The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), while issuing the JEE (Main) 2016 Answer Keys on Monday, admitted that there were multiple answers to two Physics questions in the JEE (Main) question paper.
The Board through an official declaration has said that the two questions in the Physics paper had multiple answers whereas there should be only one answer. The offline and online JEE (Main) 2016 took place on April 3, 9 & 10 respectively at various centres throughout the country.
Candidates who took the JEE Main exam this year are allowed to download their OMR sheets from the official website: www.jeemain.nic.in by providing their application number, roll number and password. Candidates can also challenge the assessments made by the authority upto 5 p.m till April 22. Students must submit an online application to challenge the question paper. Challenging for one particular question would cost them a fee of Rs. 1000/-, which needs to be paid online while making the application.
2016 JEE Main results are expected on April 27. Candidates who skipped these questions on finding that they carry two correct options are now apprehensive of losing out marks, which they claim could “make a difference to the tune of 10,000 position in the JEE ranking”. Students are demanding justice from the board to which the chairman has assured that there would be “no disadvantage to students”.
