JEE and CBSE Improvement Exam

Its official now that students opting for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) can improve their CBSE result by applying for CBSE Improvement Exam ONLY IF the student has applied for all the five subject.

NOTE : CBSE has excepted the students who have filled for four subjects for CBSE Improvement exam 2014, however this exemption will not be there next year for 2015.

If you already filled the form for selected subjects and wish to fill for all subjects, you have to send your request for remaining subjects to the board for improvement along with the balance fee to the concerned regional office. Such candidates should send the demand draft (DD) of the balance fee with the details on the reverse regarding their name and address, earlier DD number, date, amount and issuing bank and roll number of 2012 examination along with the forwarding letter stating the subjects already applied for and the remaining subjects to be offered for improvement of performance examination, 2013 to the regional office.

In respect of those students who passed their Board exam for the first time in 2012, the eligibility criteria for
joining any of the IITs or ISM Dhanbad will be 60% marks in their 12th Board or equivalent (55% for
SC/ST/PwD candidates). For those candidates who appear in their Board exams for the first time in 2013, the
eligibility criteria will remain ‘top 20 percentile of the successful candidates’ in their Boards, category-wise. This
will be a one-time exception for JEE (Advanced) 2013 only.
For those students who passed their 12th Board exams in 2012 but are re-appearing in the 2013 Board exams
with a view to improve their performance, 60% rule will apply if they use their 2012 Board exam results and ‘top
20 percentile’ rule will apply if they use their 2013 Board exam results. This too will be a one-time exception for
JEE (Advanced) 2013 only.

      your new marksheet will have only the new subjects in it, so if you dont appear or fail, they will show absent or fail. Although the best marks of two marksheets are counted.
