Class XII Performance Criterion 2017
Know here everything about class XII performance criterion 2017 of JEE Advanced 2017 regarding boards cut off. This information is useful for students who have appeared for JEE Mains or JEE Advanced this year, or are planning to appear in JEE Main or JEE Advanced next year. The candidates should satisfy at least one of the following two criteria for admission to IITs and ISM:
- Must have secured at least 75% aggregate marks in the Class XII (or equivalent) Board examination. The aggregate marks for SC, ST and PwD candidates should be at least 65%.
- Must be within the category-wise top 20 percentile of successful candidates in their respective Class XII (or equivalent) board examination.
The marks scored in the following five subjects will be considered for calculating the aggregate marks and the cut-off marks for fulfilling the top 20 percentile criterion: (1) Physics, (2) Chemistry, (3) Mathematics, (4) a language (if the candidate has taken more than one language, then the language with the higher marks will be considered), and (5) any subject other than the above four (the subject with the higher marks will be considered).
The percentile calculation will be done for the required subjects in a single academic year only.
For calculation of the total marks for five subjects, if the marks awarded in a subject is NOT out of 100, then the marks will be scaled (up or down) to 100 so that the total aggregate marks is out of 500.
If a 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 acceptance of the allocated seat. In case such a certificate is not provided, the decision taken by the Joint Implementation Committee of JEE (Advanced) 2017 will be final.
In case any of the subjects Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Language are not evaluated in the final year (e.g., in a 3-year diploma course), then the marks for the same subject from the previous year/s will be used for calculating percentage of aggregate marks.
For candidates who appeared in the Class XII (or equivalent) Board examination in 2016 but reappeared in 2017, the best of the two performances will be considered.
If a Board gives aggregate marks considering both Class XI and Class XII examinations (in the 10+2 system), then only Class XII marks will be considered. If a Board gives aggregate marks considering the results of all three years of a 3-year diploma or courses of equivalent duration, then only the marks scored in the final year will be considered. Similarly, for Boards which follow a semester system, the marks scored in the final two semesters will be considered.
If a Board does not give marks scored in individual subjects but gives only the aggregate marks, then the aggregate marks given by the Board will be considered as such.
The criteria, as specified above, is applicable “in toto” to all the candidates including foreign nationals.
Regarding the cut-off marks for the top 20 percentile
The category-wise cut-off marks for the top 20 percentile are calculated based on the marks scored by all the “successful” candidates in their respective boards in the particular year.
The cut-off marks for PwD candidates will be the same as the lowest of the cut-off marks for GEN, OBC-NCL, SC and ST categories.
It is reiterated that top 20 percentile cut-off for the academic year 2017 will be considered for the candidates who pass the Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2017.
Similarly, top 20 percentile cut-off for the academic year 2016 will be considered for the candidates who pass the Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2016.
If a candidate passes Class XII in 2016 but writes one or a few subjects in 2017 for improvement or any other reason, then top 20 percentile cut-off for 2016 will be considered. However, if a candidate writes all the subjects in 2017, the best of the two performances will be considered.
In case a Board does not provide information about the cut-off for the top 20 percentile, the candidate will have to produce a certificate from the respective Board stating that he/she falls within the top 20 percentile of successful candidates. If the candidate fails to do so, then the cut-off marks for the CBSE will be used.
Regarding the aggregate marks of 75% (or 70%)
The marks scored in the 2017 Class XII (or equivalent) Board examination will be considered for candidates who pass the Class XII examination in 2017.
The marks scored by a candidate in the 2016 Class XII (or equivalent) Board examination will be considered for candidates who pass the Class XII examination in 2016.
If a candidate passes Class XII (or equivalent) in 2016, but writes one of the required subjects (mentioned above) in 2017 for improvement or any other reason, then the aggregate percentage will be calculated by considering the maximum marks obtained in the required subjects.
