JEE Advanced 2018: IIT Kanpur may introduce changes in test pattern
Bachan Thakur, 22 Aug 2017, #JEE Advanced

IIT Kanpur, which is the exam conducting authority for Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Advanced 2018 may do away with the existing exam pattern which carries only Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) in the national level engineering entrance examination for IIT admission. After the official announcement that JEE Advanced will be conducted in online mode by IIT Kanpur in 2018, it is reported that the paper of JEE Advanced 2018 may include short-answer type questions too. Till 2017, the JEE Advanced question paper had MCQs with either single or multiple correct answer options wherein the candidates had to shade the correct answer bubbles in the Optical Response Sheet. However, from the academic year 2018-19, the pattern may incorporate new type of questions.

A Times of India report quoted a JAB official saying, “Since there is no order about framing questions in a particular way, question-setters will be at liberty to introduce a variety of questions, breaking trends. Examinees will be required to think harder, and not just rely on techniques or memorisation to crack the questions. Concept-based questions will increase and the question pattern will change.”

Apart from the change in type of questions, to address the fear or difficulty which rural candidates may have in taking the test online or accessing computers, a sub-committee has been set up which will reportedly release mock test a week before JEE Advanced 2018. The purpose would be to make the rural candidates acquainted with the new test pattern. More details about the changes in exam pattern are yet to come out in the due course of time. 

 

Earlier, Careers360 had reported that JEE Advanced 2018 will be held in online mode. The decision to conduct the test in online mode was taken recently in Joint Admission Board (JAB) meeting held at IIT Madras on August 20.
