IIT clarifies on Mistakes in IITJEE, No Re-exam

In a meeting of the The Joint Admissions Board on Sunday, It was decided not to conduct IIT-JEE 2010 again. The IIT JAB had conducted IIT-JEE 2010 for admissions to IITs. The meeting was called to discuss errors in JEE paper and devise corrective measures to ensure candidates don’t suffer. Four kinds of errors were identified and corrective measures published .

IIT said each ORS (both for paper one and two) will be evaluated in two ways: sequential question number-wise and subject headings-wise. In each case, the higher score of the two evaluations will be taken as the candidate’s score. Should one of the ways of evaluating lead to a mark below the minimum qualifying mark in one of the subjects, the other way will be deemed to be the higher of the two scores.
