See your checked answer sheet on IIT website

New Delhi, May 2 2012, DHNS:

To make evaluating process of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) more student friendly, the premier institute has decided to post answer keys and students’ answer sheets on its website.

“The answer keys will be displayed on all JEE websites on May 3. Whereas the answer copies (Optical Response sheets-ORS) of all the candidates will be displayed from May 5 to May 10 along with the machine read responses and the marks scored,” said R K Shevgaonkar, IIT-Delhi director on Wednesday.

Check scores

According to Shevgaonkar, the move was introduced to help candidates to check their scores as well as send revision requests, if any before the result was announced.

“If the student has any doubt, then he can log on to the website and can complain.

There would be a group of faculty from all IITs which will see if the complaints are genuine and if there is an error, and then the correction will be done,” he said.

Candidates can submit revision requests online in case of any perceived errors in the machine read-responses. 

The facility for submitting the revision requests online will be closed on May 10. The result will be displayed on May18.

“We want to make the student see (the ORS) and be satisfied with the evaluation,” he said and added that he expected few complaints.

This year over 4.79 lakh students wrote the exam. The human resource development ministry is planning to introduce a national common examination ISEET (Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test) for admission to all central-level engineering institutes like IITs from 2013. 

If the proposal materialises, JEE 2012 would be the last IIT-JEE entrance test. Performance in the school board exam may also be considered for admission from 2013 onwards.
