JEE Main Exam 2023 75% Marks eligibility criteria in 12th Class

JEE Main 2023: In the 2023 JEE brochure, the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) brought back the eligibility criteria of 75 per cent marks in Class 12 board exams for admission to NITs, IIITs, and CFTIs.

The hearing on the removal of JEE Main’s 75 percent eligibility requirement has been postponed by the Bombay High Court until April 6.

A petitioner had asked the NTA to remove the requirement, arguing that a student’s marks do not necessarily reflect their true ability.

They claimed that students who scored less than 75 percent on this year’s exam could still score well on the JEE Main 2023.

The petitioner said that if these students were denied a fair chance, it could affect the future of many bright students. This was mentioned in a public interest litigation (PIL).

The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) have reinstated the requirement of having at least 75 percent marks in Class 12 board exams for admission to NITs, IIITs, and CFTIs in the 2023 JEE brochure.

JEE Main 2023

An early JEE Advanced brochure released by IIT Guwahati states that candidates must have secured at least 75 percent in their Class 12 board exams. For SC, ST, and PwD candidates, the aggregate marks must be at least 65 percent, or they should be among the top 20 percentile of successful candidates in their respective boards.

The top 20 percentile criterion was not previously included in the Main exam.

Some aspirants have expressed concern that candidates who did not score at least 75 percent in their Class 12 exams, particularly those who are taking the entrance exams for the last time, will be left out.

    What will happen to his future??? Will he commit suicide as he is definitely a very good student? Please give a thought and save such student.
    Note- JEE-Advance is a highest degree exam which should not be linked with any exam.

  3. Jee aspirants work very hard for the all india level test .world wide many universities accept 60 % average is enough to apply for graduation 75 % is not a fair thing for somany students so the court should be consider to adjust the 75% criteria

    • I agree with you. At one end PM Modiji wants to reduce the tension of Student and on the contrary these institutions while Overruling it have reimplemented 75% criteria again. Such criteria is not there even in Civil Services exam conducted by UPSC.

  4. India is a hopeless country. It’s education system is useless, puts unnecessary strain on students. The political system is full of illiterates. Better to leave India if anyone really wants to get good education.
