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 Main results 2018: Cut-offs for JEE Advanced lowered as scores dip

The overall cut-off for students who will become eligible for JEE-Advanced has gone down this year as well. As per Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), which announced the for JEE-Main on Monday, the cut-off in common rank is 74 as compared to 81 in 2017 and 100 in 2016.

Tathaghat Verma,17, has emerged as the probable Mumbai topper with an All India Rank (AIR) of 34. Nanded resident Parth Lathuria bagged AIR 3. The results were announced on Monday evening.

While the scores have invited mixed reactions from students and experts, most top scorers seemed happy with their marks. Verma, a resident of Powai, was happy to score as per expectations. “What I did not expect was to be amongst the top scorers, so that’s a pleasant surprise,” said Verma, who scored 331 out of 360. Like many other top scorers, Verma also hopes to clear JEE-Advanced and secure a seat in computer science faculty at Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT-B).

Pune’s Sharat Bhat, 17, scored an AIR 31 spot with his 333/360 in JEE-Main. “Though some of my friends are not very pleased with their scores, I got what I expected . I’m very happy that I managed to keep my rank in double digits. My focus is now to crack the JEE-Advanced paper,” said Bhat, who also wants to secure a seat in computer science at IIT-B.

All categories —SC, ST, PwD and others — have witnessed a drop in cut-offs when compared to the last few years. “This was expected because all students complained about the level of difficulty and the length of the paper. Many students could not complete the full exam. Scores were bound to be low,” said Vinay Kumar from a city-based coaching institute.

A few believe the overall performance of students from Mumbai is better than the previous year, with higher top scores. “The overall performance of Mumbai is better this year. For most students, this is just a qualifying exam and their real test will be JEE-Advanced, for which I believe students will be better prepared,” said Pravin Tyagi, from another coaching institute.
