  • Eligibility for JEE Main as a fresh candidate after exhausting earlier attempts


    Are you keen to appear for JEE Main exam as a fresh candidate after clearing Class 10 and 12 through NIOS? Find out if you are eligible for this prestigious exam after exhausting the permitted number of attempts earlier.

    I have exhausted all my JEE Main attempts. Now I have taken admissions to Class 10 NIOS again as a fresh candidate. I want to know if I will be eligible for JEE Mains with my new mark sheet for Class 10 and Class 12.

    I read some answers online for similar questions, and the experts said that JEE eligibility is counted from the year of passing 12th. So will I become eligible again? Please guide me.

  • According to the new guidelines formulated by the IIT authorities, there is no restriction of age as such and this rule would be applicable from 2023 onwards.
    According to the existing guideline, the following criteria is required-
    1) The aspirants should have passed both class ten or class twelve board from a recognised board and should have secured at least 75% marks in their class twelve board if they belong to General Candidates but for SC/ST candidates, they need to secure the minimum 65% marks.
    2) This is applicable to all candidates seeking admission to any of the institutions of IIT or NIT.
    3) There is no minimum or maximum age limit for the candidates.
    To be accommodated in IIT, you have taken fresh admission in class 10 NIOS and would attempt class 12 NIOS later so as to write your IIT.
    You need to follow threshold marking score set by IIT applicable to you.

  • New rule has been formulated for JEE Main 2023. NTA (National Testing Agency) has made many changes in eligiblity criteria. There is no age limit for this exam. Exam will be conducted twice in a year for January and April 2023 sessions. There are some eligiblity criteria which are as follows:-
    1.Candidates should be a citizen of India. Foreign national candidates, as well as NRIs, PIOs, and OCIs, can also apply.
    2 Students can avail a maximum of three consecutive attempts for JEE Main. The first attempt is taken soon after the Class 12 board exam, followed by the other attempts in consecutive years. The exam will be held twice a year, so the total number of attempts a candidate can appear for is 6.
    4. Candidates belonging to the general category, they must have secured a minimum of 75% marks in their Class 12 board exams, or they must rank among the top 20 percentile in their qualifying examination for getting admissions to IITs, NITs, IIITs and other CFTIs. Whereas, For candidates belonging to a reserved category, a minimum of 65% marks is required to get admission to different undergraduate courses offered at IITs, NITs, IIITs and other CFTIs.
    5. According to new guideline formulated by NTA, Candidates who have passed their Class 12 examination or any equivalent qualifying examination in 2021 or 2022 or those who are appearing for their Class 12 examination or any equivalent qualifying examination in 2023 are eligible to appear in JEE (Main) Examination.

    thank you Sheo Shankar Jha and dr sanchita ranjan for reply,i will elaborate my question.
    So i stand in both the eligibility points
    1. I have passed class 12th in 2020 so i am not eligible
    2. But i will be appearing for 12th again in 2025
    does that make me eligible again for the jee main exam which will be held in 2025?
    Also i have gone through entire information bulletin in official website there is no mention of total number of attempts, only year of passing 12th is taken into account as the eligibility criteria

    Lankesh,
    You have indicated in your previous posting that you have exhausted your chance for the reappearance in IIT on the basis of your Board in 2020 since you availed all the permitted attempts.
    With the fresh passing of your class twelve from the different Board in 2025, you would be permitted to write your papers in IIT according to their permitted chances.
    So, you may take chances for reappearance in the IIT Examination after passing the current Board, but the only setback to such attempts is the loss of your academic career for at least five years.
    In this regard, you are the best judge how you should move in your career path.
