Percentile Cut Off of Top 20 Ranks for Class 12 To Be Released Soon to Facilitate JEE Exams

By Malavikka

In a bid to ensure timely admission of students into premiere colleges such as Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and other engineering colleges without delaying, the school education boards across the country have been asked to provide the top 20 percentile cut-off to JEE Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) for class 12 examination soon. The deadline given for this is June 10.

During a meeting of the Council of Boards of School Education in India (COBSE), that includes all school education boards and the CBSE, this was decided.


The criteria for enrolling in IIT or NIT is that students should have secured 75% marks or be in the top 20 percentile of a school to attend the JoSAA. Without the scores, it would be difficult for JoSAA to conduct the entrance exams.

Cut Off percentile of Class 12 Students To Be Out

"All the school boards have been asked by COBSE to furnish the top 20-percentile cut-off, which is a qualifying mark for JEE main. The information will be used for preparing the cut-off for the engineering exam," said a source.

It is learnt that the boards, including CBSE, have agreed to provide the details by the middle of May. The registration process for joint seat allocation system will commence on June 15. "IITs and other institutes have informed the COBSE about the problem they face during the admission process if school boards delay this. June 10 should be the last date for providing such information which is vital for the admission process," said a government official who did not want to be named.

Earlier, there were delays in the seat allocation for IITS and NITs due to this problem. Now, there is hope for making the admissions on time after amending the process.
