IITs will not lower cutoff for admission

PUBLISH DATE 14th June 2018

NEW DELHI: Despite a drastic fall in the number of candidates who cleared the 2018 JEE-Advanced, the examination authority decided on Wednesday not to lower the cutoff for admission to IITs.

“The concrete decision taken is there will be no lowering of cutoff. That has been agreed upon. Declared results can’t be changed,” Aditya Mittal, JEE chair of IITDelhi, said.

The joint admission board (JAB), comprising directors and top-ranking officials of IITs, had called an emergency meeting to address the likelihood of IIT seats going vacant this year.

Further action after ‘simulated selection process’

JAB sources said they will decide further action after conducting a “simulated selection process” on the basis of last year’s data to identify whether or not seats will go vacant this year.

According to a JAB member, the institutes will conduct simulated counselling to see whether there are enough aspirants to fill the 11,279 seats at the undergraduate level for the 2018-19 academic session. “Based on data available there shouldn’t be any vacancies,” he said.

While confirming that there will be no lowering of cutoff, a JAB member said, “We will simulate the selection process to get a sense of whether there may be vacancies this year.”

In all, 18,138 candidates cleared JEE-Advanced 2018, which is a seven-year low.Since 2013, the eligibility criteria were made so that the number of candidates was at least double the number of seats on offer. This year, however, it is only 1.6 times the total seats.
