Top 20 Percentile of Class 12 Boards for NITs, IIITs and CFTIs

Top 20 Percentile of Class 12 Boards for NITs, IIITs and CFTIsTop 20 Percentile of Class 12 Boards for NITs, IIITs and CFTIs - Joint Seat Allocation Authority has released the top 20 percentile of class 12 boards for NITs, IIIITs and GFTIs. Candidates can use these cutoff marks to check if they are among the top 20 percentile of class 12 or equivalent exam in their respective boards and hence are eligible for admission to the NITs, IIITs and CFTIs or not. The top 20 percentile of class 12 boards will be considered for admission to the 31 NITs, 23 IIITs and 23 GFTIs even if they don’t score the prescribed minimum 75% marks (65 % in case of SC, ST, and PwD), in class 12 or equivalent. Consequently candidates seeking admission to the NITs, IIITs, and CFTIs may fulfill any of the two conditions for admission – (a) score minimum 75% marks, or (b) be ranked in the top 20 percentile in their respective boards. Since each board has a different scoring pattern, the cutoff marks for the top 20 percentile candidates may vary across boards. For example, the cutoff of OC category in 2018 for CBSE is 432 marks, while it is 468 for Board of Intermediate (Andhra Pradesh and it is 360 for the Assam Board students. Admission to the above mentioned institutes will be based on JEE Main ranks. Careers360 brings you the category-wise top 20 percentile of class 12th board exam for admission to NITs, IIITs and CFTIs.

 

Top 20 Percentile Cutoff of Class 12 Boards for NITs, IIITs, and CFTI

  • To calculate top 20 percentile for different class 12 boards, marks scored in five subjects will be considered:

  1. Physics

  2. Chemistry

  3. Mathematics

  4. A language and

  5. Any subject other than the above four

  • If a candidate has appeared in more than one language, the language with higher marks will be considered

  • If the candidate has more than one 5th paper, the one with higher marks will be considered

  • The total marks of a subject will be scaled (up or down to 100), if the marks awarded in a paper is not 100. Consequently, the total aggregate marks will be out of 500. 

  • If a candidate has passed class 12 in 2017, but in a bid to improve or for any other reason, writes one or more subjects, then the top 20 percentile for 2017 will be considered. However, if the candidate appears in all the papers, then the best of the two performances will be considered.
