IIT JEE : What was new this time
The two-paper examination carried only 408 marks this year as against last year's 480
Negative marking was restricted to just the first section in Paper I, and not two sections like in 2011
Students were relieved that this year they were allowed to take a copy of the optical mark recognition (OMR) sheet home to verify how they have fared in the examinations
The Mathematics section in Paper II was a bit tough
Though very few errors were sited in the question paper this year, experts said that an error has crept into Paper II. In code II, question number 26, the data given does not give any corresponding answer in the options section, IIT-coaching experts from Sri Chaitanya Group of Institutions said.
