CLASS 12 APPEARANCE 

Candidates can appear for JEE ADVANCED engineering entrance exam if they have appeared for their Class 12 or equivalent exam for the first time in 2019 or 2020.


CLASS 12 PERFORMANCE 

The candidates apply for JEE Advanced examination must satisfy at least one of the following amongst the two criteria for admission to IITs:

  1. Must have secured at least 75% aggregate in Class 12 (or equivalent) Board examination.
  2. Must be within the top 20 percentile of successful candidates in their respective Class 12 (or equivalent) board examination.

Note :

  1. The percentile calculation will be done for the required subjects in a single academic year only. Therefore, candidates appearing for improvement in Board examinations can EITHER appear in one or more subjects and secure 75% aggregate after improvement OR, appear for improvement in ALL subjects to be in the top 20 percentile of the corresponding academic year.
  2. The marks scored in the following five subjects will be considered for calculating the aggregate marks and the cut-off marks for fulfilling the top 20 percentile criterion.
  3. Physics
  4. Chemistry
  5. Mathematics
  6. A language (if the candidate has taken more than one language, then the language with the higher marks will be considered)
  7. Any subject other than the above four (the subject with the highest marks will be considered).
  8. For calculation of the total marks for  five subjects, if the marks awarded in a subject are NOT out of 100, then the marks will be scaled (up or down) to 100 so that the total aggregate is out of 500.
  9. If a Board awards only letter grades without providing an equivalent percentage of marks on the grade sheet, the candidate should obtain a certificate from the Board specifying the equivalent marks and submit it at the time of acceptance of the allocated seat. In case such a certificate is not provided, the decision taken by the Joint Implementation Committee of JEE (Advanced) 2020 will be final.
  10. In case any of the subjects Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Language are not evaluated in the final year (e.g., in a 3-year diploma course), then the marks for the same subject from the previous year/s will be used for calculating the percentage of aggregate marks.
  11. For candidates who appeared in Class 12 (or equivalent) Board examination for the first time in 2019 and reappeared in ALL subjects (for whatsoever reason) in 2020, the best of the two performances will be considered.
  12. If a Board gives aggregate marks considering both Class 11 and Class 12 examinations (in the 10+2 system), then only Class 12 marks will be considered. If a Board gives aggregate marks considering the results of all three years of a 3-year diploma or courses of equivalent duration, then only the marks scored in the final year will be considered. Similarly, for Boards that follow a semester system, the marks scored in the final two semesters will be considered.
  13. If a Board does not give marks scored in individual subjects but gives only the aggregate marks, then the aggregate marks given by the Board will be considered as such.
