JEE Main Percentile vs Marks 2020 | Calculate Percentile Score

JEE Main Percentile vs Marks 2020: The National Testing Agency has successfully conducted the JEE Main 2020 September Examination amid the pandemic while ensuring the students’ safety. Students who appear for the Joint Entrance Examination for the first time are often confused between marks vs percentile in JEE Main 2020. NTA takes the normalisation process into account when preparing the JEE Main Result and rank list. 

The process of normalisation is based on the percentile calculation, which we will learn to calculate here so that you can easily understand the concept. You must have read that NTA considers percentile score over raw marks when preparing the JEE Main rank list. 

In this article, we will learn to calculate percentile based on your predicted marks. Once the answer key for JEE Main is available, you can predict your marks and determine marks vs percentile in JEE Main 2020 out of 300. Get detailed explanation regarding marks vs percentile in JEE Mains 2020 by referring to the expert-backed session below.

Important terms for calculating JEE Main 2020 Percentile Score

First, it is important to know some key terms when calculating the percentile score for JEE Main exam. Refer to the terminologies below to clear the confusion surrounding the concept of marks vs percentile. 

  • Normalisation: As NTA conducts the JEE Main exam in different shifts annually, the agency adopts the normalisation procedure to prepare the rank list. In this process, the agency compares candidates’ scores in different shifts of the exam. 
  • Percentile Score: The terms ‘percentage’ and ‘percentile’ may sound similar but they have a very different meaning. A percentile score of a candidate can be determined based on the relative performance of fellow candidates. The percentile score is calculated up to 7 decimal places to prevent the chances of a tie-breaker scenario. 

How to Calculate JEE Main 2020 Percentile Score

JEE Main 2020 September Examination was conducted between September 1-6, 2020, in two different shifts on each day. As the level of difficulty varies from one shift to another, NTA has adopted the percentile system to ensure equity in assessing the performance of the candidates. 

NTA uses the following formula to calculate the percentile score of JEE Main. 

Where T1, M1, P1 & C1 are raw scores obtained in total, Mathematics, Physics & Chemistry respectively.

JEE Main Marks vs Percentile: Tie-breaker Guidelines

When preparing the JEE Main merit list, the following guidelines are taken into consideration in case two or more candidates obtain equal percentile scores. 

  • Candidates who obtain a higher percentile score in Mathematics will be given ranked higher.
  • In the case of another tie, candidates having a higher percentile score in Physics will be ranked higher.
  • To resolve the further tie, a candidate with a higher percentile score will be ranked higher.
  • If there exists another tie, the senior candidate will be placed higher in rank. 

With the help of the normalisation scheme specified in this article, you can easily calculate the percentile score. Hope this resolved your confusion regarding the concept of marks vs percentile in JEE Mains 2020.
