Criterion 4: Appearance in Class XII (or equivalent) examination: Applicant should have appeared for the Class XII (or equivalent) examination for the first time in either 2016 or 2017. However, candidates whose Class XII (or equivalent) examination results for the academic year 2014-15 were declared after June 2015 are eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2017.
Criterion 5: Earlier admission at IITs: A candidate should not have been admitted in an IIT irrespective of whether or not he/she continued in the program or accepted the IIT seat by reporting at a reporting centre in the past. The candidates whose admission at IITs was cancelled are also not eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2017. Those who have been admitted to a preparatory course in any of the IITs for the first time in 2016 can appear in JEE (Advanced) 2017. Those who have paid seat acceptance fee but not accepted the seat (by not reporting at any reporting centre during joint seat allocation in 2016) are eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2017.
Eligibility for admission:
For admissions based on JEE (Advanced) Rank/Score, applicant must have scores 75% aggregate marks in the Class XII (or equivalent) Board examination (65% aggregate for SC/ST/PwD candidates) or must be in the category-wise top 20 percentile of successful candidates in their respective Class XII (or equivalent) board examination. The marks scored in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, a language (if the candidate has taken more than one language, then the language with the higher marks) and any subject other than the above four (the subject with the higher marks will be considered) will be considered. The percentile calculation will be done for the required subjects in a single academic year only. More details are available in the Information Brochure and the website, http://www.jeeadv.ac.in/.
The category-wise cut-off marks for the top 20 percentile are calculated based on the marks scored by all the ‘successful’ candidates in their respective boards in the particular year. The cut-off marks for PwD candidates will be the same as the lowest of the cut-off marks for GEN, OBC-NCL, SC and ST categories. Top 20 percentile cut-off for the academic year 2017 will be considered for the candidates who pass the Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2017. Similarly, top 20 percentile cut-off for the academic year 2016 will be considered for the candidates who pass the Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2016.
If a candidate passes Class XII in 2016 but writes one or a few subjects in 2017 for improvement or any other reason, then top 20 percentile cut-off for 2016 will be considered. However, if a candidate writes all the subjects in 2017, then the top 20 percentile cut-off for 2017 will be considered. In case a Board does not provide information about the cut-off for the top 20 percentile, the candidate will have to produce a certificate from the respective Board stating that he/she falls within the top 20 percentile of successful candidates. If the candidate fails to do so, then the cut-off marks for the CBSE will be used.
The marks scored in the 2017 Class XII (or equivalent) Board examination will be considered for candidates who pass the Class XII examination in 2017. The marks scored by a candidate in the 2016 Class XII (or equivalent) Board examination will be considered for candidates who pass the Class XII examination in 2016. If a candidate passes Class XII (or equivalent) in 2016, but writes one of the required subjects (mentioned above) in 2017 for improvement or any other reason, then the aggregate percentage will be calculated by considering the maximum marks obtained in the required subjects.

If the aggregate mark scored by two or more candidates is the same, then the following tie-break policy will be used for awarding ranks: Higher rank will be assigned to the candidate who has obtained higher marks in Mathematics. If this does not break the tie, higher rank will be assigned to the candidate who has obtained higher marks in Physics. If there is a tie even after this, candidates will be assigned the same rank. Rank lists for preparatory courses will be prepared for SC, ST, and PwD candidates in all categories who satisfy the prescribed relaxed criteria. A candidate who qualifies in more than one category will be considered in all the categories to which he/she belongs for the purpose of ranking. There will be no waiting list for ranking.
Only candidates who score the minimum prescribed marks in each subject and in aggregate will be included in the rank list. The minimum prescribed mark varies with the category. Minimum percentage of marks prescribed for Rank List Minimum percentage of marks in each subject and Minimum percentage of aggregate marks for inclusion in the rank list will be as follows:
