aspirants worried about the clash of dates of the board examination with JEE Mains computer-based exams, CBSE has not yet made up its mind so far on the possible dates for each of the candidates. Aspirants are now rather tizzy and could not concentrate completely on either of the exams.
The CBSE has made it clear that candidates can send the copy of their admit card of class XII exams through e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org latest by March 15. The candidates should also mention their application number of JEE Main. The copy of admit card of class XII sent by post or sent on any other mail-id will not be entertained. These candidates will be allotted other available date of Computer Based Examination of JEE Main.
As the CBSE postponed the decision to the mid of March, students are now greatly agitated as they have to prepare for other entrance tests as well. “We get little time to prepare ourselves for VIT and EAMCET,” said Amulya Rangaraju, who is studying at Narayana College at Narayanaguda in Hyderabad.
Senior Intermediate students are also a bit worried over the dates since, there is every possibility of change of centres or dates in the event of alternate dates for the sake of CBSE students. They are also demanding announcement of final dates immediately so that they can focus on preparation in a methodic way.
