How it is graded                                                                                                                                                                                                                   The compulsory disciplines are Mathematics, Physics and one language. Besides this, two more Electives will be considered in the five subjects and then all this will be taken into account while preparing the final list. For example, if a student scores 375 out of 500, he/she will get 30% and this score would be added to the Entrance weightage. Hence, the final score will determine the rank of the candidate in the final merit list.

Why such a pattern                                                                                                                                                                                                             This pattern of selection will not only make students more serious towards the non science subjects, but will also prepare them well for the entrance tests. Time should be properly utilised in preparing for Board Exams to optimise JEE Preparation. Students must go through the entire syllabus without skipping through any topic. Because of lack of time or the topics being easy or difficult, in both ways, students tend to miss topics, which should not be done. This approach will not help with the JEE exam.
