Know What Does Percentile Score Stands for, in JEE Main
 
JEE Main will be conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA) twice before the admissions in the next academic session. The test will be conducted on multiple dates, and in two sessions per day.

While there will be different sets of question papers per session, chances remain that the difficulty level of the different sets differs resulting in some candidates having to attempt relatively tougher sets of questions and scoring lower marks compared to others.

Under the circumstances, some candidates may be at disadvantage due to the tougher set of questions they get to attempt while others may be getting undue advantage owing to the easier set of questions that they were handed. In order to circumvent such a situation and bring about equivalence in the scoring system, NTA has decided to normalize the scores using the percentile method.

Candidates appearing for JEE Main will be awarded Percentile scores instead of raw scores. It is worthwhile to mention here that NTA has assured that there will be no change in pattern and difficulty level of the test.

Percentile scores are calculated based on the relative performance of all the candidates appearing for the examination. It is obtained by transforming the raw scores of individual candidates on a scale ranging from 100 to 0 for each session.

Most of the aptitude selection tests in India follow the normalization process, using the percentile equivalence. A percentile score of a candidate in the JEE Main will reflect how many candidates have scored below that particular candidate.

Percentile score is calculated using the following formula:

(100 X Number of candidates appeared in a given Session with Raw Score =/< than a particular   candidate) / Total number of candidates appeared in the given Session.

Decoding the JEE Main Percentile Score and Ranking Procedure:

Percentile score is not the same as the percentage of marks obtained. Raw scores of each section, as well as overall raw score, will be converted into a percentile for every individual candidate.

The highest scorer of each session will have a normalized score 100 percentiles in their respective session. The Percentile Scores will be calculated up to 7 decimal places to reduce ties.

In case more than one candidate obtains the same percentile scores, then the tie-breaking process will be adopted, considering first the percentile score in Mathematics, second the percentile score in Physics, third the percentile score in Chemistry and fourth the Date of Birth (the older candidate will get the higher rank).

If the tie is still unresolved, the same rank will be given to the candidates concerned. Result declared will be the percentile scores for the exam.

The JEE Main results in the form of sectional and overall percentile scores will be declared after each round of exam. The final results considering both the rounds of exams as well as the rank list will be declared tentatively on April 30, 2019, after compiling the results of both the rounds of JEE Main.

Only the Percentile score will be considered for preparation of the merit lists. The highest of the two percentile scores for candidates who appear in both the rounds of JEE Main will be considered for the All India rank of JEE Main 2019.
