Can IB students appear for the JEE Advanced 2022 exam?

 

IB stands for International Baccalaureate and is a highly respected international qualification. Students who have completed the IB program may be eligible to sit for the JEE Advanced exam, which is required for admission to engineering programs at many top universities in India.

To be eligible to take the JEE Advanced exam, students must first meet the minimum requirements set by the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs). These requirements include having a minimum score on the IB Diploma, as well as meeting other academic and age requirements.

Earlier, students were required to have at least 75% aggregate marks in Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics to appear for the JEE Main exam. But recently the National Testing Agency (NTA) has removed this criterion. 

 

Candidates who studied for their IB Diploma in India

 

If candidates from the IB board have cleared their 10+2 exam in India, they have to meet the eligibility criteria specified for Indian citizens, which are as follows:

  • They have to appear for the JEE Main exams. If they make it to the Top 2,50,000 successful candidates across categories, they can appear for the JEE Advanced 2022 exam.
  • Only those candidates who are born on or after October 1, 1997, can sit for the JEE Advanced 2022 exam. SC, ST, and PwD category students born or after October 1, 1992, can also sit for the exam.
  • Candidates can appear for the JEE Advanced exam twice - in two consecutive years.
  • Candidates must sit for the Class 12 exam in 2021 or 2022 for the first time. However, candidates whose Class 12 result was declared on or after October 15, 2020, can also sit for the exam - as a special measure this year due to the pandemic situation.
  • Candidates who got an IIT seat earlier and did not withdraw before the final round of counseling are not allowed to sit for JEE Advanced exam ever again.

 

PIOs, OCIs, and Foreign Nationals who studied abroad

 

IB diploma graduates who have studied or are studying abroad have to meet the eligibility criteria specified for OCIs (Overseas Citizens of India), PIOs (Persons of Indian Origin), and foreign nationals.

They can appear directly for the JEE Advanced 2022 exam if they have appeared for their 10+2 exam in 2021 or 2022 for the first time.
