According to an official, students must secure 75% marks or be in top 20 percentile in class 12 examination so as to qualify for appearing in the exam. The SC, ST students must get 65 per cent marks. All other JEE examination systems should remain unchanged.

The percentages of various categories are as follows:
- 7.5 per cent for ST
- 50.5 per cent is open for all

Inside each of these four categories, 3 per cent straight reservation is available for PwD (including dyslexic) candidates.
