Eligibility for IIT JEE 2016

  • Criterion 1 – Performance in JEE (Main) 2016: The candidate should be among the top 1,50,000 (all categories included) in JEE (Main) 2016. The percentages of the total number of candidates for various categories is as follows: 50.5% for GEN (from the common merit list), 27% for OBC-NCL, 15% for SC and 7.5% for ST. Within each of these four categories, 3% horizontal reservation is available for PwD candidates.
  • Criterion 2 – Age limit: The candidate should have been born on or after October 1, 1990 if belonging to the GEN or OBC-NCL category and on or after October 1, 1985 if belonging to the SC, ST or PwD category.**
  • Criterion 3 – Number of attempts: A candidate can attempt JEE (Advanced) a maximum of two times and that too in consecutive years. Therefore, JEE (Advanced) 2016 should be either the candidate’s FIRST attempt OR the SECOND consecutive attempt.
  • Criterion 4 – 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 2014 or 2016. Candidates who appeared for the Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2014 and wish to re-appear for the same in 2016 (either for improvement or because they failed in one or more subjects), will have to re-appear in all the subjects in 2016.
  • Those who appeared for the first time in their Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2013 or earlier are NOT eligible. However, candidates whose Class XII (or equivalent) examination Board results for the academic year 2012-13 were declared after June 2013 are eligible to appear for JEE (Advanced)2016.
  • Criterion 5 – Earlier admission at IITs/ISM: 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 or ISM 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 2014 can appear for JEE (Advanced) 2016.

* Date of birth recorded in University or Secondary Education Board certificate will be the only basis of consideration.

** In case, of Scheduled Caste (SC), Scheduled Tribe (ST) and Persons with Disabilities (PwD) candidates, the relaxation of five years is given in the upper age limit. Hence, such candidates are eligible if their date of birth falls on or after October 01, 1984.


  • One of the criteria for admission to IITs and ISM is that the candidate should satisfy at least one of these two criteria: (1) He/she is within the category-wise top 20 percentile of successful candidates in his/her respective Class XII (or equivalent) board examination. (2) He/she has secured 75% (for GEN or OBC-NCL) or 70% (SC, ST or PwD) of aggregate marks in the Class XII (or equivalent) board examination.
  • The marks scored in the following five subjects will be considered for calculating the aggregate marks and the cut-off marks for fulfilling the top 20 percentile criterion: (1) Physics, (2) Chemistry, (3) Mathematics, (4) a language (if the candidate has taken more than one language, then the language with the higher marks will be considered), and (5) any subject other than the above four (the subject with the higher marks will be considered).
  • The category-wise cut-off marks for the top 20 percentile are calculated based on the marks scored by all the “successful” candidates in their respective boards.
  • The cut-off marks for PwD candidates will be the same as the lowest of the cut-off marks for GEN, OBC-NCL, SC and ST categories.
  • In case any of the subjects Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Language are not evaluated in the final year (e.g., in a 3-year diploma course), then the marks for the same subject from the previous year will be used for calculating the top 20 percentile cut-off and percentage of aggregate marks.
  • Candidates who have failed in one or more subjects in the Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2014 will have to reappear for all the subjects in 2016.
  • The top 20 percentile cut-off marks of the respective Boards in 2014 will be considered for candidates who pass the Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2014.
  • The top 20 percentile cut-off marks of the respective Boards in 2016 will be considered for candidates who pass the Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2016 and for those who appeared in 2014 but reappeared in all subjects in 2016 to improve the performance.
  • In case a Board does not provide information about the cut-off for the top 20 percentile, the candidate will have to produce a certificate from the respective Board stating that he/she falls within the top 20 percentile of successful candidates. If the candidate fails to do so, then the cut-off marks for the CBSE will be used.
  • If a Board awards only letter grades without providing an equivalent percentage of marks on the grade sheet, the candidate should obtain a certificate from the Board specifying the equivalent marks and submit it at the time of online acceptance of the allocated seat. In case such a certificate is not provided, the decision taken by the Joint Implementation Committee of JEE (Advanced) 2016 will be final.
  • If a Board gives aggregate marks considering both Class XI and Class XII examinations (in the 10+2 system), then only the Class XII marks will be considered.
  • If a Board gives aggregate marks considering the results of all three years of a 3-year diploma or courses of equivalent duration, then only the marks scored in the final year will be considered. Similarly, for Boards which follow a semester system, the marks scored in the final two semesters will be considered.
  • If a Board does not give marks scored in individual subjects but gives only the aggregate marks, then the aggregate marks given by the Board will be considered as such.
  • The criteria, as specified above, is applicable “in toto” to all the candidates including foreign nationals.


  • Results will be declared on Thursday, June 18, 2016 10:00 IST. All India Rank (AIR) and Category Rank of successful candidates will be available on the online portal after the results are declared.
  • Individual rank cards will NOT be sent to candidates.
  • Obtaining a rank in JEE (Advanced) 2016 does not guarantee admission to IITs or ISM.
