As per office memorandum of the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment F.No. 34-02/2015-DD-III dated August 29, 2018, 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) 2021.
The scribe will help the Candidate 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 Chairman, JEE (Advanced) 2021, 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) 2021. The formats for the request letter and PwD/Dyslexic certificate are given in Annexure-II: CERTIFICATE FORMATS.
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 subject. 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 in the presence of the IIT Representatives (IRs), Test Centre Administrator (TCA) and an Invigilator, and choose the scribe.
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.
