If any candidate is in possession of any of the above items, his/her candidature will be treated as unfair means and his/her current examination will be cancelled & he/she will also be debarred for future examination(s) & the equipment will be seized.

    Smoking and eating is strictly prohibited in the examination room.

    Tea, coffee, cold drinks or snacks are not allowed to be taken into the examination rooms during examination hours.

    Approach the hall invigilator in the room for any technical assistance, first aid emergency or any other information during the course of examination.

    No candidate, without the special permission of the Centre Superintendent or the Invigilator concerned, will leave his/her seat or Examination Room until the full duration of the examination. Candidates must follow the instructions strictly as given by the Centre Superintendent/Invigilators.

    The examination rooms/hall will be opened one hour before the commencement of the test. The candidates should take their seats in the examination hall 30 minutes prior to the commencement of the examination. If the candidates do not report in time, they are likely to miss some of the general instructions to be announced in the examination hall.

    Pen & Paper Test (PPT)

    Ten minutes before the commencement of the examination, each candidate will be given sealed Question Paper Booklet with an answer sheet placed inside it. Immediately on the receipt of the Question Paper Booklet, the candidate will fill in the required particulars on the cover page of the Question Paper Booklet with Ball Point Pen only. He / She will not open the Question Paper Booklet until asked to do so by the invigilator. Do not open/break the seal before the announcement.

    In case of toned / mutilated Question Paper Booklet and OMR sheet should be immediately returned to the invigilator for the replacement with another set of same series available in the examination hall/centre.

    Five minutes before the commencement of the paper the candidate will be asked to break/open the seal of the Question Paper Booklet. In case of any discrepancy, the candidate should immediately report the matter to the Invigilator for replacement of both the Question Paper Booklet and the OMR answer sheet.

    Candidates are required to fill the examination details on the OMR Sheet with Ball Point Pen. After completing this step, the candidates will wait for the instruction by the invigilator.

    After opening the Question Paper Booklet by breaking the seal, the candidate will check that the question paper booklet contains as many numbers of pages as are printed on the top of the first page.

    No candidate, under any circumstances, will be allowed to enter the examination hall 30 minutes after the commencement of the examination.

    Candidates must follow the instructions strictly as instructed by the Centre Superintendent / Invigilators.

    Candidates should not leave the room/hall without handing over their Answer Sheets to the invigilators on duty.

    A signal will be given at the beginning of the examination and at half-time. A signal will also be given before the closing time when the candidate must stop marking the responses.

    The candidates must sign on the Attendance Sheet, OMR Answer Sheet & Question Paper Booklet at the appropriate place.

    The candidate shall not remove any page(s) from the Question Paper Booklet and if he/she is found to have removed any page(s) from his/her Question Paper Booklet, he/she will be presumed to have used unfair means and shall be liable for legal action.

    Out of four answers given for each question, only one circle for the correct answer is to be darkened on the OMR Answer Sheet. Use Blue or Black Ball Point Pen to completely darken the appropriate circle, i.e. one circle for each entry. If two circles are darkened, evaluation may go wrong.

    The answer once marked is not liable to be changed. So mark cautiously.

    A light or faintly darkened circle is a wrong method of marking and liable to be rejected by the Optical Scanner. So, the circle should be properly darkened.

    Rough work shall be done only in the rough space allotted in the Question Paper Booklet.

    If the candidate does not want to attempt any question he/she should not darken the circle given against that question. Do not fold the Answer Sheet and do not make any stray marks on it.

    Code of Contact

    The candidates are governed by all Rules and Regulations of the Board with regard to their conduct in the Examination Hall. All cases of unfair means will be dealt with as per rules.Candidates shall maintain perfect silence and attend to their question paper only. Any conversation or gesture or disturbance in the Examination Room/Hall shall be deemed as misbehaviour.

    If a candidate is found using unfair means or impersonating, his/her candidature shall be cancelled and he/she will be liable to be debarred for taking examination either permanently or for a specified period according to the nature of offence.

    Changing an answer to be made cautiously: The candidates must fully satisfy themselves about the accuracy of the answer before darkening the appropriate circle as no change in answer once marked is allowed. Use of eraser or white/correction fluid on the OMR answer sheet is not permissible as the OMR answer sheets are machine gradable and it may lead to wrong evaluation.

    If more than one circle is darkened or if the response is marked in any other manner except the ‘Correct Method’ shown above, it shall be treated as wrong way of marking and ¼ (one fourth) marks i.e. one mark will be deducted for each question.

    Prior to handing over the OMR Answer Sheet soon after the examination is over, the candidate must sign the attendance sheet as a proof.

    P&P Examination is conducted from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM.

  • Online Practice Test for JEE / AEEE Aspirants Powered by Amrita School of Engineering

    We all know that digitisation is reaching the student community very fast. As you know, test for JEE conducted by NTA is going fully online from 2019. It is always good to get practiced with the computer based test. Here are some of the advantages of Computer Based Test:

    • Choosing the date and time of exam: In Computer Based Test, one can choose the date and time according to their flexibility and schedule. In Pen and Paper Test, one may have to travel miles to reach a particular exam centre at a city on a particular date.

    • Time: In the Computer Based Test the time of the exam will be pre-settle in the system. So one can complete the exam in time.

    • Seamless navigation across questions: Unlike PPT, you can easily visit the questions on single click.

    • Change the answer already marked: Questions once answered can later be changed in a matter of click. In an OMR type of examination, you cannot change the answer if you feel it is wrong. Especially when you use pen to write the examination. You can change the answer by rubbing it if you are using pencil to mark the answer. In case of CBT, you can change it after a review. This is one of the important advantages of CBT over PPT.

    • Review the questions: In all the models of Computer Based Test, you will find that you can mark a question ‘to Review’. This means that the screen will have the list of question numbers you wish to review later. That helps you to go through the answers once again and change if you feel it is not appropriate.

    • Mistakes: Any mistake can be reverted in the case of CBT, whereas in PPT it may not be possible. Like changing the answers after marking them, writing of registration number, etc.

    • No pencil, eraser, pen: If you are not using the OMR cautiously, it may get damaged. Damage can be caused because of the ink of pen, sharpness of the pencil, etc. Even if you want to erase an answer, it may affect the adjacent answer.

    • Environment friendly: There is no wastage of paper as it is fully digital. The School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, is hosting a free testing platform for you to get acquainted with the Computer Based Test. We will schedule the tests periodically and intimate you by way of email and SMS. After the test, you will know the score in each subject so that you can start preparing accordingly. Please note that the questions for each test may vary as the questions are selected by the software from a pool.
