Supernumerary seats for female candidates

This year, about 14% 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 total number of female-only seats across all IITs is 1,852; whereas the total number of women who have qualified in JEE (Advanced) 2018 is 4,179. So if you are a qualified female candidate, this year you have quite a good chance of getting an IIT seat, and a much better chance than previous years of getting a branch and IIT of your choice! Hence all female candidates are advised to not go 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.
