In normal instances, a student who has achieved a rank in the general category in JEE Advanced has to score a minimum of 75% or be a part of the top 20 percentile in the board result. Then only the student can be selected for a seat in the IIT. On the other hand, an SC or ST student must have over 65% and also be in the top 20 percentile in the board exams.

The ongoing pandemic has caused school examinations to be cancelled for CBSE and CISCE. The boards released evaluation models based on an average grade system and best performing subjects.

The chairpersons of the Joint Implementation Committee (JIC) were of the opinion that the criteria for admissions in 2020 should differ, the IITs would consider only the rank holders this year. The proposal has been sent to Joint Admission Board, the final approval is yet to come.
