Selection Procedure of Top 1,50,000 Students for JEE Advanced.
Based on the performance in JEE Main, the students will be selected for JEE Advanced Exam by the given selection procedure.
50.5% of the 1,50,000 that is 75,750 students will be taken from the top rankers of the Common Merit List (CML) of JEE Main. 27% that is 40,500 students will be taken form top rankers of the OBC-NCL Category Merit List, 15% that is 22,500 students will be taken from top rankers of the SC Category Merit List and 7.5% that is 11,250 students will be taken from the top rankers of the ST category rank lists. The candidates figuring in the category rank lists will be those who do not figure in the 75,750 candidates chosen from the CML.
3% of the students 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.
