In a written reply to Careers360, IIT Madras Director and Chairman, Joint Admission Board (JAB), Professor Bhaskar Ramamurthi has confirmed that JEE Advanced 2018 will be held in online mode. According to Prof. Ramamurthi,"The Apex Body for conduct of JEE Advanced, at its meeting on August 20, has decided that the examination will be conducted in online mode from 2018 onwards. Further information regarding the examination will be provided by the JAB in due course."

 

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. Bisht, Organizing Chairman, JEE Advanced 2017, as many as 1,59,540 candidates had taken JEE Advanced 2017 whereas 2,20,000 were eligible. Out of the total candidates who had taken the test, as many as 50,455 candidates had qualified the entrance test and made it to the rank list across all categories.

 

Out of the total qualified candidates for IIT admissions, 43,318 were male, while 7,137 were female candidates. This means that out of the total qualified candidates, 86% were boys and 14% were girls. In the list of successful JEE Advanced 2017 candidates, 23,390 were from General Category, 9,043 from OBC-NCL, 13,312 from SC and 4,710 were from ST Category.
