Changes in the test as well
The JEE Mains, which operates after two years in Covid, looks likely to be a bit tougher this time around. Experts say this is due to changes in the testing process. For the last two years there has been a negative marking in Section-A. Now it is also included in Section-B. Putting this to the numerical questions given in this section will require the students to give a quick answer. This question paper is for a total of 20 marks. Meanwhile, a total of 90 (4 marks per question) questions must be answered in the past. This brings the total number of marks to 360. Now 75 out of 90 questions have to be answered. The remaining 15 can be taken as a choice. With this the question paper will be only 300 marks.

‘Main’ difficulties for students
The National Testing Agency has revived the tie-breaker policy, which was abolished in 2021. The uniqueness of this approach is that age is also taken as a standard when achieving a score equal to the ranks. Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry marks will be taken into consideration before two students achieve equivalent marks in the examination. The ratio of wrong answers is then examined subject-wise. Age is taken into consideration if there are still equal marks. Even then if the two are equal, the ranks are determined by looking at who has applied earlier. The first phase of the JEE Mains exam will be held from July 23 to 29, followed by the second installment from July 21 to 30. Nearly 11 lakh people across the country are writing this test.
Another 500 seats in IITs!
Seats in Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) across the country are likely to increase from this academic year. Official sources said that last year (2021–22) there were 16,232 seats and this time it is expected to increase by another 500 seats. They say they will be added to the list as soon as the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JOSA) counseling notification is issued. IITs are moving towards new courses in line with the changes coming around the world. Changes are also being made in the curriculum.

IITs have designed some new courses in this order. B.Tech Biotechnology and Bioinformatics, Computing, Engineering and Industrial Chemistry courses were newly introduced at IIT Hyderabad last year. This year too, steps are being taken towards a few more research-oriented courses. IITs are moving towards Statistics and Data Science and Medical related courses. These are expected to be approved soon. IITs in other regions, on the other hand, are also pushing for new courses. IITs, IIITs and government-sponsored technology institutes are also designing computer courses to suit the needs of the market. In this context, there is a possibility of an increase of 500 seats this time in IITs alone, said a senior IIT official in Hyderabad.
