National Testing Agency will be using Normalization Procedure based on Percentile Score for JEE Main Result 2019. Till 2018, the candidates were given ranks based on their raw score. For the very first time, candidates will be awarded percentile scores through normalization process. Normalization is a scientific practice for comparing candidate scores across multi session papers conducted in India. Candidates can check their expected rank with the help of JEE Main Rank Predictor using their percentile.

JEE Main has conducted in many sessions generally two sessions per day. Different sets of question papers are set with approximate equal difficulty level but it is not realistic that different papers will have exact same difficulty level. As a result some candidates might get to attempt slightly tougher paper than others and score lower marks than others. In an attempt to overcome this affair, NTA will use Normalization to make sure no candidate is benefitted or disadvantaged by the variable difficulty level of the exam. As difficulty level is a subjective matter Normalization will be used. National Testing Agency shall use the percentile equivalence for Normalization across sections.
The Percentile score will be normalized score for the examination and shall be used for preparing the merit list in lieu of the raw score ranking.
The Percentile Formula is used to allot percentile to candidates based on their raw score with given number of examinees in the respective session. The NTA will use given percentile formula for JEE Main Result:
100 X Number of candidates appeared in the ‘session’ with raw score Equal to or Less than the candidate
Total number of the candidates appeared in the ‘Session’
Suppose in a session of 2500 candidates, Candidate A obtains the highest raw score of 75. So the percentile awarded to him according to the formula will be-
100 X 2500=100
Therefore, the highest scorer always gets 100th Percentile that also means 100% candidates have scored equal to or less than 75 raw score and 0% of candidates have scored more than 75 raw score.
NTA SCORE –ALL FOUR SESSIONS COMBINED
|Roll no.||Raw Score||Percentile Score||D.O.B|
Normalization and Percentile Score are already good measures to lessen the occurrences of tie. National Testing Agency will award percentile scores up to 7 decimal places to further avoid ties. Since the number of applicants are in lakhs the probability of tie increases. Hence to resolve the tie, if any, the merit shall be determined in order of preference as follows:
The above sequence shall be adopted till the tie is broken. The Final Ranking/Merit would be prepared after resolving the ties.
JEE Main takes place twice a year. Candidates can appear in both attempts to improve their score. If a candidate appears in both the attempts, best of the two NTA score will be considered while preparing the Merit list. Only the total percentile will be the deciding factor for best of the two irrespective of individual subject percentile. The merit list is prepared after deciding the best of the two of candidates.
