Will the dream run continue? Stage is set for the crucial JEE Advanced entrance examination, which is the second and final one for admission into IITs, which will be held on Sunday (May 25) across India.
Hyderabad: Stage is set for the crucial JEE Advanced entrance examination, which is the second and final one for admission into IITs, which will be held on Sunday (May 25) across India. More than 21,800 students who qualified in the JEE Main from Andhra Pradesh will appear for this stage-II test which will be conducted at five cities in the state- Hyderabad, Warangal, Visakhapatnam, Vijayawada and Nellore. This is a challenging task for Andhra Pradesh students, who emerged top and also created history in JEE Main by scoring maximum marks. AP has remained at the top in all India standings.
The JEE Advanced is being conducted by seven zonal IITs (under the directives of the Joint Admission Board) for admission to the undergraduate programmes in all 16 IITs and ISM Dhanbad.
It may be recalled that admission to IITs and ISM Dhanbad will be based only on category wise All India Rank (AIR) in JEE (Advanced) subject to the condition that such candidates are among the top 20 percentile of successful candidates of their boards in respective categories.
JEE Advanced will consist of two objective type (MCQ) question papers which are designed to analyse the comprehension, reasoning and analytical ability of candidates. The papers are held for duration of three hours each- i.e. paper I from 9 am to 12 pm and paper II from 2 pm to 5 pm.
Negative making is applicable for every wrong answer, but only in some sections. Those sections will be mentioned in the question papers only.
The percentile system is still a controversial issue that continued to dissatisfy the student community. The process of normalisation of marks amount various boards has still not been explained satisfactorily. Many students from Andhra Pradesh were denied admission as they were not in the cut-off mark range, which was changed at least thrice during the interview period.
