Eligibility Criteria

The Centre has also removed the criteria of a minimum of 75% marks given the COVID-19 pandemic for JEE advanced exam. In 2020, to appear for JEE Advanced, the candidates had to fit into all of these criteria (minus a year). If this is carried forward, here’s the eligibility criterion for JEE Advanced 2021.

First: Candidates should have compulsorily passed JEE Main 2021 (Paper 1). It is also necessary for them to be among the top 2,50,000 candidates

Second: For JEE Advanced 2021, the candidates should have been born on or after October 1, 1996. However, SC, ST and PwD candidates will get a relaxation of 5 years (born on or after October 1, 1991).

Third: Candidates can attempt JEE Advanced maximum two times in two consecutive years.

Fourth: All candidates should have qualified the 10+2 examination in 2020 or 2021 for the first time. However, if the result is declared for the academic year 2018-19 after June 2019, then the candidates of that board who appeared for their 12th standard qualifying exam in 2019 will also be termed eligible for JEE Advanced 2021 if they also meet the other eligibility criteria.
