JEE Main Normalisation Formula

After compiling the raw marks, the NTA applies the normalisation formula to get the percentile scores of a candidate for each subject – Maths, Physics, and Chemistry as well as the total. The highest score of each session will get the same percentile of 100 which is ideal. The percentile score has been used for the preparation of the JEE Main merit list. The percentile scores will be calculated up to 7 decimal places to avoid ties amongst candidates with the same scores.

The JEE Main percentile score obtained by a candidate is determined only after applying normalisation to the marks obtained by a candidate. JEE Main Percentile scores indicate the percentage of candidates who have scored equal to or below that particular percentile in the examination. A percentile score is measured on a scale of 100 to 0 for each session of examinees. The formula to calculate JEE Mains marks vs percentile is 

JEE-Main-2021-Marks-vs-percentile

JEE Main 2022 Normalisation Process: Tie Breaker Guidelines

The following comes into effect when two or more candidates obtain equal percentile scores. The inter-se merit will be determined according to the following rules in case of a tie.

  • Candidates obtaining a higher Percentile Score in Mathematics will be ranked higher
  • If a tie still exists, the candidate with a higher Percentile Score in Physics will be given the higher rank
  • If a tie still exists, the candidate obtaining a higher Percentile Score in Chemistry will get the higher rank
  • If a tie still exists, candidates older in age will be given preference

The JEE Main 2022 result will be released separately for each session (February, March, April and May). The best score of the two sessions will be taken into consideration for candidates who appeared in both sessions. The merit list will be prepared on the final scores and ranks announced based on the same.

Hello, The window will open and you will be able to correct some fields. To help you, I am attaching a link that will give you information in detail about various aspects of correction and correction window that is provided by NTA to applicants. https://www.shiksha.com/engineering/articles/jee-ma...Hello, The window will open and you will be able to correct some fields. To help you, I am attaching a link that will give you information in detail about various aspects of correction and correction window that is provided by NTA to applicants. https://www.shiksha.com/engineering/articles/jee-main-correction-blogId-19439
Some fields of data are not correctable but some are. When the window opens, NTA will invariably announce it via news items in different newspapers about the same. You then need to log in using your existing id/ pw and go ahead with correction. It's very simple and user-friendly utility and I am sure that you will be able to effect changes they you desire. Best wishes to you.
