Check how to calculate JEE Main 2021 score from the answer keys
- Keep a rough sheet of paper ready and open the answer key.
- While checking for answers, award yourself four marks for every right answer and deduct one mark if the answer is wrong. However, in the numeric section, there is no negative marking, so if your answer is wrong in that section, then mark it as zero.
- Finally, add the total marks and get to know your likely score
Candidates should note that a merit list will be created by the agency to allot ranks to students. To avoid any ties and give each candidate a different rank, the percentile scores will be calculated up to seven decimal places.
Also, those who are not satisfied with the answers keys after its release can raise objections by paying a fee and attaching required documents to validate their stance.
Furthermore, the objections raised by candidates will be analysed by experts. If your objection is valid and effective, the processing fee will be refunded and the changes will be made in the final answer key. Moreover, the window to raise objections on the answer key will be open only for a limited period of days.
