Is there any error in the percentile calculation for JEE Main 2024?
The results for JEE Main 2024 have finally been announced but some students are satisfied with their results and claim that there is an error in the percentile calculation for JEE Main 2024. The students are taking over social media where students called it a NTA blunder.
According to some sources, NTA has released the percentile score based on the relative performance of all students who appeared for the exam. The marks attained are converted into a scale ranging from 100 to 0 for each session. Here is the formula to calculate the JEE Main 2024 percentile:
100 multiplied by the number of students who appeared in the session with a raw score equal to or less than the candidate / total number of candidates who appeared in that session. The NTA said that the percentile score of all the lowest raw scores will depend on the total number of candidates who have taken the examination for their respective sessions.
One of the students took to X and wrote that all the marks to percentile predictions have substantial differences, any error again in calculations by NTA. Another student wrote that for a difference of 3 marks, there are 500 students in between, it looks like normalization has had a huge impact this time and even 260 is not giving 99.9.
