Top 20 Percentile Cutoff of Class 12 Boards for IIT Admission

IIT-admission-top-20-percentile
As per JEE Advanced eligibility criteria, aspiring candidates need to either secure at least 75% aggregate marks (for Gen Category) in the class XII (or equivalent)and 65% aggregate marks (for SC, ST and PwD candidates) or they should be in category-wise top 20-percentile in their respective class XII (or equivalent) board examination. This means that in order to be eligible for IIT admissions through JEE Advanced exam, the candidates need to fulfil either of the two eligibility requirements. Even if you are not among those who are able to score 75% aggregate marks in class 12th examination, you still have the admission opportunity based on top 20 percentile of class 12th board. However, you may wonder how much marks should one secure in class 12th board in order to be eligible for IIT admissions. This article lists the category-wise top 20 percentile of class 12th board exam for the years 2018, 2017 and 2016 for admission into IITs. The date for 2018 was only recently released by JoSAA. Check the top 20 percentile and gear up to score the required cutoff marks.

 

Top 20 Percentile Cutoff of Class 12 Boards for IIT Admission

 

How Top 20 Percentile Cutoff of class 12th Boards for IIT Admission is calculated?

Know your Admission chances through JEE Advanced, Paper-2, BITSAT and JEE Main

  • For calculating top 20 percentile for different class 12th boards, the marks scored in five subjects - (1) Physics, (2) Chemistry, (3) Mathematics, (4) A language and (5) Any subject other than the above four, is taken into account.

  • In case a candidate has taken more than 1 languages as the 4th subject in class 12th, then the language with higher marks will be considered.

  • If candidates have taken more than one subject (any subject other than the above four) as the 5th subject in class 12th, then also the subject with higher marks will be taken into account.

  • If the marks in a subject are not allotted out of 100, then the total marks for a subject will be scaled (up or down) to 100 so that the total aggregate marks is out of 500.

  • In case a candidate passes class XII in 2017, but appears for improvement in one or a few subjects in the year 2018, then the top 20 percentile cutoff for 2017 will be considered. However, if a candidate appears for improvement in all the subjects in 2018, then in this case, best of the two performances (2017 or 2018) will be considered. Thus, candidates appearing for improvement in the next year are advised to take all the 5 papers, as their aggregate marks for the year (in which they appear for improvement) will only be considered only if they appear in the improvement in all 5 subjects.
