New Delhi, April 29, 2016: CBSE announced the marks of nearly 12 Lakhs engineering aspirants who wrote JEE Main 2016 on 3rdApril, 2016 (offline format) and on 9th & 10th April, 2016 (online format). This year, 4 students from FIITJEE Punjabi Bagh Centre secured300+ marks out of a total of 360 marks in JEE Main 2016.
As anticipated this year’s cut-off in JEE Main 2016 is 100 marks out of total, 360 marks. Students who cleared the cut-off are now likely to go all out for JEE Advanced 2016 . Like every year students of Delhi have performed exceedingly well, said Mr. Partha Halder, Director & Centre Head of FIITJEE Punjabi Bagh Centre.
Mr. Halder said, “300 marks out of 360 is a major benchmark especially for a competitive exam like JEE Main. Getting above that level in itself is a big achievement. Having 4 such, 300+ scorers from one single centre in Delhi is a very proud moment for us.”
Animesh Bohara & Utkarsh Thukral both scored 310 marks. Animesh, a resident of Pitampura while sharing his thoughts, said “Making it to the IITs is the dream of every Science student. Having worked really hard towards this goal, I was confident of scoring well in JEE Main.” Utkarsh, a resident of Paschim Vihar said, “The teachers at FIITJEE worked diligently on our concepts, making sure we know what we are studying inside out.”
Based on their performance, the students got to know if they are eligible to appear in JEE Advanced 2016 which is scheduled on 22nd May 2016. Around 1 Lakh students under general category (total 2 Lakhs – all categories combined) are expected to qualify for JEE Advanced 2016 which is the gateway to pursue engineering across IIT’s & ISM. Those who have not made it to the 2 Lakhs group will stand a chance to pursue engineering from NIT’s, IIIT’s, Centre & State Funded Engineering Colleges. Under these colleges, more than 40,000 seats across 100+ colleges will be on the offering based on JEE Main marks and Board marks in the ratio of 60% & 40% respectively. A final JEE Main rank list will be compiled & released by CBSE in the last week of June 2016. In the interim JEE Advanced 2016 online registration begins from 29th April and ends on 4th May 2016.
“Year after year, our results have proven our leadership position in mentoring students for engineering and other Scholastic examinations. Our aim is to groom young science enthusiasts who will lay a strong base for science & technology in the country,” said elated Mr. Halder.
Since 1992, FIITJEE is providing valued services in the field of Entrance Exams Preparation and churning out toppers across different competitive entrance exams such as various Olympiads like the Junior Science Olympiad (JSO) International Physics/ Chemistry/Mathematical Olympiad, NTSE (National Talent Search Exam), KVPY (Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana) along with prestigious JEE (Main & Advanced).
“In physics 33% of the questions were difficult, as few were ambiguous due to which students were confused and hence did not attempt; chemistry was moderate and Maths was lengthy but easy. Hence due all these factors, we see the cut-off coming down to 100 marks compared to last year”, said Mr. Partha Halder, Director & Centre Head of FIITJEE Punjabi Bagh Centre.
