JEE Main 2019 Merit List – National Testing Agency (NTA) announced new marking and ranking system for JEE Main 2019. The merit list for admission to IITs and other engineering colleges through Joint Entrance Examination-Main (JEE-Main) will be based on percentile scores and not based on marks candidates scored in the test
A Senior HRD Ministry official has given statement to the Times of India that the normalisation procedure based on percentile score will be used to arrive at the NTA score has been based on the format in practice for the undergraduate-MBBS test conducted by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Delhi. The official also added that “A core group of experts from IITs (Roorkee, Kanpur, Delhi, Guwahati), IIM-Lucknow, NITs, UGC, IASRI (Pusa) and AIIMS, Delhi, among others have been asked to finalise the process for calculating the NTA score.”
JEE Main 2019 is scheduled to take place in January and April 2019. A JEE-Main aspirant will have a choice of taking the test twice, January cycle and April cycle.
NTA official explained the format saying that, “Candidates will get different sets of questions per session and though efforts will be made to maintain equivalence among various question papers, the difficulty level of question papers in different sessions may not exactly be same.” Therefore, the prospects of cheating and manipulation are comparatively lesser now. Some exams could be tougher than others, which mean that students attempting those exams could face a tougher set of questions and consequently score lower raw marks. The percentile system could potentially be used to help bridge the gap between scores obtained for different JEE exam difficulties
