Only those candidates, who would have written both Paper 1 and Paper 2, will be considered for the ranking. Marks in Physics in JEE (Advanced)-2014 will be equal to marks in Physics part of Paper 1 plus marks in Physics part of Paper 2. Similar procedure will be followed for Chemistry and Mathematics. The sum of the marks obtained in the individual subjects in JEE (Advanced)-2014 will be the aggregate marks for the candidate.
Based on the performance in JEE (Advanced)-2014, a common merit list will be prepared. Candidates must score at least 10% in each subject and 35% in aggregate in order to be in the common merit list.
Separate merit lists will be prepared corresponding to OBC (NCL), SC and ST categories.
Candidates of OBC (NCL) category must score at least 9% in each subject and 31.5% in aggregate in order to be in the OBC (NCL) merit list.
Candidates of SC and ST categories must score at least 5% in each subject and 17.5% in aggregate in order to be in their respective merit lists.
PwD Merit Lists
Separate PwD merit lists will be prepared corresponding to the GE, OBC (NCL), SC and ST categories. To be in these merit lists, candidates must score at least 5% in each subject and 17.5% in aggregate.
Preparatory Course Merit Lists
Separate merit lists will be prepared for preparatory courses only if the number of SC/ST/PwD candidates in the respective merit lists is less than 1.4 times the number of seats available in the respective categories. To be in these merit lists, candidates must score at least 2.5% in each subject and 8.75% in aggregate. If a candidate qualifies in more than one category under relaxed norms, then he/she for the purpose of ranking shall be considered in all the categories in which he/she belongs. There will be no separate waiting list for candidates.
The tie-break policy in the various merit lists adopted for awarding ranks to the candidates who have scored the same aggregate marks is as follows: Higher rank will be assigned for higher marks in Mathematics, followed by marks in Physics and Chemistry. Candidates securing same marks in all these three subjects will be assigned the same rank.
Note: Obtaining a rank in JEE (Advanced)-2014 does not guarantee admission to any of the courses available at IITs, and ISM Dhanbad.
