National Testing Agency will announce the rank list after the result for JEE Main 2019 April is announced. The reason is that many candidates will have appeared for both the exams – JEE Main January and April. In such a case the better of the two scores will be considered and the ranks prepared. So how will the score be used by NTA to prepare the JEE Main common rank list? The details are given below.

 

Appeared in JEE Main 2019 January OR JEE Main 2019 April? Scores of the respective January OR April test will be used

Appeared in both JEE Main 2019 January and JEE Main April 2019? 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 is the JEE Main 2019 score calculated?

  • Score of JEE Main = Number of correct answers x 4 – number of incorrect answers x 1

Rank List Preparation for JEE Main 2019
Ranks will be prepare on the basis of the scores of the candidates in JEE Main 2019 as mentioned above. However, there may be instances where more than two candidates may score the same marks. In such a case the inter-se-merit guidelines will be enforced to allot the rank.

 

Candidates with the higher marks obtained in Mathematics will be given the better rank.

  • If the tie still remains unresolved the candidates with the higher marks in Physics will be awarded the better rank.

  • In case the tie still persists then it will be resolved by considering the ratio of positive marks and negative marks. Candidates with the higher absolute value of the ratio will be given the better rank.

  • In case the tie is still not resolved, then the candidates will be given the same rank.

Important Points of JEE Main Common Rank List

  • The common rank list of JEE Main will include candidates given ranks as per their performance but with a tag of GEN, GEN-PwD, OBC-NCL, OBC-NCL-PwD, SC, SC-PwD, ST or ST-PwD.

  • The category ranks will be separate from the JEE Main 2019 common rank list where the list will consist of the same category candidates assigned ranks on the basis of their performance in JEE Main 2019.

  • Allotment will be on the basis of CRL which is also called as the common rank list.
