JEE Main, Advanced 2020: AICTE Chairman on Results, IIT Admissions
From results to admissions, watch Dr Sahasrabudhe answer all queries related to JEE Main and Advanced.
The postponing of JEE Main and JEE Advanced may have come as a relief for aspirants, but questions about results and the admission process still remain a big guess. In order to get clarity on some of these aspects, The Quint spoke to AICTE Chairman Dr Anil Sahasrabudhe.
JEE Main & Advanced postponed to September, but will the situation improve by then?
“The way this pandemic grows is totally unpredictable. This is the second time that the exams have been postponed. I hope by that time we would have adjusted ourselves. One of the main reasons for postponing these exams was to enable students who could not go to foreign universities to apply in India. I don't think there will be any possible change in exams.”
How can the exams be conducted in September?
“Conducting such a huge exams with so many students while maintaining social distancing is a challenge. May be we will have to keep one seat empty between two computers. So number of students who were earlier accommodated in a centre would become half. For this additional centres may have to be added.”
Can JEE Main & Advanced be conducted at home?
“We can definitely think in that direction and a decision will be taken based on how the situation develops. Till date JEE has never conducted proctored examination from home. Usually, proctoring happens in computer labs, as its a computer based exam. Whether its our faculty or the camera of the laptop, it does not matter, it doesn’t matter much actually. But AI based tools are not so sophisticated that it can totally avoid cheating.”
When will results be out?
“Since it’s an online examination, it won’t take much time to declare results. If everything is ready, results can be declared in a matter of two to three days. But at times, the correct answer to a question is debated upon. Post-examination also, some activities take place. Therefore, it shouldn’t take more than seven to eight days.”
