Services of Scribe
As per office memorandum of the Ministry of Social Justice and
Empowerment the PwD candidates who are visually impaired OR dyslexic
(severe) OR have disability in the upper limbs OR have lost fingers / hands
thereby preventing them from properly operating the Computer Based Test
platform may avail the services of a scribe (amanuensis).
PwD candidates who desire to avail the services of a scribe need to opt for this
during the online registration of JEE (Advanced) 2022.
The scribe will help the candidate only in reading the questions and/or keying
in the answers as per the directions of the candidate. A scribe will NEITHER
explain the questions NOR suggest any solutions.
To avail the services of scribe, the candidate should request the Chairperson,
JEE (Advanced) 2022, of the nearest 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 copy of the
certificates of Dyslexic Candidate (FORM- DYSLEXIC 1 and DYSLEXIC
2), whichever is applicable, must be uploaded at the time of online registration
for JEE (Advanced) 2022. The formats for the request letter and
PwD/Dyslexic certificate are given in Annexure-II: CERTIFICATE
Zonal coordinating IITs will make necessary arrangements, through the Test
Centre Administrator (TCA) of the Examination Centre, to provide a panel of
scribes (amanuenses). Scribes will be students of Class XI from the science
stream with Mathematics as one of the subjects. The PwD/dyslexic (severe)
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 scribes one day prior to the
examination i.e., July 02, 2022 (Saturday) in the presence of the IIT
Representatives (IRs), Test Centre Administrator (TCA), and an Invigilator,
and choose any one of the scribes.
If it is found at any stage that a candidate has availed the services of a scribe and / or availed the compensatory time, but does not possess the extent of disability that warrants the use of a scribe and/or grant of compensatory time, the candidate will be excluded from the process of evaluation, ranking and admission. In case such a candidate has already been admitted to any IIT, the admission of the candidate will be cancelled.
