JEE MAIN 2020 NEWS
NATIONAL LEVEL ONLINE TEST
With JEE Main 2020 being an online test conducted in multiple sessions, it is most likely that difficulty level of examination may differ from candidate to candidate. See JEE Main Paper Analysis
To ensure that balance, normalization of marks is enforced for the purpose of ranking.The big question is How are the scores calculated to arrive at the ranks?
NTA, the conducting body of the exam has announced all the relevant details of the normalization and how ranks & scores are calculated.Check JEE Main Cutoff
Percentile Scores are based on the relative performance of all those who appear for the exam. Technically, the marks scored are modified into a scale ranging from 100 to 0 for each session of examinees. The Percentile Score indicates the percentage of students that have scored Equal to or Below (same or lower raw scores) that particular Percentile in that examination. Hence, the highest scorer (topper) from each session will get same percentile of 100 which is desirable.
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.

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.
