State Board Cut Off For Eligibility To IIT JEE AdvancedThe Human Resource Development Ministry has finally decided upon the eligibility cut offs for different boards across the Indian states. This comes following the consensus reached by the HRD ministry and the IITs where it was agreed that there was to be a single entrance exam for admission into the colleges offering engineering and technological sciences as a subject. It was decided that there will be one Joint entrance exam divided into two levels to decide the fates of engineering aspirants across India.

Since many students in India are enrolled in different State boards, it was initially very difficult to set a basic cut off for the finalized eligibility criterion for admission into the IITs. The State board marking scheme is not as generous as its CBSE or ICSE counterparts therefore, many students who were genuinely interested in the field of engineering and research could not qualify for the exam. To eradicate this, the government has now made it compulsory for students to score within the top 20 percentile bracket of their respective boards to be eligible for IIT.

The percentile cut offs for each board have been given below:

Andhra Pradesh 87.20

Assam 54.20

Bihar 64.60

CBSE 77.80

Chhatisgarh 56.80

Goa 56.25

Himachal Pradesh 63.20

Jharkhand 52.40

Jammu & Kashmir 67

Karnataka 67.50

Kerala 76.50

Meghalaya 49.40

Manipur 64.60

Madhya Pradesh 64

Maharashtra 61.17

Mizoram 56.20

Nagaland 49

Orissa 56.33

Punjab 70.80

Rajasthan 63.80

Tripura 50.80

Tamil Nadu 78.17

Uttarakhand 55.20

Uttar Pradesh 65

West Bengal 58

National Open School 60.60

So, if you belong to the percentile bracket given for your board and if you are in top 150,000 candidates clearing JEE Main, then you may qualify for JEE-Advanced, the gateway test to IIT.

These figures are approximate & applicable for students of the General category only. Students belonging to the reserved category have a lower percentile cut off.
