IITs unveil the procedure to select 150,000 candidates for JEE Advanced


The JEE Advanced is a secondary and final stage of the selection process for the prestigious IITs from academic year 2013-2014.

Candidates qualified in JEE Main will be eligible to appear for JEE Advanced with certain rules. Rule 1 is that only 150,000 or slightly more number of candidates will be made eligible to appear for JEE Advanced.

Procedure to select 150,000 candidates for JEE Advanced (as mentioned on http://jee.iitd.ac.in/)

  • 50.5% of the 1,50,000 (75,750 candidates) will be taken from the top rankers of the Common Merit List (CML) of JEE (Main). 27% (40,500), 15% (22,500) and 7.5% (11,250) candidates will be taken from the top rankers of the category rank lists of OBC-NCL, SC and ST, respectively. The candidates figuring in the category rank lists will be those who do not figure in the 75,750 candidates chosen from the CML.
  • 3% of the candidates selected within each category will be those belonging to PwD (Persons with Disability) sub-category, who figure in the respective rank lists of JEE (Main).
  • Only the candidate‚Äôs aggregate marks in JEE (Main) will be considered and no tie-break mechanism will be implemented at this stage. This will make the list of candidates eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced)-2013 slightly more than 1,50,000 due to bunching of candidates with the same aggregate marks at the bottom of each category.
