TCS-iON and NTA share inputs on how they have prepared to conduct the JEE Main exam - one of the biggest exam in engineering and the real test of the NTA. From question paper setting, anti-cheating mechanism to automated evaluation, all that goes in the background of JEE Mains and other exams
JEE Main 2019: ‘Here is tomorrow’s question paper,’ any such claims are false as it is impossible to leak the exam set by the CBT system, claims Venguswamy Ramaswamy, global head, TCS iON. One of the biggest and most anticipated competitive exams in India, Joint Entrance Exam Main starts from January 8 and will be conducted by the newly constituted National Testing Agency (NTA) for the first time in computer-based testing (CBT) format.
Among the latest developments, the NTA has issued a special advisory for the frisking staff asking them to be more sensitive. “We have asked the frisking staff to be more sensitive, especially towards the female candidates,” NTA DG, Vineet Joshi told indianexpress.com.
Keeping in mind the UGC-NET controversies where two female students were not allowed to appear for the exam as they refused to remove their hijab, NTA has not issued any dress code. The dress code held importance considering this was the first time the exam was being conducted in the winters. Also, earlier there were reports that women were not allowed to wear ‘under-wired bras’ because of their metal content but Joshi clearly informed that no dress code is needed and the NTA has secured the centres well. Here is how the NTA and its partner will secure the JEE.
Firstly, what is CBT? According to the TCS-iON, the digital assessment wing of TCS, who will be conducting the exam has informed indianexpress.com. “In the CBT or computer-based testing format, the exam is conducted on a computer but not online. The question paper in an encrypted format reaches every exam centre and is decrypted only when the first ever candidate clicks the question paper. Which ensures that no one except the student has seen the final questions.” The CBT exam can also be called LAN-based exam.
