Students to get full marks for wrong questions in IIT-JEE 2011

Wrong Questions in IIT-JEE

Admitting mistakes in the IIT-JEE maths paper, the IIT administration today said that all aspirants will get full marks for the two questions in which errors were reported. The decision was taken on the report submitted by a committee, constituted by the IIT administration to probe into the mistakes in the maths paper, IIT Kanpur Director Prof Sanjay Govind Dhande said. Dhande asserted that students will not suffer due to any administrative snag.

When asked how much marks the two questions carried, he said he was not aware of the marking scheme. Candidates who did not attempt those questions will also get marks as the questions did not carry any negative marking, Dhande said.

IIT-Kanpur had constituted a committee after three IIT-JEE aspirants had lodged complaints alleging errors in two maths questions. The committee found that out of the two mistakes, one was a printing error while the other’s sentence was wrongly framed, Dhande said. He said that the JEE results will come out on their scheduled date of May 25. Meanwhile, the model answer sheet of the JEE was also uploaded today on IIT-Kanpur’s website.
