JEE Advanced cut off marks are important details that each candidate should be aware of. The cutoff is nothing but the minimum mark that a candidate needs to score while appearing for the exam. Notably, as per the general guidelines, candidates who achieve a score that is equal or more than IIT JEE Advanced cutoff, they will only be allowed to participate in the counselling process. The cutoffs are normally released on the official website of the exam conducting body. It is usually revealed after the results are announced or declared.
An interesting thing about cut off is that it depends upon the difficulty level of the JEE Advanced Question Paper. For instance, if the difficulty level of the question paper is high the JEE Advanced cut-offs are most of the time set low and vice versa. However, looking at the trends that have been adopted in the past few years we have seen a significant increase in the cut-offs and this might be primarily due to the increasing competition between candidates.
