50% Candidates from CBSE Board in IIT JEE Elite Club

The 100 highest scorers in JEE have their own JEE elite club. The ones who are a part of that group are lucky enough to choose their own colleges and streams and don’t have to look for alternates.

This year, in this club, 50 candidates are from CBSE schools, followed by 21 from the Telangana state board — two boards that saw 52% of their students make the cut in JEE (Main).

CBSE schools saw the largest share of students clearing JEE (Main), followed by 11,040 from the Telangana state board.

In the same order, Maharashtra ranked third, with seven candidates from its state board among the top 100 JEE (Main) scorers.

A total of 10,627 students from the Maharashtra state board have cleared the first hurdle and registered for JEE (Advanced), the gateway to IITs.

"Over time, we have seen the maximum students have come from CBSE. But below that, the order has altered," said a JEE (Advanced) official.

In 2013, for instance, over 80% came from just three high school boards: CBSE and the state boards of Andhra Pradesh and Punjab. Next year, a large count of candidates was from five boards - CBSE, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Gujarat.
