JEE Advanced Rank Lists

As per the JEE Advanced cut off system, Section 21 of Information Brochure states that 10% of marks are required in all the three subjects individually, along with 35% of the total marks for a position in Common Rank List. The OBC-NCL students require 9% of marks for each subject, and overall 31.5%; while, the rest categories require 5% and 17.5% respectively. Though, this is the scheme of distribution of marks, the regular procedure of deciding the cut-offs are done on the basis of the performance of the students in the respective year, and the reduction in the cut-offs for the subjects is usually done to about 50-60% of what they are designated as, with the cut-offs in Mathematics coming down to single digits every other year. Moreover, the aggregate is usually reduced to 25-30% to accommodate for the complexity and the difficulty level of the question paper. In no case, the cut-offs are increased. This ensures a balance for the students at all levels and helps the system in creating an optimised state for the rank lists.

Common rank list (CRL)10.035.0

Rank List Minimum % in each subject Minimum % of aggreagate
OBC-NCL rank list 9.0 31.5
SC rank list 5.0 17.5
ST rank list 5.0 17.5
Common-PwD rank list (CRL-PwD) 5.0 17.5
OBC-NCL-PwD rank list 5.0 17.5
SC-PwD rank list 5.0 17.5
ST-PwD rank list 5.0 17.5
Preparatory course rank list 2.5 8.75

In case of ties, the student with higher marks in Mathematics is awarded a higher rank. In case of a further tie, Physics is taken into consideration. If in the final case, both the marks in Mathematics and Physics are equal, both students are awarded the same rank.
