The Human Resource Development Ministry and the IIT council decided to introduce a change in the eligibility criteria for JEE (Advanced) last week. Below are the new IIT Admission Rules :

2) To get admission to the IITs , the General Category candidate must score 35 percent or more marks in IIT JEE Advanced Examination. IIT Bombay is conducting IIT JEE Advanced examination this year. If a General category student fails of score 35 percent or more then he/she will not get into common merit list, even if the seat remains vacant. Up Till now, only those who are in the top 20 percentile are eligible for admission, once they clear the JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced).
Up till now there was no such 35 percent criteria for Common merit list. That’s why even applicants with less than 30 percent aggregate used to make place in the CML.

General Category : 35 Percent
