Can I appear in the JEE Advanced with an overall 67% being from the scheduled caste?
Important information regarding marks in CLASS XII (OR EQUIVALENT) BOARD EXAMINATION FOR ADMISSIONThe candidates should satisfy at least one of the following two criteria for admission to IITs:Must have secured at least 75% aggregate marks in the Class XII (or equivalent) Board examination. The aggregate marks for SC, ST and PwD candidates should be at least 65%. orMust be within the category-wise top 20 percentile of successful candidates in their respective Class XII (or equivalent) board examination.The percentile calculation will be done for the required subjects in a single academic year only. Therefore, candidates appearing for improvement in Board examinations can EITHER appear in one or more subjects and secure 75% aggregate marks (65% for SC, ST and PwD) after improvement, OR, appear for improvement in ALL subjects to be in top 20 percentile (see section titled “Regarding the cut-off marks for the top 20 percentile”) of the corresponding academic year.The marks scored in the following five subjects will be considered for calculating the aggregate marks and the cut-off marks for fulfilling the top 20 percentile criterion.PhysicsChemistryMathematicsA language (if the candidate has taken more than one language, then the language with the higher marks will be considered)Any subject other than the above four (the subject with the highest marks will be considered).For calculation of the total marks for five subjects, if the marks awarded in a subject is NOT out of 100, then the marks will be scaled (up or down) to 100 so that the total aggregate marks is out of 500.If a Board awards only letter grades without providing an equivalent percentage of marks on the grade sheet, the candidate should obtain a certificate from the Board specifying the equivalent marks and submit it at the time of acceptance of the allocated seat. In case such a certificate is not provided, the decision taken by the Joint Implementation Committee of JEE (Advanced) 2022 will be final.In case any of the subjects Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Language are not evaluated in the final year (e.g., in a 3-year diploma course), then the marks for the same subject from the previous year/s will be used for calculating percentage of aggregate marks.For candidates who appeared in the Class XII (or equivalent) Board examination for the first time in 2022 and reappeared in ALL subjects (for whatsoever reason) in 2022. the best of the two performances will be considered.If a Board gives aggregate marks considering both Class XI and Class XII examinations (in the 10+2 system), then only Class XII marks will be considered. If a Board gives aggregate marks considering the results of all three years of a 3-year diploma or courses of equivalent duration, then only the marks scored in the final year will be considered. Similarly, for Boards which follow a semester system, the marks scored in the final two semesters will be considered.If a Board does not give marks scored in individual subjects but gives only the aggregate marks, then the aggregate marks given by the Board will be considered as such.For more refer to Will I be eligible for the JEE Advanced? I got 72% in boards. If taking the Improvement exam in two subjects crosses the barrier of 75%, will I be eligible for it, or the top 20 percentile will be considered?
