This year, JEE Main 2021 examination was conducted in four sessions – February, March, July and August-September periods. Candidates had been given a choice to appear for one-or more sessions and the best score would be considered for the final ranking process.
The agency has created the final merit list by combining the results of all four sessions. To ensure that each candidate gets a separate rank, the cut-off marks and percentile have been calculated up to the 7th percentile. Rather than age, marks scored in Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry will be considered to break the tie.
With such tough competition in the JEE Main 2021 ranking system, candidates had been wondering about the cut-off marks/ranks in each category. This would help them determine their chances of qualifying JEE Advanced 2021. Moreover, candidates could also get a sense of the colleges they can apply to based on their scores.
Now that the JEE Main 2021 cut-offs have been announced, here are the past-year records for candidates to see the difference in figures –

As predicted, JEE Main 2021 Session 4 witnessed the maximum number of students scoring the 100th percentile i.e., 44 candidates. The February session only saw 6 candidates scoring 100 while Session 3 and Session 4 had 13 and 17 students scoring the 100th percentile, respectively. With such tough and concentrated competition, cut-offs were expected to be higher compared to previous years. Surprisingly, that’s not the case, much to the relief of aspirants.
