Points to consider for JEE MAIN eligibility criteria 2014:

  • Candidates are also advised to note and verify for themselves the eligibility for appearing in jee advanced– 2014 as well as eligibility for admission to various institutes. Being eligible to write jee main and by obtaining an all india rank in jee main, a candidate does not automatically become eligible for admission. Only top 1.5 lack candidates will be eligible for the JEE Advance 2014. 

  • Candidates seeking admission to the institutions in the states of gujarat, maharashtra nagaland and odisha, which were earlier admitting based on their state level examination, are also advised to verify their eligibility as per criteria laid down by these state governments.

 

No. of Attempts and Age limit for the states of Maharashtra and Odisha:

  • Since the states of Maharashtra, Nagaland and Odisha have now joined JEE Main system from 2014. The age limit, for admission to institutions in these states which were earlier admitting candidates based on their state level examinations, will be as per their past practice only. The number of attempts in such cases will also remain same as per their past practice. This will however be obviously not applicable for admission to IITs/NITs/IIITs/CFTIs.
