IITs Decide to Relax The Eligibility Criteria For Students Qualifying JEE Advanced

By: Avantika Bhardwaj on July 19, 2020

JEE Advanced 2020 – The Human Resource Development Minister, Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank' on Friday announced on social media platform ‘Twitter' that the Indian Institutes of Technology have decided to relax the eligibility criteria for admission to the IITs. He declared that besides qualifying JEE Main exam with a valid score, candidates would no longer require the score of at least 75% marks in aggregate in senior secondary school or class 12th. This news has brought relief amongst students who dream to pursue their career from the Indian Institutes of Technology and were not able to score well in 12th class board examinations due to the postponement and later cancelation of exams. JEE Advanced exam is held for admission to the Indian Institutes of Technology and the top 2, 50, 000 rank holder of JEE Main Exam are considered eligible to sit through JEE Advanced exam.

Eligibility criteria for admission to IITs have been relaxed for students qualifying JEE Advanced

Students must understand that they would no longer be required to possess required percentage of marks in class 12th i.e. at least 75% marks in aggregate in class 12th for admission to Indian Institutes of Technology.

More About JEE Advanced

The eligibility criteria for admission to any of the IITs have been clearly defined. Only candidates who have scored at least 75% marks in aggregate in 12th class are considered eligible to sit through the admission procedure of IITs. Candidates who are ranked in the top 20 percentiles in their qualifying examinations are also considered eligible for admission. Nevertheless, the postponement and later cancelation of CBSE Board exams due to the pandemic COVID-19 outbreak has resulted into the relaxation of IITs Eligibility Criteria.

The Joint Admission Board (JAB) has decided to relax the admission criterion of 75% marks in class 12th as students have secured lesser marks due to exam cancelation.

The minister said:

“For admissions to IITs, apart from qualifying the JEE (Advanced), the eligibility was to secure either a minimum score of 75% marks in class XII Board exams or rank among the top 20 percentile in their qualifying examinations. Due to the partial cancellation of class XII exams by several Boards, Joint Admission Board (JAB) has decided to relax the eligibility criterion for JEE (Advanced) 2020 qualified candidates this time.”

“Qualified candidates who have passed class XII examinations will now be eligible for admissions irrespective of marks obtained,” he added.
