JEE Main Percentile Vs Rank: What Is Percentile Score?

Percentile score tells how you have performed in comparison to all other students who appeared for the exam. It is neither the percentage score (which is the percentage of the maximum marks that you have secured) nor the raw marks (absolute marks secured by you).

Percentile score tells you what percentage of the total number of students who appeared for the exam scored less than or equal to that particular percentile in that examination.

The formula to calculate percentile score is as under:

Percentile Score of a Candidate = 100 x (Number of candidates who secured a raw score (or actual score) EQUAL TO OR LESS than the candidate) / (Total number of candidates who appeared in that session).

With this formula, the raw marks of the candidates are normalized and expressed as Percentile Score (also called NTA Score) and the discrepancy caused by variation of difficulty level across various sessions are eliminated.
