JEE Main Marks vs Percentile – With NTA announcing normalization for JEE Main, the most commonly searched term by engineering aspirants has been the JEE Main marks vs percentile. This is because of the fact that NTA has specified the normalization procedure but has not shed any light on the specific data that have been used to arrive at the JEE Main percentile versus marks. Since ranks will be derived on the basis of the percentile, students are searching for the percentile they will obtain for the marks they expect in JEE Main. In this article detailing the JEE Main percentile vs marks, we look at the expected range based on the past trends and the normalization formula used by NTA. Check the details of the JEE Main marks vs percentile below in this article.

JEE Main Normalization:

Normalization is incorporated to equalise the difficulty levels of the exam when it is conducted in multiple sessions. So NTA will declare the percentile scores obtained after normalization. Percentile scores indicates the percentage of candidates that have scored equal to or below that particular percentile in that examination and this is generally from a scale of 100 to 0 for each session of examinees.

NTA will compile the raw marks of the students and normalize the same to arrive at the percentile scores for each subject – Maths, Physics and Chemistry as well as total. The highest score of each session will get the same percentile of 100 which is ideal. The marks obtained in between the highest and lowest scores will also be converted to percentiles. This percentile score will be used for the preparation of the merit lists. It is to be noted that the percentile scores will be calculated up to 7 decimal places such that bunching effect can be reduced as can ties amongst candidates with the same scores.

The detailed process with examples for the JEE Main 2019 normalization is explained here

Tie breaker guidelines:  these guidelines come into effect when two or more candidates obtain equal percentile scores. The inter-se-merit- is determined in the order given as follows

  • Candidates obtaining higher Percentile Score in Mathematics will be ranked higher.

  • Candidates obtaining higher Percentile Score in Physics will be given the higher rank

  • Candidates obtaining higher Percentile Score in Chemistry will get the higher rank

  • Candidates older in age will be given preference

The result of JEE Main 2019 is separate for the January and April sessions. The best of the two scores will be taken for candidates who have attempted both the sessions. The merit list will be prepared on the final scores and ranks announced on the basis of the same.

Hello Sijo,

JEE main is not one and only entrance exam to get seat in Aeronautical Engineering.Ofcourse if you appear for JEE main and JEE advanced and  qualify, you will get a seat in prestigious institutes like IITs/NITs/IIITs.Apart from JEE there are other private institutes or deemed universities who conduct their own entrance exam for various courses including aeronautical engineering.Also JEE main score in accepted by many colleges.You can choose any way to get in Aeronautical Engineering depending upon your choice of college.

diploma students doing jee preparation

Siddhi Shenoy 11th Nov, 2019

Hello aspirant,

A diploma student who has completed his degree or is in his final year, is eligible to apply for JEE Main. But he won't be able to pursue admission in NIT. The candidate must clear JEE Mains after which he has to clear JEE advanced.

There are 2 types of papers. Paper 1 is for B.Tech (Engineering) and paper 2 is for B.Arch (Architecture). For paper 1, the syllabus includes Physics, chemistry and mathematics. The paper will contain 30 MCQs for each of the subjects mentioned.

Refer to the syllabus of class 11th and 12th for PCM. Also, go through some reference books and try solving as many MCQs as possible. Try looking for short cut methods to solve sums in order to save time. You can also refer YouTube for tricks to solve difficult sums. Also try not to use guessing game as it might affect your marks. Go for an answer only if you are sure of it.

Good luck.


I pass 12th in Maharashtra board and my village is in karnataka so I have SC cast certificate so that certificate is work in jee counselling

Sharon Rose Student Expert 11th Nov, 2019

Hello Dilip,

A candidate belonging to reserved category must provide a caste certificate issued by the competent authority in the prescribed format by the Government of India.As long as you have a valid certificate you don't need to worry.If your present caste certificate is in correct order then you are good to carry it.And yes, you can provide your caste certificate at the time of JEE main counselling.

I hope this is helpful to you.


I want to clear jee exam what i do

Ronak Gala Student Expert 11th Nov, 2019

Some of the tips that I can give you is stay honest with yourself. Make a schedule for yourself and start following it regularly. Try to solve as many as mcqs and numericals possible especially for physics and maths. And for chemistry, try to read as much as more as you can and also practice mcqs for organic chemistry and numericals for physical chemistry. Take help of good books.

And don't forget to give mock tests. They will help you a lot to make you realize the pattern of the paper and syllabus and accordingly you can find where you lag and what you need to work on.

Best wishes. thankyou.
