The Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) is an entrance exam that secures the selected few candidates a seat in some of the most prestigious institutes, the various IIT in India for a course like Engineering. The JEE is known to be an extremely difficult paper to crack and there are students who spend a considerable amount preparing for it, but it has been seen that the entrance exam had some changes in the past few years. One important change was the introduction of JEE Main and the JEE Advanced while the other being the introduction of the online mode of examination.
This did make a significant difference in the way aspiring candidates prepared for the exam, taking into account the number of days for preparation, the ease of the exam, the distance to the center and so on. And there are times when it can end up being the deciding factor; hence a serious candidate will not leave it up to luck.
When it comes to the IIT JEE online test, the few advantages a candidate can avail are:
- Candidates get to choose their preferred timing and place, unlike the JEE Offline exam
- A student has an option to change the marked answer since it is online, unlike the offline one.
- The time is taken to mark these answers also plays into account for moments when each minute counts.
- The application fee is considerably lesser in the IIT JEE online mode and the air conditioning helps too in the summers.
The advantages of taking IIT-JEE in offline (pen and paper based) mode are
- Offline mode lets the student’s review and starts with the section they prefer unlike the IIT JEE online test and they will never face any technical failures.
- More than anything the candidates who are more comfortable with conventional mode of taking exams should probably go with the offline mode rather than the IIT JEE Online test.
Nevertheless, a candidate’s preparation is what counts the most but it is true that the mode of taking the test could be a deciding factor in stressful times.
