The tentative dates for the JNUEE 2019 exam have been announced by Jawahar Lal Nehru University (JNU) through an official notification. The JNU’s online entrance test is going to be conducted tentatively between December 27, 2018, to December 30, 2018, in online mode. However, the students are also been informed specifically that the exam dates released as of now for the entrance exam are only tentative and JNU reserves the right to make changes in the exam date.
JNUEE 2019 exam is going to be held in the newly switched online mode with Multiple Choice Questions of 70 marks. The exam is conducted so that the students get comprehensively evaluated on the basis of their Analytical skills, writing, and other skills that have a necessity; particularly in Social Sciences and Humanities.
The JNUEE 2019 Application form will be available very soon in the online mode on the official website. Students will be required to register themselves online on jnu.ac.in. Candidates have to provide the Email ID, Name, phone numbers, and other details.
The website of JNU also propagated the message that “The format for the JNUEE 2019-20 will be Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) through a computer-based test.”
The teachers of the JNU had earlier outraged and protested since they got a feeling of being sidelined from the admission process. A number of concerns that bothered them were – a) The change of exam mode from the pen and paper mode to the online mode, b) Change in the type of questions from subjective to objective and also c) Rapid changes and inevitable deadlines.
However, it was advised by the 12 member committee later to conduct the exam in the online mode instead of the previous offline mode. About 3 centres from the school of social sciences and language had outlined their concerns about the universities plan to conduct the JNUEE 2019 exam in the online mode to the director of admissions, Deepak Gaur. The 12 member committee also had recommended asking to replace the subjective type questions. Both the recommendations have been accepted and rapidly put to action setting asides the concerns of the Teachers.
According to the meeting held on May 28, 2018, it has been made clear that JNU will adopt online mode in entrance examination for “all the academic programmes” and that “admission to all programmes other than MPhil and PhD would be solely based on online examination results”.
“For schools and centres that wish to incorporate a subjective analysis of written skills, a short written examination would be conducted in JNU, at the time of the interviews.” The above are quoted in the MoM signed in the meeting.
