In this blog, we will delve into the intricacies of the IIT Kharagpur Cut-off, admission process, qualifying marks, and All India Ranks.

IIT Kharagpur Admission Process | Step-by-Step Guide:

Getting into IIT Kharagpur involves a few steps to ensure students are a good fit for engineering studies. Here’s a simple breakdown:

Registration: First, students must sign up for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main. This is the test you need to take to get into any IIT.

JEE Main: The JEE Main has two parts. Paper 1 is for all engineering students, and Paper 2 is for students interested in architecture. Students have to take both papers if they want to apply for IIT Kharagpur’s architecture program.

JEE Advanced: If students do well in the JEE Main and get a good rank, they can take the JEE Advanced. This is a tougher test that looks even closer at their engineering skills.

Admissions and Counselling: Based on how students perform in the JEE Advanced, they will be invited for counselling. This is where students choose which IITs they prefer and which programs they are interested in studying.

Factors Determining JEE Advanced Cut-Off 2023:

The cut-off marks for getting into IIT Kharagpur depend on the following factors:

Number of Applicants: The total number of students applying for admission plays a crucial role. A higher number of applicants can intensify the competition, potentially impacting the cut-off.

Number of Candidates Appeared in the Exam: The actual attendance and participation in the JEE Advanced exam contribute to the overall dynamics. The more candidates appear, the more competitive the scenario, influencing the cut-off.

Difficulty Level of JEE Advanced: The complexity of the JEE Advanced exam is a significant determinant. If the exam is perceived as challenging, the cut-off may adjust accordingly.

Total Number of Seats Available at IIT Kharagpur: The number of seats IIT Kharagpur offers for a particular program directly influences the cut-off. Limited seats can lead to a higher cut-off due to increased competition.

Category of Candidates: The categorisation of candidates, such as those belonging to Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST), Other Backward Classes (OBC), and general categories, affect the cut-off differently for each group.

Previous Year JEE Advanced Cut-off Trends: Analysing trends from previous years provides valuable insights. Understanding how the cut-off has behaved historically helps candidates gauge the competitive landscape and set realistic expectations for the current year.
