New Delhi: An IIT professor has alleged the
just-held IIT-Joint Entrance Exam had carried "wrong
instructions" in certain questions involving 48 marks in the
Hindi version of the paper.

The Hindi version of the paper-II of the test carried
wrong instructions which could have misled students in the
Hindi heartland, Professor Rajiv Kumar, IIT Kharagpur, said

His claim today comes two days after he alleged ambiguity
in the IIT-JEE papers including that they carried certain
questions having more than one correct answer which could
prove disadvantageous to serious examinees.

As per the English version of the paper, there were
certain questions carrying 48 marks. However, the Hindi
versions presented the same questions with wrong instructions
that they carried 18 marks. These questions were in Section IV
of Paper II, he alleged.

Nobody from IIT could not be contacted for a reaction to
the professor`s allegation.
