What to do once you check JEE Main Result?

You must register and fill the same. But first, you must download and save your JEE Main result and rank card. This will be required for their admissions. If you are are not in the top 2,20,000 candidates shortlisted for JEE Advanced, then you must also plan further for your state counselling processes in addition to applying to the private institutes and universities which take the JEE Main scores for their admission purposes. You must also prepare for the admissions through JoSAA 2017 to the 31 NITs, 20 IIITs and 18 GFTIs that will start tentatively in June.
Difference between percentage and percentile?
Percentage = number obtained / total x 100. Eg 50% in JEE Main = 50/360 x100
Percentile = 100 x Number of candidates in the group with aggregate marks less than the candidates/ Total number of candidates in the group
The category-wise cut-off marks for the top 20 percentile are calculated based on the marks scored by all the "successful" candidates in their respective boards in the particular year. This percentile will be matched with the published top 20 percentile of the board as announced by CBSE. Candidates falling under the top 20 percentile will be eligible for admission.
For more clarity on Percentile, let us take an example of a particular Board where
No of Candidates Registered =13918
No of Candidates Appeared = 13711
Example 1: Percentile of a student who has scored 50% marks in the Board where 2218 candidates have scored below him
Percentile score for 50% marks in the Board will be calculated as 2218 x 100/ 13711 = 16.18
Example 2: Percentile of a student who has scored 60% marks in the Board where 6865 candidates have scored below him
Percentile score for 60% marks in the Board will be calculated as 6865 x 100/ 13711 = 50.07
Example 3: Percentile Score of a student who has scored 90% in the Board where 13615 candidates have scored below him
Percentile score for 90% marks in the Board will be calculated as 13615 x 100 / 13711 = 99.30
If one checks the percentile for 50% is different. It is 16.18 in the above examples. Similarly60% as well as 90% also have different percentile of 50.07 and 99.30 respectively.
What subjects will be taken into consideration for calculation of percentile?
The five subjects will be taken into account for calculation of percentile of qualifying examination marks for paper 1 (B.E./B. Tech.)of JEE (Main) which are:
Any one of (Chemistry, Biology, Biotechnology, Technical Vocational Subject
Any other subject
Note: If a candidate has appeared in six subjects in the qualifying examination, the better of the fifth or sixth will be considered.
For calculation of percentile of qualifying examination marks, for paper 2 (B. Arch./B. Planning) of JEE (Main), the marks obtained in following subjects will be considered:
Other four subjects.
