MUMBAI: A merit list of qualified candidates, one third compared to last year, was JEE Advanced 2018 result shocker on Sunday.

The drop in the number of qualified candidates from 50,455 last year to 18,138 by maintaining last exam’s qualifying score has raised doubts whether there are enough students to fill all the seats at the premier Indian Institutes of Technology.

Pranav Goyal from Panchkula district of Haryana topped the exam scoring 337/360. Five of the top ten ranks have been secured by candidates from Kota, with the coaching capital reinforcing its position as the mecca for preparation for the JEE Advanced. And for a first in JEE (A), two candidates from the physically challenged category have made it to the elite club: Lay Jain (AIR 9) and Neel Gupta (AIR 10).

“This is a happy and surprising situation where the two boys have overcome so many odds to make it to the top of the ranks card,” said M L Sharma, JEE (A) chairman from IIT Roorkee.


Asked about the fall in number of students making the cut, he said that as the minimum qualifying scores were already pre-defined, the IITs found that fewer candidates had scored 10% in each subject and 35% in aggregate.

“We have qualified 1.6 times the number of candidates to the seats available in all the IITs,” said professor Shalabh S, JEE Advanced chairman from IIT Kanpur, the organising school for the entrance exam. The IITs have 11,279 seats in all.

A lot of students who don’t get the top ranks or seats in courses of their choice drop out, so education experts have expressed apprehensions about filling all the seats in IITs this year.

The minimum subject-wise score is 12 for open category with an aggregate of 126 and merely 8,664 candidates made the cut as compared to 23,390 last year. It’s the same story in OBC-non creamy layer, SC and ST categories.
