IIT Kharagpur has developed a preparatory module for JEE available to students for free on the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) platform which is situated inside the institute, to help students prepare themselves during the lockdown. According to recent updates, JEE Main is most likely to be conducted in the last week of May 2020.
The module created by IIT Kharagpur is expected to satisfy students' need for adequate online resources and e-learning materials to continue with their preparation. This will help those students who were dependent on coaching centres and other tutorials for their preparation and were finding it difficult to get good online resources and e-learning materials.
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 for accessing the JEE preparation module from IIT Kharagpur
The NDLI website has a special module named "Corona Outbreak: Study from Home" added to which contains a wide range of digital content including those preparing for competitive examinations such as JEE Advanced. The repository contains NDLI Tutorial for JEE Advanced for 12 years and Practice Questions and Solutions for JEE Preparation. The content of JEE Main for the past 5 years is being created and will be made available to the candidates very soon.
Prof Partha Pratim Das, Joint-Principal Investigator, NDLI stated, "The solutions have been prepared from the perspective of undergraduate students who have cleared JEE as well as 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 the topics".
