Provided below is the expected cut off which has been averaged out. Most of the experts feel that the JEE Main 2018 cut off for JEE Advanced 2018 would dip this year.
The experts maintain that the difficulty level of the JEE Main question paper in comparison to the previous two years has remained the same. Many feel that cut off for the examination is likely to dip this year further. The reason, as quoted by many is not related to the difficult level of the question paper but more to the increased number of candidates likely to be shortlisted this year for JEE Advanced. Nearly 2,24,000 candidates would be shortlisted this year for JEE Advanced. The institutes this year are also required to prepare a supernumerary list of girl students. This clause has further increased the seats by about 700 across the IITs. As such, the number of students that are shortlisted may increase marginally further. Accordingly, the expected cut off is expected to dip. Here is the expected cut off along with the tentative number of students that would be shortlisted for JEE Advanced 2018. Please note, this cut off is only tentative and subject to change. JEE Main 2018 would also be conducted on April 15 and 16, which may further affect the cut off. The figures are shared by experts and based on their understanding of the difficulty level and past trends.
Please note that the number of students given is tentative. As in, candidates who fall in the ranks provided above would also be shortlisted. For instance, there are 7 candidates with the same rank, the number may accordingly increase. This difference, however, is not going to be large. Also, from each category, a few seats are horizontally reserved for PwD or Persons with Disability. These numbers are shown in the bracket. In case the seats are not filled by PwD candidates, they would then be accordingly offered to students of the same category.
