The percentile-based normalisation procedure enables NTA to prepare ranks of JEE Main 2022. Students can check the complete process of the JEE Main 2022 percentile-based normalisation procedure that is used to calculate the score and allot ranks below. For the fourth time, the percentile-based scoring mechanism/ normalisation procedure will be incorporated in JEE Main 2022. NTA (National Testing Agency) has published the percentile-based normalisation procedure for JEE Main 2022. The normalisation procedure will help students to understand how to calculate percentile score in JEE Mains. JEE Main 2022 was conducted in 2 sessions. The first session was conducted from June 23 to 29, 2022 while the second session was conducted from July 25 to 30, 2022.

Importance of Normalisation Procedure based on Percentile Score for Upcoming JEE Main 2022
NTA conducts JEE Main 2022 exam on multiple days with two sessions per day. In each session, students will get different sets of question papers, and the difficulty level may not be the same across all sets of question papers. Despite NTA’s efforts to maintain a similar difficulty level across all sessions of the JEE Main 2022 exam, some of the candidates may attempt a tougher question paper when compared to other sets. Therefore, these students end up getting lower marks in JEE Main 2022 than the candidates who attempted an easier question paper.
In order to provide justice to the candidates who attempted a difficult or tough question paper, NTA uses a normalisation procedure based on percentile scores so that the candidates are neither benefited nor disadvantaged. The true merit of the candidate can be identified through the normalisation procedure. Therefore, NTA compiles JEE Main 2022 scores for multiple session question papers through a normalisation procedure based on percentile scores.

What is Normalisation Procedure?
Normalisation procedure is a popular practice of comparing candidates’ score across multiple sessions question papers. Percentile equivalence is used for normalisation across all sections of the exam. Normalisation procedure is incorporated in all popular national and state-level entrance exams.
The normalisation process is used to derive a solution affected by different shifts and different question papers. It assures that applicants are not disadvantaged or benefitted as a result of the examination's difficulty level. The goal is to uphold the rule of law and find actual merit.
Normalization is a well-established method for comparing candidate scores over multiple-session examinations, and it is comparable to the method used in other major educational selection tests in India.

JEE Main 2022 Percentile Score
Percentile scores indicate the relative performance of all students who appear for the JEE Main 2022 exam. The marks obtained by students in JEE Main 2022 shall be transformed into a scale ranging from 100 to 0 for each JEE Main exam session of examines.
For example, Percentile scores denote the percentage of students who scored equal or below marks than the student who scored the highest marks in a particular session of JEE Main 2022 exam. The marks of these students will be transformed into a percentile. A percentile score is denoted for each session of JEE Main 2022, the topper of each session exam will get 100 percentile in JEE Main 2022.
The percentile score is the normalised score for the JEE Main 2022 exam, and it is used to prepare the merit/ rank list of 2022 JEE Main . In order to avoid inequality or bunching effect and reduce ties, JEE Main 2022 percentile scores are calculated up to 7 decimal places.
Highest Raw Score and Percentile Score
For each session in which the applicants attended, their highest raw score will be normalised to a 100 percentile score. For each session, the highest raw results will be turned into normalised percentile scores of 100.
Lowest Raw Score and Percentile Score
The total number of candidates taking the exam for each session is used to calculate the lowest raw score. For the lowest raw score, the percentile score is different.
How to Calculate Percentile Score in JEE Mains 2022?
The following are required to calculate JEE Main 2022 percentile score –
- Total number of candidates appeared in a particular session of JEE Main 2022 exam
- A highest raw score of a candidate in that session of JEE Main 2022
Note: The percentile score secured by a candidate will be different from the raw score. The percentile score is not similar to the percentage of marks obtained by a candidate.
JEE Main 2022 percentile score is calculated as per the formula is given below –
100 multiplied by total number of candidates appeared in a particular session of JEE Main 2022 exam with the raw score less than or equal to the candidate who scored highest raw score divided by the Total number of candidates appeared in that particular session.
In JEE Main 2022, 4 marks are awarded for each correct answer while 1 mark is deducted for each wrong answer. JEE Main 2022 exam will have 90 questions for 360 marks. The marks secured by candidates out of 360 shall not be considered for preparing ranks. The marks secured by candidates will be transformed into a scale ranging from 100 to 0 through normalisation procedure. Check the example below –
Let us assume that the JEE Main 2022 exam was conducted in four sessions and the highest and lowest score of the candidates is as follows –
Highest Raw Score Secured by a Student
Total Number of Candidates Appeared for the Exam
Total Number of Candidates who Scored Equal to or Less than the highest raw score of a candidate
Percentile of the Student who Scored Highest Marks
Explanation (Apply the Above Formula)
(28012/28012) X 100 = 100
(32541/32541) X 100 = 100
(41326/41326) X 100 = 100
(40603/40603) X 100 = 100
From the above example, it is clear that a candidate who secures the highest raw score in each session will get 100 percentile.
In this example, let us check the raw scores and percentile of students in a particular session of JEE Main 2022 -
Name of the Candidate
Raw Score Secured by the Candidate
Candidates Scored Less raw score than the candidate
Total Number of Candidates Appeared for the Exam
Percentile of the Student
335 out of 360
(28000/28012) X 100 = 99.9571612
330 out of 360
(27012/28012) X 100 = 96.4301013
310 out of 360
(20000/28012) X 100 = 71.3979722
270 out of 360
(16588/28012) X 100 = 59.2174782
230 out of 360
(13999/28012) X 100 = 49.9750107
99 out of 360
(6700/28012) X 100 = 23.9183207
58 out of 360
(400/28012) X 100 = 1.42795944
JEE Main 2022 Tie-Breaking Rules
If two or more candidates obtain the same percentile score in a session of JEE Main 2022, the following rules shall be applied to determine the order of the candidate in the merit list –
- Candidates scoring highest percentile in Mathematics shall be considered
- In case if there is a tie after incorporating the above rule, the highest marks obtained by candidates in Physics shall be considered
- If the tie still persists, highest percentile secured by candidates in Chemistry shall be considered
- If the tie still persists, the candidate with older in age shall be considered
Preparation of JEE Main 2022 Results for Each Session
NTA prepares the results for each session by considering the following components –
- A raw score of the candidates, i.e., total marks scored by candidates out of 360.
- Percentile score secured by the candidates, i.e., overall percentile, percentile scores in mathematics, Physics and Chemistry.
The percentile scores are prepared as per the examples mentioned above. A similar formula applies for denoting percentile scores for each subject.
JEE Main 2022 Ranking System
The JEE Main 2022 percentile score of all sessions will be calculated separately and the raw score of candidates in 3 subjects (Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry) and overall raw score shall be considered for preparing the overall rank list/ merit list. The final NTA score is prepared on the basis of an overall raw score and raw score in three subjects.
