How is JEE Main calculation done?

JEE Main score calculation will be based on the formula “JEE Main Score = 4 marks x number of correct answers - number of wrong answers x 1”.

How is AIR calculated if two student's JEE Main scores are equal?

In the case of an equal score attained by more than 1 candidate, this situation is called Tie-Breaking. During this situation, the candidates' scores in each subject will be considered. In the case of B.Tech, priority will be given more to Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry. In the case of B.Arch, priority will be given to the score attain in Aptitude Test and Drawing Test. However, if the tie cannot be broken, the same rank will be allotted to both the candidates.

Latest Update

Latest Update: 29th Nov 2020 According to the officials, the National Testing Agency (NTA) likely to conduct the first session of the Joint Entrance Exam or JEE Main 2021 in February 2021, instead of January month. The official notification about the examination dates and other important dates will be released soon on its official website (@ jeemain.nta.nic.in) via online mode. As per the latest source, NTA will begin the registration for JEE Main 2021 in December 2020, but the official dates yet to be notified soon by the admission authority.

Initially, National Testing Agency (NTA) was supposed to conduct JEE Main two sessions in January and April. Still, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the academic schedule has been disrupted this year. The engineering admission for the academic year 2020-21 is still happening. Considering all these reasons, the admission authority will be conducting JEE Main 2021 in February month.

To help the larger group of candidates, Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal announced that “In upcoming years, JEE Main examination will be conducted in regional languages. The entrance test is being offered in English, Hindi, and Gujarati languages. 

As per the latest source, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia recommended reducing the 50% syllabus for all the classes in the current academic session because of the continued loss of classes due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Hence, next year entrance exams such as JEE Main 2021 and NEET 2021 will be held based on a reduced syllabus to line up with the current academic class syllabus. However, the agency yet to confirm the news as official.

The Joint Entrance Examination or JEE Main is a national level entrance test conducted to grant admission to engineering, which is offered by reputed educational institutes like IIITs, NITs, GFTIs, and other participating institutes across the country. Also, candidates who qualify in JEE Main are eligible to take up JEE Advanced entrance exam.

This year, JEE Main 2020 April session has been postponed twice due to the COVID-19 Lockdown situation, and then, NTA successfully conducted JEE Main 2020 Examination in September by following the government guidelines.
