    JEE Main 2019: Expected Qualifying Marks for JEE Advanced 2019

    To determine shortlisted candidates for JEE Advanced 2019, the JEE Main appearing candidates should score more than the minimum qualifying marks. Let’s know about the factors that will affect the JEE Main 2019 cut-off this year.

    1. Difficulty Level of Question Paper:

    The most important factor having an immediate effect on JEE Main cut off marks is level of difficulty in JEE Main question paper. Therefore, we can estimate if the level of difficulty for JEE Main is high then, the cut off marks will be low.  As per students feedback who appeared in January and April session, the the level of difficulty for JEE Main Question Paper 2019 is same as previous years.

    2. Number of Applicants for JEE Main:

    One of the biggest factors that affect the cut off marks of JEE Main is the number of students applying and appearing for the exam. An increased number of candidates for JEE Main can result in high cut off for the year and vice versa. As for JEE Main 2019, the number of applicants has decreased by 5-8% as compared to last year. Therefore, we can expecta fall in JEE Main cut off marks due to relatively less competition.

    3. Number of Candidates for JEE Advanced 2019:

    In order to implement the newly introduced 10 percent quota for students belonging to Economically Weaker Section (EWS) Category, approximately 25 per cent seats will be added to ensure that the reservation does not disturb the existing quota for SC, ST and other categories, as mentioned bythe Union HRD Minister Mr. PrakashJavdekar. As a result of this decision, the number of eligible candidates has been increased to 2, 45, 000. Last year, only 2.24 lakh candidates were eligible to appear for the next stage i.e., JEE Advanced. Therefore, due to increase in the number of candidates to be shortlisted for JEE Advanced, the cutoff marks of JEE Main can be low in comparison with last year.
