The exam conducting body i.e. NTA uses the following normalization steps for the preparation of JEE Main merit/rank list:
- Step-1: Candidates can refer to the conduct of the exam. JEE Main entrance exam is conducted in two shifts over four days.
- Step-2: The result for each session will be prepared using raw scores.
- Step-3: The last step would be the compilation of the NTA scores and preparation of JEE Main merit list.
For the final preparation of the JEE Main 2020 result, the four NTA scores (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and overall score) of the first attempt will be merged for the compilation of results and preparation of overall Merit List/Ranking.
