Monday April 09, 2012 09:09:57 AM, IANS

New Delhi: More than 500,000 Indian students Sunday sat for one of the toughest entrance tests in the country as the Indian Institutes of Technology conducted their joint entrance test, IIT-JEE 2012, at 1,067 centers across the country.

IIT-JEE came with 10 versions of test papers, coded 0 to 9, as a measure to prevent cheating. For the first time, the test takers had to mark their answers with a pen and at the end of the exam, they could take a copy of their answer-sheets home.

This year's JEE had two tests of 60 marks each, having questions from Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry with 20 questions from every subject.

"While the first exam was for 210 marks, the second was for 198 marks. However, this year, some of questions were lengthier, compared to last year," Ajay Antony, Vice President of T.I.M.E. tutorials told IANS.

The results for the IIT-JEE test would be declared on or after May 18.
