IIT Exam 2010 Counselling | IIT Exam Admission | IIT JEE 2010 | IITJEE

1. Counselling

The details of courses available in participating institutes are given in APPENDIX-7. Some institutes may offer new courses not listed in the appendix. Information regarding these courses will be available at the time of counselling.

The seats in various courses of the institutes (IITs, IT-BHU and ISM Dhanbad) are allotted strictly on the basis of the AIR, category rank, and the choices of each qualified student submitted either On-line or Off-line at the time of counselling.

The details of the counselling and admission procedure will be published in the JEE websites and in the Counselling Brochure.

The results of JEE are also being used by other institutions for admissions to their courses / programmes. The names of these institutions will be published in the JEE website at a later date. Therefore JEE provides performance data for these institutions. Candidates should contact these institutions directly for admission.

2. Physical Fitness

Candidates who qualify in JEE-2010 will have to submit a physical fitness certificate from a registered medical practitioner in the prescribed format that will be made available at an appropriate time. Candidates will be admitted only if they are physically fit for pursuing a course of study at the participating institutes.

3. Requirements for Mining courses

Those who opt for Mining Engineering and Mining Machinery courses should make sure that they do not have any form of colour blindness. They will be required to submit a certificate from a registered medical practitioner to this effect at the time of counselling/admission. The standards of visual acuity with or without glasses will be adhered to strictly for candidates seeking admission to Mining Engineering as per DGMS Circular 14 of 1972. Persons with one-eyed vision are not permitted to work underground. Candidates with the above limitations are not allowed to opt for admission to Mining Engineering or Mining Machinery Engineering.

4. Female candidates for Mining courses

Section 46 (1) of the Mines Act, 1952 states that “No woman shall, notwithstanding anything contained in any other law, be employed (a) in any part of a mine which is below ground, (b) in any mine above ground except between the hours 6 a.m. and 7 p.m.”. Hence, female candidates are not admitted to Mining Engineering and Mining Machinery Engineering at ISM, Dhanbad, whereas the corresponding programmes at IIT Kharagpur and IT-BHU, Varanasi, have no such restriction.

5. Aptitude test for B. Arch. and B. Des.

Candidates desirous of joining the B. Arch. (Architecture) and B. Des. (Design) courses will be required to qualify in an aptitude test to be conducted at each counselling institute on June 10, 2010.

The test will consist of one paper of three hours duration from 09.00 AM to 12.00 noon. Candidates have to qualify in the Aptitude Test to become eligible for admission to either B. Arch. or B. Des. courses. Question papers for aptitude test for B. Arch. and B. Des. will be in English only.

Candidates can register for this Aptitude test On-line after May 26, 2010. They must appear for the test on June 10, 2010 at the institutes where counselling will be held.

IIT Exam 2010 Results | IIT Exam Results | IIT JEE 2010 Results | IITJEE

1. Performance in JEE-2010

The answer paper of JEE-2010 is a machine-gradable Optical Response Sheet (ORS). These sheets are scrutinized and graded with extreme care after the examination. There is NO provision for re-grading and re-totalling. No photocopies of the machine-gradable sheets will be made available. No correspondence in this regard will be entertained.

Candidates will get to know their All India Ranks (AIR) / Category ranks through our websites/SMS/IVRS on

May 26, 2010.

Candidates can view their performance in JEE-2010 from JEE websites from June 3, 2010.

2. Ranking Only those candidates who attempted both Paper-I and Paper-II will be considered for the ranking. Marks in Chemistry in JEE will be equal to marks in Chemistry section of Paper-I plus marks in Chemistry section of Paper-II. Similar procedure will be followed for Mathematics and Physics. The sum of the marks obtained

in the individual subjects in JEE will be the aggregate mark for the candidate. The average of the marks scored by all such candidates

will be computed for each of the three subjects. These will be the Minimum Qualifying Marks for Ranking (MQMR) in the individual subjects.

Based on the MQMR in the individual subjects as well as the aggregate marks in the examination, a Common Merit List (CML) will be prepared without any relaxed criteria, such that the number of candidates in this list is equal to the total number of seats available in all the participating institutes put together. The aggregate marks scored by the last candidate in the CML will be the CML cut-off score (CCS).

Next, the merit list of the OBC candidates will be prepared. If the number of OBC candidates in the CML is equal to or more than 1.4 times the number of available OBC seats, then the OBC merit list will contain all these candidates.

In case the number of OBC candidates qualified in the CML is less than 1.4 times the number of available OBC seats, then relaxation (maximum of 10%) to the individual MQMR as well as to the CCS will be applied, and an OBC merit list will be prepared, in which the number of candidates will be at most 1.4 times the number of available OBC seats.

By applying 50% relaxation to the individual MQMR as well as to the CCS, separate merit list for SC, ST and PD candidates will be prepared. The number of candidates in each of these lists will be, at most 1.4 times the number of available seats in the respective categories.

While preparing the merit lists, if a candidate belongs to more than one category/ subcategory of relaxed norms, then he/she for the purpose of ranking shall be considered in all the categories in which he/she qualifies.

There will be no separate waiting list for candidates.

3. Tie-break

The tie-break criterion in the CML and category lists adopted for awarding ranks to the candidates who have scored the same aggregate marks is as follows:

For each subject, the average marks will be calculated on the basis of the marks obtained by those candidates who have scored more than or equal to MQMR in that subject.

Among the candidates having the same aggregate marks, a candidate will be ranked higher than the rest, if he/she has scored higher marks in the subject having the lowest average marks calculated as above. If there is a tie after this procedure, then the marks obtained by the tied candidates in the subject with the second-lowest average marks will be considered, and the above procedure will be repeated. Candidates tied even after this procedure will be given the same rank.

4. Preparatory course

A further relaxation of 50% is given based on the aggregate mark of the last candidate in the SC, ST and PD category merit lists. Separate preparatory course lists will be prepared for SC, ST and PD by including the candidates meeting this further relaxation. The number of candidates in these lists will be limited to 1.5 times the number of seats remaining vacant after exhausting the

respective categories.
