Earlier, candidates have to secure either minimum score of 75 percent marks in Class 12 board exams or rank among the top 20 percentile in their qualifying examinations.
Now, those who have qualified the Class 12 exams will be eligible for admissions to the IITs irrespective of their score.
The National Testing Agency (NTA) on Friday declared the result of JEE Main with 24 students scoring 100 percentile in the engineering entrance exam.
Telangana has maximum 100 percentile scorers at 8, Delhi is at the second spot with 5 hundred percentile scorers followed by Rajasthan (4), Andhra Pradesh (3), Haryana (2) and one candidate each from Gujarat and Maharashtra.
