The offline exam of JEE Main 2016, is scheduled for the coming weekend, March 03, 2016. It will be a big day for all the engineering aspirants and the centres conducting this off-line exam.

As per the general guidelines of the CBSE board, these centres have made all the arrangements to tackle the scores of aspirants and ensure that there are no discrepancies. Each class room will have only 24 students, along with 2 invigilators in every class. Centres also need to make sure that none of the invigilators are from Science background. Special arrangements on the ground floor will be provided for students with disabilities. Though CBSE has not intimated the centres beforehand about students with disabilities, but the colleges will be prepared with a spare classroom on the ground floor. As a part of the guidelines, the centres will also be providing drinking water to all the students as and when required.

“Right from fans to the tube-lights, table and benches, all the necessary inspection is being conducted by the centre co-ordinators to ensure the comfort of the students.” says Rajesh D who is the co-ordinator for the Ritambhara College, Mumbai. Similar arrangements have been observed at other centres as well.

Every student must carry their admit cards, without which they shall not be permitted. This will be checked at the gates before entry into the centres. Students will not be frisked individually to check for any copy material. Students will also not be permitted to carry electronic gadgets of any sorts, or even use their own stationary while taking the exam. All the stationary including pens, required to attempt the paper will be provided by CBSE at the exam centres. It has been strongly recommended by the various centre co-ordinators that students should strictly adhere to the time that has been allotted. For this purpose they have even suggested that students visit the centres one day prior to the actual exam.
