JEE Main 2022 Tie-Breakers

On Apr 21, 2022, NTA released the modified rules for tie-breaking. They have re-introduced age criteria as one of the rules, along with the application number in ascending order as another criterion. If none of the other rules did help in breaking the tie, the age criteria and application number will be considered.

The number of candidates appearing for this exam is in the millions. The chances of a tie are fairly high. In such situations, NTA considers a candidate's best score in the below-listed subjects in descending order to determine who ranks higher (in B.E/ B.Tech courses).

  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Chemistry

If the scores in the given subjects are the same, the candidate chooses the given two options to decipher the high ranker.

  • Candidates have a lesser number of negative responses in the paper.

If there's a tie between two B.Arch candidates, the following criteria in descending order help in determining who ranks higher:

  • Mathematics
  • Aptitude Test
  • Drawing Test
  • Candidates having a lesser number of negative responses in the paper

As mentioned earlier, if the tie persists after applying the above rules, the age of the candidates will be considered, and the older candidate will be given a chance. If this does not break the tie, the candidate who applied for JEE Main 2022 exam first will be considered for the admission process.

JEE Main 2022 Marks vs Percentile Scores

The percentile score is based on the relative performance of all those who appear for the examination. For all the phases, the marks obtained in JEE Main exam are transformed into a scale that ranges from 100 to 0. The formula for calculating the percentile score can be found below.

  • Percentile Score Calculation: (100 * Number of Candidates Appearing in a Phase with Raw Score Equal To or Less Than the Candidate) / Total Number of Candidates Appearing in a Phase.

Re-evaluation/ Re-checking: Any requests made from the end of the candidates to re-check or re-evaluate JEE Main 2022 result will not be entertained.
