How to calculate JEE Main Result (or rank) using answer keys
After conclusion of the entrance exam, the exam conducting body will likely release the JEE Main 2019 answer key and OMR sheets. Using these items, the candidates can calculate their probable scores and in turn assess their chances of getting admission to a institute or course of their choice. When calculating probable scores, the candidates must strictly follow the marking scheme of the exam as outlined in JEE Main 2019 exam pattern.
Marking Scheme of JEE Main 2019
For every correct answer the candidate will be awarded 4 marks
In case of incorrect attempt, 1 mark will be deducted
Using the OMR sheets, the candidate will be able to calculate the total number of correct and incorrect attempts. Next calculate the total positive and negative marks. The total score can be found by deducting the total negative marks from the total positive marks.
Total positive marks = (Total correct attempts) x 4
Total negative marks = (Total incorrect attempts) x 1
Total JEE Main Score = Total positive marks – Total negative marks
How is inter-se merit determined?
In such cases where two or more candidates score equal marks, their inter-se merit will be determined as per the guidelines given below:
Rank list for admission to B.Tech courses
The candidate with higher marks in mathematics in JEE Main 2019 will be ranked higher in the rank list
If deadlock remains, it will be decided based on marks obtained in physics, with one with higher marks placed higher in the JEE Main 2019 rank list
In the next step, the ratio of positive and negative marks will be considered. The candidate who has a higher absolute value will be ranked higher
If the candidates are still tied at this stage, they will be awarded the same rank
Rank list for admission to B.Arch/B. Planning courses
The candidate with higher marks in Aptitude test ( Paper II) will be ranked higher
Next marks obtained in Drawing paper will be considered. Candidate with higher marks will be place higher.
If tie remains, the ratio of positive and negative marks will be taken, with one with higher ratio ranked higher
Finally, if there is still a tie, the candidates will be given the same rank
JEE Main 2019 Cutoff
An important information included on the result is the qualifying cutoff of JEE Main 2019. Only those candidates who meet or score above the JEE Main 2019 qualifying cutoff will be eligible to appear in JEE Advanced 2019, or else they will be disqualified. Please note that the cutoff of JEE Main is prepared based on factors like number of applicants, availability of seats, and also past trends.
The qualifying JEE Main cutoff 2019 will only be available after declaration of result, so candidates may refer the cutoffs of previous years’ to get an idea how much they might need to score.
JEE Main 2018 Qualifying Cutoff

JEE Main Rank List 2019
Candidates will be able to check their ranks along with the JEE Main 2019 result. It must be noted that exam authorities don’t release separate JEE Main merit lists as such; that being said things might change in this session with NTA being in charge of the exam. The JEE Main result 2019 will contain both the category-wise and general rank of the candidate. The rank list is an important component of counselling process, as seats allotment by JoSAA is based on it.
JEE Main Marks Vs Rank
Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA), the sole body responsible for joint seat allocation, releases the seat allotment result in the form of ranks only. Now many candidates who plan to appear in JEE Main 2019 might have a specific score in their mind that they are targeting. But how do these candidates know the corresponding rank for that score. One way of finding out the rank for a particular score is get in tough with candidates who have themselves appeared in the exam. But it is a tedious exercise, and cannot be adopted to find out the corresponding ranks for a whole range of scores. So, in a bid to make the candidates’ job a bit easier, we bring you JEE Main ranks vs marks. While the comparison is not full proof, they are closer to the real thing.
JEE Main Marks Vs Rank

What is the difference between Percentage and Percentile score
Many of us have made the mistake of assuming percentage and percentile to be the same thing, when in fact they are different. For example, one of the eligibility criteria for admission at the NITs, IIITs, and GFTIs is candidates must be placed inside the top 20 percentile of respective boards (10+2 exam) to be eligible for admission. Now unless the candidates knows what percentile means, there are chances mistakes may happen. That is why we have thought it prudent to explain the difference between the two terms.
Difference between percentage and percentile
Percentage = marks obtained / total marks x 100
Percentile = 100 x Number of candidates in the group with aggregate marks less than that obtained by the candidate/ Total number of candidates in the group
For the purpose of admission, category-wise top 20 percentiles are accepted. This means the top 20 percentile list will be different for general, OBC, ST and PwD categories.
Take for example, if the total number of candidates who have registered in a particular board is 14111 and total number of candidates who appeared in the entrance exam is 13991, then, then the percentile will be calculated as:
Percentile of a student who has scored 50% marks in the Board where 2250 candidates have scored below him
Percentile score for 50% marks in the Board will be calculated as 2250 x 100/ 13991 = 16.081
Subject-combination for calculating top 20 percentile
The subject combination for calculating top 20 percentile will vary depending on whether the candidate wants to get admission in B.Tech courses or B.Arch courses.
A. Subject-combination for B.Tech courses
For calculating top 20 percentile for candidates belonging to this category, the following five subject combination will be accepted.
Any one of (Chemistry, Biology, Biotechnology, Technical Vocational Subject
Any other subject
Note: In a candidate has studies 6 subjects in the qualifying exam, in such cases the better of the fifth or sixth will be considered.
B. Subject combination for B.Arch/B.Plan
The following subject combination will be considered for calculating the top 20 percentile for admission to B.Arch/B.Planning courses:
Any other four subjects.
