Joint Admission Board members said they were hopeful that the online version of the JEE Advanced will guarantee that there is more prominent exactness and more transparent in the test.

The joint entrance exam (JEE-Advanced), the door to esteemed Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT), will be led totally online from one year from now, to make logistics and evaluations less demanding.

The HRD ministry had before presented the choice of taking the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Mains online. The JEE (Mains) is the entrance examination for admission to engineering courses offered in India and a qualifying exam for JEE (Advanced) which is required for admission to the renowned IITs and NITs.

As of now, choices to give the JEE Advanced exam online exists in just a couple of centres in few states of the country.

Another suggestion that was cleared by the board is that of outlining the question paper deductively by keeping questions at the trouble level of 1 to 10.

This year, a few candidates had brought up protests over a few issues in both the papers of JEE Advanced being erroneous. Following this, IIT Madras had chosen to grant 18 extra marks to every one of the students showing up in the examination, regardless of whether they had endeavoured the questions. This was tested by the candidates and the issue was taken up in the Supreme Court.

Prof Bhaskar Ramamurthi, Director, Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, and Chairman of JAB said, “The Apex Body for the conduct of JEE Advanced, at its meeting today, has decided that JEE (Adv) will be conducted in online mode from 2018 onwards. Further information regarding the examination will be provided by the JAB in due course.”
