JEE Main 2017 result calculation procedure
The various process and steps to be followed while calculating JEE Main result 2017 are mentioned below.
JEE Main Result – How to calculate percentile of Marks of Class 12th/Qualifying Examination
While calculating JEE Main 2017 result normalisation has not been considered. However, as per the new admission criteria for JEE Main 2017 candidates must have obtained 75% in their Class XII or be in the top 20 percentile of their board. For SC/ST students the qualifying marks would be 65% in class 12 examination or be in top 20 percentile of their respective board.
The examination authority will announce the top 20 percentile cutoff of class 12 of each board. And, based on the 75% or top 20 percentile, examination authority will select candidates while preparing the JEE Main 2017 result and All India rank.
For clarity on new criteria for deriving JEE Main 2017 result, candidates may refer to the examples mentioned below.
Difference between percentage and percentile
The percentage of marks and percentile are totally different entities hence, candidates should not confuse with both the above terms. The difference between percentage and percentile is explained below
- Percentage is a number out of 100. For eg. 40% of 200 is 40 x 200/100 = 80
- 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
- Percentile score of a candidate from a particular class 12 Board will show how many candidates have scored below that candidate in the respective class 12 Board examination
- The Percentile is to be calculated as 100 x number of candidates in the group with aggregate marks less than the candidates/ Total number of candidates in the group
Formulae for calculating percentile in mentioned below:
The Percentile of a candidate will be calculated as
For better understanding we consider following examples:
Suppose number of candidates registered is 13918 and number of candidates appeared is 13711 in any class 12 board exam
Case 1: A candidate has scored 50% marks in the class 12 Board and 2218 candidates have scored below him. The Percentile score will be calculated as follows
Percentile score for 50% marks in the Board = 2218 x 100 / 13918 = 16.18
Case 2: A Candidate has scored 60% marks in the class 12 Board and 6865 candidates have scored below him. The Percentile score will be calculated as follows
Percentile score for 60% marks in the Board = 6865 x 100 / 13918= 50.07
Case 3: A Candidate who has scored 90% marks in the Board and 13615 candidates have scored below him. The Percentile score will be calculated as follows
Percentile score for 90% marks in the Board = 13615 x 100 / 13918= 99.3
While calculating category-wise cut-off marks for the top 20 percentile the examination authority will consider the marks scored by all the ‘successful’ candidates in their respective boards in the particular year. This percentile will be matched with the published top 20 percentile of the board as announced by CBSE while determining JEE Main 2017 result and all India rank. Candidates falling under the top 20 percentile will be included in JEE main 2017 all India rank and will be eligible for admission.
What subjects will be taken into consideration for calculation of percentile?
Calculation of percentile for JEE Main 2017 Paper 1 – B.Tech/ B. Planning
The following five subjects are taken into account for calculation of percentile of class 12
marks for JEE Main paper 1.
- Any one of subjects (Chemistry, Biology, Biotechnology, Technical Vocational Subject)
- Any other subject
Note: If a candidate has appeared in six subjects in the qualifying examination, the better of the fifth or sixth is considered.
Calculation of percentile for JEE Main 2017 Paper 2- B. Arch/B. Planning
The following subjects are taken into account for calculation of percentile of class 12
marks for JEE Main paper 2.
- Other four subjects
Rules for calculation of percentile for JEE Main 2017 result:
- While calculating, the total marks of 5 subjects is scaled (up or down) so that the total aggregate marks out of 500 can be calculated in case of any subject whose total is less than 100
- For candidates who appeared in Class XII (or equivalent) in 2016 but reappeared in 2017, the best of the two performances is considered while calculating percentile
- If the Board awards only grades without providing an equivalent percentage of marks on the grade sheet, then such candidates should obtain a certificate from the Board specifying the equivalent marks and submit it at the time of acceptance of the allocated seat. In case such a certificate is not provided, the decision taken by the CSAB/JoSAA will be final
- If a Board gives aggregate marks considering both Class XI and Class XII examinations (in the 10+2 system), then only Class XII marks is considered. Similarly, for Boards which follow a semester system, the marks scored in the final two semesters will be considered
- Top 20 percentile cut-off for the academic year 2016 will be considered for the candidates who pass the Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2016
- If a candidate passes Class XII in 2016 but writes one or a few subjects in 2017 for improvement or any other reason, then top 20 percentile cut-off for 2016 will be considered. However, if a candidate writes all the subjects in 2017, then the better of the two performances will be considered
- In case a Board does not provide information about the cut-off for the top 20 percentile, the candidate has to produce a certificate from the respective Board stating that he/she falls within the top 20 percentile of successful candidates. If the candidate fails to do so, then the cut-off marks for the CBSE will be used
If a Board does not give marks scored in individual subjects but gives only the aggregate marks in class 12, then the aggregate marks given by the Board will be considered in the following manner
- The category-wise cut-off marks for the top 20 percentile are calculated based on the marks scored by all the ‘successful’ candidates in their respective boards in the particular year
- The cut-off marks for PwD candidates will be the same as the lowest of the cut-off marks for GEN, OBC-NCL, SC and ST categories
- It is reiterated that top 20 percentile cutoff for the academic year 2017 will be considered for the candidates who pass the Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2017
