I am going to explain complete JEE advanced 2014 eligibility criteria. There was so much buzz about the eligibility criteria of JEE advanced 2014 exam and basic reason was that, this is a new approach and people were searching for all possible information they could. But as the team of the JEEMains read the whole prospectus carefully and also conducted a research through the various coaching institutes, we came across this information. So let’s read about eligibility criteria for the JEE advanced 2014 exam.
1. First of all only 150000 students will be able to give the JEE advanced exam and these 150000 students will be those who have cleared the JEE mains exam. And these numbers represents all students from all categories like General, OBC etc.
Minimum Marks in Qualifying Examination: First of All India ranking in the JEE advanced exam will be the main thing that will decide admission into the various IIT, but the candidate should fall under the categories of 20 percentile slot in their boards.
60 % in PCM for General and 55% in PCM for SC/ST is the basic criteria for applying for this examination. If any board does not give marks and only gives the grade, then the candidate should submit marks equivalent to those grades from the concerned authority.
It is clearly written in the JEE prospectus that ‘In case a Board does not provide the information regarding the cut-off for top 20 percentile of successful candidates, the candidate will have to produce a certificate from the concerned Board stating that he/she falls within the top 20 percentile. In case the percentile score is not available from any testing agency, the CBSE cut-off score for top 20 percentile for the student’s category will be used. If the candidate fails to do so, then the CBSE percentile will be used as the criteria for deciding minimum percentage of marks in the qualifying examination’.
In case any students fails to submit its percentile, then the percentile given by the CBSE will be the one that will be used and accepted for admission.
Number of attempts: A candidate has only two chances for appearing for this examination. One is when he or she is studying in the 12th and other one is when he or she is dropout for the preparation. So, for a student there are only two chances to give this examination.
2. Candidate who is admitted through the IIT JEE is not eligible for this exam or admission whatsoever condition they have. So only those who are preparing fresh for the JEE mains and advanced are eligible for this exam and those who have given the examination early year, are not eligible.
3. For the students who are wishing to take admission in to the B.Arch programs at JEE needs to give one extra exam called as the Aptitude exam. So apart from the Physics, chemistry and Math, candidates need to give an aptitude exam too, if they are seeking admission in to the B.Arch programs.
I hope that JEE advanced 2014 eligibility criteria is clear to you all.
