Rank Lists - JEE Advanced 2016

 

 

Only candidates who appear in both Paper 1 and Paper 2 will be considered for ranking.

The marks obtained by a candidate in Physics in JEE (Advanced) 2016 will be equal to the marks scored in Physics part of Paper 1 plus the marks scored in Physics part of Paper 2. Marks obtained in Chemistry and Mathematics will be calculated in the same way.

The aggregate marks obtained by a candidate in JEE (Advanced) 2016 is the sum of the marks awarded to him/her in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.

Rank lists will be prepared based on the aggregate marks in JEE (Advanced) 2016.

If the aggregate marks scored by two or more candidates are same, then the following tie-break policy will be used for awarding ranks:

Higher rank will be assigned to the candidate who has obtained higher marks in Mathematics. If this does not break the tie, higher rank will be assigned to the candidate who has obtained higher marks in Physics. If there is a tie even after this, candidates will be assigned the same rank.

Rank lists for preparatory courses (see Preparatory Courses ) will be prepared for SC, ST candidates and PwD candidates in all categories who satisfy the prescribed relaxed criteria given below.

A candidate who qualifies in more than one category will be considered in all the categories to which he/she belongs for the purpose of ranking.

There will be no waiting list for ranking.

Only candidates who score the minimum prescribed marks in each subject and in aggregate will be included in the rank list. The minimum prescribed marks varies with the category. These are as shown in the following table.

Rank ListMinimum percentage of marks in each subjectMinimum percentage of aggregate marks
Common rank list (CRL) 10.0 35.0
OBC-NCL rank list 9.0 31.5
SC rank list 5.0 17.5
ST rank list 5.0 17.5
Common-PwD rank list (CRL-PwD) 5.0 17.5
OBC-NCL-PwD rank list 5.0 17.5
SC-PwD rank list 5.0 17.5
ST-PwD rank list 5.0 17.5
Preparatory course rank lists 2.5 8.75

NB: 1. CRL is the rank list in which all candidates (across all categories) will be given ranks.

       2. Individual rank cards will NOT be sent to candidates. 

       3. Obtaining a rank in JEE (Advanced) 2016 does not guarantee admission to IITs or ISM.

Ministry Also Plans To Raise 20 Schools To Global Standard Engineering colleges across the country may go the NEET way.

TimesofIndia.com:  The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), which governs engineering colleges, is contemplating making JEE-Main the single entrance test for undergraduate BE courses.

At present, the Central Board of Secondary Education conducts JEE-Main for admissions to the premier IITs, National Institutes of Technology, Indian Institute of Information Technology and other centrally funded institutes.

AICTE chairman Anil D Sahasrabudhe told TOI on Tuesday some states are currently using JEE-Main as the entrance test to fill engineering seats in state colleges.“We are planning to make JEE-Main the single entrance test in the country. JEE-Main is based on the CBSE syllabus and different states are following different syllabi; so having a single entrance test for engineering is still in the planning stage.“

Like medical admissions, students end up writing multiple entrance tests for engineering courses too. Students in Karnataka write at least four entrance tests - CET, ComedK, JEE and entrance to various deemed universities.

Sahasrabudhe said AICTE panel will visit engineering colleges with a lack of infrastructure, low student strength, lack of faculty and equipment.If flaws are found, such colleges will be shut down.

“Some colleges approach us to shut due to poor student strength; we have eased this process also. Earlier, we were collecting Rs 3 lakh to approve closure of such colleges, now it's cut to Rs 50,000. As per the new rule, the intake capacity of seats in engineering colleges, which don't have accreditation from the National Board of Accreditation (NBA), will not be increased, and AICTE will increase the intake capacity of engineering colleges which have NBA accreditation,“ he said.

At present, 15% of colleges have NBA accreditation. Since not a single Indian engineering institute is among the top 100 institutes in the world, the HRD ministry has taken up a new initiative.

Sahasrabudhe said the MHRD will identify 10 good private institutes and 10 government institutes, and provide funds and give freedom to improve aspects to become one among the top100 institutes globally .
