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-
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.
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.
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

- 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

- 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

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
