  • IIT to SC: 
  •  Around 30 thousand candidates had already been allotted seats in different engineering colleges across the country
  • The apex court had on June 30 sought response from IIT on why 18 bonus marks given to all students should not be scrapped

A petition had been filed in the SC challenging the IITs decision to donate bonous marks to students for misprinted questions in this year's IIT-JEE exam. The plea sought a stay on the counselling and admission process. The petitioner also also appealed to the court to direct IITs to revise merit list after removing the grace marks. On the last date of hearing the court had refused to stay the matter and had sought a reply from the Centre and IIT Madras (exam conducting body) on why 7 additional grace marks were awarded to aspirants who did not even attempt the questions. The JEE Advanced 2017 was conducted on 21 May. The IITs decided to give bonus marks to students who attempted 'wrong' questions, sparking a controversy.

The apex court has sought reply from the Centre and the IIT Madras (exam conducting body) on why 7 additional grace marks were awarded even to aspirants who did not attempt the questions.
IIT's have earlier decided to give 11 marks as the bonus to all students for three ‘ambiguous’ questions asked in the JEE held on 21 May 2017.
The petition, filed by IIT aspirant Aishwarya Agarwal, had sought the court’s direction to declare that the action of awarding “bonus marks” to the candidates who had appeared in the JEE (Advanced) 2017 examination was wrong and violated her right, as well as that of other students.
The petitioner also sought a direction for preparation of the AIR list after rectifying the scores of JEE . She has demanded to award marks for the incorrect questions to the candidates who had attempted the right answers. The plea has sought that the IIT Madras should re-conduct the examination and the merit list should be prepared on the basis of the new result. It also proposed to grant all students another opportunity to appear in the examination to be conducted next year.
