The result will be in form of percentile scores meaning the raw score obtained by students is converted into percentile scores. This is done by taking the highest marks obtained by a student in a given session as 100 percentile and then the rest are marked according to them.

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, followed by higher percentile scores obtained in physics and chemistry. The NTA will create a merit list to allot ranks to students after calculating the percentile scores.
