The decision of JEE Advanced Online exam in 2018 has come as a shock to most of the students and parents. National Testing Authority (NTA) has decided that the coming JEE Advanced exam shall be held compulsorily in online mode like JEE Main. In JEE Main, till 2018 the students had the option to appear online or offline.
Why the decision for JEE Advanced Online Examination is shocking?
Most of the students who have been studying in the coaching institutes have become used to filling OMR sheets in paper pencil mode. Even these coaching institutes in Kota and all coaching hubs all over India have denied their students access to internet, smartphone or laptop. Quite a large number of students have a lot of difficulty in even operating a laptop or desktop so much so that many of them can’t even hold and click a mouse properly. How do you expect these students to take JEE Advanced in exam in online mode.
Even educated parents in cities have all along denied access to internet to their children for the fear that they may waste a lot of time on internet instead of focusing on their studies.
Facing JEE Advanced examination in online mode is obviously tougher for these students.
What difficulties candidates would face in JEE Advanced Online Examination?
First and the biggest hurdle by almost all the students would be the orientation for an online test. Having become used to reading from printed paper, they would need to read from a computer screen. Even grown-ups find it initially difficult to read and comprehend from the computer screen. The orientation needs to be developed over months and years. Just a couple of online mock tests would not really help a student develop the right orientation for the JEE Advanced online Test.
The next major difficulty to be faced by a large number of candidates shall be the ease of using a mouse. With the increasing use of smartphone, students have somehow learnt to operate smartphone for surfing, reading, watching videos and of course, WhatsApp. But still, they are not used to operate a mouse and wheel and for JEE Advanced Online Exam, students would need to take their test on desktops with the aid of mouse.
The third major issue that’s likely to be faced by the candidates is the neck and eye movement. While you solve a problem from a printed paper, the printed paper and the rough sheet on which you are solving are on the same plane, so that there’s least movement of eyes and neck. You may even draw or mark on the given diagram or write or underline certain portions of a given question but in online mode, this is not possible. While taking your JEE Advanced Online test, you may need to redraw the diagram on the rough working sheets.
Further, the students generally mark the questions to be revisited and it’s easy for them to turn the pages fast to get to the questions they have marked. But, in the online mode, they should be swift at clicking the relevant subject tabs and scrolling through the questions or the question numbers.
Obviously, if the students don't have the right orientation, despite knowing the concepts well, they may not be able to perform well in their JEE Advanced Online exam.
How to cope with the demands of JEE Advanced Online Exam?
Firstly, all the students who are serious at cracking JEE Advanced Online exam should get a laptop or desktop with a broadband connection at home. You can also get an internet connection in your smartphone and connect it with your laptop using hotspot. Please note that you should use laptop with an external mouse and not the touch-pad because in the JEE Advanced online test, you would be provided with a mouse and not a touch-pad.
Next, you should start practicing the JEE Main and JEE Advanced in online mode at the earliest. If you are thinking that you would take a couple of mock tests in March or April to make you familiar with the online pattern, you are highly mistaken. Taking couple of JEE Advanced mock tests in online mode towards the fag end would not help you. Just a few days of online practice would leave serious gaps in your ability to read from the screen and solving on your rough sheets and then again looking back at the screen repeatedly. I have seen many people in the actual world that they take years to develop a comfort of reading from the screen. Even after years of practice, it’s not easy for them to manage their eyes and neck movement on different planes. Mind it, you would be under tremendous pressure of time and performance when you take your JEE Advanced examination in online mode in 2020. All this kind of pressure may adversely affect your score and accordingly AIR.
Unfortunately, most of the online test series for JEE Advanced that are available in the market are technically very poor. Many would be good for JEE Main only with single correct type questions. Others would miss the Matrix Type questions and would treat every matrix type question as a single correct or simple matching type problem. Some of the technology companies have come up with some kind of half-baked solutions but the contents and the quality of practice is seriously lacking.
Are you really getting pissed off?
You should not. Because at CareerOrbits, we have planned everything well in advance for your success in JEE Advanced online test.
