JEE Main Results coming soon, Cut-off seems to go Higher
Expert says cut-off of JEE main 2021 for the new admission to go higher. As per expert data survey estimates, students aspiring for IITs or NITs will need around 90 percentile.
Over 7.09 lakh students registered for JEE Main session 3 that concluded on July 27. The preliminary answer key for this has been released and the result is expected to be declared within 10 days. Most of the students who appeared for the engineering entrance exam in July have found the exam easy. Experts also termed the exam as moderate, which means that those scoring more marks and IIT admissions may have higher cut-offs for JEE Advanced.
According to Nitin Vijay, MD Motion Education Kota, this session was easy as compared to the first and second so the cut-off for the third session can go a little higher. “If you get percentile up to 98 or more then students have chances of getting good NIT,” said Vijay.
“In the third session, the chemistry was the easiest and scoring section of the paper as it was completely NCERT based. When we compare the first, second, and third sessions of JEE Main 2021, we noticed that every subject had different difficulty levels. In the third session, the physics subject was noticed to be the easiest part but in previous sessions, chemistry was the scoring one. Also, the third session was the easiest compared to the other two sessions,” he added.
“The final cut-off could be decided after all sessions of JEE Main 2021 are completed. The august session is yet to be held. Based on the level of JEE Main Paper-1 held in July and the earlier levels of papers held Feb and March attempts, the cut off in JEE Main 2021 to qualify for JEE Advanced 2021 is expected to be around 90 percentile for general category,” said Ramesh Batlish, an expert from FIITJEE.
