Indian Institute of Space Science & Technology admissions are purely on the basis of JEE Advance. The institute will actually create a rank list and if we are in that rank list we would be very mush eligible for participating in the counselling and we have good cut-off marks and satisfying all the criteria then we are eligible for admissions.
