Jaipur boy fakes JEE results, lie caught just before felicitation | Jaipur News

MUMBAI/JAIPUR: Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan’s Vidyashram school in Jaipur thought it had found its poster boy: one of its students Uttam (name changed), despite a mediocre score in class XII exams, appeared to have secured All India Rank (AIR) 23 in JEE (advanced) without the help of even a coaching centre. A felicitation was planned on Tuesday morning.
However, before the function the school received a call raising doubts about the student’s score. When Uttam was summoned to the principal’s office, he logged on to the Josaa.nic website and opened the page which displayed his ranks in JEE-Advanced and JEE-Main (869). His parents, vexed with the doubting, requested everyone to stop “harassing” Uttam.
But by then, IIT Bombay was alerted and the JEE Advanced office confirmed that the marksheet was indeed “not authentic”. When candidate information was punched into the NTA site, it showed his JEE-Main rank was 3.47 lakh which did not qualify him for the JEE (Advanced).
“This candidate’s marks card is not authentic,” confirmed the JEE office at IIT-Bombay. His deception exposed, the candidate finally confessed that he had faked his results and not taken the JEE-Advanced, admitting it all in a written apology to the school.
The fraud drew attention to recent instances of such fraud at JEE exams. “Students are going to the next level. In most cases there is immense pressure from home or from close circles of friends and relatives and candidates are succumbing to such pretence,” said a JEE chairman.
Complaints against candidates have been registered from IIT zones at Bombay (1), Bhubaneswar (1), Kanpur (2) and Roorkee (2) for faking JEE (Main) report cards to enter exam centres for JEE (Advanced). The students were from Delhi, Mumbai, Kanpur (2), Ambala, Sambalpur and Moradabad. “These candidates tried to enter the examination hall with forged admit cards but were denied entry at the time of biometric registration,” said organising JEE (Advanced) chairman Suryanarayana Doolla.
In some cases, the candidates are even logging into the official website, editing the rank list and saving it in the cache of their personal computers to be presented as proof to unsuspecting family members and friends.
