This year, about 17% of seats in every branch at every IIT have been designated as ‘female-only’ seats (this has been done by creating sufficient supernumerary seats, without any reduction in the number of seats available to non-female candidates).
The result of JEE (Advanced) 2019 was declared on June 14, 2018. A total number of 161,319 candidates appeared in both papers 1 and 2 in JEE (Advanced). A total of 38,705 candidates have qualified.
Of the total 38,705 candidates, who qualified in JEE (Advanced) this year, 5356 are females.
Ms. Shabnam Sahay of Ahmedabad, Gujarat is the top ranked female with CRL 10. Ms Ananya Gupta is IIT Delhi zone topper with CRL 233.
Speaking about the Open House, Prof Sumeet Agarwal, Nodal Officer, JEE (Women) Helpdesk, IIT Delhi, said: “The total number of female-only seats across all IITs is 2,415; whereas the total number of women who have qualified in JEE (Advanced) 2019 is 5,356. For qualified female candidates, this year they have quite a good chance of getting an IIT seat, and a better chance than previous years of getting a branch and IIT of their choice.
Hence All female candidates are advised to not go just by previous years’ closing ranks, but instead fill in as many of their genuine preferences as they can, in order to maximise their chances of getting a high-preference branch and/or campus.”
The Open House is being organised under the aegis of ‘Initiative for Gender Equity and Sensitization (IGES)’, a unit of IITD that was created on March 08, 2018.
