Students are always baffled about the conversion of raw scores into percentile and how they are going to be evaluated based on the percentile for JEE Advanced and NIT Admissions. So, here we are with detailed information about the relationship between JEE Mains 2021 marks and percentile.

What is percentile and why is it necessary?

Now a very common and obvious question that might trigger your nervous system is that why to introduce a new parameter when we already have fair scores. Let us clear the air about that. JEE Mains is conducted in four sessions and despite all efforts, it is practically not possible to keep the difficulty levels of all the sessions to be equal. So to prevent any discrepancy in results and to provide a fair chance to all the aspirants, the normalization technique is used. Under this, the raw scores are converted into percentile based on a foolproof and well-studied formula taking the average raw scores of each session into account. In this way, students of equal caliber are placed into the equal percentile range to prevent any biases in the results.

How does NTA convert raw score to percentile?

National Testing Agency uses a unique formula of Normalisation on how to convert raw score to percentile. The highest scores of each section are put under the same percentile and accordingly, the lower marks are turned into comparative percentiles. In this way, the students with the same potential are kept under the same percentile for a fair selection.

In case of ties:

The percentile score is calculated to seven decimal places to prevent the chances of ties, but, in case if there are students with the same percentile then the following criteria is followed :

• A student with a higher rank in mathematics will get a higher rank.
• For the same percentile and equal mathematics score students with a higher score in Physics will be ranked higher.
• For equal percentile and equal marks in mathematics and physics students with a higher score in chemistry will be ranked higher.
• For equal percentile and equal marks in all three subjects, student with less negative responses will be ranked higher.
• If the tie remains then the older candidate will be ranked higher.

Aspirants who appeared for more than one session will be evaluated based on the best of all attempts score.
