The NTA will be releasing the scores using the normalisation procedure which is used to compare JEE Main 2020 Result using multi-session papers. This procedure is used so as to eliminate the variable difficulty of the exam, thereby eradicating any advantages/ disadvantages that some particular candidates may get over the others.
The percentile score will be based on the relative performance of all the aspirants appearing in the exam. The score will be obtained after transforming the scores into a scale ranging from 100 to 0 for each session of examinees.
As per the official website, "The Percentile Score indicates the percentage of candidates that have scored EQUAL TO OR BELOW (same or lower raw scores) that particular Percentile in that examination. Therefore the topper (highest score) of each session gets the same Percentile of 100 which is desirable. The marks obtained in between the highest and lowest scores are also converted to appropriate Percentiles."
The formula to calculate JEE Main 2020 Score is given as:
100 x number of candidates appeared in the “session” with a raw score equal to or less than the candidate/Total number of candidates appearing the particular session
Therefore, the highest scorer always gets 100th Percentile that also means 100% candidates have scored equal to or less than raw score of 75 and 0% of candidates have scored more than 75 raw score.
A candidate with 90.1224411 Percentile Score and 71 Raw Score means that 90.1224411% candidates scored equal to or less than 71 raw score and remaining candidates scored more than 71 raw scored.
The lowest percentile in each session depends on the total number of candidates appeared in the exam in that session.
Using the above Formula percentile for each candidate with raw score can be awarded.
Distribution of candidates into different sessions randomly so approximately the same number of candidates are allotted in each session.
Each session result would be prepared in the form of raw scores and percentile score separately for each subject i.e. Mathematics percentile, Physics percentile, Chemistry percentile and Total percentile.
The percentile scores of all the four sessions shall be merged in one forming the NTA Score.
Based on the merged percentile scores from all the sessions, NTA score, the overall merit list will be prepared.
Normalization and Percentile Scores are already good measures to lessen the occurrences of a tie. National Testing Agency will award percentile scores up to 7 decimal places to further avoid ties. Since the number of applicants is in lakhs the probability of tie increases. Hence to resolve the tie in JEE Main 2020 Result, if any, the merit shall be determined in order of preference as follows:
Candidates with higher percentile in Mathematics
Candidates with higher percentile in Physics
Candidates with higher percentile in Chemistry
Candidates age is older.
The above sequence shall be adopted until the tie is broken. The Final Ranking/Merit would be prepared after resolving the ties.

NTA will be releasing the scores using the normalization procedure which is used to compare JEE Main 2020 Results using multi-session papers. This procedure is used so as to eliminate the variable difficulty of the exam, thereby eradicating any advantages/ disadvantages that some particular candidates may get over the others.
Percentile Equivalence will be used by the National Testing Agency. These percentile scores are given upon the relative performances of all the candidates. This method usually gets hold of many candidates falling under the category of the same percentile which is completely fine. The percentile score is much easier to compare the position of a candidate out of lakhs of candidates taking the examination.
JEE Main Counselling and Seat Allotment process is carried on by the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) which has been set up the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD). The process is carried on only through the online mode and only candidates who register and further get the qualifying marks for the examination are only eligible to participate in the counselling process.
Candidates are required to choose their selected preferences along with the selected colleges of their choice. More than 100 colleges and institutions all over the country participate in the process.
2 Mock Rounds and 7 Main Counselling Rounds are conducted for the candidates. The mock rounds will help the candidates to understand the seats they may be allotted, based on the preferences that the candidates have filled.
