About JEE Advanced Examination
The Joint Entrance Examination (Advanced) 2018 [JEE (Advanced) 2018] will be conducted by the seven Zonal Coordinating (ZC) IITs under the guidance of the Joint Admission Board (JAB) 2018. The performance of a candidate in this examination will form the basis for admission to the Bachelor’s, Integrated Master’s and Dual Degree programs (entry at the 10+2 level) in all the IITs. The decisions of the JAB 2018 will be final in all matters related to JEE (Advanced) 2018 and admission to IITs.
All the candidates must fulfil each and every one of the following five criteria to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2018.
Criterion 1 – Performance in JEE (Main) 2018: Candidates should be among the top 2,24,000* (including all categories) in Paper-1 of JEE (Main) 2018.
The percentages of various categories of candidates to be shortlisted are: 27% for OBC-NCL, 15% for SC, 7.5% for ST and the remaining 50.5% is OPEN for all.
Within each of these four categories, 5% horizontal reservation is available for PwD candidates.
The following table show the order to be followed while choosing top 2,24,000* candidates in various categories based on the performance in Paper-1 of JEE (Main) 2018.
Category-wise distribution of top 2,24,000*candidates (Criterion 1) Order Category Number of “Top” Candidates 1 OPEN 1,07,464 Total: 1,13,120 2 OPEN-PwD 5,656 3 OBC-NCL 57,456 Total: 60,480 4 OBC-NCL-PwD 3,024 5 SC 31,920 Total: 33,600 6 SC-PwD 1,680 7 ST 15,960 Total: 16,800 8 ST-PwD 840

Criterion 2 – Age limit: Candidates should have been born on or after October 1, 1993. Five years relaxation is given to SC, ST and PwD candidates, i.e., these candidates should have been born on or after October 1, 1988.

Criterion 4 – Appearance in Class XII (or equivalent) examination: A candidate should have appeared for the Class XII (or equivalent) examination for the first time in either 2017 or 2018.
However, if the examination Board of Class XII (or equivalent) declares the results for the academic year 2015-16 after June 2016, then the candidates of that board who appeared for their class XII exam in 2016 are also eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2018, provided they meet the other eligibility criteria. In case, the examination Board of Class XII (or equivalent) declared the results for the academic year 2015-16 before June 2016 but the result of a particular candidate was withheld, then the candidate will not be eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2018.

Candidates whose admission at IITs was cancelled after joining any IIT are also NOT eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2018.
Candidates who have been admitted to a preparatory course in any of the IITs for the first time in 2017 can appear in JEE (Advanced) 2018.
The candidates who paid seat acceptance fee in 2017 but (i) did not report at any reporting centre OR, (ii) withdrew before the last round of seat allotment, OR, (iii) had their seat cancelled (for whatever reason) before the last round of seat allotment for IITs, during the joint seat allocation in 2017, are eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2018.

Result and Ranklist
Results of JEE (Advanced)
• Results will be declared on Sunday, June 10, 2018 10:00 IST. Category-wise All India Ranks (AIR) of successful candidates will be available through the online portal after the results are declared. Text messages will also be sent to the candidates to their registered mobile numbers.
• Individual rank cards will NOT be sent to candidates.
• However, qualifying in JEE Advanced (2018), filling up choices and/or participating in the joint seat allocation process do not guarantee a candidate to get admission in IITs. Admission will depend on the availability of seats during various rounds of seat allocation.
• Only candidates who appear in both Paper 1 and Paper 2 will be considered for ranking.
• The marks obtained by a candidate in Physics in JEE (Advanced) 2018 will be equal to the marks scored in Physics part of Paper 1 plus the marks scored in Physics part of Paper 2. Marks obtained in Chemistry and Mathematics will be calculated in the same way.
• The aggregate marks obtained by a candidate in JEE (Advanced) 2018 is the sum of the marks awarded to him/her in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.
• Rank lists are prepared based on the aggregate marks in JEE (Advanced) 2018.
• If the aggregate marks scored by two or more candidates are the same, then the following tie-break policy will be used for awarding ranks:
Step 1: Candidates having higher positive marks will be awarded
higher rank. If the tie breaking criterion at Step 1 fails to break the tie, then the following criterion at Step 2 will be followed.
Step 2: Higher rank will be assigned to the candidate who has
obtained higher marks in Mathematics. If this does not break the tie, higher rank will be assigned to the candidate who has obtained higher marks in Physics. If there is a tie even after this, candidates will be assigned the same rank.
• Rank lists for preparatory courses (see section 28. PREPARATORY COURSES) will be prepared for SC, ST, and PwD candidates in all categories who satisfy the prescribed relaxed criteria given below.
• A candidate who qualifies in more than one category will be considered in all the categories to which he/she belongs for the purpose of ranking.
• There will be no waiting list for ranking.
• Only candidates who score the minimum prescribed marks in each subject and in aggregate will be included in the rank list. The minimum prescribed marks varies with the category as shown in the following table.
