JEE MAINS overall marking scheme.
For getting admission into NIT's and IIST(Now included in JEE MAINS), do I have to score 60% in JEE MAINS exam, or 60% in overall marks,i.e, 40% of the Boards and 60% of JEE MAINS score.
Yasir, for admission into NIT's and other centrally funded technical institutes, the marking scheme is
0.4 x (your normalised 12th board performance) + 0.6 x (jee main performance)
this formula will be used to calculate a merit ranking which will be used for admission into these institutes.
all 5 subects will be considered. but what should be our score in merit list of 0.4 x (your normalised 12th board performance) + 0.6 x (jee main performance) ?? 80 +?
For calculation of total score with 40 percent weightage of Board and 60 percent weightage of JEE(MAIN) , base of Board's and JEE(MAIN) has to be same. So correct formula would be: 0.4 x (your normalised 12th board performance as percentile score out of 100) + 0.6 x (jee main performance as percentage i.e. marks out of 100)
how much one needs to score in jee main( if he has 80% marks in 12th) to be in top 70,000 ie to qualify for jee advance?
