Ever since the declaration of the JEE new pattern for 2013 and beyond, students are waiting for the cut off percentages of their respective boards to be released. For a quick review of the key points of the new JEE pattern, read the article: MHRD and IITs finally reach an agreement: New JEE pattern finalized.

Now as you know, to be eligible for admission in IITs, students should be in the top 20 percentile bracket of their respective boards. A few of the boards have released this cut-off percentage (based on 2012’s data), students scoring above which would be in the top 20 percentile bracket of that particular board.

Here’s a state-wise list of range of the board percentages within which the cut-off would fall:

  1. Andhra Pradesh: 87.2%
  2. Assam: 54.2%
  3. Bihar: 64.6%
  4. CBSE: 77.8%
  5. Chattisgarh: 56.8%
  6. Goa: 56.25%
  7. Himanchal Pradesh: 63.2%

  9. Jharkhand: 52.4%
  10. Karnataka: 67.5%
  11. Kerala: 76.5%
  12. Maharashtra: 61.17%
  13. Manipur: 64.6%
  14. Meghalaya: 49.4%
  15. Mizoram: 56.2%
  16. MP: 64%

  23. Tripura: 50.8%
  24. UP: 65%
  25. Uttarakhand: 55.2%
  26. West Bengal: 58%

As can be seen, this cutoff percentage would vary greatly across different boards. The vast differences in the percentages are due to multiple reasons, including difference in valuation system adopted by different boards, teaching methods, syllabi etc.

Cut-off percentages for many prominent boards including ISC have not been released yet. Please wait for the cut-offs to be released. This board cut-off is for general category students and would be lower for other categories.

Also, this data cannot be used as a benchmark for the cut-off for 2013. Here are the reasons why!
