Sixty-nine of the top 100 JEE-Advanced rank-holders have secured a seat in the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay, continuing the trend of past several years. Of these, 68 have chosen Computer Science Engineering while one has opted for "Engineering Physics".

According to statistics available with the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA), 93 top candidates had chosen IIT Bombay as their first preference, and 69 of them made the cut in the first round of seat allocation for the IITs. Twenty-eight candidates among the top 100 have got admission in IIT Delhi and three in IIT Madras.

Last year, 62 of the top 100 Joint Entrance Exam-JEE (Advanced) rank-holders got into IIT-Mumbai, up from 58 in 2020. Sixty-two candidates among the top 100 had joined IIT Bombay in 2019 while the number was 59 in 2018. IIT-B remains the first choice among the top 500 JEE-Advanced rankers too — 173 of them have found a seat in IIT-Bombay, 127 have got into IIT-Delhi. IIT-Madras, IIT-Kanpur and IIT-Kharagpur all have fewer than 50 from among the top 500 candidates.

The JEE-Advanced was conducted on August 28 and the result was declared on September 11. JEE-Main, which is the admission test for engineering colleges across the country, is the qualifying exam for JEE-Advanced.
