JEE Advanced to go online from 2016

Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) are working on a plan to take Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Advanced online by the session 2016-17. On August 23, at a meeting of the Joint Admission Board of IITs, in New Delhi, it has been agreed that it should go online completely from 2016.

Almost 1.5 lakh students are shortlisted for JEE Advanced after taking the JEE Main test. JEE Mains is held for candidates, who wish to seek admissions to (National Institutes of Technology) NITs and other engineering colleges and also sets the eligibility criterion for JEE Advanced.

JEE Mains has already gone online, partly. Not only the IITs are planning to take the examination online but are also looking at ways to replace the format of the exam, too. At present, they have a Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) format. The IITs are trying to come up with a pattern, which is objective in nature but lets a student attempt a problem solving exercise and then reach a conclusion i.e. an answer.

This process is being tried to implement because many feel that the existing MCQ style is allowing some students score high just by guessing the correct answer rather than applying their minds.
