New Delhi: Due to the partial cancellation of class XII exams by several Boards, Joint Admission Board (JAB) has decided to relax the eligibility criterion for #JEE (Advanced) 2020 qualified candidates this time. Qualified candidates who have passed class XII examinations will now be eligible for admissions irrespective of marks obtained.
For admissions to IITs, apart from qualifying the JEE (Advanced), the eligibility was to secure either minimum score of 75% marks in class XII Board exams or rank among the top 20 percentile in their qualifying examinations.
In a twitter message, Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank , Union HRD Minister, informed that the decision by JAB is taken considering the COVID 19 Pandemic.
This appears to a big relief to aspirants who are preparing to appear JEE Advanced 2020.
