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)-2015 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)-2015 in consonance with the directives of the Government of India.

In case a Board does not provide the information regarding the cut-off 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 2014 will be considered on the basis of the top 20 percentile cut off marks of their boards in 2014. Candidates, who passed in 2014 and would improve their performance of QE in 2015, will be considered on the basis of 2015 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)-2015 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.
