IIT-K fails to keep marksheet promise
IIT-Kanpur had promised to release marks scored by candidates, irrespective of the fact if the student qualified or not, on the day the IIT-JEE results were to be declared.
But, all that the candidates came to know was the subject and overall cut-off, but not how much they had scored in physics, chemistry and mathematics. Those who made the grade only came to know their ranks. The unsuccessful had no clue about their marks.
Though IIT-Kanpur, which conducted this year’s JEE, says marks in each subject of all candidates would be available in a few days, the Joint Admission Board (JAB) has clearly not adhered to three big reforms it had promised.
JAB said answer keys would be available within 48 hours of JEE, but it took more than a month for them to put it in public domain.
Aspirants have been denied the opportunity to see scanned copies of their answer sheets. IIT-Kanpur says it would be made public after May 25, but no specific date has been given. Even when the answer keys were made public it was revealed that eight questions of 30 marks had wrong, ambiguous and incomplete descriptions.
