Unique Question Paper for Each JEE, NEET Candidate from Next Year.
National Testing Agency Driving Major Change To Competitive Exams Including JEE,NET And NEET.
Engineering and medical entrance examinations JEE and NEET-UG as well as UGC-NET are set to undergo major changes from next year. The competitive exams will now have separate question papers for each candidate and an option of multiple dates for appearing in the exams, reports The Times of India.
Competitive tests such as JEE main, NEET-UG and UGC NET are set for a major overhaul from next year. The changes include having a unique set of questions for each candidate, with a software picking questions at random, and multiple dates for taking an exam.
The overhaul is being driven by the new National Testing Agency (NTA), which will conduct its first exam in December 2018 — UGC NET Exam. The agency will annually test around 1.5 crore candidates.
NTA plans to rely heavily on technological tools like artificial intelligence, psychometric analysis and computer-based adaptive testing — where candidates are taken to the next level of questions once they are through with easier questions — to change the way exams are conducted in India.
“The tests will be 100 per cent safe. The highest level of encryption will be used so that no one can hack into the system,” said Vineet Joshi, director general of NTA.
NTA officials said the test will be designed in a way that rote learning and intensive coaching are not of much help to candidates unless she is thorough with the syllabus. “There will be distractors (multiple choice questions) designed to fox you. And with millions of questions (items) to be prepared instead of a couple of question papers for a particular test, you will be at the mercy of the software’s algorithm which will pick up items at random for your test at a particular date, based on the set difficulty-level,” an official said.
