How to calculate rank for JEE Mains 2019

National Testing Agency has announced the results today for JEE mains 2019 January attempt. A lot of students are curious about the ranks and percentile calculation based on the normalized score provided by NTA.

Percentile scores will be used by NTA to rank students, which will further depend on the number of students appeared for the exam.

The exact percentage of people ahead of you is  - 100 minus your total percentile score

Now, 874469 are the number of candidates appeared for JEE mains 2019 January attempt

Rank Formula = (100 - your total score) X 874469 /100.

The interesting question here is what if the number of students appearing for Jee Mains April 2019 attempt is much more ( which will obviously be the case), what will happen to rank? How will it be affected?

Suppose - The number of candidates for the April exam increased to 1400000, then your final rank now will be (100 - your total score) X 1400000/100


Let’s take an example here:

Suppose your total Percentile is 90.70

Your Rank will be ( 100-90.70 ) X 874469/100, which is 81325.

Now if the candidates increase to 1400000 in April, your rank will be (100 - 90.70) x 1400000/100, which is 1,30,200.


As per previous year JEE mains, Any rank below 2,00,000 qualify for JEE advanced.
