Just a moment ……..
Even if you are not among those who are able to score 75% aggregate marks in class 12th examination, you still have the admission opportunity based on top 20 percentile of class 12th board.
· 75% marks is for only CBSE Board
If you are from other board then you should come in top 20 percentile in that board for elligible .
How is the Top 20 Percentile Cutoff of class 12th Boards for IIT Admission calculated?
For calculating top 20 percentile for different class 12th boards, the marks scored in five subjects – (1) Physics, (2) Chemistry, (3) Mathematics, (4) A language and (5) Any subject other than the above four, is taken into account.
Find the following scenarios of percentile calculation
· Scenario 1 : In case a candidate has taken more than 1 languages as the 4th subject in class 12th, then the language with higher marks will be considered.
· If candidates have taken more than one subject (any subject other than the above four) as the 5th subject in class 12th, then also the subject with higher marks will be considered
· If the marks in a subject are not allotted out of 100, then the total marks for a subject will be scaled (up or down) to 100 so that the total aggregate marks are out of 500.
