Factors Affecting JEE Main Paper 2 Ranks and Cut Offs

The ranks of candidates depend upon the interplay of various factors like:>>

  • Difficulty of the paper – In case the exam is difficult, the cut-offs will go down. These benefits students with low ranks as the competition is minimised at lower ranks.
  • Number of candidates who appeared for the examination – More candidates mean higher competition. In JEE Main B. Arch and B.Planning paper, the number of candidates is very low compared to the NATA exam. This makes JEE Main 2021 B. Arch and B.Planning paper comparatively easy to rank higher.
  • Number of seats available for candidates – Although this does not directly affect the JEE Main Paper 2 Result of a candidate, if there are fewer seats for a particular course, the JEE Main Cut Off will go higher. The seat availability could oppositely affect the result.

Low JEE Main Score/Rank? Evaluating These Options Might Help

Last updated on September 16th, 2020 at 01:34 pm

“The greatest test of courage on earth is to bear defeat without losing heart”

This proverb holds true in different practical aspects of life as well. There might be a lot of students who prepared diligently throughout the entire year or maybe for even two years but still could not get good rank due to some unfortunate reasons.For them, it is important not to lose hope at this point of time or get disheartened even if this was their second attempt. Now is the time to be vigilant and apply a new strategy of analyzing and improvising which might not help them to make it to IITs but will definitely help them seek admission in good reputed colleges such as NITs, IIITs, GITFs, etc.

If the student could not secure a good JEE Main Score, there might be a problem either with their preparation or the execution. Hence, the first step is to analyze where the void is. For example,

  • There might be students who were not completely prepared for the exam and left some of the important topics which unfortunately came in the exam. Therefore, there was a lag in preparation.
  • There might be a student who could not perform well because he got anxious during the exam and committed silly errors which resulted in a drop in rank. This is an example of a problem in the execution.

So, it is better for them to analyze what went wrong and how they can work on it. Now, there are three options which you can choose from:

  1. Prepare for the next attempt and drop this year
  2. Settle with the college that you can get with your JEE Main score
  3. Wait for successive counselling sessions

Let us dive deep into each option and students can make a wise decision if you secure a low JEE Main score.

1. Prepare for the Next Attempt and drop this year

This is an alternative which you can choose if you have appeared for the first attempt with the board exams. This will help in learning and studying more for JEE Main and keeping your focus only on this exam.

  • Taking a one-year drop will give you an added advantage since you would have already experienced the exam once and also your preparation would just need more focus and brush-up.
  • Complete dedication and determination of study will sail you through the JEE Main exam.

OR

  • From 2019, JEE Main is conducted twice a year.
  • Candidates have an option to not drop a year and prepare for the second attempt if they are not satisfied with the result of the first attempt.
  • So candidates have a chance to appear twice in a year. If a candidate secures a low JEE Main score in the first attempt, then he/she can appear for the second attempt.

However, if you are taking a drop for your third attempt, it can be risky and you need to make a wise and calculated step. You should be confident about this decision and be aware of the shortcomings of your preparation and the reasons not to score well in the past attempts. If one is confident about the preparation and knows that dedicating one year will help them to get over these shortcomings, then one can take this decision to drop another year. But if the students have doubts over their preparation and are not sure, then they can choose the other options which we will discuss further.

2. Settle with the college that you can get with your JEE Main score

It is pretty obvious that every student who is preparing for JEE Main exam dreams of getting into the top IITs or NITs. However, with the limited number of seats in these colleges, it is practically impossible for every student to get admission in these colleges.

  • Further, there are more than 4500 engineering colleges throughout India. There are ample opportunities for students since these colleges also have skilled faculties and good resources.
  • The other private and state universities offer B.E or B.Tech courses and have a wide range of courses and specializations to choose from.
  • The basic concepts of teaching and the engineering essence would remain almost the same in every college.
  • The students who are getting other private universities and colleges should not hesitate to opt for these.
  • To have a better picture, they can contact the students from various colleges and get to know about the quality of education in these colleges.
  • They can also visit websites and placement reports to get a fair idea about the college they are opting for.
  • Checking if their alumni are holding good positions in the industry can also be a parameter to judge the college.

All these factors will help in deciding the college in which you wish to spend your next crucial four years. Hence, the students are advised to broaden their perspective and look beyond IITs and NITs too if they have already attempted JEE Main twice.

3. Wait for Successive Counselling Sessions

There is also a good probability that you might get a good college in the subsequent JEE Main counselling rounds.

  • A lot of students drop or change colleges, which helps the other students to get a chance.
  • A lot of students are not sure about the result of the successive counselling and they end up making decisions in haste due to delayed counselling sessions.
  • It is important to first analyse the complete situation and decide after considering each aspect.
  • There are cases where students got into very good universities during mop-up counselling rounds.

Hence, one should wait and appear in each counselling session in which they are eligible to attend. This is also a great option to get a private college which is in the range of your marks. The placements and education quality of some renowned colleges are up to the mark with IITs. Therefore, keep calm and choose wisely.

NITs Offering B.Tech Courses at Low Rank in JEE Main

Admission in NITs is possible even if your rank is more than 50,000. To get admission in top NITs one should rank below 10,000. Here is a list of some NITs with their closing rank in the respective course

The huge delay in exams have had a deep impact on the mental health of students. Many had been worried about 12th Percentage due to partial cancellation of exams. Top 20 Percentile rule is nothing but the creamy top 20 percent students who scored the highest in 12th CBSE Boards or an equivalent examination, who will be eligible for IITs and NITs and other JEE Main Participating Colleges.

What Is The Top 20 Percentile For JEE Main?

Each year more than 9 lakh students appear for IIT-JEE or JEE Main and Advanced. The purpose is simple – admission in India’s Top Engineering Institutes.

  • The marks secured in Class 12th are not considered for JEE Main Rank calculation by NTA.
  • Yet, it is a determining factor for admission to IITs, NITs, IIITs and GFTIs. This is because of a hidden rule that these colleges follow.
  • Top 20 Percentile for JEE Main is nothing but the top 20 percent of the students of each board.

Given below is the cutoff for CBSE and ICSE, which might not reflect in your JEE Main Score Card, but is still required by top colleges-

Top 20 Percentile Cutoff for CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) –

Year GEN OBC-NCL SC ST PwD
2019 418 405 382 355 355
2018 432 424 410 390 390
2017 431 420 400 385 385
2016 430 414 395 376 376

Top 20 Percentile Cutoff for ICSE (Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination) –

2017 427 408 391 366 366
2016 443 427 412 388 388

The total marks scored by a student in the 12th boards or equivalent should make him/her fall in the top 20 percent of the scorers.

  • However, not all the education boards release marks in the form of rank or percentage. So, it is not possible to determine the top 20 percent scorers of that particular board.
  • Therefore, the organizing authority will also consider candidates not falling in the top 20 percentile while determining their eligibility.

Top 20 Percentile Cutoff

JoSAA publishes the list of top 20 percentile cut off for JEE Main of each board on their official website. It releases the top 20 percentile cutoff marks after results of class 12th exams of participating boards. Hence, board exams have an important value because candidates need to be in the top 20 percentile cutoff scores.

The JEE Main cut off marks is released separately for IITs and other institutes (NITs, IIITs and CFTIs) on the official site, josaa.nic.in. Although the top 20 percentile is released after the result declaration, candidates must be aware of the previous year trends.

What is the Eligibility Criteria?

Students who wish to qualify for the IITs based on the JEE Advanced Eligibility Criteria, need to meet any one of the following two requirements–

  1. Either, candidates need to score at least 75% marks (for general category candidates) in your class XII board exams. The required percentage for SC/ST/PwD candidates is 65% in this case.
  2. Or, candidates must be in the top 20 percent scorers in the class XII board exams in either General or SC/ST/PwD categories.

This raises a simple question. What are the minimum marks a candidate needs to score in class XII board exams? Can that qualify as eligibility to get admission into the IITs? This article discusses these questions in detail.

The Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) is in charge of the seat allocation to government-funded technical institutes. JoSAA also releases the top 20 percentile cut-off list of all the state boards for the class 12 exams of each year. Do note that this cutoff is altogether different from JEE Main Cutoff.

The data of Top 20 Percentile Cutoff for 2019, 2018, 2017 and 2016 is provided in this article below. Data for 2020 is not available because the top 20 percentile rule was scrapped for 2020.

How to Calculate Top 20 Percentile Cutoff?

Before getting in the state-wise cutoff of class XII board marks, it is important to understand how the Top 20 Percentile for JEE Main is calculated by JoSAA. Given below are the points over the calculation–

  • First, to calculate the top 20 percentile for different board exams of class 12th, we consider total marks. The marks of 5 subjects for top 20 percentile are taken – Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Language, Additional subject – in aggregate.
  • JoSAA conducts separate calculations for each board’s cutoff. This means that a student of CBSE and a student of the state board are considered separately.
  • Also, if a student has appeared in more than 1 language paper, the language paper with higher marks will be taken into consideration.
  • Similarly, if a student has studied more than the 5 subjects mentioned above, the score of the top 5 subjects is considered.
  • If the marks in a subject are not out of 100, then the total marks for that subject will be proportionately calculated out of 100. So that the total aggregate marks totals to 500.
  • Let’s say a student appears in the class XII boards of 2020 and passes the exam. But reappears in a few subjects for the class XII board exams held in 2021. Then, the top 20 percentile for JEE Main 2020 will be taken into account.
  • If a student reappears in the next year for all the exams of class XII boards, then the better of two is taken into consideration.
  • Hence, if reappearing for the boards the next year, with the aim of improving their marks. They should appear in all the five papers instead of just a few.

Calculation of Class 12th Marks for Admission to IITs

The score will be calculated as follows-

  • Marks of an applicant will be considered for any 5 subjects for top 20 percentile for JEE Main. Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics are compulsory subjects.
  • Out of these 5 subjects, one language subject will be considered.
  • If a candidate has 2 language subjects, a subject with a higher score will be considered for the top 20 percentile cut off.
  • Further, if marks in any subject are not awarded out of 100, then such score will be scaled to make it out of 100. For example, if a candidate has scored 60 out of 80, his/her marks will be taken as – (60/80)*100 = 75
  • If a candidate appeared for Class 12 exam in the previous year and reappears for any one or two subjects in the current year, then previous year’s marks will be considered
  • If a candidate appeared for Class 12 exam in the previous year but reappears for all 5 exams in the current year, then the higher score out of both will get considered.

Difference Between Percentage and Percentile

Often candidates get obscured of the difference between a percentage score and percentile. However, both terms are completely different from one another.

  • A percentage score is marks obtained by a candidate from the aggregate of 100.
  • On the other hand, a percentile is a term used to define the percentage a candidate secures below particular marks.

Example – Suppose a candidate has secured 85 percent marks. These are the marks secured out of 100, wherein he/she has scored 85. If the total is 200, it will be 170 and so on.

However, if a candidate mentions he/she has scored 85 percentile, that would mean 85 percent of all other candidates who have appeared for the examination have scored fewer marks than the candidate with 85 percentile.

How to calculate JEE Main 2021 Result?

The JEE Main Result 2021 is calculated in the form of a percentile NTA score for Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics and a combined score. The NTA scores are obtained by normalization. This is done using the raw score gained by the candidates. The following formula is used to obtain the NTA score-

Calculate JEE Main 2020 Result

The NTA scores of candidates in JEE Main exam will be used to compute the ranks. The AIR is affected directly by the scores obtained in Joint Entrance Exam i.e. higher the scores, better the rank in JEE Main. In case, two or more candidates score equal marks, then the tie-breaking rule or inter-se-merit will be applicable.

Normalization Procedure for JEE Main Result 2021

Various sets of JEE Main 2021 papers are designed for each shift. To maintain equivalence of scores, no two shifts have the same question repeating. However, the difficulty level of these papers from various sessions might not remain the same. Thus, a few candidates may ultimately attempt a relatively tougher set of questions when compared to other sets.

  • The candidates who attempt the comparatively difficult examination are likely to get lower marks as compared to those who attempt the easier one. To overcome such a situation, “Normalization procedure based on Percentile Score” will be used.
  • This is to ensure that candidates are neither at a benefit or a disadvantage because of the various difficulty levels of the examination. Thus, To bring asymmetry over the difficulty scale with context to the issues mentioned above, the Normalization Procedure will be used for JEE Main 2021.

How do top scorers benefit from Normalization Procedure?

The Percentile Score and NTA Score of a candidate is the same. But it might still be unclear how two candidates – one scoring 332 marks in a particular shift, while other scoring 346 marks in another shift – would have a full 100 NTA Score. Given below is an example of the same-

Suppose the examination was held on two days in two shifts. This will be calculated as 4 sessions.

Normalization Procedure Benefit

Now, in all these sessions, the highest raw scorer will always have the highest NTA Score i.e. 100. Consequently, 100% of candidates in that particular session have a score equal to or less than the highest scorer/topper for the particular session. Given below is a table for calculation of NTA scores (percentile) of toppers.

NTA Score Calculation

This shows that all the highest raw scores would be normalized to 100 Percentile Score for their respective session in JEE Main 2021 using the Normalization Procedure.

Tie-Breaking Rule for JEE Main 2021 Result

Tie-breaker rule is nothing but the criteria on which the candidate for higher rank will be selected if there is a tie or equivalence between marks of two candidates. Usually, this does not affect the rank or percentile of a candidate by huge degree. Given below are the rules for various Papers of JEE Main 2021.

JEE Main Paper 1 (B.Tech/B.E)

The NTA score of the following subjects are considered –

  • Mathematics: Candidate who gets more percentile score in Mathematics will be ranked higher
  • Physics: Candidate who gets more percentile score in Physics will be ranked higher
  • Chemistry: Candidate who gets more percentile score in Chemistry will be ranked higher
  • Date of Birth: The older candidate between the two will be ranked higher

Note: In case the tie still remains undetermined, the same rank is given to both the candidates.

JEE Main 2021 Paper 2A (B.Arch)

Let us see how the NTA scores in the following subjects are considered –

  • Mathematics: Candidate who scores higher marks in maths section will be given a higher rank
  • Aptitude Test: Candidate with a higher score in the aptitude test will be allotted a higher rank
  • Drawing Test: Candidate with higher scores in the drawing test will be allotted a higher rank
  • Less negative response: Candidates having lesser number of negative responses in the paper will be given a higher rank
  • Date of Birth: The older candidate will be ranked higher between the two

JEE Main 2021 Paper 2B (B.Planning)

Let us see how the NTA scores in the following subjects are considered:

  • Mathematics: Candidate who obtains higher marks in Mathematics section will be given a higher rank
  • Aptitude Test: If the tie remains, the candidate with a higher score in aptitude section will be given a higher rank
  • Planning Based Questions: If all rules above do not break the tie, then the candidate with higher marks in planning based questions will be given the higher rank
  • Less negative response: Candidate having less number of negative responses in the paper will be ranked higher
  • Date of Birth: The older candidate will be ranked higher between the two

JEE Main 2021 Marks Vs Rank

The following table depicts the approximate marks range for calculating the probable rank in JEE Main. The data given below is based on the old JEE Main Exam Pattern. For an analysis of this data, it is imperative to understand that the top 10 to 20 rankers of JEE Main usually score 40 to 50 marks below the maximum marks of the examination. It is also important to note that a rank of around 15,000 is considered good and will get you a percentile score of around 90 to 95%ile. Do remember that there are more than 11,00,000 applicants who appear for the JEE Main Examination.

Score Range Rank Range
285 – 300 1 – 100
275 – 284 100 – 200
260 – 274 200 – 500
250 – 259 500 – 100
240 – 249 1000 – 1500
220 – 239 1500 – 3500
200 – 219 3500 – 6000
180 – 199 6000 – 9500
150 – 180 9500 – 15000
120 – 149 15000 – 35000
<120 More than 35000

What factors change the JEE Main Cutoff?

A large number of factors might be responsible for a change in JEE Main Cut off. Joint Seat Allocation Board has announced that class 12th marks will not be given weightage for calculating AIRs in JEE Main 2021 Exam. Although colleges might weigh the same under their admission criteria. On the other hand, major IITs do not take candidates below the minimum aggregate of around 90% in 12th boards due to high competition for seats in top courses of top IITs. The following factors play a vital role in determining the JEE Main Cutoff every year-

  • Total number of candidates appeared for the exam
  • Level of difficulty of the exam
  • Number of available seats
  • Overall performance of the candidate
