The Indian Institute of Technology took this step after the directions of the HRD Ministry to release a supplementary merit list for admission. On 10th June, the JEE Advanced results were declared, which saw a total of 18,138 candidates cracked the exam.

How to Check If Candidates Have Qualified or Not?

Since IIT Kanpur has released the extended merit list for IIT JEE Advanced 2018, candidates now need to visit the official website of Joint Entrance Examination Advanced at jeeadv.ac.in to check whether they have made it to the list or not. Here’s what candidates should do to check their names on the list –

  • Visit https://www.jeeadv.ac.in/
  • Click on the ‘Extended List of JEE (Advanced) 2018 Qualified Candidates Released’ link
  • A new page will display. It says ‘JEE (Advanced) 2018 – Result Portal
  • Here, candidates need to provide certain details like Registration No., Date of Birth, Mobile No. and Email Address to ‘sign in’
  • As you sign into the page, you will be able to see the results

Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar tweeted, “Responding to requests from students and IIT community to proactively ensure that all reservation seats are duly filled, I have directed @IIT Kanpur conducting JEE advanced to make available candidates, strictly as per merit, twice the number of seats in each category ... if necessary by releasing a supplementary list”

Unlike the previous years’ trends where the number of students who make it to the list has always been double (twice) the number of seats on offer. It was an exception this year since 2012. The number of students is now eligible after the release of the extended merit list as decided by the Joint Admission Board
