Q
JEE Advanced 2017 qualifying marks

I have scored 73% in my 12th standard examination. Am I eligible to write the JEE Advanced exam?

Asked By: Anmol Jha,

A
Answer By: GetmyuniEnterprise

If the candidate belongs to the General/OBC category then the candidate should have scored minimum 75% and if the candidate belongs to the SC/ST/PwD category then the candidate should have scored minimum 65% in their 12th standard examination or the candidate must be in the top 20 percentile of successful candidates in their respective class 12 board exams. 
If the candidate passes class 12 in 2016 and is rewriting one/all of the required subjects in 2017 for improvement or any other reason, then the aggregate percentage is calculated using the maximum marks in the required subjects.

Here in this case the candidate is eligible if he/she satisfies the other criteria.
