CBSE announces cut-offs for JEE Advanced

For the first time CBSE’s class XII results this year are important as weightage is being given to these scores to determine admission into Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and National Institutes of Technology (NITs).

A student has to be in the top 20 percentile of CBSE board exam scorers to be eligible to apply to IITs.

CBSE officials said, the top 20 percentile cut-off for the JEE Advanced is 391 for general categories this year.

For other backward classes (OBCs) it is 389, for scheduled castes 350, and 338 for scheduled tribes.

When students first found out that they had to be in the top 20 percentile, it was a scary prospect. They weren’t sure how much they needed to score to qualify for admission. But 391 is quite attainable as it is only around 78 per cent, students said.

“A cut-off of 391 is not at all difficult to obtain. Most students, especially IIT aspirants, would have got a score of over 450,” said a JEE trainer.

    CORRECTION TO MY Earlier Comment:

    Hi Sachin,

    Only the top 1,50,000 scorers in JEE (Main), which includes students from all categories (GE, OBC (NCL), SC, ST and PD) will be eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced).

    Students clearing the advance test after being screened in the mains will be considered for admission, provided they are among the top 20 percentile in their boards.

    Acc to Indian Express .. The new format will mean that a student will have to perform reasonably well in Class 12 to finally make it to an IIT. A CBSE student would need at least 78 per cent to be in the top 20 percentile; one of the UP board 65-66 per cent; and one of the Tamil Nadu board around 78 per cent.
