    a. Physics
    b. Chemistry

    d. A language (if the candidate has taken more than one language, then the language in which the candidate has scored the higher marks will be considered)
    e. The subject in which the candidate has received the highest marks, other than the above four subjects mentioned, will be considered the fifth subject for calculating marks.
  • If the marks awarded in any of these five subjects are not 100, then, to meet the JEE Advanced eligibility criteria, the marks will be scaled to 100 to ensure that the aggregate marks obtained is out of 500.
  • If a Board has not awarded marks or percentages to candidates in the grade sheet but has graded them in terms of letters, the candidates should obtain a certificate from the Board that specifies the marks equivalent to the letters graded.

If the candidate cannot produce such a certificate, the final decision will be at the discretion of the Joint Implementation Committee of JEE Advanced 2023.
  • Suppose any of the subjects of Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Language are not evaluated in the final year (e.g., in a 3-year diploma course). In such a case, the marks from the previous year/s will be considered for the subject in concern of calculating the aggregate marks percentage.
  • If a Board awards aggregate marks for 2 years (say, Class 11 and 12) or a 3-year Diploma course (or an equivalent course) altogether instead of awarding marks for each year individually, only the marks granted for the final year will be considered. A similar process will be followed for Boards that follow the semester system.
