IIT-JEE had 'wrong instructions' in Hindi version: Prof



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 tonight.

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.
