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.
 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 OBCNCL, 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.
 3% of the candidates selected within each category were those belonging to PwD (Persons with Disability) subcategory, who figure in the respective rank lists of JEE (Main).
Only the candidate’s aggregate marks in JEE (Main) was considered and no tiebreak 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.

Number of Attempts in JEE (Advanced)
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 cutoff 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.
