Candidates who have appeared for JEE Advanced can now visit the official website to access their rank card. Over 1.5 lakh candidates appeared for the JEE Advanced examination with an aim of grabbing a seat in the prestigious IITs. Here are the things you need to do now that the results are announced.
How JEE Advanced Score Is Calculated
Candidates who appeared for both the papers of JEE Advanced will only be considered for the ranking process. The marks obtained in paper-I will be added with marks obtained in the paper-II of all the subjects, namely physics, chemistry and mathematics.
The aggregate marks are calculated based on the sum of the marks awarded to a candidates in physics, chemistry and mathematics. The rank list is prepared based on the aggregate marks in JEE Advanced.
What Is Tie-break Policy In JEE Advanced?
If the aggregate marks scored by two or more candidates are the same, then the organiser will consider the tie-breaking policy. Candidates who earned higher positive marks will be awarded a higher rank. If the first step also fails to break the tie, then the organisers will consider who scored more in the mathematics paper. If this also doesn't break the tie, they will refer to the marks the candidates scored in physics. If the students are still tied, they are awarded the same rank.
Cut-off Of JEE Advanced
The cut-off of JEE Advanced will be based on the minimum rank secured by the candidates for an admission to the seats in the IITs. The cut-off will vary based on the category, selection and institute. The cut-off of JEE Advanced 2018 is not yet available.
