Answers of last months IIT joint entrance examination (JEE) will be uploaded on the JEE website tomorrow,over two weeks before the results of the exam are declared on May 18. Answersheets of all applicants who took the test will be put up on the site between May 5 and May 10,officials said today.
We will display the evaluated optical response sheets so that candidates who have complaints regarding marking have the chance to point out problems,and ensure the assessment is satisfactory, said R K Shevgaonkar,the director of IIT,Delhi,which organised this years exam.
Shevgaonkar added that response sheets were displayed online last year as well,but only after the declaration of results. A change of even a point can move ranks by hundreds. So this time we decided to upload answersheets before announcing the results so that making changes in the final list can be avoided, he said.
G B Reddy,chairman of JEE 2012,said,Students can view their answerscripts on the site and compare their answers with the answer key and the score given against each question. If they have a complaint,they can register it on the website itself.
Complaints would be assessed manually by a committee of IIT officials,and the reassessment would be final,Reddy said.
