JEE Main Result 2021: Scoring, Ranking system
A merit list will be created to allot ranks to students. The percentile scores will be calculated up to seven decimal places to avoid ties and give each student a different rank. This year, the tie-breaking system has been changed.
First, candidates obtaining higher percentile scores in mathematics in the test are given preference
Secondly, candidates obtaining higher percentile scores in physics are given preference
If the tie persists, then candidates obtaining higher percentile scores in chemistry are given preference,
As per the earlier criteria, after this, candidates older in age used to be preferred, however, this year age of the candidates will no longer be a factor to break the tie. What would replace this criterion is not yet announced by NTA.
In the three JEE Main sessions held so far, in February attempt, as many as six students have secured 100 percentile score in JEE Main while in March attempt the number went up to 13 students. In July as many as 17 students have scored complete 100 percentile.
