KOLKATA: With the JEE Mains and JEE Advanced exams being postponed till the last week of May, IIT Kharagpur has developed preparation modules and made them available with the National Digital Library, the largest online library in the country, which is situated inside the institute, to help students prepare themselves during the lockdown phase.
The decision to postpone the exams is posing a problem for the students who have to mostly depend on coaching centres or other tutorials because of the physical distancing. They are finding it difficult to depend on online resources and e-learning materials to continue with their preparation. IIT Kharagpur has developed a preparatory module for JEE and JEE Advanced, available free for students on the NDLI platform. Students can visit the NDLI website https://www.ndl.gov.in/ or https://ndl.iitkgp.ac.in/ or log on to the NDLI mobile application.
The website of NDLI now has a special section called, 'Corona Outbreak: Study from Home', which students can access. The repository contains NDLI Tutorial for JEE Advanced for 12 years and Practice Questions and Solutions for JEE Preparation. Content for JEE Mains for the past five years is also getting readied and will be added to the site soon, said experts. "The solutions have been prepared by subject matter experts and doctoral students in related areas. Hence, the solutions are diverse and students can opt for their preferred methods. Further we have provided reference materials for related problems, so students can explore further," said Partha Pratim Das, a faculty and joint-principal investigator, NDLI.
Students can browse the "School" option under the 'Corona Outbreak' module or search by relevant keywords. The developers recommend registering on the portal for better user experience, though the resources are available without any restrictions.
