Procedure for JEE Main Ranks
National Testing Agency will announce the rank list after the result for JEE Main 2020 April is announced. The reason is that many candidates would have appeared for both the exams – JEE Main January and April. The JEE Main 2020 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.
Appeared in JEE Main 2020 January OR April? Scores of the respective January OR April test will be used.
Appeared in both JEE Main 2020 January and JEE Main April 2020? 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 2020 score calculated?
The JEE Main score 2020 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 2020 (instead of the raw marks of the candidate). The JEE Main 2020 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 2020 for Paper-1
Ranks will be prepared on the basis of the percentile scores of the candidates in JEE Main 2020 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 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.

Ive applied for VITEEE2020 VIT university has cancelled the VITEEE2020 VIT is asking the state board score and JEE MAINS score.Now more 2 lakhs students applied for VITEEE2020 to get seat in VIT,vellore/chennai campuses what must be the stateboard score & jeemains score ?..
Since this is the first time that VITEEE 2020 cancelled due to the corona pandemic we cannot predict the cut off. Admission is based on merit in state board exams in Mathematics/Biology, Physics and Chemistry. Also if a candidate qualified in JEE Main will be given weightage. Cut off will be declared after the counselling and it depends on number of candidates applied, number of seats available, marks scored in boards etc.
do pyq of jee main and advance appear in bitsat?
Yes, the previous year questions of JEE Main are many a times asked in BITSAT. As JEE Main and BITSAT have the similar level of difficulty, if you prepare for JEE Main than your BITSAT preparation is also going on because to clear both the exams you are required to have good speed and accuracy.
But, it's not in the case of JEE Advanced, it has a higher level than JEE Main and BITSAT both. JEE Advanced questions are more conceptual and diffilcult.
