- Candidates are also to note and verify for themselves the the eligibility for appearing in JEE (ADVANCED) – 2014 as well as eligibility for admission to various institutes. Being eligible to write JEE (Main) and by obtaining an all INDIA RANK IN JEE (Main), A candidate does not automatically become eligible for admission.
- Candidates seeking admission to the institutions in the states of Gujarat, Maharastra, Nagaland and Odisha, which where earlier admitting based on their state level examination, are also advised to verify their eligibility as per criteria laid down by these state governments.
- No. of Attempts and Age limit for the states of Maharashtra and Odisha:
Since the states of Maharashtra, Nagaland and Odisha have now joined JEE (Main) system from 2014. The age limit, for admission to institutions in these states which were earlier admitting candidates based on their state level examinations, will be as per their past practice only. The number of attempts in such cases will also remain same as per their past practice. This will however be obviously not applicable for admission to IITs/NITs/IIITs/CFTIs.
1. The percentage of marks and percentile are totally different entities hence the candidates should not confuse with both the above terms.
2. Percentage is a number out of 100.
3. Percentile Score of a candidate in a Board or JEE (Main) will reflect how many Candidates have scored below that candidate in his / her Board or JEE (Main) Examination.
- A Percentile score is the value below which a certain percent of observations fall. For example, the 40th Percentile is the value or score below which 40 Percent of the observations may be found.
- The Percentile of a Candidate will be calculated as
100 X Number of candidates in the ‘group’ with aggregate marks less than the candidate ______________________________________________________________________
Total number of the candidates in the ’group’
Example: Suppose in a particular Board:
No of Candidates Registered =13918 and No of Candidates Appeared = 13711
a. A Candidate who has scored 50% marks in the Board and 2218 candidates have scored below him; his Percentile score will be calculated as follows
Percentile score for 50% marks in the Board = (2218 x 100) / 13711 = 16.18
b. A Candidate who has scored 60% marks in the Board and 6865 candidates have scored below him; his Percentile score will be calculated as follows
Percentile score for 60% marks in the Board = (6865 x 100) / 13711 = 50.07
c. A Candidate who has scored 90% marks in the Board and 13615 candidates have scored below him; his Percentile score will be calculated as follows
Percentile score for 90% marks in the Board = (13615 x 100) / 13711 = 99.30
With these examples, it is clear that percentage of marks obtained by a candidate (50%, 60% or 90%) is different from the percentile score (16.18, 50.07 or 99.30).
4. The normalized Qualifying examination marks will be based on the position of the candidate in the Board (i.e. his/her percentile score). The percentile score a candidate gets in his/her board will mainly contribute to his/her normalized marks.
5. The candidates, willing to appear in the improvement examination to improve the qualifying examination marks, will have to appear in all the five subjects for improvement.
6. In the percentile system, the total marks (of all five subjects) obtained/shown on the mark-sheet of a particular year are required in JEE (Main) and also in JEE (Advanced). The marks from two different years (i.e. marks for 3 subjects from year 2012 and marks for other 2 subjects from 2013) mark-sheets cannot be considered for percentile calculation.
7. For JEE (Advanced) 2014: If a candidate submits the particulars of his/her qualifying examination for 2013, the top 20 percentile criteria of 2013 will be applicable which was declared by IITs after the declaration of the boards’ results of 2013. Similarly, the candidates who are providing their qualifying examination particulars of 2014, the criteria of 20 percentile will be applicable which will be declared after the declaration of the boards’ results of 2014.
8. The weightage of normalized qualifying examination marks is only for deciding ranking of JEE (Main) which will be used for admission to all Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs)/ NITs/IIITs but excluding IITs.
9. The candidates who are appearing in the improvement examination to improve their qualifying examination marks will get only one chance to inform JEE (Main) Unit as to which year qualifying examination marks to be considered for the purpose of declaration of final merit. The candidates are advised to regularly visit JEE (Main) website and newspapers for the notification regarding above.
10. The five subjects will be taken into account for calculation of percentile and normalization of qualifying examination marks for paper 1(B.E./B. Tech.) and paper 2 (B. Arch./B. Planning)of JEE (Main) which are:
4- Any one of (Chemistry, Biology, Biotechnology, Technical Vocational Subject),
5- Any other subject.
Note: If a candidate has appeared in six subjects in the qualifying examination, the subject (fifth or sixth) with better marks will be considered.
11. In order to calculate normalized qualifying examination marks following data is considered. Marks of all the students in that Board whose subject combinations meet the eligibility criteria of JEE-Main.
