The JEE Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) has asked the school education boards across the country to provide them the top 20 percentile cut-off for class 12th examination results before June 10. This will help prevent the delay in admissions to Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and other engineering colleges. as reported in HT
The decision was taken at a meeting of the Council of Boards of School Education in India (COBSE). All the school boards across the country including CBSE are members of COBSE.
Candidates need to be in top 20 percentile of a school or secure minimum 75% marks in order to secure a seat in IIT or NIT. Therefore, JoSAA cannot start the counseling process until the class 12 results are declared.

The CBSE and other boards have agreed to provide the class 12th result details by the mid of May. JoSAA will use the information to prepare the cut-offs for the engineering exam. The registrations for the joint seat allocation system will begin from June 15, 2017.
The IITs and other institutes have discussed the issue of delay in engineering admissions with the COBSE due to the delay in class 12 results. The information is important for the admission process of JEE.
CBSE had postponed the class 10 and class 12 board exams this year due to assembly elections in five states. The exams will begin from March 9, a day after the last phase of polling. Despite the delay in commencement of exams, CBSE is confident of releasing the results on time. Usually, the exam starts in the first week of March and results are declared in the third week of May.
