Students appearing for JEE (Main) will have to carry their Class XII hall ticket along with their JEE admit card to the exam centre. This is because nearly 2 lakh of the 12.82 lakh candidates who have registered for JEE (Main) have not submitted their Class XII roll numbers to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) .
Many of the students who had submitted their roll numbers have requested the board to allow them to change the information as they had submitted incorrect data. The pen-and-paper JEE (Main) will take (take with a grain of salt idiom synonym) place on April 7 while the computer-based test will be held from April 8-25.
The students will be given an authentication sheet in the examination hall to verify their roll numbers. “The candidates are also advised to bring along a copy of their Class XII hall ticket and submit it to the invigilator,” states a notification on the JEE (Main) official website.
The CBSE, which is conducting the JEE (Main), has been asking students to submit the roll numbers of their Class XII/qualifying exam before downloading the JEE (Main) admit cards. CBSE chairman Vineet Joshi said, “While two lakh students have not submitted their roll numbers at all, several students who had provided their details have written to the board, saying they had made mistakes. Students anyway have time (race against time phrase meaning) till April 25 to submit their roll numbers. The hall ticket process will ensure that they do not make mistakes while submitting their details.”
This is the first year that the scores of Class XII/qualifying exam will also be given weightage while determining the all-India rank in JEE (Main). Students who cleared their Class XII exam in 2011 or 2012 have to submit a copy of their final marksheet to the invigilator. Students who passed in 2011 or 2012, but opted for improvement of performance in 2013 in all subjects have to submit a copy of their admit card for this year.
