Components of JEE Main 2020 Result
For a multiple-shift entrance examination, the conducting body declares the result by applying the process of Normalisation. It is used to ensure that candidates are not at disadvantage due to any difference in difficulty level of exam shift and session. Hence, to overcome such a situation, “Normalization procedure based on Percentile Score” is used. In this process, candidate scores across multi session papers are compared and based on it percentile score is used.
JEE Main result 2020 is prepared as follows:
Raw scores – It is the marks obtained by the candidate based on the marking scheme released by NTA. For a correct answer, 04 marks are given and 01 marks are deducted for an incorrect response. NTA does not disclose the raw score but determines it on the basis of final answer key.
Formula to calculate JEE Main Raw Score
JEE Main Raw Score = 4 x Number of Correct Answers – 1 X Number of Incorrect Answers
JEE Main AIR – The All India Rank for JEE Main 2020 is prepared on the basis of JEE Main Jan / April exam. If the candidate has appeared for both the exams then the best percentile score is used for allocating rank to the candidates.
Percentile score – It is prepared by normalizing raw score of the candidates. It indicates the percentage of candidates who have scored equal to less than you in the entrance exam. The percentile score is further used for preparation of the merit lists. The percentile score is calculated using the formula:
100 x 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’
How is JEE Main 2020 Result Prepared?
The result of JEE Main 2020 is prepared by first calculating the raw scores, then by turning it into normalized marks and then by determining rank on the basis of the percentile score. The step-by-step process for normalisation and preparation of JEE Main merit list is explained below:

- The examinees are distributed in four sessions randomly so that each session has an approximate equal number of candidates.
- In case of more number of days or more number of shifts, candidates are divided accordingly.
Step 2: Preparation of result for each session
- NTA prepares JEE Main result in the form of a raw score, percentile score separate for each subject, and total percentile.
Step 3: Compilation of NTA score and preparation of overall merit list
- The percentile score for all the session is merged together to get NTA score which is then further used for the preparation of overall merit / rank list.
- Tie-breaker criteria is used in case of two or more candidates obtain equal percentile.
JEE Main 2020 Result Compilation for both the Attempts

- Candidates with a higher percentile score in Mathematics is ranked higher in the merit.
- If there is still a tie, then the candidates with higher percentile score in Physics are given preference in the merit.
- If the tie still persists, then the higher percentile score in Chemistry is cosidered for breaking the tie.
