How Will NTA publish the JEE Main 2019 Result?

The NTA will be conducting JEE Main 2019 in two sessions per day for Paper 1 and Paper 2. The result for JEE Main 2019 will be prepared for candidates by applying the Normalization procedure. Hence, the percentile score for the candidates will be prepared by applying the rules of normalization. Here we have tried to explain the normalization procedure, in the simplest way possible.

What is a Percentile Score?

There is a difference in the percentage and percentile. The Percentile score is calculated on the relative performance of all those who appear for the examination. Percentile basically describes that among all the people appeared for the entrance exam, what is your rank among them & where exactly do you stand.

For example,  if in a class of 100 students, you have topped the exam. So what this means is that your score is better than 99 people and hence your percentile is 99%ile. Again, if your rank had been 30th, that means your score is better than 70 people and hence your percentile is 70%ile.

What is Raw Score?

The raw score is basically the marks obtained by the candidate on the basis of the marking scheme specified by the NTA. For a correct answer, 04 marks are awarded and for an incorrect answer, 01 marks are deducted. The total marks obtained by adding and deducting the marks is the raw score of the candidate.

Now, that our concept of Percentile and Raw score is clear, let’s move forward to how NTA will prepare and publish the JEE Main Result 2019?

Procedure for Normalization and Preparation of Merit/ Rank List

  • Firstly, the candidates will be distributed into four sessions randomly so that each session has an approximately equal number of candidates.
  • The examination results for each session will then be prepared in the form of Raw Scores, Percentile score for each subject and Total Percentile.
  • The Percentile scores for the Total Raw Score for all the four sessions ( for instance, Session-1: Day-1 Shift-1, Session2: Day-1 Shift-2, Session-3: Day-2 Shift-1 and Session-4: Day-2 Shift-2) will then be merged and will be called as NTA scores. This NTA Score will be used for compilation of result and preparation of overall Merit List / Ranking. 

The Raw Score and the Percentile score will be calculated separately for the three subjects for each session. Check the image below.

Remember that the NTA score is published on considering the percentile for all the Four Sessions combined and applying the tie resolving method if required. The NTA Score and Overall merit/ rank list will somewhat look like this…

Compilation and Display of Result for JEE Main 2019

The NTA will publish the JEE Main 2019 Result for the multi-session in the following ways:

  • Compilation of Result for First Attempt 

The JEE Main 2019 First attempt will be conducted in multi-sessions, hence the NTA scores will be calculated on the basis of the score (raw scores) obtained by a candidate in each session as per the procedure given above. Finally, for the declaration of the result, the NTA Score will be merged for all the session. The result shall comprise the four NTA scores for each of the three subjects (Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry) and the total for the first attempt.

  • Compilation of Result for Second Attempt 

Likewise, for the second attempt, the NTA scores will be calculated corresponding to the raw marks obtained by a candidate in each session The result will be displayed by calculating the NTA scores for all the sessions merged together.

  • Compilation of Result and Preparation of Merit List / Ranking

Now, for the merit list/ ranking, the NTA score for the First as well as Second attempt will be merged together. Those who appeared in both the attempts; their best of the two NTA scores will be considered further for preparation of Merit List /Ranking.

The merit list for NTA JEE Main 2019 shall look like this…

Tie Breaker Criteria in JEE Main 2019

In the case of two or more candidates obtain equal marks in the entrance examination, the tie will be resolved by considering the following rules:

Tie Breaker Criteria in Paper 1 (BE /BTech)

  1. The candidates with higher marks in Mathematics in JEE Main will be ranked higher in the merit.
  2. If there is still a tie, the candidates with higher marks in Physics will be considered.
  3. If the tie still not resolved, the candidates who have obtained higher NTA score of the raw marks in Chemistry will be included in the merit list.
  4. Lastly, if the tie is still not resolved then the candidates older in age will be taken into consideration.

Tie Breaker Criteria in Paper 2 (B.Arch. /B.Planning)

  • The Candidates obtaining higher marks in Aptitude Test in Paper-2 will be ranked higher in the merit.
  • If there is still a tie, then the candidates obtaining higher marks in Drawing Test in Paper-2 will be given higher preference.
  • if the tie is still not resolved, then the age of the candidates will be taken into consideration. Hence, the candidates older in age will be given preference over the younger candidate.
