JEE Main 2018 Key Highlights of Exam Day

The national level entrance exam, JEE Main 2018 has begun. Students have started reaching their respective exam centres. Parents are accompanying their wards to the exam centres, however, they are unhappy with the rules and timing of the examination. “Removing of shoes, belt and shocks were not informed earlier. Also, asking students to report at 7:00 am at the exam center was not necessary,” says one of the JEE aspirant parent while interacting with Careers360.

At another exam centre in Delhi, Dinesh Negi with son Shantanu is happy.  This is his second attempt. “The exam day pressure is always very high but its better this time. The scores are secondary, reaching for this exam is important,” says Dinesh Negi.

 

For some, new rules enforced at the centres was a rude shock - for instance boys are asked to remove belt, socks, and shoes, while girls are asked to remove shoes, bangles etc. Watches, wallets, pen, pencils and electronic devices were also not allowed inside the examination hall. Students could take their money along with them.

Most centres had provisions for students to keep their phones and bags like a counter outside the schoo which issued coupons in lieu of phones and bags

NK Gupta security head at one exam centre told Careers360, “frisking is reduced on account of metal detectors. I see the need for frisking properly as advanced technology has made cheating easy. However we have secure systems which I believe are fool proof."
