JEE Main 2013 final Merit List will be generated after giving 60% weightage to the marks obtained in JEE Main 2013 and 40% weightage to the class XII marks. The marks of other qualifying examination which are equivalent to Class XII will be normalized and then a combined Merit List bearing the All India Rank (AIR) would be calculated.

The criteria for JEE Main 2013 Score Normalization has been released for the generation of final merit list. The normalization will be done as follows:

Three things will be considered for final merit list generation:

  • 60% consideration of JEE Main 2013 Score.
  • 40% consideration of Class XII Board Marks.

This 40% weightage will be calculated after giving 20% weightage to candidates’ Class XII score in his/her respective Board and 20% to his/her JEE Main 2013 percentile which will be generated among the exam takers who appeared in the entrance exam from the Board of the candidate. This will finally give the relative merit of candidate amongst all the candidate of his/her board including those who took the exam of JEE Main 2013.

Percentile Calculation for Score Normalization in JEE Main 2013:

The Percentile Score is different from Percentage score. The PERCENTILE gives the position of candidate among all the candidates who took the exam, e.g. a score of 95 percentile means that 95% of candidates are below him or 5% candidates are above him.

After calculating this 40 percentile value, it has to be scaled back to JEE Main 2013 score value to calculate the final merit. So, the final calculation in JEE Main 2013 Score Normalization will be done as follows:

Let say a student socres 90 percentile marks in CBSE Board, so now we will look at JEE Main Marks of all students and suppose a student with 90 percentile in Jee Main has a score of 240 then we will consider only 20 % of that and i.e. 0.20 * 240 = 48 marks.

Now, look for 90 percentile of JEE Board wise list, say 180, take only 20% of which will be 0.20*180=36 marks. And the final merit will be calculated as the sum of 48+36+ JEE Main Score.
