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.

JEE Main cut-off slides to a low

chart.jpg

New Delhi: The cut-off score used for this year’s Joint Entrance Examination Main to determine general category candidates’ eligibility for the JEE Advanced is the lowest ever and caps a four-year downward trend.

Professors at the Indian Institutes of Technology, which admit students on the basis of their JEE Advanced scores, suggested two possible reasons. One, an increase in available IIT seats; two, top students’ growing preference for non-engineering courses such as medicine. All those who scored more than 74 in the JEE main, out of the total marks of 360, will be allowed to take the JEE Advanced this year.

When the JEE Main and the JEE Advanced were started in 2013, the cut-off used was 113. This rose to 115 the following year but has been falling every year since then. (See chart)

M.K. Panigrahi, IIT Kharagpur teacher and former JEE Advanced chairperson, said that in 2013, the IITs wanted the 1.5 lakh best JEE Main candidates to take the JEE Advanced. This year, they want 2.2 lakh to do so.

Victorious moment for all 12 students who secured their positions in the Top 200 of JEE (Main) 2018. Heartiest congratulations to all of them

JEE-Main-2018-AIR-Top-200

This is because the institutes have increased their seats from about 9,500 in 2013 to almost 12,000 now.

“To accommodate more candidates, you have to lower the cut-off,” Panigrahi said. “It does not mean the students have become more complacent (and are faring worse in the exams).”

Also, the number of students taking the JEE Main has been declining since 2014, when 13 lakh had taken the test. This year, the number was 11 lakh.

“Demand for the engineering courses is falling. Large numbers of seats remain vacant in the engineering colleges,” Rajeev Kumar, former IIT Kharagpur professor who now teaches computer science at JNU, said.

“This suggests that the top students are taking an interest in other disciplines as well.”

The number of candidates taking the National Eligibility and Entrance Test, which determines admission to undergraduate medical and dental courses, has grown from 8 lakh in 2016 to 13 lakh this year.

The top score in the JEE Main, however, has remained more or less the same over the years, Panigrahi said. Bhogi Suraj Krishna from Andhra Pradesh topped this year with 350.JEE Advanced scores determine admission to the IITs as well as some other institutions such as the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, and the Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research.

Many centrally funded engineering colleges, such as the National Institutes of Technology, as well as some state government and private engineering colleges admit students on the basis of their JEE Main scores.
