JEE Advanced has been conducted in offline mode every year for IIT admissions.2018 would be the first year when the entrance test would be held in online mode.

 

The decision of making JEE Advanced online will have its advantages for the candidates as well as for the test conducting authorities. With the online exam, printing of papers is not required, which further reduces the chances of printing errors. For candidates, changing their answer options would also be easier, which was a challenge in OMR sheet. The move may also lead to an early declaration of the result.

 

In 2017, JEE Advanced was held in offline mode on May 21. Paper I of the test was held from 9 am to 12 pm, while Paper II was conducted from 2 pm to 5 pm. As per Professor Prem B.
