The Joint Entrance Examination or JEE main has been claimed as the most challenging examination held in engineering with regards to India. With the current increase in the number of students willing to put in significant effort and hard work into preparing for these competitive examinations, the difficulty of securing a seat in the critically acclaimed colleges of India like IITs (Indian Institute of Technology) and NITs (National Institute of Technology) has become significantly huge.
The importance of cut-off scores
It has become inevitable for any aspirant to work towards the score they wish to achieve with the intent of securing a spot in the renowned institutes, thereby securing their future as well.
To prepare more efficiently rather than just spending several hours toiling with books, it is necessary to thoroughly understand the functioning and processes by which the examinations and the system works. One of the basic things to know is the cut-off percentiles and scores.
For example, if a candidate intends to get into NIT Warangal, it is vital to keep track of the required trends like the NIT Warangal cut off percentile, deviations, and other factors. This will help in altering their preparations accordingly to gain maximum efficiency.
What is a Cut-off score?
For the JEE Main examination, the cut-off score is the minimum score expected to be acquired by a candidate to appear for the subsequent stage of the examination, which is the JEE Advanced.
A team of experts calculates these scores by considering several factors like the difficulty of the exam paper, the number of candidates who appeared for the examination, availability of seats in the institute, etc.
The cut-off scores for the JEE Main are released in two phases by the NTA or National Testing Agency which is responsible for the conduction and monitoring of all competitive and professional examinations held in the country.
The first one is the JEE Main Qualifying cut-off. This score forms the basis of determining the candidates eligible for the JEE Advanced examination, which is held shortly after the Main exam.
The second cut-off score is the JEE Main admission score, which is taken as the criteria for admitting students by a few IITs, NITs, several other participating government institutes, and private colleges that use the JEE scores as the eligibility factor.
