32% candidates to give JEE Advanced a miss

HYDERABAD: While many candidates who failed to qualify for the JEE Mains are busy looking for other options, surprisingly, 32% of those short-listed for the final exam have decided to give the test a miss, this year.

According to official data, while 2.4 lakh JEE Main candidates were selected for the JEE Advanced exam, only 1.6 lakh among them have registered for the test, scheduled to be held on May 20. Experts attributed this to more students, particularly those with poor rankings in the Mains, preferring to appear for other tests where they have a better chance of qualifying. This, they added, was advisable for candidates who secured ranks of more than 20,000 in the JEE Main.

”Over the years, a growing number of students have decided to opt out of JEE Advanced. This is because there are only 7,000-odd seats in IITs. Based on their rank in JEE-Main, students can gauge if they stand a chance to get admission into an IIT. If their JEE Main rank is greater than 20,000 it is advisable that they focus their efforts on other entrance exams and JEE Main counselling sessions. This also gives them a greater chance of securing admission in a course of their choice,” said Zishaan Hayath, CEO and co-founder of Toppr.com.

Interestingly, the number of students opting out of the JEE Advanced exam is increasing with every passing year. While 21% of eligible students opted out of the Advanced race in 2016, the number increased by 2% in 2017. In 2018, the number has jumped to 32%.

“One of the reasons why students, especially from tier 2 or tier 3 cities, opt out of JEE Advanced exam is because they are not well equipped — with things such as a laptop or digital mode of learning — to prepare for JEE Advanced examination. Also, their Mains score gives them a rough idea about their potential. If their rank is around 1.25 lakh or above, most of them prefer NIT or state engineering colleges. Many students also sign up for a second attempt because they think they will get abetter college the next year,” Randhir Kumar, CEO, BasicFirst.

JEE-Adv eligible candidates: IIT Bombay zone loses first spot for second year in a row

The office of the organising chairman of Joint Entrance Examination-Advanced (JEE-Adv) 2018, on Saturday, released information on the distribution of candidates eligible for the upcoming exam. The IIT-Bombay zone (which constitutes several states) has lost its top position second year in a row, with IIT-Madras and IIT-Delhi zones taking the first and second positions. 28,813 students from the zone have qualified for the JEE-Adv exam, as compared to 38,321 students from IIT-Madras zone and 31,884 students from IIT-Delhi. The IIT-Madras zone has maintained the first position for the second year in a row.

“These numbers in no way reflect where the candidates come from. A student residing in Guwahati may have registered for JEE-Main from a centre in Rajasthan, and therefore will be considered from that zone,” said a senior official from the office of the organising chairman of JEE-Adv 2018.

“Off late, more and more students are migrating to different parts of the country to find the best possible coaching to crack the code so that they could find a seat in an Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) with courses of their choice,” he added.

HT had previously reported how over 32% students who were eligible for the JEE-Adv exam this year have opted out of the race. Registrations to the JEE-Adv exam ended on Tuesday evening, and while the top 2.31 lakh JEE-Main candidates were eligible for the exam, only 1.64 lakh candidates finished the registration process on Tuesday. Last year, 1.71 lakh of the 2.20 lakh eligible candidates had registered for the JEE-Adv exam.

This year, the exam conducting authority decided to increase the number of eligible JEE-Main candidates for JEE-Adv to 2.24 lakh candidates, from 2.20 lakh candidates in 2017, in order to bring down vacancies in IITs. Of the 10,998 seats in the 23 IITs, the number of vacancies after seven rounds of counselling stood at 121 in 2017, up from 96 in 2016, 50 in 2015, and three in 2014.
