I got 88.2 percentile in jee main jan 2020 I belong to ST category.. Do I Eligible for Jee advanced 2020 with this percentile. if so, What is the minimum raw marks should score in Advance in order to get a seat in IIT

Awanya Dabas 18th Feb, 2020

Hey!

JEE Mains' cutoff will be released by NTA when the results of both the session (January and April) will be out.

Last year's JEE Main cutoff for ST Category was 44.3345172 percentile. This year, it is expected to be around 45 only.  Therefore, you have very high chances of qualifying JEE Mains.

According to the last year's cutoff for ST Category, the minimum percentage required in each subject was 5%, and the minimum percentage of aggregate marks was 17.5%.

This year also, it is expected to be around that only. So, to qualify JEE Advanced, you need to get atleast this much percentage.

Hope this answer helps!

i have 73 percentile , am i qualify to jee advance 2020 ? categery is backward classes andhrapradesh

sheba chani 16th Feb, 2020

Hello!

It's difficult to tell the exact qualifying percentile but according to the previous year's data, the probable cutoff for OBC(Other Backward Classes) will range from 74-76. This differs from year to year according to number of students who wrote the exam. Considering this is would appear that you are on the edge.

Keep an eye out for the official cutoff list. All the best!
