(Warning to JEE Main Aspirants 2024) New Delhi: The National Testing Agency (NTA) has issued a stern warning to JEE Main 2024 aspirants, cautioning against engaging in any unfair practices during the upcoming examinations. The JEE Main exams are scheduled to be held on January 24, 27, 29, 30, 31, and February 1, and the NTA has made it clear that strict action will be taken against those found violating the guidelines.
The NTA has released a set of guidelines outlining specific ‘unfair practices’ that students must avoid at all costs. Engaging in these activities could lead to the cancellation of the exams for the individuals involved. These guidelines have been emphasized on the official website to ensure candidates are aware of the consequences associated with such malpractices.
Here is the list of unfair practices that students should steer clear of:
- Possession of Prohibited Items: Any candidate found in possession of an item or article that is prohibited in the exam hall will be treated as engaging in unfair practices.
- Impersonation or Cheating: Using someone else to write the examination (impersonation), preparing materials for copying, breaching examination rules, or any directives issued by NTA in connection with the JEE (Main) 2024 exam.
- Assisting Others in Malpractices: Assisting other candidates in engaging in malpractices, giving or receiving assistance directly or indirectly, or attempting to do so will be considered an unfair practice.
- Unauthorized Communication: Contacting or communicating with any person, other than the examination staff, during exam time at the centre, threatening officials or candidates, using any undesirable method, or manipulating and fabricating online documents such as admit cards, rank letters, and self-declarations.
- Forceful Entry/Exit, Use of Electronic Devices: Forceful entry into or exit from the examination hall, using electronic devices after entering the examination centre, affixing or uploading wrong/morphed photographs/signatures, and possessing bits of paper are strictly prohibited.
Candidates found engaging in any of these unfair means will face serious consequences. They will be booked under the Unfair Means Case (UFM), leading to a three-year debarment from future exams and potential criminal action. Additionally, the results of JEE (Main) 2024 for candidates involved in such malpractices will be canceled and not declared. As the exams approach, students are urged to adhere strictly to the guidelines to ensure a fair and transparent examination process.
