Indian Institute Of Technology (IIT) is all prepped up to announce the JEE Advanced 2015 results on June 18, 2015 via its official website jeeadv.iitkgp.ac.in thus candidates who are eagerly awaiting for the results can get it from this site.
There were over 13 lakh students who appeared for JEE Main of which only the top 1, 50,000 students were shortlisted for the JEE Advanced. The JEE advanced examination was conducted on 24th May 2015. .Following Admission to 20 IIT’s will be based on category –wise all India Rank in JEE Advanced.
After learning that fewer candidates will be able to cross the bar this year due to stringent negative marking and the ambiguous nature of the paper the JEE Advanced board have arrived at the conclusion to lower the qualifying marks criteria for the admissions. An official decision in this regard was taken in a meeting of the JEE Advanced board on Friday night 5 days before the results are scheduled to be announced on June 18th.
JEE Advanced 2015 Results
As per the recent decision to qualify for JEE Advanced a general category student will now have to secure a minimum of 7% marks in each of the 3 subjects separately with an aggregate of 24.5%.
“As the result compilation is in the final stages now, it emerged that the number of qualifiers could be less than the last year’s figure, so we decided to reduce the qualifying criteria,” said the chairman of the JEE (advance) without disclosing any more details about the discrepancy.
Turns out that this is the first time in the 3 years that the admission criteria had to be tweaked halfway during the process. Though the authorities claim and we quote that “The bar was revised in the past as well though people may not know about it as JEE (advanced) format was not in place.”
According to the revised rule the minimum aggregate qualifying marks for the candidates who belong to the general category are now 124 out of 504. The said candidate has to secure a minimum 12 marks in the 3 papers of Maths, Physics and Chemistry per se, after the addition of the marks of paper 1 and 2.
The IITs usually select twice the number of candidates as compared to the available seats so that no seat remains vacant. The reason is that many students who get admission in unpopular courses and in newer IITs often leave the seat and choose NITs and other ace institutes.
The Cutoff for JEE Advanced 2015, which will be announced along with JEE Advanced 2015 Result on June 18, will be the basis for admissions to the undergraduate engineering programs in 20 IITs and ISM Dhanbad.
The examination was conducted in two halves. Paper-1 was conducted from 9am to 12 pm and paper -2 was conducted from 2pm to 5 pm. This year they tweaked the paper patter and also had stringent and excessive negative marking which the students claimed to have hampered their performance.
Both the papers were supposed to carry 180 marks each but the paper pattern was altered without any intimation the result of which being that Paper-1 consisted of 262 questions and Paper-2 consisted of 240 questions. The whole unevenness of the paper baffled the students also they found that most of the questions under the Mathematics and Physics sections to be time consuming and/or highly ambiguous.
Another shocker for the candidates was the new negative marking scheme, under which 2 negative marks will be awarded for wrong answers. Due to this new update most students did not answer questions which they were unsure of leading to lower marks.
Once the results are officially declared the candidates who clear the cut-off can then appear for the Architecture Aptitude Test which will be held on June 21st and also fill the options from June 25th. The first round of seat allocation will be on July 1st.
