Eligibility Criteria for Appearing in JEE Advanced 2020

For all candidates, Indian Nationals (including PIO/OCI).

Criterion 1 – Performance in JEE Main 2020: The candidate should be among the top 2,50,000* candidates (all categories included) in JEE Main 2020. The percentages of the total number of candidates for various categories is as follows:
46.5% for GEN (from the common merit list), 4% 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.

Criterion 2 – Number of attempts: A candidate can attempt JEE (Advanced) a maximum of two times and that too in consecutive years. Therefore, JEE (Advanced) 2020 should be either the candidate’s FIRST attempt OR the SECOND consecutive attempt.

Criterion 3 – 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 2019 or 2020.
However, if the examination Board of Class XII (or equivalent) declares the results for the academic year 2017-18 after June 2018, then the candidates of that board who appeared for their class XII exam in 2018 are also eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2020, provided they meet the other eligibility criteria. In case, the examination Board of Class XII (or equivalent) declared the results for the academic year 2017-18 before June 2018 but the result of a particular candidate was withheld, then the candidate will not be eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2020.

Candidates who appeared for the Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2019 and wish to re-appear for the same in 2020 (either for improvement or because they failed in one or more subjects), will have to re-appear in all the subjects in 2020.

Criterion 4 – Age limit: Candidates should have been born on or after October 1, 1995. Five years relaxation is given to SC, ST and PwD candidates, i.e., these candidates should have been born on or after October 1, 1990.

Criterion 5 – 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 2019 can appear for JEE (Advanced) 2020.
The candidates who paid seat acceptance fee in 2019 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 2019 are eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2020.

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. [Not valid for JEE Advanced 2020. Due to the partial cancellation of class XII exams by several Boards, Joint Admission Board (JAB) has decided to relax the eligibility criterion for JEE Advanced 2020 qualified candidates this time. Qualified candidates who have passed class XII examinations will now be eligible for admissions irrespective of marks obtained.]
