The rules for the IIT-JEE (Advanced) examination, to be held on May 20, 2018 have been framed based on the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE).
The exam will be computer based for the first time. According to the initial proposal, applicants may be permitted to occupy their seats 30-40 minutes before the start of the test, and can log in and start reading the instructions 20 minutes before beginning the test.
Candidates, however, will not be allowed to enter the hall after 9:30 am for the morning session and after 2:30 pm for the afternoon session. Neither can they leave the hall before the test ends. This was decided at the meeting of the IITJEE sub-committee.
“A virtual calculator will be available on the computer screen during the examination. Students can only use it during the examination. This time the candidates have been barred from using their own calculators, mobile devices, watches or even electronic devices,” added the source.
