Released Cut off marks can’t be treated as indicators for top 20 percentile in JEE 2013.
In 2008, top 1 percentile students in Andhra Pradesh board scored more than 81.2% but in 2010 top 1 percentile student scores more than 95.2% (you can see a big difference in just two years.)
In Bihar board, the cut off percentage for top 1 percentile was 66.7% in 2008 and it was 74% in 2010. In same way cut off varies in other states also every year, so it is not realistic to predict cut off percentage to come under top 20 percentile in coming year.
One more point Mr Chaturvedi added that the human resource development (HRD) ministry has introduced the new IIT eligibility criterion requiring that students secure a spot in top 20 percent of their board with the aim of making them focus on board examinations more than at present. This is likely to make students study harder for board examinations next year, which should significantly push up the cut-off corresponding to the top 20 percent.
As per cut off release released by CoBSE cut off list of percentage for top 20 percentile in different state boards are as below:
|Jammu and Kashmir||67|
|National Open School||60.6|
