The qualifying marks for JEE Advanced 2015 have been revised. The cut-off marks for qualifying in the exam had been released earlier this month. The authorities have taken the decision to revise the qualifying marks after taking into consideration the overall performance of the candidates.
The total marks in all three subjects, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry, will be the combined marks of the respective subjects awarded in Paper I and Paper II. The aggregate marks will be calculated as the sum of marks obtained in all three subjects.
Only those students who score the minimum required marks for both, aggregate cut-off list and subject wise cut-off, will make it to the rank list. The candidates who get higher aggregate ranks will be awarded the higher rank.
If two or more candidates have the same aggregate marks and there is a tie in the ranks, then the higher rank will be given to the student who has higher marks in the Mathematics section. However, if the candidates happen to have the same aggregate marks as well as in Mathematics, then the candidate with higher marks in Physics will be assigned the higher rank. Lastly, in a situation where candidates have the same marks in all three, i.e. aggregate marks, Mathematics and Physics section, then they will be awarded the same rank.
The detailed lists for minimum percentage of marks, cut-off marks, preparatory courses can be viewed at the official site. The category-wise cut-off (General, OBC, SC, ST, PwD) is also mentioned online.
The ORS images and scanned copies were also published online on June 3; and the answer keys were made available on June 8.
