The minimum marks required to qualify varies for different categories of candidates. If candidates find any error in the JEE Advanced Result, they can report it to the concerned authority. The authorities will allot a certain time period for reporting corrections in the results.
If more than one candidate gets the same score, the tie-breaking policy is applied to determine the rank of the candidates. The candidates who score the highest marks in Mathematics get the top rank. If the tie still persists, then the candidates with higher marks in Physics get the higher rank. If the tie still doesn’t break, the candidates are given a higher rank based on the date of birth. Finally, if the tie remains, the candidates are ranked evenly.
JEE Advanced Marks Vs Rank
Candidates can check their ranks corresponding to their marks after the results are announced. By referring to the previous years’ JEE Advanced Marks Vs Rank,candidates can get an insight into the possible rank they might be allotted for the marks obtained by them. The candidates are ranked based on the aggregate score, a combination of their marks in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. Candidates scoring the highest marks are given the first rank followed by candidates who score the second-highest marks.
To be eligible for admission in IITs, candidates must score above the cut-off marks. The cut-off score is set based on the difficulty level of the examination, previous years cutoff trends, the total number of applicants in total, the number of seats available in the colleges, and the performance of the candidates in that particular year.
