Different Board Cut-Off for IIT JEE Advance

The new common entrance test planned to replace various entrance exams conducted for engineering admission will have 2 parts – mains and advance. The JEE advance will be for admission in prestigious IITs all over the India.

Only students in the top 20 percentile in their respective boards will be allowed to sit for JEE Advanced exams – the final step to IITs. Preliminary data of seven boards across India shows that the Class XII scores to get into the top 20 percentile vary widely from board to board.

It has been found that the cut-offs for Top 20 percentile in different boards (for general category students) this year is as follows:

West Bengal 58%
CBSE 77.8%
Tamil Nadu 78.1%
Karnataka 67.5%
Uttar Pradesh 65%
Madhya Pradesh 64%

The scores are expected to be less for other categories, for which data will be compiled soon. Also, percentage figures for all education boards will soon be released in the public domain. Read more

The fairness of including only the top 20 percentile rankers in the JEE Advanced exam is being questioned. Two separate studies show that the students from Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) perform better than students of several other boards in national level exams, raising the level of competition for students from these boards.

It is likely that ICSE, CBSE, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu boards will be in the highest percentage bracket. Whereas boards such as those of West Bengal, Jharkhand and Bihar will be at the lower end.

It has been alleged that the government ignored the recommendations of Indian Statistical Institute (ISI) Calcutta to analyse the score pattern across all the 29 education boards in India for a longer period of time to come up with a fair normalization formula. Know more
