Candidates should have scored at least 20 per cent marks in aggregate and at least 5 per cent marks in each of the three subjects in JEE Advanced. For EWS, OBC-NCL candidates, the minimum marks are 18 per cent overall and 4.5 per cent in each subject for SC, ST, and PD students need at least 10 per cent marks in aggregate and 2.5 per cent in each subject in JEE Advanced. Like IITs, IIST has also relaxed the class 12 criteria in which students had to score at least 75 per cent marks. Now, candidates just have to pass the exam.
