Jee Advanced: Glitch in JEE Mains: IIT told to accept JEE Advanced form | Ahmedabad News


AHMEDABAD: The Gujarat high court on Friday directed the Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati, to accept the application of a Vadodara student for the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Advanced, after doubts cropped up about whether the student answered all the questions in the JEE Mains or none at all.
This case involves Kush Patel, who claims to have a good track record and who took the JEE Mains on April 12. He approached the HC after he found that his response sheet first showed him as having attempted all questions successfully and getting the full 300 marks at 7.03am on April 20. At 1.15pm the same day, he saw his response sheet on the same website reflecting that he had not attempted a single question. The result declared on April 29 showed him to be ranking in the 7th percentile. His advocate, Dhaval Vyas, contended that a technical glitch may have wiped out the student’s answers.
The HC sought a response from the National Testing Agency, which conducts the JEE Mains, saying that the link sent to the student on April 27 reflected that he had not attempted any question. The NTA said it sought CCTV footage from the exam centre and the NIC will provide it in 12-14 days. The court asked whether the response sheets were downloaded from the official website, and the link sent by NTA to the student was the same. While the student claimed he had downloaded the response sheets from the official website, NTA’s counsel said many agencies jump in and misguide students.
Justice Sangeeta Vishen said, “Both the response sheets give an extreme indication, which is difficult to believe.” As the NTA has undertaken to bring on record the facts after the necessary inquiry and reports, the HC asked IIT Guwahati, which is conducting JEE Advanced, to allow the student to fill in the form for the exam.
