JEE Main 2018 offline (pen- paper) and online mode conducted on April 8 and April 15, 16 respectively seemed not so daunting for the candidates across the country. The difficulty level of the exam was in a way found out to be moderate to easy for a serious JEE aspirant. Most of the questions were more or less a replica of the questions seen in past question papers. However, there have been talks that the online exam was a little easier than the offline one. Also most of the candidates had chosen to sit for pen and paper based test. No technical error complaints were received from any examination centres as well.

Guidelines were Strictly Carried out at Every Centre

Not even a single candidate was allowed to carry any belongings to the examination hall except the admission card. At the same time, diabetic candidates were given permission to take transparent water bottles and eatables along with them. The examination centres also made sure a wall clock was installed inside every hall and the ball pens required for the candidates were distributed.
