  1. Is there any chance cut off for obc fall to about 117. Because question was difficult and negative marking was high. 62% ques are negative marks category with -2 marks compared to 50% in 2014 with -1 negative mark. Can 31.5% rule can be removed out due to lesser no eligible candidate ??

  2. As per 2014 CML, a score of 193 out of 360 in that year would have placed the candidate in Rank 3000. What do you think will be the corresponding score (out of maximum 504 this year) for a Rank of 3000 in this year’s JEE Advanced?

  3. my marks in jee advanced-2015 are between 170-180.Can I be able to get a seat in IITs. Since the difficulty level of the paper is raised to an high extent and there negative marking also. should not the cut off be down this year around 140-150.

    • No, the predicted rank is still the same. Since last year cutoff was 176, 19000+ students were declared qualified, this year we predicted 12000+ students will be declared qualified if the cutoff remains 176. But as now the cut off is decreased, the number of students qualified will be more than 12000.
