CBSE might set up Nodal Centres for the evaluation of OMR sheets of candidates appearing for JEE Main 2017 in the offline mode. As per reports, during a meeting held recently in New Delhi, the Board members of CBSE had a long discussion contemplating on the implementation of nodal centres for the scanning and assessment of OMR sheets to save time and minimise the cost of transportation.
Every year, lakhs of students apply for JEE Main out of which around 13-14 lakhs students appear for the examination in the offline mode. After the conclusion of the examination, the OMR sheets are transported to the main centre for evaluation. The entire process from the transportation to the evaluation consumes a lot of time. The transportation cost of the OMR sheets from the 113 centres across the country also becomes quite expensive.
The Result of JEE Main 2017 along with the All India Rank (AIR) is scheduled to be declared on April 27, 2017. If the OMR sheets are evaluated in the respective nodal centres, the result can be declared sooner. Similarly, the AIR of Paper II of JEE Main 2017 is expected to be announced on May 27, 2017, as per the schedule. However, with the establishment of the nodal centres, the evaluation which usually takes 55 days will be reduced and the rank list can be prepared within 20 to 25 days.
JEE Main 2017 is scheduled to be held on April 02, 2017 in the offline mode and on April 08 and 09, 2017 in the online mode. Candidates qualifying in JEE Main 2017 will be able to take admission to 31 NITs, 20 IIITs and 18 other Government funded Technical Institutes.
