JEE Main 2022 Marks vs Percentile

JEE Main Paper 2 score is calculated based on the marks obtained by the candidates in the entrance examination. The percentage is a candidate's marks scored, wherein percentile is the position or rank compared to other rank holders. 

This can help a candidate to predict their rank and find out the college they can study based on the secured marks. The percentile score is always measured on a scale of 100 to 0 for each session of examinees. 

The table below shows an approximate value of Marks vs Percentile for you to predict your rank.

Marks/Score Secured Percentile
100-200 70.66-75.88 %
120-140 75.99 - 80.75 %
150 - 160 80.23 - 83.89 %
160- 180 84.22-87.87 %
180-200 88.00-90.12 %
200-220 91.32 - 95.00 %
220 - 230 95.66- 97.32 %
230-245 95.66-97.32 %
230-245 97.99-98.55 %
250-260 98.88-98.91 %
265-280 99.22-99.65 %
270-280 99.88-99.91 %
290-300 99.95-99.98 %
>300 99.99 %

Based on the percentage calculated, you can have a rough idea of the rank secured. An approximate estimation is as follows: 

Percentile Ranking
70.66-75.88 % 61000 - 65000
75.99 - 80.75 % 50000 - 60000
80.23 - 83.89 % 25000 - 45000

JEE Main Paper 2 Question Papers

Calculate JEE Main 2022 rank based on NTA Percentile score

Step 1: Distribute the Examinees in two days and in two shifts per day. 

Candidates would be distributed in 4 sessions so that each session has an approximately equal number of candidates.

  • Session 1: Day-1 Shift-1, Session-2: Day-1 Shift-2
  • Session 3: Day-2 Shift-1 and Session-4: Day-2 Shift-2

Step 2: Preparation of Results for each Session 

The examination results for each session would be prepared in the form of Raw Scores and Percentiles Scores separately for each subject that is Aptitude, Maths, and Drawing in JEE Main paper 2 and the Total. 

The following 4 % must be calculated for each candidate in the Session:

Let T1, M1, A1, and D1 be the raw scores in Total, Mathematics, Aptitude, Drawing of a candidate and

T1P, M1P, A1P, and D1P be the percentile scores of Total, Mathematics, Aptitude, and Drawing of the candidate.

Step-3: Compilation of NTA score and Preparation of Overall Merit/ Rank List :

The Percentile scores for the Total Raw Score for all the four sessions (Session-1: Day-1 Shift-1, Session2: Day-1 Shift-2, Session-3: Day-2 Shift-1, and Session-4: Day-2 Shift-2) as calculated in Step-2 above will be merged and is called the NTA scores which are used for the preparation of overall Merit List/ Ranking.
