The declaration of JEE Main 2018 result leads to the announcement of the online registration for JEE Advanced 2018.
New Delhi/02.05.2018: With the release of JEE Main 2018 results, the schedule to get registered for Joint Entrance Examination Advanced was announced on May 1. As per the circular issued on Tuesday, the total number of eligible students (231,024 candidates) can now sit for the JEE Advanced exam by completing the online registration process, which has begun today i.e. May 2 till May 7 between 10 am and 5 pm. Eligible students can pay the registration fee till May 8.
According to the circular, “At the time of registration, candidates should upload scanned copies of documents including Class X and XII certificates, caste or other suitable certificates. Registration fee is neither refundable nor transferable.” Answering to the question asked by a journalist on IIT’s tough question paper, an official of the Central Board of Secondary Education said, “The overall scores seem to be lower this year owing to which cut-offs for JEE-Advanced have gone down. Fight for IITs keeps getting tougher with every passing year.”
Some Key Points to Be Noted by Students before Heading for the Online JEE Advanced 2018 Registration
- Check the age criterion. You must be 25 years of old (DOB on or after 1 October 1993). For candidates belonging to SC/ST/PWD categories, there is an age relaxation of five years.
- An eligible candidate has the opportunity to clear JEE Advanced exam in two attempts. Well, there is a catch. If the person fails in the first attempt, he needs to clear it in the second attempt, the very next year. Remember, a student is allowed to attempt the exam in consecutive years.
- Those who were earlier admitted to any Indian Institute of Technology or their admission was cancelled after joining or had grabbed a seat in IIT are not qualified for Joint Entrance Examination Advanced.
The online registration process will close on May 7. Avoid the last minute hassle by completing the process now.
