The following procedure was used for selecting the 1,50,000 candidates who were eligible to appear for JEE (Advanced)- 2013 based on their performance in JEE (Main) -2013 as notified by JAB (Joint Admission Board) 2013.
1. 50.5% of the 1,50,000 (75,750 candidates) were taken from the top rankers of the Common Merit List (CML) of JEE (Main). 27% (40,500), 15% (22,500) and 7.5% (11,250) candidates were taken from the top rankers of the category rank lists of OBC-NCL, SC and ST, respectively. The candidates figuring in the category rank lists were those who did not figure in the 75,750 candidates chosen from the CML.
2. 3% of the candidates selected within each category were those belonging to PwD (Persons with Disability) sub-category, who figure in the respective rank lists of JEE (Main).
Only the candidate’s aggregate marks in JEE (Main) was considered and no tie-break mechanism was implemented at this stage. This made the list of candidates eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced)-2013 slightly more than 1,50,000 due to bunching of candidates with the same aggregate marks at the bottom of each category
The scores of JEE(Main) were made available by the CBSE on 7th May, 2013 and accordingly, the top 1,50,000 candidates, category-wise were made eligible to apply, online, for JEE(Advanced). Since no tie-break mechanism was applied and there was a bunching of candidates at the cut-off marks for each category, a total of 1,52,351 candidates were eligible to apply for JEE(Advanced). Of these, 1,26,749 candidates registered for the JEE (Advanced) – 2013.
The syllabus as well as examination pattern (two papers of three hour duration, each containing equal number of questions in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics) for JEE(Advanced)-2013 were the same as that used for IIT-JEE-2012.
Due to the implementation difficulties faced, the eligibility criteria for joining any of the IITs or ISM Dhanbad was modified as 60% marks in their 12th Board or equivalent (55% for SC/ST/PD candidates) in respect of those students who passed their Board exam for the first time in 2012. This one time exception was done with the approval of the IIT Council Chairman.
The JEE(Advanced)-2013 was conducted on 2nd June, 2013 at centres spread over India and one at Dubai. The results of JEE(Advanced) were declared on 21st June, 2013. A total of 21,110 candidates, in all categories, had qualified JEE (Advanced) – 2013. Of these, a total of 14,336 students were asked to fill choice-list, between 24th and 30th June, 2013, for 215 courses offered by 16 IITs and ISM, Dhanbad. The total number of seats available in these courses were 9867.
Based on the choices given by the students, three rounds of course allocation was done, on 2nd, 9th and 13th July, 2013. Each round of course allocation was followed by a document verification period, for those candidates who got a seat for the first time in that round of course allocation. At the end of this exercise, all the seats are allotted, except for 8 B.Arch seats under OBC(NCL) category (at IIT Kharagpur and IIT Roorkee). This was due to the fact that no candidate was available who had qualified the Architecture Aptitude Test (AAT), which is mandatory for admission to the B.Arch programme. There were 52 seats, reserved for ST category students, which are vacant across the 17 institutions. These were allotted to ST category students who had qualified to join the preparatory programme. In addition to the ST category students, the preparatory programme also has 98 PwD sub-category students.
