JEE Main 2019

The National Test Agency has announced the JEE Main 2019 Result on January 19 on the official website of JEE Main. Around fifteen candidates have scored 100 percentile, said HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar in January Session.

In his tweets, Prakash Javadekar congratulated the students who cracked JEE Main with good grades.  He also congratulated NTA for releasing result on time. “For the first time, @DG_NTA has used the percentile based scoring which is way more scientific than anything else, he added.

This is the first time when the students will be awarded percentiles. Earlier JEE Main candidates were given ranks on the basis of their score in the exam. However, the students can predict their rank with the help of JEE Main Rank Predictor using their awarded percentile. The format of JEE Main Result has completely been transformed. The mechanism to declare the result is switched from Ranking to Percentile methodology which is considered more accurate and meticulous.

“The overall score would be declared after the 2nd JEE Main examination which is going to be held in April 2019”, he further added a statement. “It will be a golden opportunity for students to improve their performance and score better than before”. The JEE Main Exam takes place twice a year and candidates can appear in both exams. Appearing twice in the same year is considered as one attempt when taking into consideration the three-attempt limit of JEE Main exam.

Once the JEE (Main) April-2019 examination is done, the ranks of the candidates who appeared in January and April 2019 examinations will be released taking into consideration better of the two NTA scores of all candidates.
