JEE Main 2022 Cutoffs: Qualifying Marks for Admission to Engineering Colleges

 

The National Testing Agency (NTA) is conducting the JEE Main 2022 in two sessions:

  • Session 1 is being conducted from June 23 to 29, 2022.
  • Session 2 is scheduled from July 21 to 30, 2022.

 

JEE Main 2022 cutoffs are not released yet! The NTA will release the JEE Main 2022 cutoffs after both the sessions are successfully conducted.

The JEE Main cutoff scores will be of two types:

  1. JEE Main 2022 Qualifying Cutoffs: The qualifying cutoff scores for JEE Main 2022 will determine whether a candidate is eligible to sit for the JEE Advanced exam or not.
    It will be released by the NTA and candidates can check it by logging in to the JEE Main result portal. JEE Main 2022 qualifying cutoffs are category-specific, which means that cutoff marks will be determined separately for General or Unreserved (UR) category students, Persons with Disabilities (PwD) in the General category students, students from Scheduled Castes (SC), students from Scheduled Tribes (ST), students from Other Backward Classes - Non-Creamy Layer (OBC - NCL), and students from Economically Weaker Sections (EWS).

  2. JEE Main 2022 Admission Cutoffs: The JEE Main 2022 admission cutoff scores will specify the minimum marks candidates require to obtain a seat in NITs (National Institutes of Technology), IIITs (Indian Institutes of Information Technology), and GFTIs (Government Funded Technical Institutes). 
    It will be released by the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JOSAA) and students can check the admission cutoffs on its official website. These cut-offs will be category-specific, institute-specific, and even branch-specific. So, if you are seeking admission to a specific engineering branch in a specific college, you should check the cutoff marks of that branch, institute, and category.

 

How are JEE Main cutoffs calculated?

 

For JEE Main 2022, the NTA will use a normalized score to calculate the cut-offs. This means that the final scores of candidates will be determined after taking into consideration several factors like the difficulty level of exam papers, the number of students who appeared in a particular session, and so on.

Factors Affecting JEE Main 2022 Cutoffs

Various factors can affect the JEE Main 2022 cutoff scores. Some of the important factors are given below:

  • The difficulty level of exam papers: If the paper is easy, more candidates will score high marks and as a result, the qualifying and admission cutoffs will be high. On the other hand, if the paper is tough, the cutoffs will be low.
  • The total number of candidates appearing in the exam: If the total number of candidates appearing in the exam is high, the qualifying and admission cutoffs will be high. However, if the total number of candidates is low, the cutoffs will be low.
  • The total number of candidates qualified for JEE Advanced: The total number of candidates qualified for JEE Advanced will also affect the JEE Main cutoff scores. If the number of qualifiers is low, the cutoffs will be high and vice versa.

The Opening Rank (OR) is the minimum rank required by a candidate to get admission into their choice of engineering college. The Closing Rank (CR) is the maximum rank required by a candidate to get admission into their choice of engineering college. Different colleges have different opening and closing ranks for each branch of engineering. The opening rank is also known as the first-round cutoff score. It is released by the JoSAA after each round of counseling and seat allotment.
