“Admission to IITs will be based only on category wise All India Rank (AIR) in JEE (Advanced)"
admissions to the undergraduate programmes at IITs and ISM, Dhanbad, for the academic session starting in July, were done based on the rank of a candidate in the JEE(Advanced). The candidates were to take the Paper 1 of JEE(Main), conducted by the CBSE, on April(offline) as well as (online). The top candidates, from all categories, based on their JEE(Main) scores, were to be eligible for appearing in JEE(Advanced).

JEE (Advanced) had two papers; each had three parts - Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. In both the papers, parts 1, 2, and 3 contained 20 questions each in Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics, respectively. The questions were numbered consecutively in both the papers.

A candidate could have scored anything between −30 to 180 in Paper-1, and between −60 to 180 in Paper-2. That is, marks of a candidate might have taken any value between −90 to 360, with the minimum and maximum possible marks in each subject being −30 and 120, respectively.
Relaxations of 10% and of 50% were given on the average marks in each subject for considering the OBC and SC/ST/PD category candidates for ranking.
In previous JEE exams, the question paper is divided among the three subjects, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, such that Physics appears first, followed by Chemistry and then Mathematics. Analysis of the number of questions attempted by the students in both Paper 1 as well as Paper 2 shows that maximum numbers of un-attempted questions are invariably in Mathematics. This is due to the paucity in time available to the student. Considering the fact that quantitative skills are an extremely important component of the testing process, it is proposed to change this order to Mathematics, followed by Physics and then Chemistry.
