How to calculate JEE Main Percentile Cut-off?
This year JEE Main will be conducted on multiple days and shifts. Each day will have around 4 shifts, the students often gets confused regarding the marks. The reason for this is that some students will have easy paper while some will have tough [a[er. Hence, to ensure equality in the examination of JEE Main and providing a fair competition to all the students. Hence, to ensure this fairness, the NTA has devised a normalization process for the students. This process will help the students in calculating the percentile score of a candidate appearing in the exam:
- JEE Main Cut-off 2020 = (100- NTA percentile score ) X 869010 /100
- If NTA percentile score is 90.70, JEE Main rank will be (100-90.70 ) X 869010/100 = 80818
- Consider the NTA score of 80.60 then JEE Main 2020 rank = (100-80.60) X 869010 /100. The rank will be 168588.
Normalization Process of NTA
The NTA has released a normalization process to ensure a fair chance to every student who appear for the JEE Main exam in 2020. The students can calculate their normalized marks by applying the above formula. However, the students often get confused regarding the tie-up of the marks of JEE Mains. The National Testing Agency has decided to issue percentile scores up to 7 decimal places to further avoid ties. The students who get higher marks will be available for the selection in any of the colleges according to their ranks. However, to resolve any end of tie-up amongst the students the NTA has given a series of formulas which is as follows:
- Candidates with higher percentile in Mathematics
- Candidates with higher percentile in Physics
- Candidates with higher percentile in Chemistry
- The age of the candidate, the one who will have an age lower will be rejected.
