Overall Score of JEE Main = (Number of correct responses x 4) – (Number of wrong responses x 1)
Step 2: Percentile Score 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.
