Expected MARKS Vs PERCENTILE for JEE Main 2021- How to Calculate It

JEE Main Expected MARKS Vs PERCENTILE is a hot topic of discussion among the students. As the D-day has arrived, we are going to discuss the relationship between marks and percentile and what you can expect from JEE 2021.

In the further discussion, we will take a look over how much percentile can be secure on the basis of marks scored by you in JEE Main 2021. This is a predicted analysis as there are no guidelines shared by NTA or JEE for the same.

Every year nearly 6 lakhs students attempt the examination and try their luck. Like previous years. this year as well there are a huge lot of students aiming to crack the examination with 100 percent efforts for JEE preparation

JEE ranks are completely dependent on the marks you have secured in your examination. Based on your marks, a percentile is calculated which is a measure of how well you have performed among a number of candidates attempting the single test.

There is no perfect method to predict the rank as it is dynamic in every exam. Every year, the number of candidates changes, the level of difficulty changes so the method of calculating the data also changes.

The National Testing Agency (NTA) has clearly explained the normalization process for calculating percentile secured in JEE Main 2021. Normalization process helps in even up the difficulty level of the exam conducted in multiple sessions on the scheduled dates. Although, there is no appropriate prediction of the exact rank. It might differ from the actual rank.

Lesser number range predicted on the basis of tough paper on the other hand, max number range is based on how easier the question paper was. For obvious reasons, the maximum number of shifts are inversely proportional to the level of difficulty the question paper will have. More shifts, the easier the paper is expected to be and you must be aware of the fact that if you receive easy paper, more is the competition you can face. However it is also important to keep a check on how your JEE preparation is.

Following as a predicted data from the previous years marks and percentile observations:

Percentile Marks in tough paper Marks in easy paper
91 70 84
92 74 88
93 79 93
94 83 100
95 87 111
96 108 125
97 119 135
98 136 146
98.5 150 158
99 175 190
99.5 201 225

For every answer you mark correct, you may jump the ladder of almost 1 percentile or more depending on the level of question paper and every decimal value even matter while calculating your percentile. On every change in percentile, your rank will vary. So be very careful while marking the answers because everything is interdependent and this can change your branch in your desired college as well. However rank and college allotment is again a different agenda to think about.

There are multiple factors kept in mind while evaluating the percentile from marks and further, while allotting ranks, certain ties are also kept into consideration. This year, it is expected that the marking would be easy keeping in view about the additional section in the question paper.

If you are still confused about what is the safe score one can aim to get, the answer is again it depends on the slot of the examination. First, let’s understand the concept of safe score. It is a score which can keep you on a safe side not only will make you eligible to take JEE Advance exam but also can fetch you a decent rank/ secure a seat for you in NIT college.


For phase 1, it is expected that you must secure 175+ marks and for May attempt can reach up to 205+ marks. Once you are sure about securing a score approximately 200 during the examination, don’t be greedy for marks and avoid marking answers on the basis of your guesses as already stated above, every decimal matters in order to decide your final college and branch.

Do your studies religiously because these crucial days are important to keep your mental pace and your JEE preparation intact. Don’t let your two years of hustle go into vein.
