Most of the candidates interested in partaking JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) are well aware that the JEE common entrance examination has two distinct parts named as JEE-Main and JEE-Advanced. JEE-Main Exam is taken by IITs and IIITs (Indian Institutes of Information Technology) for the admission of the candidates in NITs (National Institutes of Technology, IIITs (Indian Institutes of Information Technology), CFTIs (Central Funded Technical Institute), and IIEST Shibpur.
The board decides a minimum qualifying mark each year to select the candidates for the further admission process. These minimum qualifying marks are termed as cut off marks decided by boards for giving admission to the candidates in various engineering degree courses and engineering programs at Central Institutes, NITs and other engineering colleges in various states of India.
There are various factors to decide the cut offs marks for every year. It is mainly decided depending on the total number of candidates appeared to exams and number of seats available for the admission. Sometimes, difficulty level of the exam is also taken under consideration for deciding cut off marks for candidates’ admission into different engineering and technology programs. Getting less than cut-offs mean- the candidates won’t be eligible to appear for the IIT-Advanced. To be more precise, a candidate, who can qualify the IIT-Main, becomes eligible for partaking in JEE-Advanced. JEE Main 2014 cut off mark is the minimum or the lowest score needed to be eligible for appearing in JEE Advanced 2014 exam.
Given blow are Cut offs of 2014 JEE Main for Appearing JEE Advanced
|Category||% Reservation||Total Seats||Cut-off Marks||% of Total|
|Other Backward Class (OBC - NCL)||27.0||40500||74||20.55|
|Scheduled Caste (SC)||15.0||22500||53||14.72|
|Scheduled Tribe (ST)||7.5||11250||47||13.05|
On July 7, 2014, a separate list of JEE (Main) was published by the concerned authority for the admission of the students in B.E., B.Tech, B.Arch and B.Planning courses. The list was prepared depending on the score in JEE (Main) and marks scored by the candidates in Class XII or its equivalent exams. According to the JEE (Main) Information Bulletin 60% and 40% weightage were given on those two exams.
From the above table, candidates can at least guess his or her position. He can understand beforehand what is going to happen with him or her. It is assumed that the trend of 2014 would remain same for 2015 JEE Main.
I hope cut off analysis of 2014 JEE will help the students to be prepared better for this exam. They would be capable of qualifying both main and advance exams.
