The candidates figuring in the category rank lists will be those who do not figure in the 75,750 candidates chosen from the CML.
A Total of 3% of the candidates selected within each category will be those belonging to PWD (Persons with Disability) sub-category, who figure in the respective rank lists of JEE (Main).
Only the candidate's aggregate marks in JEE (Main) will be considered and no tie-break mechanism will be implemented at this stage. This will make the list of candidates eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2019 slightly more than 1,50,000 due to bunching of candidates with the same aggregate marks at the bottom of each category.
