According to sources a IL was filed by IIT-KGP professor Rajiv Kumar about wrong questions which are usually found in jee questions every year. In response to this PIL high court passed the order dated May 28, in this order high court has directed IITs to seek objections and queries from candidates about correctness of the answer keys before evaluating JEE (Advanced) optical response sheets.
The order directed IIT Khragapur, the organising institute for JEE (Advanced) 2014 to – invite objections from candidates/public (stakeholders) regarding correctness of the answer-keys before evaluating the Optical Response Sheets (ORS) and then consider the objections by subject experts so that corrections, if any, could be made in the answer keys before initiating the evaluation of the ORS of JEE (Advanced) 2014.
No doubt this is a positive move for students but on the other side puts a question mark on the credibility of IITs revealing the manner in which they set up question papers.
The answer sheet of JEE (Advanced) 2014 is a machine-readable ORS. These sheets are graded and scrutinised with extreme care. Candidates can view the answer keys of JEE (Advanced) 2104 on Advanced 2014 website (idioms website) from June 1, 2014.
ORS of all candidates would have appeared both in Paper-1 and Paper-2 and will be on display on the website form June 08 to June 11, 2014 along with the machine-read responses and the marks scored.
Candidates can submit requests online to review in case of any perceived errors in the machine read responses.
Candidates will be charged at rate of Rs 500 per questions to be reviewed.
