Variation In IIT-JEE 2013 Cut-off Marks

According to the new IIT-JEE (Joint Entrance Exam) for the year 2013, the cut-off may vary for different boards. It will prove to be a disadvantage for students as the cut-off varies up-to 20%. Earlier, the eligibility for IIT's was that the students should have attained 60% or more in Board Exams.

According to the new pattern, the percentage requirement will be as follows :

  • For General Category Candidates :
  • CBSE : 77.8%
  • Tamil Nadu Board : 78.1%
  • Karnataka : 67.5%
  • Uttar Pradesh : 65%
  • Madhya Pradesh : 64%
  • WestaBengal Board Exam : 58%

Based on the new format of IIT-JEE, there will be one main paper and one advanced paper for each subject. In order to ensure that the new format functions smoothly, the school boards have decided to declare their examination results before June 10.

Preliminary data of seven boards across the country shows that the percentage required to be in the top 20 percentile, on a necessary condition to be eligible for the IIT-JEE next year- varying for different boards. The final rank will depend on the performance in the advanced exam.

As mentioned above, these cut-off would apply only for General Category students. For students seeking to take the test under various quotas then it would be quite less. However, separate data will be compiled for these categories soon.

The Council of Boards of School Education (COBSE), which compiled the data this year, said all state boards have been asked to put up their percentage figures in the public domain soon. The sources of COBSE says "Once the students knows the percentage, he/she can prepare for professional entry into IIT's accordingly. There will be just minor variations in this figure every year. Also the ICSE, CBSE, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu are most likely to be in the highest percentage bracket. Boards such as those of the West Bengal, Jharkhand and Bihar will be at the lower end".

IIT Guwahati Director, Gautam Baruah said "Next year, the numbers would fluctuate around this data. So, an IIT aspirant can know how much he/she should aim for in the Boards".
