JEE Main is one of the most competitive and important examinations for the students who want to take admission into the engineering and architecture programs offered by various IIITs, NITs, GFTIs, and various top Institutes at the undergraduate level. JEE Main is also an Eligibility test for JEE Advanced, through which candidates can seek admission to the engineering programs offered by IITs/ISM.

Recent Changes in B.Arch Eligibility

NTA released a notice about changes in the eligibility criteria for admission to B.Arch courses through JEE Main 2019.

The notification follows:
“No candidate shall be admitted to architecture course unless she/he has passed an examination at the end of the 10+2 scheme of examination with 50% marks in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics and also 50% marks in aggregate of the 10+2 examination”.

This change was made based on the recommendation of the Council of Architect. CoA is the regulating body for architecture admission in the country. CoA defines the guidelines for B.Arch admission which is to be followed by all the institutes and conducting bodies.

Therefore, all candidates need to have PCM as compulsory subjects in their 10+2 or equivalent exam, if they want to take admission in B.Arch courses. Candidates must also secure minimum 50% marks in each subject as well as aggregate.

Candidates will have need to wait until the official notice regarding the same is released.
