Counselling Eligibility 2021

Eligibility for JEE Advanced 2021 Counselling

Candidates who qualify JEE Advanced will be allowed to participate in JEE Advanced 2021 Counselling for admission to various UG courses offered by IITs. However, these candidates should fulfill the following eligibility criteria to take part in the counseling and seat allotment process.

  1. Candidates should have obtained a rank in the Common Rank List in JEE Advanced.
  2. The aggregate in the qualifying examination should not be less than 75% (65% for SC/ST/PwD) for the candidates. In the case of percentile, the candidate should be among the top 20 percentile in their respective board examination.
  3. The aggregate marks obtained in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Language (Language paper in which candidates have scored higher marks will be taken into consideration) will be used to calculate the aggregate in the qualifying examination. If any of these are not evaluated during the final year, (for eg. Three-year diploma courses) the marks of the previous year will be taken into consideration.
  4. Candidates who have failed in one or more than one subject in the qualifying exam should appear for the exam in 2021 and clear it in this attempt.
  5. In cases where the qualifying board offers only letter grades, the candidates are required to procure a letter from the board indicating the aggregate marks of the candidate. Otherwise, the decision in such matters will be taken by the Joint Implementation Committee of JEE Advanced 2021. The decision of the committee would be final and no request for any review would be considered.
  6. The marks of Class 12th would be considered only, in case, the board provides the marks for both Class 11th and 12th in the qualifying examination. If the board provides only the aggregate marks for qualifying examination, then the aggregate marks will be considered for evaluation.

How to check the status for seat allotment?

The candidates can follow the steps mentioned below to check the status of seat allotment during JEE Advanced 2021 Counselling. The opening and closing ranks for all the categories would vary. Hence, the candidates securing higher in their respective categories will be allotted seats accordingly.

  • Log in using the Registration No (User ID), JEE Advanced 2021 Roll No and Password to check their seat allotment status.
  • Students should check their status of Seat Allotment at the end of every round.
  • Allotments might change due to upgradation. Hence, students should pay attention to this.
  • The soft copy of the category (SC/ST/OBC-NCL) certificates uploaded at the time of online registration will be scrutinized against originals during seat allocation
  • If the certificates uploaded are found to be inappropriate, the student will be treated as General only if their score in the Paper-1 of JEE Main is above the cutoff score for General category.

Note: The seat allocation in JEE Advanced 2021 Counselling would be completed within three rounds. All the candidates are therefore advised to check the status after the completion of every round, as there is a possibility that the seats allotted to them are upgraded because other students have either withdrawn from the course or have accepted seats they prefer.

Step 4: Reporting for JEE Advanced 2021 Seat Allotment

Candidates are required to report to the Zonal IIT after the seats are allotted to them. All the candidates should be present in person for verification of documents and payment of admission fee. The seat acceptance fee for General and reserved categories are mentioned below.

In case, the applicants are offered an upgradation, they will have to forfeit the seat allotted to them earlier in order to accept the upgraded seat.

  • Candidates can pay the fee through any of the acceptable modes such as internet banking, credit card/debit card or payment in the nearest branch
  • They need to upload a declaration on acceptance form, after signing it themselves and by their parents.
