JEE Main Marks vs Percentile
JEE Main Marks vs Percentile – National Testing Agency (NTA) has declared the JEE Main 2020 April session exam dates. The exam will now be held from July 18 to 23. NTA has also announced normalization for JEE Main, due to which the most commonly searched term by engineering aspirants has been the JEE Main marks vs percentile. This is because of the fact that although NTA has specified the normalization procedure, it has not shed any light on the specific data that have been used to calculate the JEE Main marks vs percentile. 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 marks vs percentile, 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.
Latest: JEE Main 2020 exam dates announced; to be held on July 18 to 23. Also, JEE Main 2020 image correction facility is now available.
Also check how to calculate your JEE Main rank using your percentile scores.
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 in JEE Main obtained after normalization. Percentile scores indicates the percentage of candidates that have scored equal to or below (same or lower raw scores) that particular percentile in that examination and this is generally from a scale of 100 to 0 for each session of examinees. Therefore, the higher scorer of each session will end up securing the same percentile of 100 which is desirable.
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 2020 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 is released separately for the January and April sessions. The best of the two scores is 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. Also, candidates may check the marks required for 90 percentile in JEE Main and get a preparation plan.
Details of JEE Main Percentile vs Marks
Candidates may check out the JEE Main scores/marks which land them to a certain JEE Main percentile calculated after normalization as depicted in the table below.

Questions related to JEE Main
can I get 90/100 in chemistry in jee mains if I do only ncert and previous year question paper?
See this is very much harder to study only NCERT and previous year question papers and get 90/100 in Chemistry in JEE Mains Exam. I am not saying it is impossible, if you study and memorize each and every page of NCERT and understand every concept well and practice out last 10 years question papers, then it might be possible.
Else you will have to go through a good book other than NCERT for your JEE Mains preparation.

Feel free to ask doubts in the Comment Section.
I hope this information helps you.
Is government in the favour or zero year or neet jee postponement?
The only thing that government is concerned right now is about health and safety of the students.
Government is helpless, because conducting the JEE and NEET means risking health of more than 20 lakhs students and looking at the current situation when Covid-19 cases are setting record everyday, its highly likely that the exams will get postponed.
In case if any vaccine arrives or the number of cases gets minimized then the exam might take place as per schedule but at present nothing can be said for sure.You cannot control what will happen in future so you should focus on what you can do now and that is preparations for your exam.
I hope this helps.
can I get 90/100 in maths in jee mains if I do rd Sharma n previous years questions??
Yes,it is possible just that you need to remember the concepts used in the questions,and practice as many questions as you can since Jee mains examination is close.
Since you are using only RD Sharma you should practice it thoroughly,and your aim will be easily reached.
Best of luck;
Will JEE Mains sept. be postponed?
the chances are less for the cancellation of the September JEE mains exam tentative dates has already been prepared for all colleges reopening so if these may open then exam will definitely be conducted and some of the exams has already been conducted so there might be less chances for the cancellation but it depends upon the condition of the global crisis, as the unlock process has already been started in the entire India so the dates given for the JEE mains exam are fixed for now and rest decision will be taken by the NTA authorities for that you should be updated with the official website.
BEST OF LUCK.
1)How Many Students are appearing for COMEDK 2020 ? 2)Will COMEDK get postponed again from 19thAug?? 3)With a view that Kcet & comedk being conducted Will JEE main2020 sept & neet 2020 sept exam also be conducted??
As per the information available by the officials approx 72200 people are going to to take the test COMEDK, it is according to the number of registration but depending upon the condition final students who will attend the test will decrease or may be neutral as per the informations or predictions the exam is still going to conduct depending upon the condition of the crisis there are rare chances that it will be cancelled since many of the exams has already been conducted so these top level exam will be conducted with the vision taken by the higher authorities if it will cancel then the consequences will go with the zero session, and definitely if these exams will be conducted so other exams like JEE mains and neet will also be conducted.
Best of luck.
