Calculation/ Normalization Of JEE Main 2021 Scores

NTA Scores are normalized scores across multi-session papers and are based on the relative performance of all those who appeared for the examination in one session. The marks obtained are converted into a scale ranging from 100 to 0 for each session of examinees.

The NTA Score of a Candidate has been calculated as follows:

Normalization Of JEE Main 2021 Scores

The NTA scores for JEE Main 2021 Paper-1, 2A and 2B for all the sessions will be merged together for determining the final exam result and the overall JEE Main 2021 merit list. The best of the four JEE Main scores will be considered.

Candidates should note that the NTA Score of the Total is NOT an aggregate or average of the NTA Score of an individual subject. NTA score is also not the same as the percentage of marks obtained.

In any case, the final ranks of the candidates will be declared after all the sessions (that are February, March, April, and May Sessions of JEE Main 2021) are conducted. For determining the ranks, NTA will consider only the best of the four-session scores in accordance with the policy.

Meanwhile, candidates should also note that there is a great difference between JEE Main percentage and percentile score. They are calculated differently as follows.

  • Calculating JEE Main Percentage: (100 x Marks obtained by candidate) / Total marks
  • Calculating JEE Main Percentile 2021: (100 x Number of candidates in the session with aggregate marks less than that obtained by the candidate) / Total number of candidates who appeared in that session

What Happens If There Is A Tie?

If there is a tie between two candidates then the authorities as per their policy will sort out any confusion. Basically, the ranks will be determined as follows:

  • First preference: A candidate with higher marks in Mathematics will receive a higher rank.
  • Second preference, a candidate with more marks in Physics will be issued a higher rank than others.
  • Third preference, a candidate who has a higher percentile score in Chemistry will be ranked higher.
  • If the tie is not broken still then the date of birth of the candidate will be considered. Here, whoever is older will be ranked higher.
  • If the tie is still not broken then ultimately the same ranks are given.
