Services of a Scribe for PwD Candidates

  • The services of a scribe (amanuensis) are available only to those PwD (Persons with Disability) candidates who are visually impaired, dyslexic, have disability in the upper limbs or have lost fingers / hands thereby preventing them to properly operate the Computer Based Test (CBT) platform. The PwD candidates who desire to avail the services of scribe need to opt for the same during the online registration of JEE (Advanced) 2018. PwD candidates permitted to use the services of a scribe will get one hour compensatory time i.e., end time will be 13:00 IST for Paper 1 and 18:00 IST for Paper 2.

  • To avail the services of scribe, the candidate should request the Chairman, JEE (Advanced) 2018, of the respective zonal coordinating IIT in the prescribed format (FORM-SCRIBE). The requisition, along with a copy of the PwD certificate (FORM-PwD [II/III/IV, whichever is applicable]) OR a copy of the certificate of Dyslexic candidate (FORMS-DYSLEXIC 1 and DYSLEXIC 2, whichever is applicable), should be uploaded at the time of online registration for JEE (Advanced) 2018.

  • Zonal coordinating IITs will make arrangements, through the Presiding Officer (PO) of the Examination Centre, to provide a panel of scribes (amanuenses). Such Scribes will be students of Class XI from the science stream with Mathematics as one of the subject. The PwD/dyslexic candidate has to choose a scribe from this panel. The candidates will NOT be allowed to bring their own scribes.

  • The candidate will be allowed to meet the panel of scribe one day prior to the examination i.e., on Saturday, 19 May 2018, in the presence of the IIT Representatives (IRs), Presiding Officer (PO) and an Invigilator, and choose her/his scribe.

  • If it is found at any stage that a candidate has used the services of a scribe, and consequently availed the benefit of one extra hour, but does not possess the extent of disability that warrants the use of a scribe, she/he will be excluded from the process of evaluation, ranking and admission. In case such a candidate has already been admitted to any IIT, her/his admission will be cancelled.
