The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) announced the results of Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Mains on 27th April. As the result was declared, the cut-off saw a drop from last year, coming down to 105 from 115.
The JEE Mains 2015 cut off is important for students seeking to appear for the JEE Advanced, as only those who clear the Mains cut off can sit for the Advanced. Once the JEE Advanced has been cleared, students can get admitted to IITs and Indian School of Mines (ISM).
The cut-off for the entrance exam has basically lowered this year because of the tough paper conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).
The student to obtain maximum marks in the JEE Main hails from Indore and has scored an extraordinary score of 336 out of 360. Second, is a student from Faridabad, scoring 325 out of 360.
