CEligibility Criteria for Indian Nationals

All the candidates must simultaneously fulfil each and every one of the following five criteria to appear for JEE (Advanced) 2023

Criteria 1- Performance in JEE 2023

Candidates should be among the top 2,50,000 successful candidates (including all categories) in B.E./B.Tech. paper of JEE (Main) 2023.

The percentages of various categories of candidates to be shortlisted are: 10% for GEN-EWS, 27% for OBC-NCL, 15% for SC, 7.5% for ST, and the remaining 40.5% is OPEN for all. Within each of these five categories, 5% horizontal reservation is available for PwD candidates.

The following table shows the order to be followed while choosing the top 2,50,000 candidates in various categories based on the performance in B.E./B.Tech. paper of JEE (Main) 2023.

Category-wise distribution of top 2,50,000* candidates (Criterion 1)



Number of "Top" candidates




































* The total number of candidates may be slightly greater than 2,50,000 in the presence of “tied” ranks / scores in any category.

Criteria 2: Age Limit

Candidates should have been born on or after October 1, 1998. Five years age relaxation is given to SC, ST, and PwD candidates, i.e. these candidates should have been born on or after October 1, 1993.

Criteria 3: Number of Attempts

A candidate can attempt JEE (Advanced) maximum of two times in two consecutive years

Criteria 4: Appearance in Class 12th (or equivalent) examination

A candidate should have appeared for the Class XII (or equivalent) examination for the first time in either 2022 or 2023 with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics as compulsory subjects.
Candidates who had appeared in Class XII (or equivalent) examination for the first time in 2021 or earlier, are NOT eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2023, irrespective of the combination of subjects attempted/offered.
Note: By appearance in Class XII (or equivalent) examination, it is meant that the Board concerned declared the result for that year irrespective of whether or not examination was conducted. It will be considered as an appearance even if the result of a particular candidate got withheld.

However, if the examination Board of Class XII (or equivalent) declared the results for the academic year 2020-21 on or after October 25, 2021, then the candidates of that Board who appeared for their Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2021 are also eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2023, provided they meet all the other eligibility criteria. In case the examination Board of Class XII (or equivalent) declared the results for the academic year 2020-21 before October 25, 2021 but the result of a particular candidate was withheld, then the candidate will not be eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2023.

Criteria 5:Earlier addmission at IITs

A candidate should NOT have been admitted to an IIT irrespective of whether or not the candidate continued in the program OR accepted an IIT seat by reporting “online” / at a “reporting centre” in the past. Candidates whose admission to IITs was cancelled (for whatever reason) after joining any IIT are also NOT eligible to appear for JEE (Advanced) 2023.

Candidates who have been admitted to a preparatory course in any of the IITs for the first time in 2022 can appear in JEE (Advanced) 2023.

The candidates who were allocated a seat in an IIT through JoSAA 2022 but (i) did not report “online” / at any “reporting centre” OR, (ii) withdrew before the last round of seat allotment, OR, (iii) had their seat cancelled (for whatever reason) before the last round of seat allotment for IITs, are eligible to appear for JEE (Advanced) 2023.

However, in all of the above cases, the candidate is also required to fulfil the conditions mentioned from Criterion 1 to Criterion 4.

Indian nationals belonging to certain categories are admitted under the seats reserved for them in accordance with the rules of the Government of India. The categories and the extent of reservation are as follows:

  • Other Backward Classes belonging to the Non-Creamy Layer (OBC-NCL) – 27% of seats in every course. The backward class should be in the current updated central list of OBCs (www.ncbc.nic.in).

Candidates belonging to the creamy layer of OBC are NOT entitled for reservation. Such candidates are treated as belonging to the general (GEN), i.e. unreserved category, and they will be eligible only for the OPEN seats – the seats for which everyone is eligible.

  • Scheduled Caste (SC) – 15% of seats in every course.
  • Scheduled Tribe (ST) – 7.5% of seats in every course.

The benefit of reservation will be given only to those castes and tribes that are mentioned in the respective central list of corresponding states published by the Government of India (http://socialjustice.nic.in and http://tribal.nic.in).

  • Persons with Disability (PwD) – 3% seats in each of OPEN, OBC-NCL, SC and ST category seats.
  • Benefit would be given to those who have at least 40% impairment irrespective of the type of disability i.e., locomotor, visual or SEVERE dyslexic.
  • Leprosy-cured candidates who are otherwise fit to pursue the courses are also included in this sub-category.
  • Candidates belonging to the OBC-NCL, SC, ST and PwD categories will be declared as qualified on the basis of a relaxed criterion (see 21. RANK LISTS).
  • Unfilled seats reserved under OBC-NCL category will be de-reserved to OPEN category seats. However, seats remaining vacant under the SC and ST categories shall NOT be de-reserved to any category. The reservation for PwD candidates is horizontal and hence, unfilled seats will be de-reserved to the respective categories i.e., unfilled SC-PwD seats will be converted to the SC category seats and so on.
  • The category of a candidate as entered in the database, which will be made available by the JEE Apex Board [which conducts JEE (Main) 2017 examination], will be final and requests for change of category will NOT be entertained.
