JEE Main 2018 Cut Off and Analysis By FIITJEE

11 Apr, 2018

JEE Main 2018 cut off and analysis by FIITJEE has been released and made available as the JEE Main 2018 offline exam has been conducted. The expected cutoff for JEE Main 2018 by FIITJEE is given by the experts. JEE Main 2018 Cutoff by FIITJEE is the tentative minimum marks required for admissions to various government, non-government colleges for engineering and architecture, like National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) and Government-funded Technical Institutes (GFTIs). The Cutoff of JEE Main 2018 by FIITJEE is also the expected score required to appear in JEE Advanced exam for the candidates, which is the second stage of JEE for admissions to Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs).

Apart from the FIITJEE coaching institute, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will also release the official Cutoff for JEE Main 2018 along with the final result of the exam. Remember, the candidates who will secure marks lower than the Cutoff marks of JEE Main 2018, will not be eligible for the admissions. FIITJEE has also released the exam analysis for JEE Main 2018 exam.

    Stay tuned to Getentrance and check out the JEE Main 2018 cutoff and analysis by FIIT JEE.

    NOTE- The JEE Main 2018 cutoff and analysis by FIIT JEE is not final and should not be treated as official response. The cutoff from CBSE as well as the analysis from the experts will be released in the last week of April.
