There is no requirement to have Physics, Chemistry, and Math (PCM) in 12th to appear for JEE Mains 2025. You must have passed the class 12 exam in 2023, 2024, or 2025 .You need to have studied at least five subjects in your qualifying exam, with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics being mandatory. This means your PCB combination fulfills the Physics and Chemistry requirement.

Since you haven't studied Math in 12th, you need to put in extra effort to build a strong foundation in Mathematics, which is a crucial subject for JEE Mains.Qualifying for JEE Advanced, which allows admission to IITs, requires Mathematics at the 12th-grade level.

Alliance University Bangalore doesn't specify a single entrance exam for this program on their official website. Here are the possibilities:

  • Alliance University Scholastic Aptitude Test (AUSAT): This is the university's own entrance exam. It's a possibility for admission to various undergraduate programs, including engineering.

  • JEE Main/Advanced: These national-level engineering entrance exams are widely accepted by many universities in India. While not explicitly mentioned, Alliance might consider JEE scores for B.Tech. programs.

  • Other State or National Level Engineering Entrance Exams: Some states might have their own engineering entrance exams, and Alliance could potentially accept scores from those as well.

  • Merit-Based Admission: In some cases, Alliance might grant admission based solely on your Class 12th marks (depending on availability of seats).

No, directly floating your choices to get a higher preference in subsequent JoSAA counselling rounds isn't guaranteed.

JoSAA uses a demand-filling process. In each round, it allocates seats based on candidate preferences, institute/branch choices, and candidate ranks.

If you don't get any of your higher choices (including your 1st choice) in a round, and a seat is available in one of your lower choices (like your 4th choice), JoSAA might allocate that seat to you.

However, there is no guarantee that your 1st choice will become available in later rounds.

During the second round (or any subsequent round), you'll have the option to either freeze your allocated seat (4th choice) or float it. Floating means you're willing to give up your current seat for a chance at a higher preference in the next round.

If you are happy with your allocated seat (4th choice) and don't mind attending that college/branch, you can lock it (freeze). Consider how likely it is for your 1st choice to become available in the next rounds. If the seats for your 1st choice are filling quickly, floating might be a gamble. You might end up with no seat at all in the next round. Floating involves some risk. You might lose your current seat (4th choice) and not get your 1st choice either. Locking secures your current seat but eliminates the possibility of getting your 1st choice.

I hope it helps!

You are eligible for JEE Advanced for two consecutive years starting from the year you appear for your Class 12 board exams.

You gave your 12th board exams in 2024 and attempted JEE Advanced in the same year (2024). You then took a drop and didn't appear for JEE Advanced in 2025. Since you haven't exhausted your two attempts yet, you can appear for JEE Advanced in 2026.
