Category-Wise Minimum Qualifying Marks:  

Here is Representation of the National Testing Agency shall exercise the  following Eligibility Process of Normalization that remain an established practice for comparing the Candidates obtained Scores across Multi-Session Papers and is similar to those being adopted in other large Educational Selection Tests conducted in the country.

The National Testing Agency, in order to arrive at Normalization across JEE (Main) 2020 Sections, shall use the Percentile Equivalence.

Percentile Scores: Percentile Scores remain the Scores on the basis of the relative Performance of all those Candidates, who have appeared in the JEE (Main). The NTA will transform the Candidates’ Marks secured in the JEE (Main) 2020 into a scale ranging from 100 to 0 for each session of the Examinees.

The Percentile Score indicates the percentage of the Candidates that have scored EQUAL TO OR BELOW (same or Lower Raw Scores) that particular Percentile in that Examination. Hence, the Topper (Highest Score) of each JEE (Main) Session will be awarded similar Percentile of 100, which is desirable. The Candidates’ Marks obtained in between the Highest and Lowest scores will also be converted to appropriate Percentiles.

The Percentile Score will be the Normalized Score for the Examination (instead of the Raw Marks obtained by each and every candidate) and shall be used for preparation of the Merit / Rank Lists.

The JEE (Main) 2020 Percentile Scores would be calculated up to 7 Decimal places to avoid bunching-effect and reducing Ties in the JEE (Main) Scores.
