This year, IIT Kanpur conducted JEE (Advanced) on May 20.
JEE Advanced Result 2018: The Gujarat High Court yesterday refused to stay the results of the 2018 JEE (Advanced) examination scheduled to be declared on June 10, saying the announcement of the results has all India ramification. Justice Biren Vaishnav ordered that the results of the JEE (Advanced) for admission to Indian Institutes of Technology for 2018, will be "subject to further orders that may be passed on the next date". The court also issued notice to the organising chairman of the JEE (Advanced) at IIT Kanpur, and fixed the next hearing of the case on June 12.
Petitions filed by three aggrieved candidates -- Anurag Jha, Chandni Tomar, and Rajesh Rai -- through their lawyer Rahul Sharma said that the organising chairman of the JEE (Advanced), 2018 at IIT Kanpur issued "clarifications regarding answers of numerical-answer-type questions" (which is section II of each of two papers) on May 21, 2018, a day after the conduction of examination.
"By issuing the impugned clarification, the respondent has raised doubts about the fairness of the admission process," it said, adding that the results as per new instructions may seriously alter the all-India ranking of the candidate petitioners.
The petition held that the clarification issued a day after the conduct of examination is "arbitrary and in violation of Article 14 of the Constitution," and sought from the high court to quash and set aside clarifications and the answer key.
It also sought the court's direction to declare the results of the JEE (Advanced) examination, 2018," as per the evaluation done in consonance of the instructions contained in the question papers".
