The common rank list (CRL) cut-off in JEE Advanced 2023 increased significantly to 23.89%, a significant jump from last year’s lowest cut-off of 15.28% since 2012. Similarly, all other categories, including General-EWS, OBC, SC, and ST, also witnessed higher cut-offs than the previous year.
Professor Bishnupada Mandal, the Organising Chairperson of JEE-Advanced 2023, explained that the increased cut-offs were due to a change in the exam pattern. More questions were introduced without negative markings, allowing candidates to score higher. Consequently, the cut-off scores naturally rose. This shift highlights the significance of adapting to new challenges and mastering the updated examination format.
