Chairman, CSAB 2013 has published a message seeking apology for the mix-up and mistake(s) In JEE Main 2013 Round 1 allotment which was announced yesterday.  CSAB Chairman 2013 Sunil Kr Sarangi says the goof-up happened because of a computer glitch, which “happened because of usage of Orissa instead of Odisha”. 

The mismatch led to wrong allotment which ran across for all the institutes and branches. The home state allocation was also affected because of the same since 50% of the seats in an NIT are reserved for the home state candidates.

Also, there were mistakes for the students involving Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand students and involving dual (architecture and engineering) seat allocation.

Many students got affected because of these mix-ups and students who were allotted a seat yesterday are out of the list today, or the college and branch which was allotted to a student today is now changed.

There are some students who had no allotment yesterday but got seats allotted to them today. 

The Chairman states that the flaws are now corrected and correct seat allocation is available on the website. You can check your allocation here.

It’s appreciable the Chairman and CSAB team has apologized for the blunder but it clearly shows the administrative failure of CSAB. It must not be taken on lighter note and ignored because it involves career and future of many students. Now who can be sure the new allotments are goof-up free?

LATEST: Careers360 has written an Open Letter to Chairman CSAB 2013. We have pointed out all the questions that students are asking the CSAB Body conducting GFTI/CFTI admissions for 2013. Click Here to read the complete letter. 

JEE Main is India’s pioneer engineering entrance exam for admission in premier colleges like NITs, CFTIs etc. and screening round to appear for JEE Advance which is the key for admissions in most reputed ones, the IITs.

In time when the whole admission process is under red scanner for some or the other reason, let it be normalization procedure followed by the CBSE or delays in result announcement, students and parents are protesting against the admission process adopted this year, petitions are filed in High Courts of India and even apex court, Supreme Court of India, such blunder puts a question mark that how administratively efficient the whole process is?

 Supreme Court of India has also mentioned in the hearing today that the admissions to the NITs will be subjected to the final verdict of the Apex Court. Click Here to read more.

Sarthak Dhiman 28th Mar, 2020

Hello Aspirant.

As you've mentioned that you've scored 44 marks in JEE main examination and assuming you're a general candidate. At this much marks it's really difficult for you to get admission into private or semi government college.

You should try out to give more examinations such as UPSEE BITSAT and VITEEE.

To know which colleges you can get click on the link below

Best of luck


how many exam give in jee main

Anantika Kushwaha 28th Mar, 2020
Hello Aspirant,

A candidate can give JEE Mains 6 times in his/her lifetime. 2 attempts per year for 3 consecutive years are given starting the year you are appearing in 12th standard.

JEE Mains paper consists of 3 subjects. Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. Each holding a weightage of 120 marks.

How many times I can give JEE MAINS AND JEE ADVANCED in my life if my first exam will be on January 2021

Harshit sethi 28th Mar, 2020

It doesn't depend on the number of chances that you can give JEE Advanced and JEE Mains.  It depends when you have passed Class 12 examination . You can usually give JEE Mains and JEE Advanced a year later also.  You can give maximum 4 attempts but you have only two year to give a maximum of 4 attempts .


cutoff percentile to qualify into SRM & LPU university by jee mains

Aman Raj Student Expert 28th Mar, 2020

Hello Pavan

Srm conducts it's own Entrance exam, SRMJEE and on that basis only you are given admission in SRM and it's other branches. JEE Mains Marks is not considered by SRM.

Coming to LPU then yes LPU also conducts it's own Entrance, NEST but it also consider JEE mains with 80+ marks.
