Procedure for JEE Main Ranks
National Testing Agency will announce the rank list after the JEE Main result 2021 April is announced. The reason is that many candidates will appear for both the exams – JEE Main January and April. The JEE Main 2021 rank/ merit list will be prepared based on the percentile score of the candidate. So, to calculate the percentile score, in the case where the candidate has appeared for both the exam, the better of the two scores will be considered. So how will the score be used by NTA to prepare the JEE Main common rank list? The details are given below.
Appearing in JEE Main 2021 January OR April? Scores of the respective January OR April test will be used.
Appearing in both JEE Main 2021 January and JEE Main April 2021? The better of the two scores will be used. So it means that if the score for JEE Main April is more than January or vice versa, it will be used. The lower score will be ignored.
How will be the JEE Main 2021 score calculated?
The JEE Main score 2021 for Paper-1 and Paper-2 will be calculated differently. Mentioned below is the procedure for the calculation for both the papers.
Score of JEE Main = Number of correct answers x 4 – number of incorrect answers x 1
How is Candidate's Percentile Score for JEE Main paper-1 Calculated?
The percentile score will be the normalized score for JEE Main 2021 (instead of the raw marks of the candidate). The JEE Main 2021 percentile scores will be calculated up to 7 decimal places. NTA will use the following method to calculate the percentile score of a candidate:-->
100 * Number of candidates appeared in the ‘Session’ with raw score ‘Equal To Or Less’ than the candidate/Total number of the candidates appeared in the ‘Session'.
Rank List Preparation for JEE Main 2021 for Paper-1

- Candidates with the higher percentile score obtained in Mathematics will be given a better rank.
- If the tie still remains unresolved the candidates with higher percentile score in Physics will be awarded a better rank.
- If the tie still remains unresolved the candidates with the higher percentile score in Chemistry will be awarded a better rank.
- In case the tie is still not resolved, then the candidates older in age to be preferred.

Questions related to JEE Main
Id qualified jee with 62 percentile, is there a seat available in any b. tech govt college for direct admission?
Almost all the admission processes are over of the year 2020. And as we all know that jee mains score is only valid for a year. Jee mains 2021 is a month away, so I would suggest you to appear for it again because right now you are too late to take admission in any college and in few months next session would start so this is the only option left according to me.
can i change my catagory from general to ews before jossa counselling....?bcoz i dont have garuntee of issuing ews at that time so i mention general catogary in my registration of jee mains..? plz guide me....
Unfortunately not because at the time of JOSAA registration, JOSAA automatically takes your data from JEE-Main and JEE-Advance so your category cannot be changed at that point of time but at this point of time you can wait till the attempt of May 2021 which is the last attempt of JEE-Main 2021. What I want to suggest you is, If you don't have your reserved category certificate for EWS category right now then you can submit the undertaking which declares that you will submit the original and valid caste certificate later on at the time of admission. You can download the undertaking from the official portal of NTA, for which link is also given below :-
When you visit on the above link you will find a PDF and on page no.9 there is undertaking format which you have to download and after filling it you have to upload it on the place of category certificate in the JEE-Main 2021 Application form.
But if by that time you will not upload the certificate then you will be considered under General category and then the seat will be allotted to you under General/Unreserved category.
For complete details about JOSAA counselling kindly check out the link given below :-

differentiate the difficult level of neet, jee mains,jee advance
JEE and NEET are two completely different examinations, so comparing them is quite difficult.
Jee main is gateway to engineering colleges including NITs, IIITs, CFTIs while NEET is the gateway to medical colleges for MBBS, BDS, ayush courses and veterinary i.e BVSc . In jee main, questions are asked from physics, chemistry and maths while in NEET questions are asked from physics, chemistry and Biology.
As far as difficulty level of the question is concerned JEE MAIN is TOUGHER than neet.
This is because,
In jee main both breadth and depth of questions is covered, I mean you will see variety of questions and many tricky ones are asked as well , but in neet only breadth or variety of questions are there but these are generally formula based, question of very high difficulty level is not asked and overall paper in general remains easy to moderate.
In terms of competition,
neet is tougher because, number of seats in government medical colleges is handful when considered to Engineering colleges. And when someone doesn't get a seat in a govt medical college then generally he has no other options as fee of private medical colleges is insanely high and it can be up to around 1 crore unlike engineering where even if you don't perform very well, you still have choice of decent private colleges at affordable fee.
Coming to JEE advanced, it is conducted by IITs.
JEE advanced is the toughest when it comes to level of difficulty.
This is because,
In JEE advanced questions single concept questions are rarely asked ,questions are a mix of two or more concepts which makes them very tricky and to solve them you need to have deep understanding of the concepts. Also in JEE advanced you have MCQs having more than one correct options and its paper pattern keeps changing a bit every year which makes it challenging
So, in Short, in terms of level of difficulty:-
JEE ADVANCED > JEE MAIN > NEET
I hope that you find this helpful

should I have to pay fee in iit s after qualified in jee entrance
Yes, after you qualify jee advance and get admission in one of the iit's, then as a normal college would charge fees, you have to also pay the fees to study at an iit. However there are tuition fee waivers for students whose family income is low and also for obc, sc and st category students. While the general category students have to pay the complete fees. Students also take up education loans to pay their fees. B. Tech at an iit would cost cost a general student around 1.5-2 lakhs per annum.
