Cut-off marks for the 'JEE Main 2015' offline paper may be decreased, say the experts.

The experts are of the view that the relatively tough question paper set up for this year’s JEE Main, may lead to a drop in the cut-off between 105 and 110 marks. Last year, the CBSE had made 115 marks as the JEE cut-off for open category, they point out.
The JEE Main, conducted on Saturday across 150 cities in India, would decide the fate of the students who are competing for admissions to the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and National Institutes of Technology (NITs).

Most students found Mathematics the toughest this time. Students said, they had to spend about one hour each on physics and chemistry, as these papers were lengthier. This gave most students less time to write their mathematics paper, usually considered the toughest paper in JEE Mains.

About 13 lakh candidates wrote the 'JEE Main 2015’ in offline mode on Saturday. The online mode is scheduled for April 10 and 11.
