The authorities conducting the JEE Advanced are scheduled to release the revised answer keys at 12 pm, today. These answer keys will be displayed after making the required changes, based on the feedback submitted by the candidates regarding any discrepancies in the answer keys published earlier this week.
The answer keys for both, Paper 1 and Paper 2 were published at the official website of JEE Advanced on June 8.
The students were permitted to give their feedback starting at 12 pm on June 8 up till 5 pm on June 11. They were allowed to submit the feedback only through fax, and any communication via e-mail or telephone was not available. The fax numbers for all zonal institutes were mentioned along with the answer keys.
The Optical Response Sheet (ORS) and scanned images, cut-off marks and rank list for preparatory courses have already been published online.
This year, the pattern for JEE was changed unexpectedly, and students complained about the excessive negative marking. Although both the papers were supposed to carry 180 marks, the pattern was altered without any notice. Paper I consisted of 262 questions and Paper II carried 240 questions. Also, the candidates found most of the questions under the Mathematics and Physics sections time consuming.
The new negative marking scheme, under which two negative marks will be awarded for wrong answers, was another shock to the students who took the exam last month.
The JEE Advanced was conducted on May 24. Approximately 1.5 lakh students has registered for the competitive exam, and about 1.25 lakh appeared for it.
