JEE Advanced 2018 is going to be held on 20th May 2018 and IIT Kanpur is the organizing institution. Only this year, a decision has been taken to make logistics and evaluation process easier and consequently the exam will be conducted in the Computer Based Test (CBT) or online Mode. In the online mode, students would need to take the exam at the designated centres where instead of marking their answers in an OMR (Optical Mark Reading) sheet, they would need to answer the questions on a computer. There have been occasional errors in the JEE Advanced question papers and now with the introduction of CBT or online mode such errors will hopefully be removed.
Every year lacs of students compete for seats in reputed engineering colleges like the Indian Institutes of Technology, National Institutes of Technology and other government and private colleges. The entry to these colleges is gained through Joint Entrance Examination, popularly known as JEE which is a national level engineering entrance exam held usually on first or second Sunday of April every year for admission to different engineering courses. Performance in JEE is the main criteria for securing admission to the NITs and other institutes while it is the first stage exam for admission to the IITs. Between 10 and 12 lakh students appeared for the JEE Main examination every year.
It is very well understood that there might be some ambiguity Students might face while giving the exam in CBT mode for the first time and to overcome this barrier, IIT Kanpur (The exam organization Body for JEE Advanced 2018) has released various help videos (available in both English and Hindi) and mock Tests, in order to help Students acclimatize this new testing pattern. These can be accessed at the official website of JEE Advanced.
