JEE Main April 2019 Result
After the examinations, candidates will get the scores of JEE Main 2019 April exam. Now, this will be only the score of the April examination. If you have appeared in both January and April exam, your best score will be used for AIR. If you have appeared only in the April exam, this will be the only score based on which you will be placed in the All India Rank (AIR) List. To check the JEE Main April 2019 Result, candidates have to visit nta.ac.in and log in to their registered account and check their scores.
This time the candidates will get the Percentile score (NTA score) section-wise and overall on their JEE Main 2019 Scorecard. Also, the AIR will be based on the overall NTA score or the overall percentile score.
Normalisation/Percentile Score/NTA Score
This time there will be no raw score based result in JEE Main 2019. This is clear when the result of the January attempt was out. Normalisation is done to eliminate any chances of uneven difficulty over the shifts and days in which the exam is held. Since now NTA is conducting the JEE main 2019 exam over multiple days and shifts it is important that the result is calculated using a fair method. Here comes the concept of “Normalisation procedure based on Percentile Score”.
Normalisation/percentile score formula = (100 X Total number of candidates who have appeared in the “session” with the raw score equal to less than the candidate’s) ÷ Total number of the candidates appeared in the ‟Session‟.

Now that National Testing Agency (NTA) has announced the dates and confirmed that JEE Main will be held twice a year and in online mode only, here are few frequent questions that we have been receiving. If you don’t see your doubts answered here, feel free to ask us in the comments below:
Q1: What is the advantage of twice a year exam?
A: There are many. Here we are listing a few of them:
- You will have two chances to perform.
- You can appear in either exam if you are unable to appear in any one of them.
- Also, if you feel you couldn’t do better on the first exam, you can learn from your mistakes and do well in the second one.
Q2: Does the criteria of 75% marks in boards still valid?
A: Yes, it is still valid.
Q3: If the examinations are in online mode only, how will we attend the drawing questions in Paper 2?
A: Do not worry, like NATA, NTA might provide sheets to attempt the drawing questions.
Q4: I am giving JEE for the third time. So I wanted to know that, can I appear in both January and April exam? Or if I give January exam it will be counted as my third attempt?
A: See, logically speaking, you must be able to give both the exams. As the score of one will be used for AIR and admission, it seems that both the attempts will be counted as one and not two. But we think we should wait for the detailed information brochure.
Q5: Can anyone who is going to give improvement for class 12 in 2019 can give jee mains in January as well as in April 2019?
A: Yes, they can!
