Cut-off marks (percentage) for JEE Main Result 2020

The cut-off indicates the minimum scores required for selection as a student. The cut-off marks are determined to ascertain the eligibility for admission in the Government of India approved Engineering, Medical, Architecture, and Planning institution.

The National Test Agency will release the category-wise cut-off marks along with the published JEE Main Result. Such marks usually are declared along with the results though there are exceptions in this regard.

The National Test Agency fixes two parameters while declaring such cut-offs. It could be determined on how complicated the questions were. Else, it could be determined on the basis of score too.

However, based on experience, we can come out with a projected cut-off score. It needs mentioning that cut-off marks are different for several categories of students. The number of students thus appeared in the examination is a countable factor in fixing the cut-off marks.

Expected Cut-off for JEE Main Examination, January 2020

CATEGORY Expected Cut-off
Common Rank List 89.75
Gen EWS 78.21
OBC – NCL 74.31
ST 44.33
SC 54.01

Percentile Score

Percentile Score is prepared by normalizing the Raw Score obtained by a candidate. It helps in pointing out those candidates who have scored equal or less concerning a previously fixed score-line.
Percentile scoring system is also used to prepare the merit list. The formula for such scoring is:

PercentageCheck  Percentage Score
Percentage -How to check Percentile
Marks obtained / Total marks (x) 100100 × the number of candidates appeared in a session with raw scores equal or less than a prefixed number divided by the total number of candidates appeared in the session.


The result of JEE Main Examination 2020 is used to prepare the All India Ranking of the successful candidates. In the cases where a student is applied for both part of the examination, the percentile score is used to allocate the student with a rank.

Significant components of JEE Main Result, 2020

After NTA assumes the charge of conducting the JEE Main Examination, it brought forth various important changes about which an appearing must have some idea. Such changes can be enumerated as under:

RAW Score:  It refers the original marks scored by a candidate in the examination. These marks are offered on the basis of marking scheme fixed by the organization. The marking scheme suggests a score of +4 for each correct answer and -1 for each negative. NTA does not display this score. Instead, it announces the NTA Score.

NTA Score: These scores are normalized scores of a candidate. NTA uses the normalization principle in calculating the percentile score. Such ratings are required as the test is held in multiples session over several days. NTA Score reduces the difficulty level within the same units.

The JEE Main Result gives us an accurate appreciation of the performance made by a candidate. The candidate will have to check four NTA scores for the following:

  • National Test Agency Score in Physics.
  • NTA Score in Chemistry.
  • NTA Score in Mathematics.
  • Total NTA Score.

AIR:  It means the All India Ranking. All India ranks are most important in JEE Main Result. Seats are allotted in various colleges and institutions based on these ranks. Therefore, it indicates the individual position of a candidate concerning the NTA parameters.

Determination of AIR

As experienced from the earlier examination held earlier, AIR for the JEE Main Examination will be based on NTA Score.
The main examination is held separately in two separate parts. Calculation of All India Ranking is done on the basis of several factors that are independent of the two parts. Such elements are referred to as Tie-breaks for calculating ranking.

Tie-breaking while calculating AIR for Part 1

In the cases where AIR for two or several candidates appears the same, NTA practices a tie-breaking principle to bring a solution out.  The process of tie-breaking will be like:
  • Candidates that have scored higher NTA score will get higher rank
  • While the Tie is not breakable, the NTA score of Physics is taken into account.
  • NTA scores of Chemistry is considered for cases for persistent of ties
  • Candidates belonging to higher age are offered more upper AIR
  • Same AIR is being provided to multiple candidates if the Tie is not broken despite adopting all of the above methods

The process of tie-breaking while calculating AIR for Part 2

In calculating AIR for paper 2 for JEE Main Result, the complexities are fixed thus:
  • Candidates having higher score in Mathematics are automatically considered for more top ranking
  • Scores in the aptitude tests are considered in the next phase
  • Marks in Drawing Test are used in resolving issues if Tie prevails
  • Older candidates are offered higher ranks
  • Same AIR is provided to candidates in cases where the age is found to be the same.

Despite the disorientation in the industry, the responses towards the Engineering part and Architecture are overwhelming. The trend is slightly reversed this year. From 9.41l in the previous year, the number of applicants this year has come down to 9.34L. We have got the information from the official source of NTA.

More than 81000 registrations came from the economically weaker section, and a new category introduced this year. Such a massive number of listings in the new category compelled the authority to slash down the reservations for the open class. Around 90000 applications from this category were summarily rejected.

An account for the drop of application for the BArch entrance examination could be the authoritative reduction in the number of maximum attempts. The authority of the test is continually trying to increase the number of female applicants, the total number of applications in the second part of the JEE Main Examination 2020 shows a declining trend.

The result in these types of tests may be done after the application of the normalization process. The process of normalization helps to ensure that no applicant suffers owing to the difference in difficulty level of exam shift and session. Candidates are thus able to score high.

The JEE Main Examination 2020 result is prepared on the basis of the following:

Raw Scores ­­­ - NTA has released a scoring pattern based on marking scheme. It helps a candidate credited with +4 for every correct answer. However, the exam pattern incorporates a negative marking system. Each of the negative responses gets credited with -1 for wrong answers.
The conducting body never discloses the raw scores. Instead, they use the final answer key to determine the result.

Main Raw Score, i.e., a product of the number of correct answers multiplied by four less number of incorrect answers.
