New Delhi: The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) have announced that they will not be reopening the application process for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Advanced, after facing demands from students and parents to do so.
The JEE Advanced is the gateway to admission in the prestigious IITs and is considered one of the toughest exams in India. The application process for JEE Advanced was initially open from September 11 to 16, 2022. However, due to technical glitches, the registration window was extended till September 20, 2022.
Despite the extension, many aspirants faced issues while registering for the exam. As a result, some students and parents demanded that the application process be reopened to provide another opportunity for those who were unable to apply due to technical difficulties.
However, the IITs have decided against reopening the application process, citing several reasons. One of the reasons given was that the IITs had already extended the registration window, and reopening it again would not be fair to the students who had registered on time. Additionally, the IITs noted that the JEE Advanced is a national-level exam and cannot be delayed or rescheduled for the convenience of a few students.
Furthermore, the IITs stated that they had taken several steps to address the technical issues that arose during the initial registration process. They also advised students to seek help from the JEE Advanced helpdesk or the National Testing Agency (NTA) if they were facing any technical difficulties while registering for the exam.
The decision by the IITs not to reopen the application process for JEE Advanced has disappointed many aspirants who were hoping for another chance to apply. However, the IITs have assured the students that they are taking all necessary steps to ensure a smooth and fair conduct of the JEE Advanced.
In conclusion, the IITs have announced that they will not be reopening the application process for JEE Advanced, despite demands from some students and parents. The decision has disappointed many aspirants, but the IITs have assured them that they are taking all necessary steps to ensure a fair and smooth conduct of the exam.
