JEE Main 2019 Cut Off

The JEE Main is conducted twice, annually. They are a vital stepping stone for engineering aspirants wishing to pursue their higher education in the nation’s top Engineering and Technical Colleges. Though the primary method and procedure of JEE Main is the same, some years they announce a few changes. Like this year, the JEE Main exams cut-off marks are being released by the National Testing Agency (NTA) instead of the CBSE. In addition, the exam itself will be conducted online.  

The JEE Main 2019 cut-off marks, to be released on April 30, 2019, can be viewed by logging onto the exam portal using your application number and password. These cut off marks will be published online according to the category to make it easier.

The qualifying JEE Main cut-off mark is the minimum score you need to achieve to be eligible for the JEE Advanced exam. It will also offer an insight into which college you can aspire to study at. The JoSAA cut off, however, will inform you if you have managed to acquire a seat in your selected college.

JEE Main Expected cut off 2019

Each year the cut off for the JEE Main is calculated based on five basic factors.

These are:

  • The total number of candidates appearing in the entrance exam
  • The total number of available seats
  • The total number of applications received for the program for which a candidate has sought admission
  • The difficulty level of the examination
  • The category under which the admission is being sought

According to authoritative sources, this year’s JEE Main cut-off is forecasted to be a bit higher than in the past years. But that remains to be seen.

An analysis of the JEE Main qualifying cutoffs over the past few years, throws up certain data. It has been noticed by analytical experts that there has been a considerable drop in the cutoff marks from 2013 to 2018. In these five years, the cutoff number dropped from 113 to 74.

The reason for this has been addressed, and the following scenario may have led to this dramatic drop:

  1. Entrance exams are getting tougher, and competition is increasing
  2. A bigger number of candidates are being included in the qualifying list. For JEE Main 2018, the number of students jumped from 2,24, 000 to 2, 31, 025.
  3. The average success rate of candidates is getting lower
  4. Students attending coaching institutes are appearing at the top
