Must apply online for JEE Main 2014 examination

CBSE officials said, "From this year we have made entire application process online. Candidates have to apply online for JEE exam, also uploading photograph of candidate and signature and payment of fees."

The online registration will commence from 15 Nov 2013. The last date for registration is 26 Dec 2013.

Joint Entrance Examination (JEE Main) for the year 2014 exam will be held on 6th April.

JEE Main 2014 is the qualifying entrance exam for admission to National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and Centrally Funded Technical Institutions and State Funded Technical Institutions across India.

"The admission process going wholly online may not be good news to many students who are not comfortable with computers. CBSE must set up help centres, especially in the districts, to help parents and applicants," said S. Rajan, headmaster of a Corporation school.

"To move the application process completely online is risky considering the low levels of internet penetration. It may be made online for those appearing in the online mode and should be optional, keeping the physical forms in place too," said S. Vaidhyasubramaniam, Dean (planning & development), Sastra University.

Gita Prabhu, managing director, AIMS Education, said "the online admission process might force students and parents to depend on cyber café owners, agents, and others to fill up and submit their forms. Parents seek others' help in scanning and uploading documents, ticking preferences and other details. Many of these people may be unreliable and could make mistakes in the process."
