JEE authorities rectify the mismatch in aspirants name on admit cards
JEE authorities rectified the confusion caused by the difference in names as typed out in the JEE Main 2016 admit card and board exam hall ticket. JEE authorities also changed the landing page for downloading the admit cards to make it easier for aspirants.
The admit cards were released on March 10, 2016 but aspirants who forgot their passwords were unable to download it. Moreover, few aspirants were shocked to see that their names did not match with their board exam hall ticket and panicked.
JK Yadav, Deputy Secretary, JEE Office, said, "Some students called at our office and complained about the mismatch in their names. We noticed that there were no spelling errors, but the order in which their names were written on their board exam hall ticket mismatched with the JEE Main admit card. We have rectified it by giving an option to aspirants to change names on the admit card."
To download the admit card, candidates were required to fill in their application number and password. But many of them forgot their passwords. Yadav added, "We noticed that students struggled to download their admit cards. Many students sent us requests to retrieve their passwords. So now we have provided the aspirants to download their admit cards by entering their date of birth."
Aspirants can download their admit card by filling their application number and date of birth on the JEE Main website. However, if a student fails to remember the application number, JEE has provided a way out for that as well- students can click on 'Forgot Application Number' and fill in the asked details to retrieve their application number.
The JEE Main 2016 offline examination will be conducted on April 3, and online examination on April 9 and 10.
