65,000 JEE Main Qualifiers Won’t Sit for JEE Adv.

This year, JEE Adv. has seen a 30% dropout rate. Around 65k students who cleared JEE Main 2018 have not registered for the Advanced. The qualifying scores in JEE Main dropped from 83 to 74 for Common Rank List as compared to last year, so that more candidates would be eligible for Advanced.

2.3 lakh candidates have qualified for JEE Advanced 2018, of which, 1.2 lakh boys of the 1.8 lakh who cleared Mains, have registered for Advanced. Of the 50,000 girls, 32,923 will appear for Advanced.

Out of 1.60 lakh applicants, 97,866 are from ST and OBC, while the rest (62,850) are from general category.

The reasons for skipping registration for Advanced can be:

  • A senior professor from IIT-Bombay said, “Many students are content with their JEE-Main score and choose to study in NITs instead of going through the gruelling process of getting through an IIT and a course of their choice,”.
  • Several candidates from general category, whose rank is beyond 40,000 in JEE Main don’t apply for Advanced because they have less than 10,000 seats to aim for.
  • Some students take JEE Main as the backup plan and choose undergraduate engineering course at foreign universities.
