JEE Main 2016 cut offs

The JEE Main 2016 paper was easier than in 2015, which should increase the cut offs. However, since more students are going to be shortlisted (2 lac instead of 1.5 lac), the net cut offs will be lower than that of the previous year.

Here are our predicted cut offs –

Let’s look deeper into accuracy, careless mistakes and time management. We had over 2000 questions on embibe extremely similar to the questions asked in the JEE Main 2016. The attempts by students on those questions alone were over 5 lac. We compiled the data of these 5 lac+ attempts.
