Criterion 1 - Qualifying Marks in JEE Main 2022

The first eligibility criteria for the JEE Advanced 2022 exam is related to the qualifying marks and rank that a candidate scores in the JEE Main 2022 exam. Candidates should have cleared the JEE Main 2022 (Paper 1). They are required to be within the top 2,50,000 candidates clearing the JEE Main exam. The division of categories is as follows:

  • OPEN - 40.5%
  • GEN-EWS - 10%
  • OBC-NCL - 27%
  • SC - 15%
  • ST - 7.5%
  • PwD - 5% horizontal reservation

Criterion 2 - No. of Attempts Allowed

Candidates can appear for the JEE Advanced exam at most 2 times in 2 consecutive years. It has also been announced by IIT Bombay that those candidates who filled the application for JEE Advanced 2021 but didn’t appear for the exam, would also have the option to appear for the JEE Advanced 2022 exam. No candidate would be allowed to sit for the JEE Advanced 2022 exam more than twice in two consecutive years.

Criterion 3 - Age Limit

The candidates born on or after 1st October 1997 are eligible for the JEE Advanced 2022. Candidates of the PwD, ST, or SC will get 5 years of relaxation in the age limit criteria. Hence, candidates belonging to these categories born on or after 1st October 1992 are eligible for the JEE Advanced 2022.

However, according to recent sources, it is stipulated that age will soon no longer be a determining factor for taking the JEE Advanced exam. (still not official)

Criterion 4 - Previous Admissions at IITs

If a candidate has already been admitted to an IIT or ISM, they wouldn’t be allowed to JEE Advanced 2022. If a candidate got selected or admitted to the IIT but got rejected or expelled afterwards (regardless of reason) cannot appear for this exam. However, candidates who were first-time enrollees in a preparation programme at any of the IITs in 2021 may sit for the JEE Advanced exam in 2022.

If a candidate got selected and given a seat in any IIT via the JoSAA 2021, however, was

(a) Unable to report at the "official reporting centre" or online,
(b) Cancelled before the last round of allocating seats, or
(c) Withdrew before the last round of allocating seats, then they are eligible to give the JEE Advanced 2022 exam.

But in each of the aforementioned situations, the applicant must also meet the prerequisites listed in Criteria 1 through Criteria 5.

Criterion 5 - Having Appeared in the Examination for Class 12 or Equivalent

Candidates should have cleared the 10+2 examination in 2022 or 2021 for the first time. Additionally, if the academic year 2019–20 results are released on or after 15th October 2020, applicants from the board that conducted the exam for the 12th grade in 2020 will also be considered qualified for JEE Advanced 2022, given that they also satisfy the eligibility criteria.

The candidate will not be allowed to participate in JEE Advanced 2022 if the examination board for class 12th released the 2019-20 results before 15th October 2020, however, withheld the result of a specific candidate.

As a one-time special measure due to COVID-19, candidates who successfully registered for JEE Advanced 2021 and took the class 12th (or equivalent) exam for the first time in 2020 or 2021 but did not appear in BOTH papers, i.e., Paper 1 and Paper 2, are eligible to directly apply for JEE Advanced 2022.
