The result of JEE Mains 2016 will be declared on Wednesday and the coaching institutes in Kota are hopeful of repeating their stupendous feat this year around as well.
The small town in Rajasthan has 150-200 odd coaching centres which are known for churning out IITians year on year. Most institutes here believe that they will outperform themselves tomorrow.
Nitin Vijay, Director, Motion IIT Academy, Kota, appeared confident that this year more students from his institute will clear JEE Mains. When asked about the logic behind his assertion, he said, “Students and institutes work hard all through the year. Their diligence will reap rich rewards tomorrow.” Shailendra Maheshwari, Director of Career Point Institute, said that it was difficult to predict the exact number of selections but he was hopeful that his institute and Kota would better its score in JEE Mains 2016.
The coaching institutes were of the unanimous view that the cut-off can see a drop this year around. “JEE Mains examination was tougher than last year as it was more conceptual, so students took more time in finishing the paper. The cut-offs will come down this time. There were some ambiguities in the paper and it was confused students,” said RK Verma, Managing Director of Resonance.
The aspirants in the coaching city had mixed feelings. While some aspirants were relaxed, others seemed anxious and worried. The recently released answer keys and OMR sheets had added to their woes. Deepak Sharma from Uttar Pradesh said that he is expecting around 238 marks as per the answer key and has started JEE Advanced preparation. Another aspirant Mrityunjay Kumar Yadav revealed that he is qualifying after tallying marks of JEE Mains with the answer key so there is no excitement about tomorrow’s results. However, Pooja Kumari said that she is scoring marks which are marginally above expected cut off marks so she was a bit anxious.
