Following the updated rules and criteria, the JEE (mains) qualifying candidates only need to secure passing marks in Class 12th examinations. For getting into IITs, a general category rank holder in JEE (Advanced) should have scored 75% in his/her Board results. An SC/ST candidate, on the other hand, should have scored at least 65% in their board exams.

Replacing this, the Joint Admission Board has decided to allow students with passing marks to appear for JEE (Advanced). The decision was announced by MHRD Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ in one of his tweets.
