The final answer keys for JEE Advanced 2021 along with the results will be displayed on October 15, 2021. To log in using the candidate portal, one has to use their JEE Advanced registration number, date of birth and mobile number.
Please note that only those candidates who have appeared for the JEE Advanced papers will be considered for the ranking. Marks will be calculated based on the combined marks of the subject in both papers. For example, the marks obtained by a candidate in Physics will be equal to the marks secured in the Physics part of the first paper along with the marks secured in the Physics part of the second paper. This rule is followed for Chemistry and Mathematics as well.
As a result, the aggregate marks obtained in JEE Advanced 2021 will be the sum of marks secured by the candidate in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. If two candidates secure the same rank, then a tie-breaking policy will be followed. In the first case, the candidate having higher positive marks will get the higher rank. If this does not work, then the candidate having higher marks in Mathematics will get the higher rank. Even if this rule does not break the tie, then the candidate who has obtained higher marks in Physics will get the higher rank. In case the tie persists, then both the candidates will be awarded the same rank.
