Hindustan Times (Patna) - - FRONT PAGE - Bhavya Dore

MUM­BAI: The Joint En­trance Exam (JEE)-Ad­vanced may change once again in 2014, a fresh doc­u­ment has hinted. JEE, a two-stage exam, is the en­trance cri­te­rion for the In­dian In­sti­tutes of Tech­nol­ogy (IITs) and will be con­ducted, for the first time, next year. The top 1.5 lakh can­di­dates from the first stage, the JEE-Main, will be el­i­gi­ble to ap­pear for the JEE-Ad­vanced.

The lat­est doc­u­ment an­swer­ing fre­quently asked ques­tions in view of the JEE re­forms has been put up by the IITs. The 2013 for­mat for the Ad­vanced Exam will be based on two three-hour pa­pers (sim­i­lar to the JEE so far), with mul­ti­ple­choice ques­tions. How­ever, it is not clear if this will re­main as the for­mat in sub­se­quent years.

In re­sponse to the ques­tion on the IIT Bom­bay web­site, “will the ex­am­i­na­tion struc­ture re­main the same in 2014”, the an­swer says, “No. The ex­am­i­na­tion struc­ture for JEE (Ad­vanced) – 2014 and be­yond may change. De­tails re­gard­ing this will be made avail­able at a later date.”
