870 Marks must for Eligibility to Write IIT-JEE

Students from the state need to score more than 870 out of 1,000 in Intermediate this year to be eligible for an IIT seat. Till date, 600 in Inter had been enough for students to be eligible to appear for IIT-JEE.

However, the new JEE (Advanced), which is replacing IIT-JEE from 2013, mandates students to figure in the top-20 percentile list in their respective Board exams to be eligible to appear for the new test.

Intermediate students thus need to score over 872, the highest cut-off marks in the country, to remain in the top-20 percentile list.
The figure was arrived at after taking the average performance of the last five years into consideration. Students from Andhra Pradesh and West Bengal will have a tougher time becoming eligible for the Joint Entrance Examination (Advanced) when compared to students from other states. Even students who opt for Class XII Board exams in CBSE and ICSE from the state will be at a disadvantage over others due to higher cut-off marks.

However, it will be a cakewalk for students from states such as Bihar, Haryana, Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh due to lower cutoff marks.

As per another survey conducted by the Council of Boards of Secondary Education (CoBSE), AP students need to secure over 87.2 per cent in Inter exams to remain in the top-20 percentile list, while it is 78.17 per cent in the case of Tamil Nadu.

For CBSE students, the cut-off percentage for Andhra Pradesh is 77.80 per cent, followed by Kerala (76.5 per cent), Punjab (70.8 per cent), Karnataka (67.5 per cent), Jammu and
Kashmir (67 per cent), Uttar Pradesh (65 per cent), Manipur (64.6 per cent), Madhya Pradesh (64 per cent) and Rajasthan (63 per cent).

Meghalaya has the lowest cut-off marks of just 49.40 per cent.

Another notable feature is that the marks secured in 10+2 Board exams will get a weightage of 40 per cent in the new JEE (Mains), which replaced AIEEE this year.

Only the top 1,50,000 rankers in JEE (Main) will be eligible to appear for the JEE (Advanced) for admissions into the Indian Institute of Technology, (IITs), provided they also figure in the top-20 percentile list in their respective state-level 10+2 Board exams.
