Adding more to the woes of students, minutes after the JEE-Advanced 2016 results announced the JEE advanced portal crashed. The website wasn’t up until late in the evening as the anxious students desperately continued to access their results. IIT Guwahati might have grossly underestimated the amount of traffic on the website that led to the current problem. 

As the news about students not being able to access the results popped up, a senior official from the IIT Delhi said that we have created a few mirror sites to help students check results. However, mirror website even ran quite slowly owing to the heavy traffic.
