If two or more candidates secure the same marks in JEE Advanced 2021, then a tie-breaking criterion is followed, where the candidate with higher positive marks will be given a better rank. If the tie still exists, then a higher rank is given to the candidate who has obtained higher marks in Mathematics. If the tie is still there, then the candidate with higher marks in Physics will be given a better rank. If after this, there is still a tie, then the same rank shall be given.
The seats in IITs will be allotted to the candidates through a Joint Seat Allocation process. All the candidates who have secured a rank in JEE Advanced 2021 will be able to participate in JoSAA 2021 counselling. The students will have to first register and then fill in their preferential choices of institutes and courses.
