Pune: The JEE Advanced will be held only in Computer Based Test (CBT) mode this year. Thus, the students appearing for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) this year will get a chance to change their answers in the advanced examination for the first time as many times as they want during the examination.
The JEE Advanced is scheduled to be held on May 20 this year.
The JEE Mains, on the other hand, which will be held on April 9, will be held both in online as well as offline modes, with the students getting a chance to choose what is convenient to them.
The circular issued for the same states that in order to familiarise the prospective candidates with the CBT environment and its functionalities, mock tests and help videos for JEE Advanced 2018 have been prepared and uploaded on the official website www.jeeadv.ac.in.
The candidates can take the mock test as many times as they wish. Also, they can take help of the videos to get their doubts cleared.
Every candidate will be allotted a computer terminal (node) at the test centre. The welcome login screen for the CBT will display a photograph of the candidate on the allotted computer. For login, the candidate will have to enter his/her JEE (Advanced) 2018 roll number as login-id and enter his/her date of birth as password.
In case the computer/ mouse allotted to any candidate malfunctions anytime during the test, he/she will be immediately allotted another computer system and the time lost due to this will be adjusted in the server, so as to give the candidate the full allotted time of three hours.
