JEE Advanced 2016 Website Launched. Guwahati will be the responsible IIT.

Website for JEE Advanced 2016 has been launched on Thursday, 22nd October. This year, IIT Guwahati has been given the responsibility to conduct this prestigious engineering entrance exam. The date of the exam has not been declared yet but it is announced that this year too, the exam will be having 2 papers of 3 hours each. The timing of these papers will be 9 AM to 12 PM and then 2 PM to 5 PM. Earlier, there were proposals for single exam and single rank for admission in IIT’s and NIT’s but it is mostly unlikely to happen in this session. Still the final decision is yet to be taken by the committee.

Certain eligibility criteria announced on JEE Advanced 2016 website are as follows:

Criterion 1 – Age limit.

The candidate should have been born on or after October 1, 1991 if belonging to the GEN or OBC-NCL category and on or after October 1, 1986 if belonging to the SC, ST or PwD category.

Criterion 2 – Number of attempts.

A candidate can attempt JEE (Advanced) a maximum of two times and that too in consecutive years. Therefore, JEE (Advanced) 2016 should be either the candidate’s FIRST attempt OR the SECOND consecutive attempt.

Criterion 3 – Appearance in Class XII (or equivalent) examination.

The candidate should have appeared for the Class XII (or equivalent) examination for the first time in all the subjects in either 2015 or 2016.
Candidates who appeared for the Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2015 and wish to re-appear in the same in 2016 (either for improvement or because they failed in one or more subjects), will have to re-appear in all the subjects in 2016.
Those who appeared for the first time in their Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2014 or earlier are NOT eligible. However, candidates whose Class XII (or equivalent) examination Board results for the academic year 2013-14 were declared after June 2014 are eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2016.

Criterion 4 – Earlier admission at IITs/ISM.

The candidate should NOT have been admitted (irrespective of whether or not he/she continued in the program) OR even accepted the seat by paying seat acceptance fee at any of the IITs or ISM in the past. The candidates whose admission at IITs or ISM was cancelled are also NOT eligible. However, candidates who have been admitted to a preparatory course in any of the IITs in 2015 can appear in JEE (Advanced) 2016.

Criterion 5 – Performance in Class XII.

One of the criteria for admission to IITs and ISM is that the candidate should satisfy at least one of these two criteria :

  • He/she is within the category-wise top 20 percentile of successful candidates in his/her respective Class XII (or equivalent) board examination.
  • He/she has secured 75% (for GEN or OBC-NCL) or 70% (SC, ST or PwD) of aggregate marks in the Class XII (or equivalent) Board examination.

The marks scored in the following five subjects will be considered for calculating the aggregate marks and the cut-off marks for fulfilling the top 20 percentile criterion:

Five Subjects:

1. Physics
2. Chemistry
3. Mathematics
4. A language (if the candidate has taken more than one language, then the language with the higher marks will be considered), and
5. Any subject other than the above four (the subject with the higher marks will be considered).

For calculation of the total marks for five subjects, if the marks awarded in a subject is NOT out of 100, then the marks will be scaled (up or down) to 100 so that the total aggregate marks is out of 500.

If a Board awards only letter grades without providing an equivalent percentage of marks on the grade sheet, the candidate should obtain a certificate from the Board specifying the equivalent marks and submit it at the time of acceptance of the allocated seat. In case such a certificate is not provided, the decision taken by the Joint Implementation Committee of JEE (Advanced) 2016 will be final.

In case any of the subjects Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Language are not evaluated in the final year (e.g., in a 3-year diploma course), then the marks for the same subject from the previous year will be used for calculating the top 20 percentile cut-off and percentage of aggregate marks.

Candidates who appeared in the Class XII (or equivalent) examination for the first time in 2015 and wish to (or has to) reappear in 2016, should reappear in all the subjects.

For candidates who appeared in the Class XII (or equivalent) Board examination in 2015 but reappeared in all subjects in 2016, the best of the two performances will be considered.

If a Board gives aggregate marks considering both Class XI and Class XII examinations (in the 10+2 system), then only the Class XII marks will be considered. If a Board gives aggregate marks considering the results of all three years of a 3-year diploma or courses of equivalent duration, then only the marks scored in the final year will be considered. Similarly, for Boards which follow a semester system, the marks scored in the final two semesters will be considered.

If a Board does not give marks scored in individual subjects but gives only the aggregate marks, then the aggregate marks given by the Board will be considered as such.
