NEW DELHI: The JEE exam brings with some kind of controversy each year. And this year was no exception.
The JEE main 2016 exam was conducted on April 3, 2016 at over 2,000 centres across India and abroad. About 12 lakh students appeared for the paper. Applicants had the choice to appear for any one of the two papers, or both.
Although the question paper said that there will only be one right option for each question, but the answer key uploaded by the CBSE had a couple of questions with two right answers. Both the questions carried five marks each. Candidates who missed these questions on finding that they carry two correct options are now worried about losing out on the marks, which they claim could "make a difference to the 10,000 positions in the JEE ranking."
The CBSE officiating Chairman YSK Seshu Kumar said, "No student will be put to disadvantage." According to a parent, the CBSE should either give bonus marks to each student or mark on the basis of 88 questions.
The JEE main Results are expected to be declared on April 27 by the CBSE.
