Important verdicts for the JEE Main 2014
The meeting of the Joint Admission Broad (JAB) of the Indian Institute of Technology was held on September 15, for taking final decision on the format of the IIT Joint Entrance Exams (JEE) and also for deciding the examination dates for IIT JEE Main and Advanced. This committee has decided to keep the offline format for JEE Advanced 2014 i.e. the examination will continue to be in the ‘paper and pencil’ format and there will be no online test for IIT JEE 2014. The members of JAB earlier had considered the online format but have now decided to wait before it is actually implemented. Students can go for the online courses for IIT JEE to know about the syllabus of IIT JEE 2014.
At the meeting, important examination dates were also discussed, though there has been no official announcement, but it is expected to be made very soon. Committee announced tentative dates for the IIT JEE Main and IIT JEE Advanced 2014, which is as follows:
IIT JEE Main is anticipated on April 6, 2014
IIT JEE Advanced is anticipated on May 25, 2014
Previously it was decided to change the format of JEE Advanced from offline to the online mode but due to some reasons Board members denied to do so. They also said it will be implemented in the near future but not in 2014. Another committee will be made to conduct the online processing of the examination so that it can be effectively implemented in the future. IIT officials clearly said there will no change in the examination format i.e. it will be paper and pencil based. Only top 1, 50,000 students of the IIT JEE Main will be eligible to get the ticket of the IIT JEE Advanced. After that only top 10,000 students will be given ranks and get place in any one of the IIT JEE. So, aspiring students buck up and study more and more or can also avail the benefits of JEE mains and advance coaching institutes.
The apex body of JEE (Main) has also denied to conduct two Mains for the IIT Joint Entrance Examinations (JEE) in a year. The CBSE board proposed to conduct JEE Main twice in the same year, so as to give a ‘second chance’ to the IIT and engineering aspirants. If this proposal will be approved then the IIT-JEE Main would be conducted once in February and then in April. Though, this proposal was turned down by the members of the apex body of the IIT JEE. They said conducting two examinations in the same year, along with the board examinations would add the pressure on students.
About 1.26 lakh students appeared for the IIT JEE 2013, most of them preferred to choose the pen and paper mode of exam over online exams, only 10 percent students selected for the online version of JEE Mains. As 2013 will end in no time and 2014 will bloom very soon, you will not have more time in hand to go through the entire syllabus of the IIT JEE 2014, so aspirants it’s time to get start your preparations smartly with the IIT JEE 2014 coaching institutes.
