The NTA had last year announced to withdraw 75% criterion as an one-time measure due to the academic loss caused by COVID-19 pandemic. On January 11, the NTA relaxed eligibility criteria and said that the students who have scored 75% marks or are in the top 20 percentile in Class 12 of any education board will be eligible to seek admission at Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and National Institutes of Technology (NITs).

Such students will also be able to appear for JEE Advanced 2023. On the other hand, Scheduled Caste (SC) and Scheduled Tribe (ST) candidates will require 65% marks, as per the JEE Main eligibility criteria.
