Aspirant need to be prepared to face this two tier examination with the help of IIT classes online or offline.
- The eligibility criterion was changed from 60% in the board exams to being in the top 20 percentile of the respective board.
- The gateway for the selection of IITs is decided as only the top 1.5 lakh students of JEE (main) were allowed to appear for JEE (advanced) exam.
- The government could consider relaxing the eligibility criteria norm but any relaxation can occur only after getting the approval by the Joint Admission Board (JAB), a body for deciding admission to IITs.
The top 20 percentile cut offs has varied largely across different boards like Andhra board and Tamil Nadu boards having high cutoffs of 91.85% and 90.9%, respectively.
