The final answer key will be declared after reviewing the challenges by subject experts. The result will be declared on January 31, 2020. The final result will be based on four NTA scores of each of the three subjects and the total score in B.Tech/B.Arch/B.Planning, respectively. To know details about how to calculate NTA scores, keep reading the article below. 

 

JEE Main 2020 exam ranking

The merit will be calculated by converting the raw scores of all three subjects into the NTA score. In the case of a tie between two students, it will be resolved in descending order as follows –  the first stage of tie breaker is the NTA score of a candidate in a particular subject, followed by the second stage of tie – breaker i.e. the candidate with a lesser number of negative responses in the paper will rank higher, and the third stage of the tie-breaker is that the candidate older in age will be placed at a higher rank.

JEE Main 2020 Method for Determining Merit

To calculate the merit of B.Tech/B.E., B.Arch and B.Planning, the raw scores of all three subjects will be converted into the NTA scores. The overall merit will be prepared by merging the NTA scores of all the shifts of all the days.

 

JEE Main 2020 Method for Resolving Ties

In case of a tie between two candidates with equal total NTA scores in B.Tech/B.E., B.Arch and B.Planning, it will be resolved by the following in descending order:

  1. NTA score in Mathematics (All three branches) – In case of a tie in NTA score, the candidate with a higher score in Mathematics will get a higher rank.
  2. NTA score in Physics (B.Tech)/ Aptitude Test (B.Arch & B.Planning) – In case 2 candidates have the same score in Mathematics too, then, the candidate who has scored more in Physics will get a higher rank. In case of B Arch. and B Plan. courses, the marks scored in the aptitude test will be compared.
  3. NTA score in Chemistry (B.Tech)/ Drawing Test(B.Arch)/ Planning Based Questions (B.Planning) – In case there is still a tie, the marks in chemistry (for B Tech), in drawing test for B Arch and in the planning based questions for B Plan will be compared to determine the ranking of candidates.
  4. Candidates with a less negative response in the paper – In case there is still a tie between two aspirants, the candidate with a lesser number of negative responses will be placed at a higher rank. 
  5. Candidate older in age – if there is still a tie, then the candidate who is older in age will be given a higher rank.

After reviewing the challenges by subject experts, a final answer key will be displayed and declared on the official website of NTA. The final result will be declared on the basis of the final answer key.

MCQs will be evaluated on the basis of the final answer key and raw scores of the candidates. In the case of multiple shift papers, actual raw scores obtained in different shifts will be converted to NTA scores.

 

JEE Main 2020 Compilation and Display of Results

Since the JEE Main 2020 January session, (the exam for B.Tech/B.E., B.Arch and B.Planning) will be conducted in multiple shifts, the raw marks obtained by the candidates in all three subjects will be converted to NTA scores.

The result will comprise of four NTA scores for each of the three subjects and total in the B.Tech/B.E., B.Arch and B.Planning, respectively.

Preparation of Results for each Session

In each session, the examination result will be prepared in three forms: 

  1. Raw scores, 
  2. Percentile scores separately of each subject and 
  3. the total score. 

Percentile score of the total raw score for all the sessions would be merged and will be called NTA score

Calculation of Percentile for JEE Main 2020
