JEE Mains & AdvancedJEE Main exams are important for students who aspired to be an engineer and want to pass out from reputed institutes like IITs, NITs, IIITs, etc., they are the dream institutes for any engineering aspirants. Of Course, many students try their best to succeed in JEE Main and JEE Advance exams and pass with flying colors. However, after clearing JEE Mains students should be prepared beforehand and set the target, or being specific they should analyze and prepare accordingly for the cutoff range. JEE Main 2023 cut-off marks have been released by the NTA on their website. JEE Main cutoff marks are the minimum cutoff marks students should score to qualify for the JEE Advance exam. Cutoff marks are issued for each category viz., general, OBC, SC, and ST by NTA. Students should always refer to the cutoff marks of the previous year. NTA also issues the category-wise merit lists of students who secured All India Ranks.
Factors Considered By NTA To Set Up Cutoff Marks
NTA will calculate the percentile for each candidate in a particular session as follows:
- Total Percentile:- Number of students who appeared for a session in JEE Mains and have a raw score equal to or less than the total raw score scored by the topper /total students who have appeared for the exams * 100.
- Mathematics Percentile:- Number of students who appeared for the mathematics exam for a session in JEE Mains and have a raw score equal to or less than the highest raw score scored by the student in mathematics /total students who have appeared for the exams * 100.
- Physics Percentile:- Number of students who appeared for the physics exam for a session in JEE Mains and have a raw score equal to or less than the highest raw score obtained by the student in physics /total students who have appeared for the exams * 100.
- Chemistry Percentile:- Number of students who appeared for the Chemistry exam for a session in JEE Mains and have a raw score equal to or less than the highest raw score obtained by the student in chemistry /total students who have appeared for the exams * 100.
Factors That Influence The Percentile Calculation
- The raw score of the students:- Individual score of students before the calculation of percentile. It gives an estimate of how much he/she has scored in exams out of 360 marks. These marks are not normalized to 100. As it is done in the case of the highest scorer.
- Quality of the paper: The difficulty of the level exam also influences percentile calculation. For example, the percentile calculation of a student will differ for the same student who attempted the exam in another session.
- Performance of the other students appearing in the exam: To calculate the score of a student in session 1 depends on the performance of other students who have appeared in session 1. Students who have scored the highest will be normalized to 100.
Rules Applied By NTA If One Or More Students Secure The Same Percentile In JEE Main Exams
- Students scoring the highest percentile in mathematics will be given the first preference.
- Then also the tie exists between the students after applying the above rule for the student who has scored highest percentile in physics will be given first preference.
- After applying the above rules also the tie doesn't break, the student who scored highest in chemistry will be given first preference.
- If after applying the above rule tie persists then the older student will be given first preference.
Importance of Normalisation Method
Overview
Normalization procedures help NTA to prepare JEE scores unbiasedly and decide the ranks and merit lists of students. Fourth time this method is assimilated into JEE Main exams. This method helps students to calculate and estimate their scores on the exam. On this basis, they can assess which college they can get admission to.
By comparing scores unanimously from various sessions of JEE Main exam students can estimate the percentile and judge their performance and can take decisions accordingly. At all state level and national levels, this technique has been used widely.
This normalization process helps in preparing unbiased results as JEE Main exams are conducted in two sessions and 2 shifts in each session, moreover, different sessions have different levels of difficulty in each session. To ensure justice and unbiasedness in results follow the rule of equality and justice this procedure has introduced. It is also used in major educational tests conducted nationwide.
Importance of normalization method:-
- Despite maintaining the same level of difficulty in question papers of each session it may vary due to exams in two sessions with two shifts in each session. There may be the likelihood that the difficulty level varies in every session there comes the role of normalization of the procedure.
- Students who appear in a session that has a higher level of difficulty tend to lose marks as compared to students who appear in a session with a lower level of difficulty. There comes the role of normalization procedure by calculating and deciding the score at the same scale.
- By introducing normalization procedures NTA has assured students that every student has equal opportunity to be judged at the same level of scale without any student being benefited or deluded.
