If you have appeared earlier and now wish to drop one year for JEE Main, it may not be the ideal solution. Well, dropping one year is a waste of 12 months that could be used to complete one year of the four years that comprise B.Tech. NITs and IIITs or the IITs are not just the only good places to study. There are plenty of good institutes and universities which take through JEE Main and have a good ranking. Its better to apply for admission to these and complete your under graduation as JEE Main marks or rank won't matter after the admission. In such a case, try for a good performance in your under graduation such that you stand a better chance of placements.
Some colleges and Universities that consider JEE Main scores are
Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology
SRM University - it considers JEE main scores apart from its entrance exam
Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham - The university also considers JEE main scores apart from AEEE scores
Other universities that take JEE Main scores are IIIT Hyderabad, IIIT Delhi, IIIT Bangalore, JMI, Sastra University, Amity University, DTU, NSIT and more.
States like Haryana, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Bihar, Nagaland, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan etc also take through JEE Main.
With so many options, its best not to take a drop. Instead, it's wise to complete B.Tech and try for an M.Tech or an MBA seat in one of the IITs or NITs.
The answer still would be to look for a college that takes admissions either through JEE Main or class 12. The above list is just an indicator about the large number of options available to you wherein you can compete your under graduation from a good university or college and then get well placed.
Try for colleges and universities which take through class 12. Not all colleges and universities ask for JEE Main scores. Many have their own entrance tests which are conducted after JEE Main. You could apply for these. Also you could look at admissions into colleges that take through class 12. Some examples for this would be
Statistics from previous years have shown that taking a drop is not an advisable idea as the number of students who have successfully cracked JEE Main after taking a drop of 1 year is less than 5%. The reason is fatigue on account of studying the same thing all over again and carrying the additional stress of having to do or die. So it's advisable to look for good options and build a good career than wasting one year.
In spite of all, if you still wish to take a drop of one year for JEE Main, then the decision should be taken after careful consideration and consultation with parents and teachers.

The minimum marks or the cut off of JEE MAIN keeps changing every year on the basis of difficulty. It is about 75-85 in previous few years. It was about 115 few times out of 360. Now, JEE MAIN will be of 300 marks from this year. So the safe side for cracking JEE MAIN would be 100 marks approximately but you should try to get much marks than this. Good luck.
