Criteria for Preparation of Merit List (Rank List) for JEE Main 2020

All participating institutes that follow Centralised Seat Allocation Process shall use the Rank List, which shall be based on the criteria mentioned here.

In JEE Main 2020, no weightage is awarded to marks in class 12th or equivalent qualifying examination for preparing Rank List for JEE Main 2020. NTA will use the raw score of JEE Main exam - Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry and total scores for the purpose of creating the Merit list or Rank List.

Breaking Tie in case of Equal Marks

If there is a tie in the aggregate of marks of two or more candidates, order of merit for such candidates shall be decided in the following order

Rank list for admission to B.E./B.Tech (in Institutions other than IITs)

  1. Resolution by marks obtained in Mathematics in JEE Main - 2020. Candidate obtaining higher marks will be given better rank
  2. Resolution by marks obtained in Physics in the JEE Main - 2020. Candidates obtaining higher marks will be given better rank
  3. Resolution by marks obtained in Chemistry in the JEE Main - 2020. Candidates obtaining higher marks will be given better rank
  4. Resolution by finding the number of negative responses in the paper for each candidate. Candidate having lesser negative responses will be given better rank
  5. Rank determination by age of the candidate. If one candidate is older than another, then the older candidate will have a higher rank compared to the younger candidate

If the resolution is not possible after this criterion, candidates will be given the same rank.

Rank list for admission to B.Arch (in Institutions other than IITs)

  1. Resolution by marks obtained in Mathematics in JEE Main - 2020. Candidate obtaining higher marks will be given better rank
  2. Resolution by marks obtained in Aptitude Test in the JEE Main - 2020. Candidates obtaining higher marks will be given better rank
  3. Resolution by marks obtained in Drawing Test in the JEE Main - 2020. Candidates obtaining higher marks will be given better rank
  4. Resolution by finding the number of negative responses in the paper for each candidate. Candidate having lesser negative responses will be given better rank
  5. Rank determination by age of the candidate. If one candidate is older than another, then the older candidate will have a higher rank compared to the younger candidate

If the resolution is not possible after this criterion, candidates will be given the same rank.

Rank list for admission to B.Planning (in Institutions other than IITs)

  1. Resolution by marks obtained in Mathematics in JEE Main - 2020. Candidate obtaining higher marks will be given better rank
  2. Resolution by marks obtained in Aptitude Test in the JEE Main - 2020. Candidates obtaining higher marks will be given better rank
  3. Resolution by marks obtained in Planning Based Questions in the JEE Main - 2020. Candidates obtaining higher marks will be given better rank
  4. Resolution by finding the number of negative responses in the paper for each candidate. Candidate having lesser negative responses will be given better rank
  5. Rank determination by age of the candidate. If one candidate is older than another, then the older candidate will have a higher rank compared to the younger candidate

If the resolution is not possible after this criterion, candidates will be given the same rank.

Note: Any participating institute which does not use the Centralised Seat Allocation Process will prepare its own ranking, based on the performance in JEE Main 2020 and any other criteria decided by it.
