The Maharashtra state board has taken a decision to create online portal for practice questions for JEE and NEET examinations. For this purpose MH Board has invited inputs from teachers and experts for multiple choice question in Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics.
Teachers and experts in NEET/ JEE Main prep can submit questions in the required format on the website neetqb.mh-hsc.ac.in till December 31, 2017. The step, if successful, would definitely help the lakhs of students who appear in the two competitive examinations in the country. JEE Main 2018 is scheduled for April 8 2018. The date for NEET 2018 is yet to be announced by CBSE.
The matter of immense concern is the difference in curriculum. JEE and NEET examinations follow the NCERT and CBSE syllabus for class 11 and 12, whereas states used SCERT syllabus and State Board curriculum.
State of Tamil Nadu has asked for assistance in the same, stating how the students from rural areas do not have access to the relevant prep material or facilities. Citing the discrepancies, students in the state of Odisha have also written to the board, requesting for a revert to the OJEE. Odisha is one of the few states which has shifted to JEE Main examination for admissions to the state engineering colleges.
While the states mull over the matter and students extend their preparations, Maharashtra State Board for Secondary and Higher Secondary Education, MSBSHSE has found a way to help students. The proposal is to prepare a question bank online which would provide students access to practice questions from the relevant topics.
