After declaration of JEE-Advanced 2017 results, while a lot of students are busy with the celebration of being selected, there are thousands of other students, who feel cheated after knowing that 18 marks out of total 366 marks i.e. 4.92% of total marks have been awarded as bonus marks to all students.

About 1.6 lakh students appeared for JEE-Advanced 2017. Total marks were 366, which means, on an average, a difference of one mark between two students is equivalent to a difference of around 400 ranks.  

Some students, who put considerable amount of time and efforts, trying to solve these bonus questions were awarded the same marks as those students, who did not put any time and effort in those questions. A meritorious student who could have scored these 18 marks, had these questions been correct and unambiguous, is now scoring the same marks as a student who didn’t even try them, which brings a considerable difference to his/her rank.

A bonus of 18 marks is unprecedented in history of IIT-JEE, and IITs have a reputation to maintain. Providing fair marking scheme for bonus questions or Reconducting IIT-JEE 2017 Advanced paper seem to be the only ways to maintain the impartiality of the selection process.

We request Shri Prakash Javadekar, Minister of Human Resources Development, also Chairperson of IIT Council to take necessary steps for implementation of the same.
