To get admission to any of the IITs or the ISM the JEE (Advanced) candidate has to quality against any one of the below mentioned conditions : 

  • The candidate should be within the top 20 percentile (category-wise) of successful candidates in the respective Class 12 (or equivalent) board examination. 
  • The candidate must have has scored 75% (for GEN or OBC-NCL) or 70% (SC, ST or PwD) of total marks in the Class 12 (or equivalent) board examination. 
  • To calculate the top 20 percent marks  the total of the marks in the following  five  subjects  will  be  considered
  • Physics, (2) Chemistry, (3) Mathematics, (4) a language (if the candidate has chosen more than one language, then the one with the higher marks will be considered to give advantage to the candidate), and (5) any other subject but not from the above four in which the candidate has got the highest marks in Class 12. 
  • For calculation of the aggregate marks for the selected five subjects, if the marks which the candidate has got in a subject is not out of 100 (e.g out of 80 etc. or 110 etc.), then the marks will be accordingly scaled (up or down) to 100 so that the total marks is out of 500 for the selected 5 subjects. 
  • If  a  Board  in which the candidate has given Class 12th exam gives  letter  grades  without  providing  an  equivalent percentage or marks then in such cases the candidate must get a certificate from the Board specifying the equivalent marks and also provide it at the  time  of  online  acceptance  of  the  allocated  seat.  The candidate must ensure that this certificate is provided else if the certificate is not provided then the decision taken by the Joint Implementation Committee of JEE (Advanced) will be final. 
  • In case there is a situation where any of the 4 subjects Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Language have not been assessed in the final year (e.g., in a 3-year diploma course), then the marks for the same subject from the previous year will be used for calculating the top 20 percentile cut-off and percentage of aggregate marks. 
  • Candidates who appeared in the Class 12 (or equivalent) examination for the first time in 2014 and wish to (or has to) reappear in 2015, should reappear in all the subjects. 
  • If a Board gives total marks considering both Class 11 and Class 12 exams (in the 10+2 system), then only the Class 12 marks will be considered. If a Board gives aggregate marks taking into account the results of all 3 years of a 3-year diploma or courses of equal duration, then only the marks scored in the final year will be taken into consideration. Likewise, for Boards which  go along a  semester  system,  the  marks  scored  in  the  final  two semesters will be considered. 
  • If a Board does not provide marks which the candidate has scored in individual subjects but gives only the total marks for all subjects, then the total marks given by the Board will be taken into consideration. 
  • The criteria, as specified above, is applicable “in toto” to all the candidates including foreign nationals.
