JEE Advanced 2013

Union Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal has finally got his way. The new Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) has been formally accepted by the IITs and various state boards for admission to the undergraduate programmes in Engineering in India. The CBSE too has made an official announcement that the JEE (Main) will replace the AIEEE exam and JEE (Advanced) will replace the IIT-JEE from 2013.

This Joint Entrance Exam (JEE 2013) will be conducted in 2 parts:

The JEE (Advanced) will be held on 2 June 2013 (only offline).

Only the top 1,50,000 candidates (including all categories) based on performance in JEE MAIN 2013 will qualify to appear in the JEE ADVANCED 2013 examination. The list of 1,50,000 qualified candidates (including all categories) of Paper-1 of JEE (Main) - 2013 will be available at the IIT Delhi website ( once the result is announced by CBSE. 

The candidates of JEE (Main) – 2013 who qualify to write JEE (Advanced) – 2013 have to register themselves online (between 8th May 2013 & 13th May 2013)

The following procedure will be used for selecting the 1,50,000 candidates who will be eligible to appear for JEE (Advanced)- 2013 based on their performance in JEE (Main) -2013.

  1. 50.5% of the 1,50,000 (75,750 candidates) will be taken from the top rankers of the Common Merit List (CML) of JEE (Main). 27% (40,500), 15% (22,500) and 7.5% (11,250) candidates will be taken from the top rankers of the category rank lists of OBC-NCL, SC and ST, respectively. The candidates figuring in the category rank lists will be those who do not figure in the 75,750 candidates chosen from the CML.
  2. 3% of the candidates selected within each category will be those belonging to PwD (Persons with Disability) sub-category, who figure in the respective rank lists of JEE (Main).
  3. Only the candidate’s aggregate marks in JEE (Main) will be considered and no tie-break mechanism will be implemented at this stage. This will make the list of candidates eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced)-2013 slightly more than 1,50,000 due to bunching of candidates with the same aggregate marks at the bottom of each category.

Admissions to the IITs & ISM, Dhanbad will be based only on the category-wise All India Rank (AIR) of an engineering aspirant in the JEE ADVANCED 2013 exam, subject to condition that such candidates are in the top 20 percentile categories of their respective class XII board or other qualifying examination. The percentile will vary from year to year and across the Boards.
