JEE Main 2018 computer-based examination is scheduled to be conducted on April 15 & April 16, 2018. Within few hours of the JEE Main paper pen mode test, there had been numerous arguments raised by former IITians regarding six questions in the question paper from a coaching academy model paper. It could be a coincidence but reflects the lack of seriousness while preparing the question paper as six questions in the JEE Main Physics paper were apparently from a model paper of Narayana IIT Academy provided to their students on October 20, 2016. However, the IIT trainers say that it might be a mere coincidence as all six questions are quite common.
