CBSE Releases Guidelines for Scribes for JEE Main

Last Updated - January 15, 2018

Central Board of Secondary Education has revised its guidelines for scribe services to the person with disabilities appearing for Joint Entrance Exam. JEE Main is a nationwide Joint Entrance Exam conducted by CBSE for the admission in BE/B.Tech and B.Arch. courses. The exam is scheduled for April 8, 2018 in offline mode while the online mode will be held on April 15 – 16.

CBSE has released a corrigendum on January 10, 2018 for all the JEE Main aspirants. There are many such candidates who apply for the exam, so the change in the provision is to bring notice to such candidates.

The guidelines were earlier released in the Information Brochure of JEE (Main) 2018. These were mentioned under para 2.5 (Provisions for Persons with Disabilities) page 10 of the Information Bulletin.

Scribe services are given to the candidates who are Visually Impaired, Dyslexic or those who have disability in the upper limbs or have lost finger/hands which make them unable to fill the Optical Response Sheet (ORS). Basically these are the candidates who are unable to fill the bubbles on their ORS sheet because of any kind of difficulty as stated in the JEE Main brochure.

The amendment stated that only Class 11 students from the Science stream, with Mathematics as one subject can be the scribe for persons with disabilities. In earlier bulletin, only Class X students could only be the scribes for the appearing candidates.

The notice released for persons of disabilities can be found below:


Guidelines for Scribes for JEE Main

  1. The candidates with disability should fill in the type and percentages of disability correctly in the online JEE Main Application Form. Any incorrect information can affect their candidature.
  2. Only the candidates, who have 40% or more disability, will be provided Scribe/Reader on the request of the candidate.
  3. The candidates will have choice of opting their own scribe/reader or may submit the request to the center superintendent.
  4. After the request of the candidate, the centre superintendent will identify the scribe/reader students for the candidate. This is only task of centre superintendent to choose a scribe for the candidate.
  5. However, if a candidate requests to meet the scribe before exam, they would be allowed to meet the scribe only a day before the examination to verify whether the scribe is suitable or not.
  6. One other provision is that 1 hour (60 minutes) compensatory time will be allowed to the candidates with 40% or more disability irrespective of the fact they are availing the facility of a scribe/reader.
