Next Hearing on JEE errors on 5th July

Rajasthan high court today fixed the 05 july as the next hearing date regarding the errors in the IIT-JEE'10 paper. High court has virtually killed the hopes of lacs of students who were expecting some justice from the judiciary. It seems that even judiciary is no mood to take a head on with MHRD.
Judiciary has played a supporting role to the wrong doings of MHRD by not taking a tough stand against the IITs. One thing is very clear govt. can get away with any wrong doing, law and judiciary is just a part of the game.

How will BITSAT justify this time loss of a student....


With respect I am to say that there was a server failure for 10 minutes during my son exam today during time slot of 12 :30pm to 03:30pm at Asia pacific institute of management, Delhi dated 24th may 2010 .Officer In charge announced that there was Server failure and due to that all computer got hang up in the hall for some time but clock was running . This 10 minutes loss has not allowed my son to attempt the paper fully as a result he was lack of few marks to get admission in one of prestigious institute BITS PILANI. This is the question of his career .I also have contacted the officers of administration and they told me that they are unable to give the further time since it is system clock .This 10 minutes loss due to server failure has not been compensated to my son 's Exam. Therefore i request you to personally look into the matter and take the required action as early as possible .I am waiting for favorable reply from your end.

Flawed paper and flawed execution

The first hint of the problem in JEE 2010 came within minutes of the start of examination at 0900 hrs on April 11. Students found that the ORS (Optical Response Sheet) on which answers are to be given had a mismatch with the question paper. While the question paper had questions numbered 30-58 for Mathematics and 59-87 for Physics, the ORS showed 30-58 for Physics and 59-87 for Mathematics. The candidates who noticed the discrepancy asked for clarifications. However, the same must come from the organizing IIT, which was IIT Madras this year. With calls coming from all over India, it is said that the phone lines at IITM jammed. For example, IIT Bombay could connect officially to IIT Madras only by 11 AM, two hours into the examination.

IIT JEE declared the most awaited controversial result today

After much ho lala IIT JEE declared the result today, result was declared amidst lot of litigations which were filled in the various high courts and Supreme Court of India about various irregularities in the question paper.

Soon after the declaration of the results the complains are coming from different part of the country about its credibility. Some Hindi medium students who were scoring around 240 marks are not even selected where as the few English medium students who were scoring around 200 have been selected. It seems Hindi medium students are the worst effected lot of JEE errors in the papers.

Supreme Court dismisses the PIL on stay of results of IIT JEE 2010

After Delhi H.C. order on 19 May the appeal for stay of results of IIT JEE 2010 is also dismissed by supreme court today. The IIT-JEE result is to be declared May 26.

eight questions wrong in NTSE stage 2 MAT paper

NTSE Stage 2 MAT Paper

13.        The dart does not follow any logical sequence in the outermost region of the square.

33.        The question should be - How many angles are there above the straight line ? According to the given question the answer can be 15.

34.        The number of triangles are more than 28 (approximately 40).

54.        Answer of the given question should be South-East which is not given in the option.
The explanation is as under –

61.        Since option 1, 2 & 4 cannot be the correct answer. Hence, the most appropriate ans is option 3. But again option 3 can not be the right explanation because the position of the given triangles in the given figure should be interchanged.

74.        In this question the logic is not common in all the figures. In 1st and 3rd figure the logic is (22 + 32) – (2 + 3) = 8 and (62 + 72) – (6 + 7) = 72 but in 4th figure if it follows the same logic then the result is (82 + 92) – (8 + 9) = 128 but in the fourth figure the result is given 129.

NTSE stage 2 MAT Papers errors

There are three questions which seem to be wrong in MAT paper
Q. No 33   Angles will be much more than 10 or 11 however if you calculate angle above the base line only then the answer is coming 10. so what NCERT decides in this question is still not clear.
Q. No 34  No of triangles are asked but if we calculate the triangles it is coming much more than 28  so really speaking none of the option seems to be correct, however in the best case scenario 28 could be the right answer
Q. No 45   Direction test question the correct answer is coming SOUTH- EAST which is not there in the options , answers could be EAST or SOUTH
this should go for bonus
Q. No 91 there could be two answers 5 or 6, so this should also go for bonus
Q. No 93 none of the option seems to be correct

We will soon put the analysis of SAT paper too on the blog

NCERT conducts the stage 2 examination

It is really good to know that NCERT has given the papers to NTSe stage 2 appeared students. Kudos to NCERT for going in the transparent way. It will be prudent at this juncture that NCERT asks the states SIERTs also to follow the same
