Hi,

In JEE Mains, you marsk and board percentile are combined to derive you rank. Based upon that rank colleges and branched are alloted.

Understanding the Percentile Score: The percentile score of a candidate shows the score of the candidate with respect to the number of students who have scored less that the candidate whose percentile score is being calculated.

The formula to calculate the Percentile Score of any candidate from a particular board is:

Number of candidates from the board with aggregate marks less than the candidate x100

Total number of the candidates that have appeared for the Board exams

To explain it clearly, the JEE Main 2014 Brochures cites examples as below:

In a case where 13711 students who appeared for the board exams of say X board

Example 1: where a student has scored 50% in the X board exams and there are 2218 candidates who have scored less than the candidates ie less than 50%:

2218 x 100 = 16.18

13711

Here the percentile score of the candidate from X Board is 16.18 while his percentage in X Board is 50%

Example 2: where a student has scored 60% in the X board exams and there are 6865 candidates who have scored less than the candidates ie less than 60%:

6865 x 100 = 50.07

13711

Here the percentile score of the candidate from X Board is 50.07 while his percentage in X Board is 60%

Example 3: where a student has scored 90% in the X board exams and there are 13615 candidates who have scored less than the candidates ie less than 90%:

13615 x 100 = 99.3

13711

Here the percentile score of the candidate from X Board is 99.3 while his percentage in X Board is 90%

Which subjects will be taken into account for the Percentile Score?

Five subjects will be taken into account for calculation of percentile and normalization of qualifying examination marks for paper 1(B.E./B. Tech.) and paper 2 (B. Arch./B. Planning) of JEE Main 2014.

These subjects are:

Language,

Physics,

Mathematics,

Any one of (Chemistry, Biology, Biotechnology, Technical Vocational Subject),

Any other subject.

Note: In case a candidate has appeared in six subjects in the qualifying examination, the subject (fifth or sixth) with better marks will be considered.

Marks for a particular year only will be considered. Therefore marks for either 2013 or 2014 or so will be considered.

This means that candidates who appear for improvement will have to appear for all the subjects and not one or two which they wish to improve in.

Important: Candidates who are appearing in the improvement examination to improve their qualifying examination marks will get only one chance to inform JEE (Main) Unit as to which year qualifying examination marks have to be considered for the purpose of declaration of final merit of JEE Main 2014.

What will be considered for JEE Main 2014 and JEE Advanced 2014?

The percentile score a candidate gets in the board will mainly contribute to normalized marks to be used for the Merit Ranks of JEE Main 2014 and for qualifying for JEE Advanced 2014.

Candidates may note that the normalized Qualifying examination marks will be based on the position of the candidate in their respective Board (i.e. the above mentioned percentile score).

It is important to note here that the weightage of normalized qualifying examination marks is only for deciding ranking of JEE Main 2014 for admissions to all Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs)/ NITs/IIITs but not for IITs.

Factors used in calculation of normalized qualifying examination marks:

Marks of all the students in that Board whose subject combinations meet the eligibility criteria of JEE Main 2014

Marks of all the students in JEE Main 2014

Procedure for Normalization of Qualifying examination marks for JEE Main 2014 is as follows:

A0 = Aggregate marks obtained by each student in JEE Main 2014.

B0 = Aggregate marks in a particular board computed from a list of five subjects meeting the JEE Main 2014 Eligibility Criteria. This is used to compile the percentile (P) of each student to get the corresponding JEE Main 2014 marks

B1 = JEE Main 2014 aggregate marks corresponding to percentile (P) at the All- India level.

B2 =JEE Main 2014 aggregate marks corresponding to percentile (P) among the set of aggregate scores obtained in the JEE Main 2014 by the students of that board.

Computation of normalized board score of the candidate:

Bfinal = 0.5 * (B1 + B2)

Note: For admission to the CFTIS, the JEE Main 2014 marks and the Normalized board marks will be used in the ratio of 60: 40.

Calculation of the composite score for JEE Main 2014 Merit List:

C = 0.6 * AO + 0.4 * Bfinal

This Composite score arrived at will be the basis for the JEE Main 2014 Merit Ranks.
