As per the JEE Main 2021 official brochure, along with qualifying JEE Advanced exam, candidates are also required to secure either a minimum score of 75% marks in Class 12 Board exams or rank among the top 20 percentile in their qualifying examinations to be eligible for IIT admissions. For SC/ST candidates the qualifying marks would be 65% in the Class 12/ qualifying examination.

However, the authorities may relax the JEE Advanced 2021 eligibility criteria for IIT admissions due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Previous year, for admission to IITs, the HRD minister relaxed the JEE Advanced 2020 eligibility criteria. As per the revised JEE Advanced eligibility criteria, candidates who qualified the entrance test and passed Class 12 examinations were eligible for admissions irrespective of marks obtained.

Earlier, the minister announced the JEE Main 2021 exam dates during one of his live webinars. This year, JEE Main 2021 will be held in four sessions - February, March, April and May. Also, CBSE 2021 Class 10, 12 exams will commence from May 4.
