What is the extended merit list (EML) in IITJEE and of what use is it?
The Extended Merit List (EML) is a list that ranks students who have not qualified for admission into any of the IITs, IT-BHU, Varanasi or ISMU, Dhanbad. The EML uses marks obtained in IITJEE. The EML is used by other prestigious institutes for admission, the cut-offs being relaxed as compared to the ones in place for admission into the above mentioned institutes.
The students who are interested in admission into these institutes, listed below, should contact them directly. None of the IITs are responsible for admission into them.
The institutes covered under the EML are:
- Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology, Thiruvananthapuram
- Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Mohali/Pune/Kolkata/Bhopal/Thiruvananthapuram
- Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology Society, Noida
- Indian Institute of Maritime Studies, Mumbai
The list is subject to change. Please visit the webpage for up-to-date information. All institutes in the EML are excellent in their own fields and comparison with the IITs is unwarranted.
