NTA JEE Main Normalization Process
Because the JEE Main examination is conducted in various sessions, the level of difficulty also varies and to deal with this, the process of normalization is used by authorities. The normalized JEE Main scores released by NTA indicate the percentage of candidates whose scores are equal or below the scores of the candidate who scored the highest in that particular session. The formula used for calculation NTA scores is shown below:
Formula - (100 x number of candidates appeared in the session with raw score equal to or less than the candidate) / total number of candidates appeared in that session
Candidates may note that the normalized NTA score is not the same as that of the percentage of marks obtained in the examination.
JEE Main Result 2021 - Percentile Calculation
The National Testing Agency calculates the JEE Main for the purpose of percentile for individual subjects separately (Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics) as well as in the combined format using the normalization formula as shown below.
Calculating JEE Main Percentile
Total Percentile (T1P):
(100 x No. of candidates from the session with raw score equal to or less than T1 score) / Total No. of candidates appeared in the session
Mathematics Percentile (M1P)
(100 x No. of candidates appeared from the session with raw score equal to or less than than M1 score in Mathematics)
/ Total No. of candidates appeared in the session
Physics Percentile (P1P)
(100 x No. of candidates appeared from the session with raw score equal to or less than P1 score in Physics) / Total No. of candidates appeared in the session
Chemistry Percentile (C1P):
(100 x No. of candidates appeared from the session with raw score equal to or less than C1 score in Chemistry) / Total No. of candidates appeared in the session
Tie Breaking in JEE Main Result
The JEE Main result 2021 will be prepared based upon the performance of candidates in the January or April session of the exam. There are times when two or more candidates get the same NTA score and hence, in-ter se merit has to be calculated by considering certain factors in the following sequence:
NTA score in Mathematics
NTA score in Physics
NTA score in Chemistry
Candidates with less number of negative marks
Candidate older in age
Difference between JEE Main percentage and percentile score
When it comes to the JEE Main percentage and percentile, many students get confused and take them in common, while they are totally two different aspects. The JEE Main percentage is the result of absolute marking while the percentile is calculated through relative marking.
Calculating Percentage: (100 x Marks obtained by candidate) / Total marks
Calculating JEE Main Percentile: (100 x Number of candidates in the session with aggregate marks less than that obtained by the candidate) / Total number of candidates appeared in that session
JEE Main 2021 Cutoff
Along with the announcement of JEE Main result, the National Testing Agency shall announce the JEE Main cutoff which is the minimum score that a candidate should have in order to qualify the entrance examination. In order to be eligible for JEE Main and also to apply for admission in top engineering institutes like National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) or Government Funded Technical Institutes (GFTIs), candidates should have a score equal to or above the JEE Main cutoff.
JEE Main Rank List
Along with announcing the JEE Main result, the authorities will also release the JEE Main 2021 rank list which reflects the respective ranks secured by candidates in the entrance examination. Candidates will be allotted All India ranks (AIR) as well as the category specific ranks for JEE Main which will be prepared based upon the JEE Main percentile obtained by candidates. Talking about the JEE Main ranks, many students get confused with the combination of marks and ranks simultaneously. Rank obtained in JEE Main is important because candidates are allotted JEE Main participating institutes based on the rank obtained by them in the entrance test.

I got 57percentile in jee and I need mechanical engineering colleges plz help us and also 20 percentile in. MHT cet so I need a college pz tell me according to jee mains college and base on cet also colleges
according to the analysis of previous years cutoff, getting a top college with that mark in jee is really tough. so please dont just look for colleges that give you seat only based on jee marks. so use that as an additional advantage.
apply for mechanical in management quota. you will surely get it. just use the jee mark as advantage. if you have good enough marks in 12th, you will definitely get in management quota. there are less students in our mech branch. so getting seat is easy.
