IITs bring back class 12 performance criteria
IITs made the decision to bring back the performance criteria for class 12 for future admissions. The decision to relax the Class 12 board exam performance was made amid the global pandemic. The admission requirement was relaxed, and pass marks were required in subjects such as language, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, and other subjects apart from these.
Know about the old requirements
Candidates before 2020 with JEE (Advanced) qualification ranks were required to score at least 75% in Class 12 to secure a place at an IIT. Otherwise, they needed figures in the top 20 percentile in their board exams. Students from the Scheduled Tribe (ST) and Scheduled Caste (SC) required a minimum of 65% or achieved the top 20 percentile criteria.
