The old rules were brought back for admission to this year’s Joint Entrance Main (JEE Main) and Joint Entrance Advanced (JEE Advanced). According to this rule, 75 per cent marks in class 12th examination has been fixed for joint admission. However, the students requested to change the criteria of this rule. Recently, Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan gave a new hint in this regard. He assured that steps will be taken considering the needs of the students.
It was recently informed that for joint admission, henceforth only passing the 12th examination is not required and candidates must have minimum 75 percent marks in the 12th board examination. However some relaxation in marks was given for reserved category candidates. Although the related rules were relaxed during the last year’s covid situation, the board decided to bring back this rule again. However, the students requested to relax the criteria of this rule.

According to sources, due to technical and other errors in JEE Main and Advanced exams last year, inconsistencies in the answer sheets of several candidates and errors in the results were noticed. For related reasons, by the first week of December, Lok Sabha MP Karti P Chidambaram wrote a letter to Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and requested the Government of India to relax the eligibility criteria for JEE Men 2023. In response to that letter, the Education Minister said that relaxation of the standard of 75 percent marks in the twelfth has been sent for consideration. Incidentally, the registration process of JEE Main 2023 has started. Registration will continue till 12th January.
