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!

2.general EWS -78.2 - 78 to 83 Mark's

3. OBC - 74.3 - 72 to 77 marks

4. SC- 54 - 51 to 55 marks

5. ST- 44.3  39 to 44 Mark's

Hope this helps

How much Marks out of 300 should I want to get to study in JEE mains to study in NIT- Trichy

Sharon Rose Student Expert 18th Feb, 2020
Hello,
Considering 2019 cut off trends to get seat in NIT, Trichy a candidate must score a rank below 10,000 and to score such rank you need to get a percentile above 98 and your marks must be above 150 marks to be on safe side if you belong to general category and if you belong to any other category your percentile must be above 95 percentile and 130+ marks.
