Kanpur: The answer keys of Paper‐1 and Paper‐2 for JEE (Advanced) 2018 has been uploaded at https://www.jeeadv.ac.in. The answer keys of Paper‐1 and Paper‐2 for JEE (Advanced) 2018 are available at the official website of JEE (Advanced).
The results of JEE (Advanced) 2018 will be released on 10 June 2018.
JEE (Advanced) 2018 was conducted successfully in the Computer‐Based‐Test (CBT) mode for the first time on May 20, 2018. Of the ~1.65 lakh registered candidates, more than 95% of the candidates appeared in Paper 1 and ~94% candidates appeared in Paper 2. Both papers were compulsory. Both Paper 1 and Paper 2 are now available on the JEE (Advanced) 2018 website in both Hindi and English.
Total number of candidates appeared in Paper 1 is 1,57,496 while the total number of candidates appeared in Paper 2 is 1,55,091.
The overall experience of the CBT was appreciated by all concerned, especially the option permitting the candidate to change her/his answer before final submission along with the option to mark questions for review with or without answering. Distribution of printed hard‐copies of instruction sheets to each candidate before the start of both papers, explaining the marking scheme, number and type of questions, both in Hindi and English was also appreciated by the candidates, most of whom had benefitted from the mock tests and help videos made available on the JEE (Advanced) 2018 website. Another feature much appreciated by the candidates was their ability to see any of the questions in both Hindi and English.
Such a large‐scale examination was conducted in the CBT‐mode with two compulsory shifts for the first time in the country. Some issues related to the responsibilities entrusted to a third‐party (first party being the IIT system and second party being the candidates) such as location and ambiance of centres along with infrastructural challenges related to electricity supply and networking, were reported.
IIT authorities have taken serious note of the above, especially due to the fact that meticulous planning for the conduct of a candidate‐friendly JEE (Advanced) 2018 was carried out for several months in advance by putting in place uncompromising protocols along with recommendations for implementation of specific requirements.
In view of this, the IIT authorities are already taking steps to properly investigate whether, why and how, some of those protocols may have been compromised at the last hour. It has been decided to comprehensively address the issues, after proper identification, well before the JEE (Advanced).
