Cut Off Marks of IIT JEE Entrance Exam for year 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011
Every year lakhs of students aspire to get admission into one of the 16 prestigious
Indian Institutes of Technology - IITs. They have to appear for IIT-JEE (Joint Entrance
Examination) to be eligible to get admission in these institutes. A minimum cutoff
marks are calculated for the entrance examination and the students who have scored
above the cutoff marks are called for further rounds.
Cutoff marks are the minimum marks which a candidate must have scored in order to
get entry into the Indian Institutes of Technology - IITs. Earlier cutoff marks
varied from year to year as the cutoffs were worked out after calculating the average
of marks scored by all the candidates who wrote the exam. Students had to secure
minimum qualifying marks subject wise and in terms of total marks also. Minimum
qualifying marks were calculated as the average marks of all the students.
But the candidates who are planning to sit for IIT-JEE 2012 will have the freedom
to concentrate on questions of their choice and not worry about subject wise performance.
The Joint Admission Board (JAB) from the year 2012 has scraped the average formula
for calculating the cutoffs and will follow a new system.
According to the new system, general category students will have to score minimum
10% marks in each of the subject and 35% marks in aggregate to find a place on the
common rank list in Indian Institutes of Technology - IITs. OBC candidates have
to secure minimum 9% marks subject wise and 31.5% marks in aggregate. SC/ST candidates
have to secure minimum 5% marks subject wise and 17.5% marks in aggregate scores.
This system will give an advantage to the students. They can work towards scoring
minimum qualifying marks in the subject in which they are weak and then work on
