JEE Advanced 2016 – Things to Remember

  • The topmost sheet of the Answer booklet will be Optical Response Sheet (ORS), which is designed for machine reading the answers. It will have two pages stuck together with no carbon in between.
  • Candidates have to mark the appropriate bubbles (A, B, C, D) for each question on the front page, which will automatically be marked/imitated in the sheet below. Hence, students must be extremely careful that they do not disturb the alignment of these two sheets or separate them at any point of the exam.
  • Use only black ballpoint pen for the exam. Read the instructions carefully as one cannot change the answers that have been marked.
  • While marking an answer, apply adequate pressure on the answer sheet. The pressure should not be too much to pierce the bubbles and tear the sheet or so light that the impressions on the second sheet are not visible properly.
  • The invigilator gives the copy of the answer sheet at the end of the JEE Advanced exam which can be used to match and cross check with the JEE Advanced Answer key, which gets published on the official website.
