JEE scan model in lectureship test

The college service commission, following in the footsteps of the Bengal JEE board, will upload model answers of the state eligibility test on its website and seek feedback from examinees and experts before drawing up the final answers based on which the scripts will be scanned.

The move, aimed at making the assessment more transparent, follows the panel’s decision to distribute carbon copies of answer scripts written on optical mark recorder sheets to the candidates.

“We have decided to upload model key answers on our website — — and invite feedback from examinees and experts. Once our subject experts go through the feedback, the final answers will be prepared and posted on the site. The scripts will be assessed following the final answers,” commission chairman Siddhartha Majumdar told Metro.

The scanned answer scripts, too, will be uploaded on the website for the benefit of the examinees.

The state JEE board this year finalised the answer keys for mathematics, physics, chemistry and biological sciences after considering the feedback it had received following the uploading of the model answers on its website. The modifications or corrections based on the feedback were mentioned against the respective answers.

“Our test will cover as many as 23 subjects but that won’t come in the way of implementing the JEE board’s model,” said an official in the college service commission.

The commission, drawing up a list of vacancies in the colleges, is likely to hold the next test in April 2013.

The state eligibility test comprises three papers. Two of them have been objective for some years while the third will be so from the next test.
