According to the study, students from urban areas comprised a large share of both registered and successful JEE candidates. More than half the candidates who qualified came from 11 cities. And 57% of selected students graduated from schools affiliated to the CBSE. The study also indicated that students from high income families had a better chance of clearing the notoriously difficult JEE, with students in the highest income bracket registering a success rate of 10.3%, almost 8 points higher than those from families in the lowest income slab. These results suggest that access to coaching remains a significant factor in determining a students chances of JEE success, which places students from poor families at a disadvantage. When the HRD ministry moved to revamp the JEE, it was ostensibly to prevent students from gaming the test and to make the IITs more inclusive and diverse. The analysis appears to suggest that the government has more work to do on both fronts.
