B) Normalization Method For Preparing JEE Main Result

There are various steps involved in it but the overall normalization procedure takes into account through this formula.

NTA JEE Normalization

Check the steps to understand the normalization procedure for JEE Main Merit List 2021 

Step 1: Division as per the session

Divison of the candidates as per the session is there so that there should be a fair decision as per the difficulty level of the paper.

Step 2: Result As Per The Each Session

For this mainly two steps are there such as preparation of the

  • Raw Scores: Outline is set for the marks scored by the candidates. NTA never discloses the raw score but considers it while setting the final answer key. Simple logic flows in this context is that:
4 mark for each correct answer and  1 mark deduction for an incorrect response.

 

  • Percentiles Scores separately for each of the three subjects (Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry) and the total score.

JEE Main Total Percentile

Step 3: Compilation of NTA score and preparation of overall merit/rank list

NTA will merge the Total Raw Score of all the sessions as given in step 1 and have the NTA scores. After this, the compilation of results and preparation of the overall JEE Main 2021 Merit List / Ranking is there.

  • Calculating Percentage: (100 x Marks obtained by candidate) / Total marks

  • Calculating JEE Main Percentile: (100 x Number of candidates in the session with aggregate marks less than that obtained by the candidate) / Total number of candidates who appeared in that session

Final JEE Main 2021 Result

After the commencement of the JEE Main 2021 sessions, NTA will declare the final list of the JEE Main 2021.

Method Of Resolving Ties For B.E./B.Tech

Tie between candidates obtaining equal Total NTA scores in Paper1: B.E./B.Tech will be resolved in the following descending order:

  • NTA score in Mathematics, followed by
  • NTA score in Physics, followed by
  • NTA score in Chemistry, followed by
  • Candidates having a lesser ratio of negative to positive responses

Method Of Resolving Ties For B.Arch

Tie between candidates obtaining equal Total NTA scores in Paper 2B: B. Arch will be resolved in the following manner:

  • NTA score in Mathematics, followed by
  • NTA score in Aptitude Test, followed by
  • NTA score in Drawing Test, followed by
  • Candidates having a lesser ratio of negative to positive responses

Method Of Resolving Ties For B.Planning

Tie between candidates obtaining equal Total NTA scores in B. Planning will be resolved in the following manner:
