JEE Advanced 2019 Common Merit List


Merit ListIt is a common tendency of students to wait for the merit list to be published as soon as the exams are over; irrespective of the fact whether they are entrance exam or school exams. Well, it is quite natural as students would like to see their name in the merit list and get a proud feeling; especially, when the students are awaiting for the results or the merit list of tough entrance exams such as JEE Advanced. But, for this they need to wait as it is usually declared within 30-45 days of the exams.

While talking about the JEE Advanced 2019 common merit list, I can sense that students are already getting anxiety shocks about the results. But, then this is not the time to get nervous about the result, instead they should try and understand how the merit list is premeditated and the results are declared.

Following steps are taken into considered when the JEE Advanced Merit List is being created:

  • Students those who have appeared for both, that is JEE Main and JEE Advanced are taken into consideration for the merit list.

  • The rank or the marks that are obtained by the students are aggregate of the total of marks obtained in Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry.

  • The marks in particular subject will be calculated on the basis of the marks obtained in both the papers; paper 1 and paper 2.

  • The common merit list is prepared on the basis of the aggregate score in JEE Advanced.

  • In case there is a tie between two students (those who have scored the same total score), then the student who has obtained higher score in Mathematics will be given preference. If even this does not work, then the preference will be given to the one who has scored higher marks in Physics. And at last if even that does not work, then the preference will be given to the one with maximum score in Chemistry.

If in case the marks obtained in all three subjects are same, then the students will score the same rank.

  • To be part of Common Merit List, students should score minimum of 10% in each subject and minimum aggregate should be 35%.

  • Usually, different merit lists are prepared for General, OBC and Backward classes. Students falling in OBC category should score lowest 9% in each subject and minimum aggregate of 31.5%; to be able to make OBC Merit List. For SC and ST classes students should obtain 5% in each subject and at least 17.5% as aggregate score to able to make it to SC and ST Merit List.

  • If in case a student falls in multiple categories of relaxation, then the student’s name will be added to the list in which he or she qualifies.

  • For the merit list there is no waiting list for ranking.

Students need to understand one more thing very clearly that even if they make it to the merit list, does not ensure or guarantee their admission to desired college or branch. The admission solely depends on their performance, documents and counselling. I, along with the entire team of askiitians wish all the students a very best for their future!!
