New Delhi: After increasing the total number of candidates to be considered for JEE Advanced 2018, it has now been decided to forgo the 'positive mark' criteria as well. On 7 October 2017, the official website for JEE Advanced 2018, launched on 28 September, carried an update saying, 'Candidates should be among the top 2,24,000 (including all categories) by scoring positive marks in Paper-1 of JEE. (Main)-2018.' In 2017, the Board allowed only 2, 20, 000 candidates who had secured positive marks in the JEE Main exam. By adding 4000 more candidates and going without the 'positive mark' criteria, there's going to be a tough competition.
