JEE, IIT, Engineering

Engineering aspirants will soon have access to solved question papers of all Joint Entrance Examinations (JEE) held in the last 50 years.

The central government and the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) have jointly decided to release the papers through an app and a portal.

The IIT-JEE is one of the biggest and the most difficult engineering entrance exams. It is believed that the decision to provide solved question papers will help students prepare well for the exam.

HRD minister Smriti Irani said that the questions for JEE exams will be prepared keeping in mind the 12th Class syllabus and to reduce the level of difficulty for students.

The ministry has also suggested IITs to provide video and audio lectures to aspirants for better preparation.

According to her, the move will also address the concerns of many people who’ve complained about the coaching industry, which was worth Rs.40,000 crore in 2011 as per a report by rating agency Crisil.

Currently, this industry’s worth is being estimated at Rs.50,000 crore.

The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) for admission to IITs, NITs and other top engineering institutes in the country is considered one of the toughest competitive exams in the country. The level of preparation for this entrance exam cannot be restricted to Class XII syllabus.

Hence, students end up going for coaching classes to increase their chances of success.

To address that, “for the first time, the government, in conjunction with the IIT Council, will ensure that the question papers (of JEE) conform to Standard XII syllabus,” Irani said.

“If degree-level questions are asked, we cannot expect a school student to answer,” she added.

Irani also said that language should not be barrier for students in different parts of the country and therefore all the study material will be available to them in 13 languages.

On another note, Satya Narayanan R., executive chairman of CL Educate (formerly Career Launcher) which runs a chain of coaching institutes, said: “I don’t think coaching industry is a menace. The aim of coaching centres and government is one—to benefit students. Opening up the JEE papers is a good move and shall benefit students. But the question is why students are going for coaching. The answer is, the formal education system has gaps which have not been plugged for decades.”
