Criterion 2: Age Limit

Candidates born on or after 1st October 1997 are eligible for JEE (Advanced) 2022. However, SC, ST, and PwD candidates have 5 years of relaxation, which means that the candidates born on or after 1st October 1992 are eligible to apply for the advanced examination.

Criterion 3: Number of attempts

JEE (Advanced) may only be taken twice in two consecutive years. Applicants who previously applied for JEE (Advanced) 2020/2021 but were unable to appear for the exam because of SARS COVID-19 can now apply for JEE (Advanced) 2022.

Criterion 4: Class XII or Equivalent Qualification

  • Any candidate who appeared in Class XII or equivalent examination for the first time in 2021 or 2022 with the subjects Physics, Chemistry,Mathematics, A Language and any other subject from the mentioned four is eligible to take JEE (Advanced) 2022.
  • Candidates who appeared in Class XII (or equivalent) for the first time in 2020 or before are ineligible to sit for JEE (Advanced) 2022 unless they are covered by the one-time special measure.
  Note: When we say 'appeared in Class XII (or equivalent) examination,' we imply that the board in question released the results for that year, regardless of whether or not the exam was held. Even if the result of a certain candidate is withheld, it will be counted as an appearance. However, there are two circumstances that follow, if the examination board of Class XII or equivalant:  
  • The results for the academic year 2019-20 were declared on or after 15th October 2020, then the candidates who had appeared in Class XII exams in 2020 are also eligible to compete in JEE (Advanced) 2022.
  • The results for the academic year 2019-2020 were declared before 15th October 2020 but if the candidate's result was withheld, then he/she is ineligible to compete in JEE (Advanced) 2022.

Criterion 5 – Earlier admission at IITs

The following are the candidates who are eligible to appear for JEE (Advanced) 2022.
  • Candidates enrolled in a preparatory course at any IITs for the first time in 2021 are eligible to take JEE (Advanced) in 2022.
  • Candidates who had been offered a seat at an IIT through JoSAA 2021, but
  • did not report “online” / at any “reporting centre” OR,
  • withdrew before the last round of seat allotment, OR,
  • had their seat cancelled (for whatever reason) before the last round of seat allotment for IITs.
  The applicants must still meet the eligibility criteria from 1 through 4 to appear for JEE (Advanced) 2022.
