Dear Student,

As per the new JEE Main guidelines regarding the eligibility, the students do not need to acquire 75% in their 12th in order to get admission in NITs, GFTIs, or other JEE Main Participating Institute. Earlier, it was mandatory for the candidates to attain 75% aggregate in 12th to get admission to NITs through JEE Main. However, now this eligibility factor has been removed. Hence, you are eligible for NIT admission with your marks.
