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.
