Cut off set at 75% in 12 standard for admission in NIT:
With the government notifying changes in the eligibility conditions for admission to the National Institutes of Technology, students in the general category who score below 75 per cent in the Class-12 board examinations will no longer be able to join NITs irrespective of their JEE (Mains) performance.

The changes will be applicable from the next academic session itself.

With this change, the NITs will follow the eligibility criteria followed by the IITs. The eligibility criterion for admission to the IITs is 75 % in Class-12 for general candidates.
