How to see JEE Main result?
Around 7.32 lakh students are awaiting their JEE Main results. Besides the official website of JEE (jeemain.nta.nic.in), the results link will also be activated on ntaresults.nic.in. Students will need their application number, date of birth, and password to access the result link. Soon after the release of JEE Main result, the registration process for JEE Advanced 2021 will commence.
What happens after JEE Main?
Top 2.5 lakh students who meet the JEE Main cut-off will be eligible to apply for JEE Advanced 2021. JEE Advanced is an entrance exam to get admissions into the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs). However, others who do not register for JEE Advanced can still register themselves for JoSAA counseling for admissions in NITs and other government engineering colleges.
How is the JEE merit list prepared?
Instead of raw marks, JEE Main's final results are based on percentile scores. If the candidates have appeared for JEE Main in all four sessions this year, and managed to qualify each time, their best out of all the attempts will be considered for the merit list. Students who shared the same score undergo tie-breaking criteria where marks in maths, physics, chemistry were examined.
How does the NTA decide JEE cut-off?
There are four key criteria that are considered by the NTA while deciding the cut-off for JEE Main. These include last year's exam trends, the number of seats offered by the participating institutions, the number of candidates, and the difficulty level of the exam.
