The number of candidates who cleared the IIT Joint Entrance Examination after taking the test in Hindi is three times the number in 2009, apparently bucking a trend of poor performances despite question paper errors disadvantaging them.

As many as 554 candidates who took the test in Hindi have qualified, compared with 184 last year, the IITs said while declaring their results today after over a month of controversy over instruction errors.

The IIT decision to declare the number of Hindi qualifiers was a first and was a direct outcome of concerns that the errors in question papers selectively hurt students who took the test in that language.
