JEE Advanced 2014

Summary of JEE Advanced 2013

In the 45th meeting of the Council of IITs, held on 27th June, 2012, new format for IITs admission was adopted, as per this new format – “Admission to IITs will be based only on category wise All India Rank (AIR) in JEE (Advanced)
subject to condition that such candidates are in the top 20 percentile of successful candidates of their Boards in applicable categories”.

Accordingly, admissions to the undergraduate programmes at IITs and ISM, Dhanbad, for the academic session starting in July,2013, were done based on the rank of a candidate in the JEE(Advanced)-2013.

The candidates were to take the Paper 1 of JEE(Main), conducted by
the CBSE, on 7th April, 2013 (offline) and 9th, 22nd, 23rd and 25th April (online).

The top 1,50,000 candidates, from all categories, based on their JEE(Main) scores, were to be eligible for appearing in JEE(Advanced) – 2013.

Procedure used to select top 1, 50, 000 students

The following procedure was used for selecting the 1,50,000 candidates who were eligible to appear for JEE (Advanced)- 2013 based on their performance in JEE (Main) -2013.

  1. 50.5% of the 1,50,000 (75,750 candidates) were 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 were 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 were those who did not figure in the 75,750 candidates chosen from the CML.
  2. 3% of the candidates selected within each category were those belonging to PwD (Persons with Disability) sub-category, who figure in the respective rank lists of JEE (Main).

Only the candidate’s aggregate marks in JEE (Main) was considered and no tie-break mechanism was implemented at this stage. This made 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.

A total of 1,52,351 candidates were eligible to apply for JEE(Advanced). Of these, 1,26,749 candidates registered for the JEE (Advanced) – 2013.

JEE Advanced 2014 Eligibility

Age Limit

Candidates  of  GE  and  OBC  categories  must  have  been  born  on  or  after  October  01, 1989  and  those  of  SC,  ST  and  PwD  categories  must  have  been  born  on  or  after October 01, 1984.

Number of Attempts in JEE (Advanced)

A  candidate  can  attempt  JEE  (Advanced)  a  maximum  of  two  times  and  that  too,  in consecutive years. However, being in the top 1, 50,000 in JEE (Main)-2014 is the prime
eligibility  criterion  applicable  to  all  irrespective  of  the  attempt  number.  Those  who appeared  in  their  Qualifying  Examination  (QE)  in  2012  or  earlier  (irrespective  of whether they passed or failed) are NOT ELIGIBLE. Candidates who attempted IIT-JEE in 2012 or earlier, are also NOT ELIGIBLE to appear in JEE (Advanced)-2014.

Earlier Admission Taken Through JEE (Advanced)-2013

Candidates  who  had  earlier  taken  admission  (irrespective  of  whether  or  not  they continued  in  any  of  the  programmes)  or  accepted  admission by  paying  the  admission fee  at  any  of  the  IITs  or  ISM  Dhanbad,  are  NOT  ELIGIBLE  to  appear  in  JEE (Advanced)-2014.

Performance Criteria in Qualifying Examination (QE)

Admission to IITs and ISM Dhanbad will be based only on category wise All India Rank (AIR) in JEE (Advanced)-2014 subject to the condition that such candidates are among the top 20 percentile of successful candidates of their Boards in respective categories. PwD  candidates  will be given  relaxation  in  the eligibility  criteria  as  per  the  decision  of the Joint  Admission  Board  of JEE (Advanced)-2014 in consonance with  the  directives of the Government of India.   In  case  a  Board  does  not  provide  the  information  regarding  the  cut-off  for  top  20 percentile  of  successful  candidates  in  respective  category,  the  candidate  will  have  to produce  a  certificate  from  the  concerned  Board  stating  that he/she  falls  within  the  top 20  percentile  of  successful  candidates.  If  the  candidate  fails  to  do  so,  then  the CBSE percentile will be used as the criteria for deciding minimum cut off marks in qualifying examination.

Candidates  who  passed  their  QE  in  2013 will  be  considered  on  the  basis  of  the top 20 percentile cut off marks of their boards in 2013. Candidates, who passed in  2013  and  would  improve  their  performance  of  QE  in  2014,  will  be  considered on the basis of 2014 cut off marks of their respective Boards in their respective category.

If  any  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 online acceptance of seat. In case such a certificate is not provided the decision taken by the Joint Implementation Committee (JIC) of JEE (Advanced)-2014 will be final.  Foreign nationals from foreign boards with valid AIR should have minimum 60% marks in aggregate or 6.5 GPA (on 10 point scale) to be eligible for admission.

Candidates who will take JEE Advanced examination from Dubai will have to pay US$220. The earlier fee for taking the test was US$200.

JEE Main in February will be more difficult for state board and ISCE students

As per the new proposal made by CBSE for JEE Main examination this year CBSE will conduct JEE Main examination two times in a year and will consider best of two scores as final JEE Main score. CBSE will conduct first JEE Main in February and second in April. The final decision on this proposal will be taken by JEE Apex body on Sep 17.

It looks beneficial for students as they will get one more chance to improve their JEE Main score, but in month of February JEE Main exam will clash with the XII board exams. This task will be more difficult for state board and ISCE students as they will have to study CBSE portion separately for JEE Main along with their board materials.

The CBSE official assured that they would schedule the JEE-Main exam in February without letting it clash with the February board exams. But the pressure of the extra exam would always

IITs are not in mood to implement any change in JEE Advanced 2014

IITs are looking for some major changes in current JEE Advanced pattern, but these changes will come after JEE Advanced 2014 only. JEE Advanced 2014 will be similar to JEE Advanced 2013, it will be pencil paper based test. Joint admission board (JAB) held meeting yesterday to discuss Pros and Cons of an online test. JAB formed a special committee that will consist of academicians from various areas, including representatives from different IITs, is likely to be formed this year. IIT Bombay will take a lead in forming the committee.
“The committee will take a look into all parameters for having an online exam. But if the change takes place, the students will be notified almost a year in advance,” official sources said adding, “If approved it could be enforced from 2015 or 2016.”
On Sunday meeting JAB decided not to change top 20 percentile eligibility criteria. The same has to be, however, ratified by the IIT council which meets on Monday.

CBSE will give one more chance to improve JEE Main score

Reportedly from academic year 2014CBSE is proposing to conduct JEE Main two times, one in Feb and other in month of April, and finally CBSE will consider best score of these two exams for Final JEE Main rank and JEE Advanced eligibility.

CBSE is proposing this to reduce stress of students, but students don’t seem happy with this proposal. Students feel that if JEE Main examination is in February, it will directly distract them from boards preparation. From 2013 boards marks are also playing an important role for engineering entrance. CBSE gives 40% weightage to XII board marks before calculation of final JEE Main ranks.

“Board exam marks assumed utmost significance with 40 per cent weightage being given while deciding JEE (Main) ranks. Besides, students also need to figure in the top-20 percentile of respective Board exams to be eligible for admission in IITs even after clearing JEE (Advanced). In such conditions, we need to focus more on Board exams and holding JEE (Main) in February will adversely affect our preparation,” said P. Bharghavi, an Inter student.

JAB might announce final JEE Advanced 2014 pattern tomorrow

Meeting of IIT’s governing body ‘Joint Admission Board’ is schedule for tomorrow at IIT Kharagpur. This year IIT Kharagpur will conduct JEE Advanced. Most probably in this meeting JAB will take a final call on JEE Advanced 2014 examination pattern and IIT eligibility issue. When last JAB meeting was held JAB was satisfied with top 20 percentile eligibility criteria but final announcement is still pending.

Also one more point on which JAB will discuss in meeting is number of candidates eligible for JEE Advanced 2014. Few members have proposed to increase this number upto 2 lakhs. In 2013 top 1.5 lakhs students on the basis of JEE Main 2013 score were eligible to sit for JEE Advanced examination.

JEE Main pattern 2014, final decision expected on Sep 15

The governing body of all IITs, Joint admission board JAB has not announced its final decision for JEE Pattern 2014 yet, next JAB meeting is expected to be held on Sep 15 at IIT Kharagpur.
In last meeting, that was held on August 25, JAB discussed about top 20 percentile issue in detail but didn’t make any final official announcement regarding the same. As per the last meeting of JAB there is a possibility that top 20 percentile rule might remain as it is for JEE 2014 also. Last year 79 IIT aspirants lost their seat due to top 20 percentile eligibility rule.
The second issue that came from the JEE Main 2013 results was due to nomalisation of XII marks to give 40% weightage to board marks. Several cases were filed in High Courts of various states against these norms.
On next meeting JAB is expected to discuss all these issue in detail.

JEE Advanced 2014 might be Online

From 2014 IIT entrance examination JEE Advanced might be change to computer based test. JAB will take a final decision on this issue in first week of September. The highest body, allowed to finalise any decision for admission to IITs, Joint Admission Board has accepted this proposal but final announcement is pending.

“We discussed a proposal to offer the test on computer or, at least, to keep it as an option in the first year,” said IIT-Bombay director Devang Khakhar.

Last year approximately 14 lakh students appeared for JEE Main examination, out of them only 1.74 lakh students opted for online mode of JEE Main examination.

Before final announcement IIT Khargpur will analyse JEE 2013 results. “As a starting point, we’ll see how many of the students who qualified for the IIT (Advanced) took the main test on computer,” said an IIT official.

Some logistical deviations will have to be considered. “We’ll have to run the computer-based tests and the paper-pen tests at the same time at all the centres across India,” he said. “We’ll have to be extremely cautious.”
