JEE Main 2016 Cutoffs

CBSE set some cutoff standards for students for college entrances. This year’s cutoffs are going to be very similar to the last two year’s cutoffs, but any changes will be further edited.

JEE exams have always been in the Multiple Choice Questions Format. Multiple Choice answer marking is a little time consuming and if one marks it untidily or without following proper instructions can lose a mark and get negatively marked for the same question even though the student knew the right answer to the question. So students must know that they have properly darkened the circle to the right answer, neatly with a pencil or they might have to suffer the consequences to it. This is really unnoticed and a very casually taken mistake that students do every year but somehow fail to learn from it again and again. The exams conducted in the institutions are not given much thought about when it comes to marking as the marking is done manually. But In Junior Entrance Examination, the parers are not marked manually but by some gadgets that have no sense to read anything else but as instructed.

2015 Cutoff Marks were:

  • For General category : 105
  • For OBCs                       :  70
  • For SCs                           : 53
  • For STs                            :47

2014 Cutoff Marks were:

  • For General Category :  115
  • For OBCs                        :  74
  • For SCs                           :  54
  • For STs                            :  47
