Q. What is considered in JEE Advanced counselling - the All India Rank or Category rank?

Ans: Both the All India Rank (AIR) and Category rank will be considered during JEE Advanced 2018 counselling. For example, candidates belonging to Open category will be considered for admission based on their AIR only. However, a candidate belonging to, say, SC category will be considered for admission in both Open and SC categories, provided the candidate meets the individual cutoffs.


Q. What is the cutoff and admission process for students from Nepal, Bhutan or Bangladesh? Is there any reservation or specific quota for them?

Ans: The admission authorities don’t normally release any cutoff as such for foreign candidates (including Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh). Also, reservation of seats is not available for these candidates under either OBC-NCL or SC, ST and PwD categories. Instead they are accommodated by creating up to 10% supernumerary seats in each course.

Admission Process: Admission to the IITs will be based on JEE Advanced 2018 scores. However, unlike their Indian counterparts, foreign candidates don’t need to qualify JEE Main 2018 and can directly register for JEE Advanced 2018.
