The primary reason being that these are the months when the JEE Main and many other entrance exams take place and the results are released. In this post, we will take a look at the expected cut off JEE mains 2019.


In 2019, the JEE main exam took place in the second week of January with the answer key being released on the 15th January 2019. Earlier the results were supposed to be published on January 31. But, the National Testing Agency (NTA) published JEE Main result and Percentile Score on the official website on January 19.

Types of Cut Off


Qualifying Cut Off


Before getting to JEE Main result, one should understand that JEE Main cut off is released category wise which has been divided into two. There is one category which helps the student to become eligible for appearing in JEE Advanced, which is called the qualifying cut off. The students can check this by logging into the result portal.


Admission Cut Off


The second type of cut off is released for admission purpose by JoSAA, known as the admission cut off. This one is solely for getting admissions into colleges, given that a student doesn’t want to give JEE Advanced. Once the JEE Main result is out, students may refer to these cut off lists to know where their future stands. All participating institutes will have their admission cut off upon the JoSAA website by February first week.


What’s Going to Happen?


The authorities will release the JEE Main 2019 cutoff along with the result on April 30. The cutoff for the JEE Main 2019 January session will not be declared. Candidates can check the cutoff of JEE Main 2019 by logging into the result portal online. The JEE Main 2019 cutoff will be published category-wise. The qualifying JEE Main cutoff 2019 is the minimum score candidate needs to score to be eligible to appear in JEE Advanced.


In this sense, it is different from the JEE Main cutoff that is published by JoSAA for the participating institutes for admission purpose. The JEE Main 2019 cutoff published by JoSAA will be branch and category specific for each participating institute, and each cutoff will list the minimum ranks required for admission. If a JEE Main aspirant doesn’t meet the cutoff of an institute, the candidates have little chance of admission at that institute.


Trends in JEE Main Cut Off


From the past four years, the cut off for general has been pretty high. We definitely saw some relaxation in 2017. In 2014, the cut off for general category was 115 and last year it was 81, which is still considerable.

As for other categories, the bar has been pretty low with SC having just 32 and ST with an even lower cut off which was 27. We can expect a decrease in the cut-off but since there has been a change in authorities from CBSE to NAT, the cut off could be different altogether.

JEE Main Result 2019


Since the first session of the JEE main exam and the objection link time period are over, students are waiting for the result to be out on 31st January 2019. The candidate will find the score and the rank together presents on the online portal. As for the next session of the exam that is to be held in April, the results will be out on 30th April 2019.


The JEE Main result will be released very soon and will be having some specific information mentioned about the student, which will be important for further procedures. So, students should keep a check if everything is mentioned in their scorecard or not.


  1. First and obvious is the name of the candidate.
  2. The roll number which the student has been using regularly will be there.
  3. Date of birth, being used as the password is also mentioned for validation.
  4. Name of the parents is a compulsory thing.
  5. State code is very important when it comes to counseling.
  6. Category and nationality have to be mentioned to know the cut-off.
  7. Subject-wise NTA scores.
  8. The first attempt scores of NTA of the student.


How to Check JEE Main Result


Students can simply check their JEE Main result by inserting in their roll number and date of birth as the password. As soon as he/she clicks on ‘submit’, the result would be visible. After the student has checked the result, he/she can check the scorecard which shows how much they have scored in the exam in detail.


For students who have appeared for the exam, in both sessions, the best of the two scores will be considered for the result, which is applicable for determining the rank and score etc.


JEE Main Rank List


Many colleges that consider the JEE Main result actually consider the rank list and the rank that student has secured for his/her admission. Once the scores are out, they are evaluated and every student is given a rank. This rank list is released in May after both sessions of JEE Main are over and the results are out. There is a different process involved in calculating this rank since the exam is conducted in two shifts and there are many students who give the exam twice.


What’s Next?


Once the JEE Main result and cut off are out, many students feel pleased while many are disappointed. Those who qualify the exam may further apply for counseling sessions conducted by JoSAA. This is the process of allocating the institutes to the qualified students, which are IITs, NIITs and GFTIs. Subsequently, the seat allotment begins in June based on their performance, preferences and even how they have performed in the exam. This counseling session is the most important part of the whole JEE Curriculum because this is where the student’s fate lies as to where he/she will be landing up in terms of the college.
