Which Factors Determine Cut off

  • Total number of students who applied for JEE Advanced 2018: With the increasing number of students, cut-off marks will increase proportionally.
  • Total number of questions in the JEE Advanced Paper: This factor works inversely with the cut-off marks. When the total number of questions increases, the variance of attempted questions also increases, across all the candidates who attempted the exam. This reduces the cut-off marks, although not by much. The increasing competition has reduced the influence of this factor to a minimal.
  • The level of difficulty of the examination: The level of difficulty also plays a vital role in the determination of cut-off. The higher the difficulty of the exam, the lower will be the cut-off.
  • Performance of the candidates in the test: This is the most obvious factor in the determination of the cut-off marks.
  • JEE Advanced previous years’ cut-off trends: The cut-off marks of every year will also follow the trend of the previous years. Regardless of all the above factors, the cut-off marks for any year will never be too far from the cut-off marks of the previous year.
