The Rank Predictor for JEE Main 2015 is a simple-to-use tool that helps IIT aspirants gauge their probable rank before the result date of JEE Main 2015. To calculate the probable JEE Main rank, candidates need to know their 2015 JEE Main score. The rank can then be calculated using the Answer Key.

Branch Predictor:

To gauge their possible branch in advance, candidates can use the Branch Predictor tool. Firstly, candidates need to select a preferred branch.

Through the Branch Predictor, candidates can have a better understanding of the probable branch.

How Many Marks Needed in JEE Main 2015 to Gain Admission Into a Good College?

Students who appear for JEE Main or any other engineering entrance examination want to know the number of marks needed to secure admission into a reputable engineering college. To answer this question, one needs to keep in mind the following facts.

  • For JEE Advanced eligibility, candidates should be among the top 1.5 lakh candidates who have cleared JEE Main 2015.

  • The All India Rank (AIR) for JEE Main 2015 is determined by taking into consideration scores obtained in JEE Main 2015 (which is given 60% weightage) and performance in Class XII Board Exams (which is given 40% weightage). The AIR will finally determine whether you gain admission into an IIT.

  • An excellent engineering college could mean IITs for one student, NITs for some, or a specific college that offers a special branch of science of technology for others. With each college having different cutoffs, candidates need to analyze the previous year cut-offs to gauge their chances of admission in each college.
