IIT-JEE 2012
The Joint Admission Board (JAB) has taken the following decisions which have been implemented successfully in the Indian Institute of Technology – Joint Entrance Examination (IIT-JEE) 2012.

1. Female candidates were exempted from paying application fees.
2. The category-wise absolute cut-off marks in each subjects and aggregate for ranking the candidates were declared well in advance allowing them to maximize the aggregate marks, after ensuring the minimum marks in individual subjects.
3. Candidates were given carbonless copy paper based answer sheets (optical response sheets) as records of their performance.
4. Before announcement of the results, answer sheets were displayed in the web alongwith the correct answer choice(s) and machine-read responses (ORS), allowing the candidates the opportunity to submit revision request in case of any perceived error in the ORS.
5. Candidates who accept seats in the earlier rounds(s) are allowed to withdraw their acceptance before the final round of seat allocation.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Human Resource Development, Shri E. Ahamed, in written reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.
