JEE Advanced consists of two papers that include 54 questions each. Each of these papers tests the candidates’ knowledge in 3 subjects namely Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. Among other types of questions, there are a good number of numerical value questions. Under the numerical type questions, the candidates require solving the questions in their mind or on a rough piece of paper. The final answer derived after the calculations need to be written in the space given in the answer sheet.
These questions are a bit tricky and may seem difficult to answer even as the candidates are able to solve these at length. Students often get perplexed about the precise answer to these questions.
In order to end this ambiguity, IIT Kanpur has released the revised evaluation norms for numerical type answers for JEE Advanced 2018. These evaluation norms shall be followed while checking and marking the numerical type questions in JEE Advanced 2918 exam. Here is a look at the same:
