Seat allocation is determined based on this rank through the JoSSA Counselling process. Hence no you will not be eligible for this

if I score less marks or I failed in pre boards in one subject in class 12 ,so will it effect my eligibility criteria for jee mains and jee advanced for admission in IIST?


Your marks in Preboard doesn't matter at all. As you are awarded certificate /marksheet for your board examination only and not pre board.


It doesn't matter whether you get low marks in pre board or even fail in it, it's not going to affect your eligibility for jee advanced or   IIST  or anything else.

But still prepare well for pre boards so that eventually you can perform well in your  boards .

Considering pandemic, there's one time measure for students who had passed 12th in 2021 & 2020.

  • For 2021 passed :- Those 2021 passed students who had qualified jee main 2021 and had registered for jee advanced 2021 but couldn't appear in the examination are directly eligible for jee advanced 2022 without appearing in jee main 2022.

  • For 2020 passed :- 2020 12th passed students are also eligible for  jee advanced 2022 after qualifying jee main 2022 provided they have appeared in only one of 2020 or 2021 jee advanced or none of them.
