The National Testing Agency has released the NTA Score based on the normalisation procedure set by them. As per the NTA, The scores are normalised scores across multi-session papers and are based on the relative performance of all those who appeared for the examination in one session. The marks obtained are transformed into a scale ranging from 100 to 0 for each session of examinees. The NTA has also declared the All India Ranks of the candidates in their respective categories. The percentile is the best of the two attempts while rank is based on the final percentile taken.
The percentile score (NTA score) is the relative performance of all candidates appearing in the exam. For each session of JEE Main (I) 2019, the marks scored by candidates are mapped into a scale ranging from 1 to 100. The topper of each session has got 100 percentile and other scores are mapped into appropriate percentiles. The percentile score refers to the number of candidates who have scored equal to or below the specific percentile (in a session).
This should be understood well because percentile score is the normalised score for the JEE Main Examination. To bring out the final merit list, the percentile score is taken into account instead of raw marks of the candidate. To avoid any ties, the percentile score will be counted up to seven digits. This will also help in removing the bunching effect.
The NTA Score indicates the percentage of candidates who have scored equal to or below (same or lower raw scores) that particular candidate in that session.”
There has been a steep increase in the cut-off score compared to JEE Main 2018. This is owing to lower difficulty level of the exam this year. Additionally, they had two attempts for JEE Main and hence have worked hard and tried to improve their score over a period of 3 months.
Category Cut-off Total NTA Score (to appear for JEE Advanced) is as below
