IIT-JEE answer sheets to be posted online
IIT aspirants will now get to see their evaluated JEE answer scripts even before the result is declared on May 18. IIT Delhi, which organised JEE on April 8 this year, has decided to upload the checked optical response sheets of every candidate on the JEE website to maintain transparency and avoid any errors. It is for the first time that the candidates will get a chance to go through their answer sheets to see if they have been evaluated properly.
If a candidate finds any discrepancy, he or she can lodge a complaint online. These evaluated answer sheets will be available online from May 5 to May 10. The facility to submit requests for revision will close at 5pm on May 10 after which representatives of all IITs will meet to consider the requests. If found correct, the responses will be updated by May 14. According to IITD director, R Shevgaonkar, it may happen that the scanner does not pick up correct responses if a candidate has not filled the response bubble completely.
"In such a case, they can simply lodge a complaint and we will go through it before the preparation of the final merit list," he said. However, candidates will not be allowed to change their responses or question the answer keys provided by IITD. The facility is only for highlighting any technical glitches.
