JEE Advanced 2017: IIT Madras may give 11 bonus marks for 3 ambiguous questions

IIT-Madras-may-give-11-bonus-marksIndian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras, the exam conducting authority for JEE Advanced 2017 is likely to award 11 bonus marks for 3 ambiguous questions to all the candidates who had taken JEE Advanced 2017 on May 21. The decision was taken after an internal review of question papers by the IIT experts, reported a national daily.

According to the report by The Times of India (TOI), 2 questions from Mathematics and 1 question from Physics section are found to be ambiguous. In two other questions from Physics and Chemistry, marks will be awarded for any of the 2 answers.

The report also quoted some teachers and students who have confirmed that none of them were able to find any rational answer/solution to these respective questions. VV Acharya, a teacher from Pace Junior Science College, was quoted telling TOI that no one could solve the Physics question on rotational dynamics. He further shared, "What was wanted in the question was not clearly known. The IITs have rightly given bonus marks for that question. The other question, which was from the same topic, could have been interpreted in more than one way. Some students may have wanted to challenge it but the IITs have given marks for both right answers."

 

Another teacher said, “In Mathematics one question, for which bonus marks were given, was incorrect; no answer was matching.”

 

However, there is no official confirmation on awarding bonus marks for these ambiguous questions by IIT Madras yet. The final decision of IIT Madras will be out after June 6, which is the last date for uploading feedback and comments against the answer key of JEE Advanced 2017. It must be noted that JEE Advanced 2017 answer key for Paper I and Paper II was released on June 4. Candidates can upload/submit their feedback or comments against the answer key till 5 pm on June 6. In case the challenges submitted by the candidates are found to  be genuine and valid, then the claims will be incorporated in the final answer key of JEE Advanced 2017 accordingly.

 

In 2017, as may as 2,20,000 top rankers of JEE Main 2017 were eligible for appearing in JEE Advanced 2017, however, only 1.74 lakh (approx) candidates had registered for the entrance examination for admissions into B.Tech programmes at IITs. Last year also, as many as 42, 291 eligible candidates amongst 2 lakh JEE Advanced selects did not register for JEE Advanced. This means that one-fifth of the total candidates did not fill the IIT admission form.
