Only those candidates who attempted both Paper - 1 and Paper - 2 of JEE Advanced will be considered for the ranking. Marks in Physics in JEE Advanced will be equal to marks in Physics section of Paper - 1 plus marks in Physics section of Paper - 2. Similar procedures will be followed for Chemistry and Mathematics. The sum of the marks obtained in the individual subjects will be the aggregate marks for the candidate.
Based on the performance in JEE Advanced 2017, a Common Merit List (CML) will be prepared. Candidates must score at least 10% in each subject and 35% in aggregate in order to be in the CML.
Separate merit lists will be prepared corresponding to OBC (NCL), SC and ST categories.
Candidates of OBC (NCL) category must score at least 9% in each subject and 31.5% in aggregate in order to be in the OBC merit list.
Candidates of SC and ST categories must score at least 5% in each subject and 17.5% in aggregate in order to be in their respective merit lists.
Separate PD merit lists will be prepared corresponding to the GE, OBC (NCL), SC and ST categories. To be in these respective merit lists, candidates must score at least 5% in each subject and 17.5% in aggregate.
The tie-break criterion in the various merit lists adopted for awarding ranks to the candidates who have scored the same aggregate marks is as follows: Higher rank for higher marks in Mathematics, followed by marks in Physics and same rank in case both the candidates have the same marks in each of the three subjects.
Separate merit lists will be prepared for preparatory course only if the number of SC/ST/PD candidates in the respective merit lists is less than 1.4 times the number of seats available in the respective categories. To be in these merit lists, candidates must score at least 2.5% in each subject and 8.75% in aggregate. While preparing the merit lists, if a candidate belongs to more than one category of relaxed norms, then he/she for the purpose of ranking shall be considered in all the categories in which he/she qualifies. There will be no separate waiting list for such candidates.
