The answer keys for the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Advanced 2016 were released on Sunday, June 5, 2016. However, those who took the exam have alleged that the answer keys have many errors.
The students could challenge the answer key by sending a fax with the required documents attached to it on or before June 7, 2016. The deadline for challenging the answer keys has expired, and JEE office has received numerous applications. “Though students have challenged various questions, there are two which have been challenged by many,” said a JEE official.
KV Krishna, Chairman, JEE Advanced 2016, however, negated the prospect of an error in the answer key. “There are very few chances of discrepancy in the answer keys. Every year, we receive a huge number of applications, challenging the answer keys and we have a standard procedure for it,” adding that, “After a student has faxed his application challenging the answer key, the same is forwarded to the subject expert who then review it. These reviews are scrutinised on multiple levels. If there are any changes in the answer key, it is revised, and bonus marks are allotted accordingly.”
If at all the answer keys are revised, it will bode well for all engineering aspirants who appeared for JEE Advanced 2016. They will benefit with bonus marks.
The All India Rank (AIR) and the category rank will be displayed on the official website on June 12, 2016. No individual rank cards will be issued. However, merely securing a rank in the examination does not guarantee admission into the premier technical institutions – IITs or ISM.
