Hyderabad: Students from Andhra Pradesh have reaped a rich harvest in the Joint Entrance Examination-Main, the results of which were released late on Friday night. Not only getting the top three ranks in the All India entrance, more than 25,000 students have qualified for the next step i.e. JEE Advanced, which is the key test for admission into IITs across the country. Srichaitanya–Narayana IIT Academy has once again proved their supremacy in the JEE Main with as many as 16,712 of its students cracking the examination.
FITJEE, the other coaching institute has also claimed that as many as 430 of its Hyderabad campus students qualified for the Advanced. Some other coaching institutes have also announced that their students have qualified in good numbers. Vakacharla Promod of Srichaitanya-Narayana Group has created history by scoring a challenging 355 out of 360 marks. He was followed by a classmate Mohammed Akram Khan with 350 marks. Five students from the same group – Poosa Nihal, KVV Satish, GK Chaitanya, Babineni Eeswar and K Jayachandra –put up a splendid show by scoring 345 out of 360. The JEE Main was held on April 6 in offline mode and on April 9, 11, 12 and 19 in the online mode. A total of 1,22,863 students registered from AP and more than 80 percent of them have written the exam.
The CBSE has announced 115 as the General Cut Off mark whereas it is 74 for OBC, 53 for SCs and 47 and STs. JEE Main result is not the final one. A final All India Rank will be generated on the basis of a cumulative score of 40% of the normalized marks a student secures in the Intermediate or Class XII Board marks and 60% of marks obtained in JEE-Main.
This rank will be considered for admission into NITs, CFTIs and IIITs as well as engineering colleges in nine states. The AIRs will be released on July 7 by the CBSE. The 25,000 students figure in the top 1.5 lakh candidates who alone are eligible to write the JEE Advanced which will be held on May 25. Registrations for JEE Advanced will commence from 12 am on May 4 and end at 5 pm on May 9. For securing a seat in IITs, the students shall be in the top 20 percentile of Board marks.
Srichaitanya- Narayana Academy has also claimed that 16 students have scored above 340; 33 students have scored above 330; 63 candidates above 320; 88 above 310 and 130 above 300 marks. “We beat our own records. None can match our numbers and quality” said a beaming Sushma, the Academic Director of Srichaitanya. “We will continue to provide maximum number of techies in the coming years as well. We throw up a challenge that none in India can beat us” Sindhura, the Academic Director of Narayana, said. The FIITJEE students who scored exceptionally well this year include Ravi Teja (340/360), Saksham Sharma (337/360), Vishwesh (335/360).
The Board of Intermediate Education will send the report containing the marks of State candidates only after the declaration of Advanced Supplementary, according to Ram Shankar Naik, Secretary of BIE. The normalization process is one cumbersome issue in which the CBSE has to arrive at state-specific cut-off marks. This is bound to raise objection from one and all.
