As soon as the official result of JEE Advanced 2018 was released on June 10, IIT Kanpur published the traditional notification stating the official statistics of the examination. While an assortment of information related to the examination was published in the notification, a striking finding was discovered that to an extent overshadowed the other details and led to serious questions about the difficulty levels of the exam - Whether the two level IIT JEE examinations are in contrast with each other and more? So is qualifying in JEE Advanced an accomplishable exercise or otherwise? We take a look at the JEE Advanced Result Analysis and Changing Trends to know which way the wind blows for better or worse

The first glaring detail that hits is the steady drop in the number of candidates who have qualified in JEE Advanced examination.  While the reasons attributed to this could range from difficulty levels to less number of candidates appearing for the exam, it still remains a fact that there is a visible decline in the numbers from over 32,000 candidates from the previous year to just 18,000 plus this year such that the MHRD had to intervene to lower the cutoffs. To make the difference more prominent, we see that of the total appeared candidates over 11.7% qualified JEE Advanced 2018, whereas in the previous session, the percentage of qualified candidates was 31.6% from the total who appeared. Take a look at the tables below that show

So what could be the reason for the steady drop in the number of qualifying candidates when the number of candidates eligible to appear for the exam has increased as did the seat intake in the IITs?

Commenting about the lower number of qualified candidates, IIT Kanpur Director Prof. Abhay Karandikar stated that the fall between the two years could be attributed to the awarding of 18 bonus marks to all candidates irrespective of any factor by IIT Madras on account of wrong questions and printing mistakes. The allotted bonus marks helped many students meet the cutoff standards and qualify the examination in the previous year.

 

In addition to this, the announcement of extra 291 seats plus about 800 supernumerary seats for female candidates raises questions as to who will fill the seats if the number of qualifying candidates is dismally low. The MHRD in an unprecedented move has asked IIT Kanpur to release a revised merit list that is supplementary to the one already announced. The cutoffs were lowered and the supplementary merit list published by IIT Kanpur on June 14. The new list brings the number of qualified students to about 31988 which mean that chances of vacant seats are reduced considerably.

 

 

The discrepancy in numbers between the candidates declared eligible for JEE Advanced, the numbers who actually write and then the ones who go on to qualify brings to mind that a serious resolution is needed to what is a much unplanned system. While JEE Main does not even have a qualifying cutoff, JEE Advanced has a high one that is normally not obtained by most candidates.  

 

Even with lowered cutoffs, only a small number of candidates have managed to qualify in the examination. So, what does that really signify? Is it a time to change the traditional way of evaluating students for these premium institutes, or something else? MHRD, according to reports has taken stock of the situation, glaring differences between the exams. Hopefully, students may see a way out of the no win situation.
