Criterion 1 – Performance in JEE (Main) 2024:

  • Candidates should be among the top 2,50,000 successful candidates (including all categories) in B.E./B.Tech. paper of JEE (Main) 2024.
  • The percentages of various categories of candidates to be shortlisted are 10% for GEN-EWS, 27% for OBC-NCL, 15% for SC, 7.5% for ST, and the remaining 40.5% is OPEN for all. Within each of these five categories, a 5% horizontal reservation is available for PwD candidates.

Criterion 2 – Age limit:

The student should have been born on or after October 1, 1999. Five years of age relaxation is given to SC, ST, and PwD candidates, i.e. these candidates should have been born on or after October 1, 1994.

Criterion 3 – Number of Attempts:

A student can attempt JEE (Advanced) a maximum of two times in two consecutive years.

Criterion 4 – Appearance in Class XII (or equivalent) examination*:

  • A candidate should have appeared for the Class XII (or equivalent) examination for the first time in either 2023 or 2024 with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics as compulsory subjects.
  • Candidates who had appeared in Class XII (or equivalent) examination for the first time in 2022 or earlier are NOT eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2023, irrespective of the combination of subjects attempted/offered.

* By appearance in Class XII (or equivalent) examination, it is meant that the Board concerned declared the result for that year irrespective of whether or not the examination was conducted.

Criterion 5 – Earlier Admission at IITs:

  • A candidate should NOT have been admitted to an IIT irrespective of whether or not the candidate continued in the program OR accepted an IIT seat by reporting “online” / at a “reporting centre” in the past.
  • Candidates whose admission to IITs was cancelled (for whatever reason) after joining any IIT are also NOT eligible to appear for JEE (Advanced) 2024.
  • Candidates who have been admitted to a preparatory course in any of the IITs for the first time in 2023 can appear in JEE (Advanced) 2024.
  • The candidates who were allocated a seat in an IIT through JoSAA 2023 but

(i) did not report “online” / at any “reporting centre” OR,

(ii) withdrew before the last round of seat allotment, OR,

(iii) had their seat cancelled (for whatever reason) before the last round of seat allotment for IITs, are eligible to appear for JEE (Advanced) 2023.


Supernumerary Seats for Female & Foreign Nationals:

As per the directions of the Ministry of Education, Government of India, and the decision by the IIT Council, supernumerary seats have been created for female candidates to improve the gender balance in the undergraduate programs in IITs.

These supernumerary seats will be offered:

  1. to only those female candidates (Indian nationals and OCI/PIO candidates) who are declared qualified in JEE (Advanced) 2024 and
  2. strictly based on their performance in JEE (Advanced) 2024.

The number of supernumerary seats in various programs will be decided by individual IITs ensuring that every institute has at least 20% female enrolment in undergraduate program(s). The detailed procedure for implementation of the above shall be set out in the Business Rules of JoSAA 2024 (which will be made available subsequently on

Important Guidelines for Foreign Nationals & OCI/PIO Card Holders:

Students who are NOT citizens of India (by birth or naturalised) (but not OCI/PIO candidates) shall be considered as foreign nationals. Such foreign national candidates will be provided with a supernumerary cap of 10% of the total number of seats in every course.

The ambit of reservation of seats under the GEN-EWS, OBC-NCL, SC, ST, and PwD  categories/sub-categories does not apply to these students. There are no separate supernumerary seats or sub-categories for females in the foreign national supernumerary seats.

The foreign national candidates, at the time of registering for JEE Advanced 2024, are NOT required to write JEE Main 2024 and may register for JEE Advanced 2024 directly subject to fulfilment of other eligibility criteria.

OCI/PIO Candidates:

As per the decision of the Honourable Supreme Court of India, the OCI/PIO candidates shall be considered Indian nationals.

Candidates must also meet additional eligibility criteria specific to the architecture program of the IITs.

Exam Format for AAT 2024:

The AAT exam is usually a paper-based test where candidates are required to solve architectural design problems, draw sketches, and provide creative solutions to given scenarios.

It assesses the candidate’s visual perception, logical reasoning, and architectural awareness.

Exam Duration for AAT 2024:

The AAT exam is typically of short duration, ranging from a few hours to half a day, depending on the specific instructions provided for the year’s exam.

Exam Syllabus for AAT 2024:

The syllabus for the AAT exam covers topics related to architectural design, visual perception, creativity, and basic architectural concepts.


In essence, JEE Advanced is a rigorous examination that aims to identify the most talented and capable candidates for admission into the top engineering institutes in India.
