The results were announced once the marks were normalized. The normalization process takes place to help reduce any form of doubts in the answer paper and if a certain set of questions were too easy for some so that all candidates have an equal difficulty level of the questionnaire. The following is a guide to use as your to score converter.

The National Testing Agency normalizes the scores and marks of the students across the different exams held all over the country based on the relative performance of everyone who appeared in the exam. The marks of everyone who appeared for the exam are converted into a scale of 0 to 100 for each exam. Once this is done, the scores of the candidates are compared and their scores across different sessions of exams. This process is similar to a lot of other large scale educational selection tests which are conducted in India. After the normalization has been completed the National Testing Agency makes percentile scores for all the candidates of the exam.

JEE Main Percentile rank calculator is made according to the relative performance of all the students who sat for the exam. The marks of all the student are converted into a scale ranging from 0 to 100 for each session. These JEE main percentile rank calculators show the percentage of students who have scored equal or less than the percentile provided by the agency. Which means that the topper of the exam will get percentile of 100, so all the marks between the highest and lowest marks are converted into proper percentiles.

The JEE Main percentile rank calculator scores are calculated to a maximum of seven decimal places to avoid having any two candidates at the same percentile and to effectively reduce ties. The method for calculating the percentile scores is done by multiplying the number of students who appeared for the exam with scores equal to or less than the student who’s percentile is being calculated; with hundred. This amount is divided by the total number of candidates who sat for the exam. The JEE Main percentile result calculator should be used to find the percentile of a student should not be considered as his percentage as it not the same because the percentage is directly linked to the marks obtained.

There are a few ways to resolve ties related to the ranking system of the National Testing Agency. In case of Joint Entrance Examination, the students who have obtained more marks in mathematics get preference in case of a tie. If these two students have the same marks for mathematics then subjects like physics and chemistry are checked in that order. If by any chance the students have the same marks for all these subjects then students who are older are preferred over the younger ones.

The National Testing Agency uses the JEE Main rank calculator to get the percentile of the students and then tabulates them for further sorting. It is important to understand the process of calculating percentile, and it’s very important to not confuse percentage with percentile.
