As soon as HRD ministry handed over the organizing of NEET and JEE to National Testing Agency (NTA), new rules for exams have come out and will be applicable from next year. All exams will now be computerized and will be based on tools such as Artificial Intelligence, Psychometric analysis and Computer-based adaptive testing.
With this, each candidate will now get a unique set of questions, with the software picking questions randomly for candidates. In a statement, Vineet Joshi, director general of NTA, said: “The test will be 100 per cent safe. The highest level of encryption will be used so that no one can hack into the system”, Vineet to a leading newspaper.
The changes to the examination pattern include distracting candidates with multiple choice questions to fox them. “And with millions of questions (items) to be prepared instead of a couple of question papers for a particular test, you will be at the mercy of the software’s algorithm, which will pick up items at random for your test at a particular date, based on the set of difficulty-level,” an official on the condition of anonymity was quoted as saying.
