JEE Main 2019: Expect these security checks as NTA conducts UGC NET 2018 December under strict vigil
National Testing Agency, NTA yesterday conducted its first ever examination – UGC NET 2018 December examination. The testing agency, created with the sole purpose of conducting national level entrance and competitive examinations, set in place a variety of security features, which provide not only an insight into the working of the organization but also what can be expected in future, especially the next examination which is JEE Main 2019, starting from January 6, 2018.
Students and parents are advised to note that these are the measures deployed for UGC NET 2018 December examination. Since JEE Main 2019 would also be conducted by NTA, it is conjectured that similar measures would be in place.
UGC NET 2018 examination: Security Measures Employed by NTA
3 Tier Monitoring through CCTV cameras: The examination was monitored through live CCTV feeds at centre, state and national level (headquarters). As many as 598 centres were monitored through the examination by 24 state coordinators, 295 city coordinators and 742 observers. Since the number of candidates registered for UGC NET December 2018 examinations (about 9.5 lakh) is similar to the number of students registered for JEE Main 2019 January examination, a similar set up can be expected.
Over 4000 jammers were placed at various centres across 91 cities to ensure no technical methods could be used for using unfair means. Apart from these, the usual measures of security checks at the gates were in place. Candidates who appeared for the examination noted that the examination was without any technical glitch and the operations were smooth.
All candidates are reminded that NTA would be conducting computer based tests for UGC NET, JEE Main, GPAT and CMAT. The agency is currently conducting the UGC NET 2018 examinations, the results of which would be declared in January.
