JEE Main 2023: 75% criterion for admission
JEE Main 2023: The National Testing Agency (NTA) has restored the 75% eligibility criterion for Engineering admission after qualifying in the JEE Mains entrance test – a practice which was followed in pre-COVID times.
While the eligibility criteria for appearing in the entrance test remains the same as last time, the condition for taking admission at IIITs, NITs, and GFTIs has changed.
Campaigners must secure 75% marks (65% for SC, ST) in their Class 12 final examination, in addition to qualifying in JEE Main for admission to National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs), and other Centrally Funded Technological Institutions (CFTIs). Admission to these institutes is given through JoSAA and CSAB counseling.
Admission to B.E./B.Tech/B.Arch/B.Planning. Courses in NITs, IIITs, and CFTIs sharing through Central Seat Allocation Board will be grounded on All India Rank subject to the condition that the candidate should have secured at least 75% marks in the Class 12 examination conducted by the respective Boards. For SC/ST campaigners the qualifying mark would be 65% in the Class 12/qualifying examination. The candidate is also needed to pass in each of the subjects of the Class 12/qualifying examination.
In 2022, admission to these institutes was given on the base of all India rank in JEE Main.
The 75% criterion doesn’t necessarily apply to states or private institutions using JEE Main scores as they’re free to set their own conditions for admitting students.
JEE Main in 2020: The 75% criteria was removed
In 2020, also Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘ Nishank ’ relaxed morals for admission at centrally-funded institutions amid the ongoing COVID- 19 pandemic which resulted in the closure of schools, and colleges and disrupted almost all education-related conditioning across the country. Only passing marks in Class 12 was needed for all these activities.
Due to prevailing circumstances, Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB) has decided to relax the eligibility criterion for admissions to NITs and other CFTIs. JEE Main 2020 qualified campaigners will now only need to obtain a passing certificate in the class XII examination irrespective of the marks obtained. This continued in JEE Main 2021 and 2022 as well.
