How to calculate probable score and rank by yourself?
NTA is expected to release the JEE Main April 2019 answer key on April 21. Candidates can gauge their score and rank with a fair degree of precision using this answer key. They can even calculate their chances of getting into various colleges based on previous records of these institutions.
However, you must follow the NTA guidelines strictly while calculating your score. Even one mark can potentially swing your result by a massive margin. Here’s how you can calculate your final score using NTA’s answer key.
Paper 1 contains a total of 90 questions. The highest possible score in Paper 1 is 360.
• Tally your answers against the correct answers provided in the answer key.
• For each correct answer, add 4 marks to your score.
• For every wrong answer, subtract 1 mark from your score.
• Calculate your final score using this calculation- (Number of correct answers x 4) – (Number of incorrect answers x1).
Paper 2 has a maximum score of 390. You can compute your score using the following calculation.
(Total number of correct answers in Aptitude and Mathematics test x 4 – Number of wrong answers in Aptitude and Mathematics x 1) + marks obtained in the Drawing test.
How to calculate rank based on percentile?
A total of 9.34 lakh candidates have registered for the April JEE Main examination. 6.69 candidates have already appeared for the January test. Around 72% of those who took the January test have also registered for a second time in the hope of bettering their scores.
So, if you have your percentile score with you, you can easily calculate your approximate rank.
Apart from the percentile score, there is also a minimum qualifying mark for JEE Advanced. In 2018, it was 74 for General category candidates, 45 for OBC, 29 for SC, 24 for ST and -35 for PwD.
