JEE Main Result – Normalization Process 

JEE Main score normalization process involves the following 3 steps:-

Step 1: Raw Score Calculation

The subject-wise and overall score of the candidates is calculated as per the below-mentioned marking scheme:

Overall Score of JEE Main = (Number of correct responses x 4) – (Number of wrong responses x 1)

Step 2: Percentile Score Calculation

Below, in this article, the percentile calculation process (subject-wise and overall) has been described. In order to avoid the probabilities of ties percentile scores with 7 decimal places are calculated.

Step 3: Factors determined for Tie-breaking 

A tie between the JEE main scores of two or more candidates is a very rare situation. However, NTA has defined a few criteria to break the tie. These criteria are discussed below in this article.

JEE Main Result – Percentile Calculation 

The result of JEE Main 2020 will be announced with the percentile-based NTA score of candidates in each subject (Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics) and one overall (combined) score. Below formula will help test-takers understand the JEE Main result calculation better. 

Formula to calculate NTA percentile

  • Total Percentile (T1P) = 100 X Number of test-takers with a raw score equal to or less than T1 score/ Total number of candidates appeared in April session
  • Physics Percentile (P1P) = 100 X Number of test-takers with a raw score equal to or less than P1 score/ Total number of candidates appeared in April session 
  • Chemistry Percentile (C1P) = 100 X Number of test-takers with a raw score equal to or less than C1 score/ Total number of candidates appeared in April session
  • Mathematics Percentile (M1P) = 100 X Number of test-takers with a raw score equal to or less than M1 score/ Total number of candidates appeared in April session

JEE Main Result – Inter-Se Merit 

In case of a tie between two or more candidates with same Total NTA score, inter-se merit shall be determined as per the below order:-

  • NTA score in Mathematics, followed by
  • NTA score in Physics, followed by
  • NTA score in Chemistry, followed by
  • Candidates with less negative responses, followed by
  • Candidates older in age 

Note- If the tie doesn’t break even after the above criteria, the same rank will be given to the candidates.
