Candidates who qualify the JEE Mains and make to the Common Merit List register themselves for the next crucial exam of an engineering aspirant’s life: JEE Advanced. This year approximately 12 lakh candidates from over 350 centers across India appeared for Papers 1 and 2 of the JEE Advanced exam.
The IITs give their specific qualifying marks in JEE Advanced to get admission in their undergraduate engineering programs. This qualifying scheme is called MQMR or Minimum Qualifying Marks for Ranking. Candidates who score more than these minimum marks are eligible for the Common Merit List of JEE Advanced.
The specified cut off for JEE Advanced is calculated by JEE authorities on a basis of number of factors, such as:
- Previous Year’s cutoff,
- Number of applicants for the exam,
- Number of available seats in IITs and their annual intake, and
- Difficulty level of the exam.
The Qualifying Marks for JEE Advanced in the past few years are stated below:
