Revised Eligibility Criteria for Appearing in JEE Advanced 2022

JEE Advanced revised eligibility criteria for all candidates, Indian Nationals (including NRI/ PIO/ OCI).

  • Performance in JEE Main: The candidate should be among the top 2,50,000* candidates (all categories included) in JEE Main 2022. [Candidates who successfully registered for JEE Advanced 2020 and 2021 but not able to give the exam due to COVID-19 reasons, are not required to qualify JEE Main 2022. They can directly appear for JEE Advanced 2022.]
    The percentages of the total number of candidates for various categories is as follows:
    40.5% for GEN (from the common merit list), 10% for GEN-EWS, 27% for OBC-NCL, 15% for SC and 7.5% for ST. Within each of these four categories, 5% horizontal reservation is available for PwD candidates.
    *The total number of candidates can be slightly greater than 2,50,000 in the presence of “tied” ranks/scores in any category.
  • Number of attempts: A candidate can attempt JEE (Advanced) a maximum of two times and that too in consecutive years. Therefore, JEE Advanced 2022 should be either the candidate’s FIRST attempt OR the SECOND consecutive attempt. [IIT JAB has decided to give an additional attempt option to appear in JEE Advanced 2022 to those candidates who registered for JEE Advanced 2020 and 2021 but missed out on giving the exam due to COVID-19.]
  • Appearance in Class XII (or equivalent) examination: The candidate should have appeared for the Class XII (or equivalent) examination for the first time in all the subjects in either 2021 or 2022. However, if the examination Board of Class XII (or equivalent) declares the results for the academic year 2019-20 after June 2020, then the candidates of that board who appeared for their class XII exam in 2020 are also eligible to appear in JEE Advanced 2022, provided they meet the other eligibility criteria. In case, the examination Board of Class XII (or equivalent) declared the results for the academic year 2019-20 before June 2020 but the result of a particular candidate was withheld, then the candidate will not be eligible to appear in JEE Advanced 2022.
  • Age limit: Candidates should have been born on or after October 1, 1997. Five years relaxation is given to SC, ST and PwD candidates, i.e., these candidates should have been born on or after October 1, 1992.
  • Earlier admission at IITs: The candidate should NOT have taken admission (irrespective of whether or not he/she continued in the program) OR even accepted admission by paying admission fee at any of the IITs in the past; even candidates whose admission was cancelled are NOT eligible. However, candidates who have been admitted to a preparatory course in any of the IITs in 2021 can appear for JEE Advanced 2022.
    The candidates who paid seat acceptance fee in 2021 but (i) did not report at any reporting centre OR, (ii) withdrew before the last round of seat allotment, OR, (iii) had their seat cancelled (for whatever reason) before the last round of seat allotment for IITs, during the joint seat allocation in 2021 are eligible to appear in JEE Advanced 2022.
  • Performance in Class 12 (or equivalent) Board Examination : For admission in IITs, a candidate should either be in category wise top 20 percentile in class XII or must have scored at least 75% aggregate marks for general and OBC-NCL or 65% aggregate marks for SC, ST and PwD candidates. [This criteria was removed for JEE 2021 because of the difficulty faced by students in COVID-19 pandemic. Candidates just had to PASS class XII exam with these subjects: Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, A language, Any other 5th subject.]

Will the number of attempts for the JEE Advanced be increased for 2022?

No, the number of attempts for JEE Advanced hasn't changed. However, IIT JAB (Apex body of IITs) has decided to give one more chance to JEE Advanced 2020 and 2021 aspirants (who registered but miss out on giving the exam due to COVID-19 pandemic) to appear in JEE Advanced 2022.
