JEE Main Cut-off Scores for NITs & Other Institutes for Admissions

Published on : 6th December 2018
IIT JEE Main Exam

As the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2019 is scheduled to be organised two times a year, one would get updates about the JEE Main cut-off scores twice, but separately. The Central Board of Secondary Education is no longer entitled with the responsibilities of conducting the JEE Main exam and declaring the result. NTA will administer the JEE Main exam twice a year from 2019-20 academic year. National Testing Agency will regulate the exam in January (between 6th and 20th) and April (between 6th and 20th) and will eventually declare the results along with the cut-offs.

JEE Main Cut-off 2019

Most students fail to understand the JEE Main 2019 cut-off concept. There are two categories or types – the qualifying cut-off and the admission cut-off. The JEE Main qualifying cut-off 2019 (for JEE Advanced) will be released by National Testing Agency (earlier, by CBSE), whereas the JEE Main admission cut-off 2019 (participating institutes) will be regulated by Joint Seat Allocation Authority. Aspirants dreaming of getting into the best technical/ engineering colleges in the country must score the minimum cut-off marks.

The underneath table will help you understand the cut-off structure completely.

Major Factors to Determine JEE Main 2019 Cut-off

The most sought-after engineering entrance examination in the country, JEE Main is being taken up by more than 1 million aspirants every year. Since the number of the exam-takers is massive, the Authority takes several factors into consideration before declaring the cut-off marks to filter out the best. Some of the major factors that play a crucial role in determining the Joint Entrance Examination Main Cut-off are –

  • Total applications received for particular programmes in which candidates seek admissions in
  • Number of aspirants giving the test
  • Difficulty-level of the examination
  • Available seats
  • Category of candidates

Chances are that the cut-off would go up if the number of applications increases and seats are less. The cut-off would be different if the above-mentioned parameters show different numbers.

The JEE Main cut-off 2019 for NITs will be made accessible only after the declaration of results on 31st January (for January) and 30th April (for April).
