IIT JEE Main Exam

As the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2020 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 to the responsibilities of conducting the JEE Main exam and declaring the result. NTA is administering the JEE Main exam twice a year from 2019-20 academic year. National Testing Agency has conducted the exam in January between 6th and 11th and the April session exam will be held from 18th to 23rd July 2020. Earlier, it was to be held on 5th, 7th, 9th, and 11th 2020. However, the same has been postponed due to the COVID-19 situation.

JEE Main Cut-off 2020

Most students fail to understand the JEE Main 2020 cut-off concept. There are two categories or types – the qualifying cut-off and the admission cut-off. The JEE Main qualifying cut-off 2020 (for JEE Advanced) will be released by National Testing Agency (earlier, by CBSE), whereas the JEE Main admission cut-off 2020 (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 2020 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.

What is the Opening and Closing rank?

Opening rank is the rank at which the institutes take admission while Closing rank is the rank till which the institutes take admission. For example, let’s take NIT Rourkela cut-off or ranking, the opening rank is 4,256 and the closing rank is 43,617. This means the institute has started taking admission from rank 4,256 and the last admission was taken for the rank 43, 617. In other words, candidates with ranks less than 4,256 and more than 43,617 didn’t get admission in NIT Rourkela.
