New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Wednesday while refuting the reports that some of the questions asked in JEE Main 2018 were from the mock test by a coaching center asked student and their parents not to fall prey to “falsities” and rumor mongering.
“The CBSE reiterates that all these 7-8 questions were originally written only about two to three months back and they cannot, and could not, have figured in any model paper by any coaching institutions two years back. There is an atmosphere of falsities and rumor mongering being deliberately perpetuated against a prestigious organization like CBSE”, Indian Express quoted an unnamed CBSE official as saying.
There was a report today morning in the newspapers that some 09 questions asked in JEE Main held on Sunday April 08 were those asked in a mock test conducted by a coaching class chain in 2016. Citing the information shared by some students, the reports claimed that at least nine objective questions in Physics from Set C in the JEE were the same as those in the mock test held by a Hyderabad-headquartered coaching class, with even the values in the problems being similar.
Responding the reports the CBSE said all the questions asked in JEE Main 2018 were original and written only 2-3 months by experts.
“The JEE question paper sets contain questions that are picked out of question bank containing close to 1,500 original items. The question bank is prepared by over 100 experts and each question is handwritten. After that, 90 questions are drawn randomly from the bank and eight to nine sets are created. After this the moderator even makes handwritten changes to each set. Then any one set is randomly picked for use in JEE and sent to the confidential printer,” the CBSE official said.
The JEE Main is the entrance test for admission to premium engineering institutions of India. It is also a primary requirement for JEE Advanced – coveted exam held for admission to various IITs. A total of 10,43,739 students appeared for JEE Main 2108 held on Sunday April 08 at 1621 exam centers in 112 cities, including 08 in abroad. Reacting on Twitter, most of the students had said JEE Main this year was tough, though some termed the exam of medium difficulty level.
JEE Main held on April 08 was pen and paper based and in offline mode. The JEE Main 2018 online mode will be held on April 15 and 16.
Meanwhile, students who appeared for the JEE Main 2018 should note that the official Answer Keys will be released on April 24. The CBSE will release JEE Main 2018 Answer Key along with OMR response sheet of the students on its official website. The CBSE will also provide to the students a chance to challenge the Answer Keys if there are any error.
