Arch in IITs will be selected only on the basis of their All India Rank in JEE Advanced but they will have to qualify for the Architecture Aptitude Test (AAT) also, which will be conducted in zonal IITs on the 4th Week of June.
    If you make it to the top 1,50,000 rank holders in JEE Main, you should make sure that you register online for the AAT during the 4th Week of June.
