It was all the more really in the sympathy with the admission seekers deciding on the engineering courses. They were asked to appear at the entrance examinations centres with straightforward simple demanding rules because the examining body only knew that it was good and considered those freshly defined instructions as a sort of cutting edge for the usual entrance JEE test every year. The kind instructions for the candidates were cleared such as wear clothes which might not make any kind of doubt, not to wear long shoes, put traditional wrist clock, have no electronic gazettes and bring transparent pencil boxes. However, this uncomplicated logic would naturally be strongest in wild entrance examinations days, when the optimistic aspirants do not merely undergo any pressing entry restriction before going in the examination room.
Could the candidates appearing at the IIT’s JEE (Advanced) anticipate splendid success by the feat violation of rules? If absolutely not, instant instructions were somehow gauche, as candidates asserted adding what we would wear was now a hot concern of the examining bodies. Though the command was not stopping the students from putting on more of a designer dress but quite unclear in on the first look what exactly they should dress at the special time.
It can be construed that the days are not far off when the examinees would approach the examination centres in the uniform decided by the examination controllers. They might not have thought about it but it seemed imminent. This is no rumour but still a gossip at this point of time, in fact. The time is changing fast. So what comes about unexpectedly cannot be unanticipated in the shifting scenario. The dress will be in accordance with the nature of competition one is going to appear. It has also been cleared that the examinees should possibly avoid wearing long shoes and put on a kind of footwear suitable for getting into the examination centres.
It someway meant they should better sport slippers and enter the threshold of various centres posing like bucolic or leftists. Instead of making the security tight all around the respective centres, there was enough pressure up on the examinees to grow up to be unsophisticated for a complete day as the entrance examination is flawlessly completed in the two separate shifts. It is far more poetical or epicurean, suitably speaking in one go. It is far more creative than the Tennyson’s Palace of Art. It is more imaginative because it is based on a contrast, a contrast between the confidence and the doubt within the realm of the learning shock and the tougher test.
It is far more poetical, because there is in it a note of guard, almost of confrontation; a note of being overwhelmed by the tougher questions of physics and easier queries of Chemistry; of making examinees totally miserable in the belly of the Indian examination centre presenting a view of the guarded fort.
