IIT JEE Advanced results 2017: Students will get 11 bonus marks for 3 ambiguous questions

2 questions from Mathematics and 1 question from Physics section wre found to be ambiguous. In two other questions from Physics and Chemistry, marks will be awarded for any of the 2 answers.

In 2016, students got bonus marks for three questions, and in 2015, they got bonus for only one ambiguous question.

Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras,conducted the JEE Advanced 2017 exam on May 21. No one could solve the physics question on rotational dynamics. It was not clear what was wanted in the question. There was another ambiguous question which could have been interpreted in more than one way. The IIT will now give marks for both the right answers.

In the mathematics section, one question for which bonus marks will be given, was incorrect; no answer was matching.In the other question while the students were not anticipating bonus marks, the IIT played it safe as there was ambiguity. In chemistry, students will get marks for any one of the two right options.
