Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has allowed as many as 2,21,427 top rankers of JEE Main 2017 to appear in JEE Advanced 2017 for IIT admissions whereas the actual capping for appearing in JEE Advanced 2017 was 2,20,000. This means that the exam conducting authority has declared 1,427 more candidates eligible for appearing in JEE Advanced 2017. This must be noted that it’s CBSE only which had earlier declared that for admission year 2017-18, only 2,20,000 top rank holders would be considered eligible for appearing in JEE Advanced.

Latest: JEE Advanced 2017 Result declared on June 11.

 

A report released by CBSE reflects that 1,75,267 male candidates have qualified for JEE Advanced 2017, while the total number of female candidates qualified for the entrance test for IIT admissions is 46,160. Thus, the total number of candidates who have been considered eligible for taking JEE Advanced 2017 comes to 2,21,427.

 

In 2016, as many as 2,00,000 candidates had qualified to take JEE Advanced. IIT Guwahati had raised the number of eligible candidates (who would sit for JEE Advanced) to 2 lakh in 2016 from the earlier 1,50,000. Till 2015, 1,50,000 top candidates from JEE Main were allowed to take JEE Advanced.

 

Now, as CBSE has made these 1,427 candidates eligible for JEE Advanced 2017, there is no clarity if these candidates had actually taken the test. Careers360 has also filed a request to IIT Madras, the exam conducting authority for the actual number of candidates registered for JEE Advanced 2017 and the total number of candidates who have actually appeared in the test. Meanwhile, there are a few possibilities as per the declaration of CBSE for 2,21,427 candidates who were allowed for appearing in JEE Advanced 2017.

 

Case 1: If these 1,427 candidates had taken the test!

 

As per CBSE, these 1,427 candidates were eligible to take JEE Advanced 2017, however, whether these candidates had taken the test or not is not known yet. We will update the status of these students as soon as IIT Madras shares the information.

 

Case 2: Will IIT Madras accommodate these 1,427 candidates?

 

For instance, if these 1,427 candidates (who fall outside the ambit of 2 lakh capping for JEE Advanced 2017) have appeared in JEE Advanced 2017, then the question is whether IIT Madras will increase the seats at the IITs to accommodate all these candidates for B.tech admissions.

 

Case 3: These 1,427 candidates may be accommodated

 

As per some reports, against the 2,20,00 candidates eligible for appearing in JEE Advanced, only over 1.70 lakh have taken the test. This means that aroud 50,000 candidates had given a miss to JEE Advanced this year. In this scenario, there may be chances of these 1,427 candidates to appear in JoSAA 2017 counselling for IIT admissions based on their ranks and the cutoff. However, there is no such official release on the exact number of test takers in JEE Advanced yet. We need to wait till the time IIT Madras decides something in this regard.

lowering of vapour pressure of equimolar solution of glucose,sodium chloride and barium nitrate are in the order

prem meghani 7th Dec, 2019
Dear Aspirant,

Vant Hoff factor =i
For Barium nitrate,i=3,
2Ba+ No3-

For Nacl,i=2Na+ Cl-
i=2 vant Hoff factor

For glucose vant Hoff factor will be 1
I=1

So higher the vant Hoff factor higher will be the loweirng of vapour pressure.
So barium nitrate will have highest lowering in vapour pressure

Order will be barium nitrate>Nacl>glucose

Thanks
All the very best.

Is HC Verma is sufficient for physics in JEE ADVANCED . R.D sharma and M.L khanna for MATHMATICS in JEE ADVANCED.....

Avishek Dutta 6th Dec, 2019
HC Verma and ML Khanna are good books for JEE but arenit sufficient.
For physics
1.Buy NCERT for understanding the syllabus and studying the basics
2.Buy any one of this
i.Arihant ii.Cengage
Now I woukd prefer Cengage for JEE advanced as the book thoroughly follows jee advanced patterns.
And now study and solve them .

For Mathematics
1.Buy Cengages or Arihant books
Solve as much as you can from them

Which book is most important for physics , chemistry and mathematics for JEE ADVANCED... for 2021 exam.. From now onwards

Saurabh Siddharth 6th Dec, 2019

Following is the list of few books for better preparation of JEE ADVANCE:

  • Physics- DC PANDEY, HC VERMA, CENGAGE
  • CHE- CENGAGE, NCERT (has much importance for inorganic and organic)
  • MATHS- CENGAGE, AARIHANT

You can prefer any book from above.

Suggestions

  • Do NCERT as well for jee advance. It would help you much.

Do HC Verma alongwith anyone to the other two but atleast complete anyone book. HC Verma would help you to clear the basics and you find it easy to solve other books after going through it.
