The National Testing Agency (NTA) has released the provisional answer keys for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2021 Session 4 exam. Candidates are also getting an opportunity to raise objections against the answer key till September 08, 2021, on the official website – jeemain.nta.nic.in. Authorities will be considering and incorporating the valid objections into the provisional answer key to release the final draft. Based on this, results will be curated and announced soon after, probably by September 10, 2021.
JEE Main 2021 Session 4, conducted by the NTA, is the last attempt for this year. After announcing the results for the last session, authorities will create the final merit list, merging the results of all four sessions. Hence, the percentile or rank obtained in the last session becomes all the more crucial for candidates. Interestingly, while waiting for the results to come out, aspirants have been using rank predictor tools available online, specifically the Allen Rank Predictor by Allen Coaching Institute. Candidates can visit the website, allen.ac.in, and enter their name, mobile number, email ID, exam date and time as well as expected marks. After submitting these, candidates can get their tentative JEE Main rank.
Any reliable rank predictor available online may not provide the exact rank, but a tentative range close to which the actual rank will exist. Using the tentative range, candidates can determine whether they will qualify for the JEE Advance 2021 examination or any good engineering college. Hence, the rank predictor tool is playing an important role ahead of the JEE Main 2021 Session 4 results.
The final merit list for JEE Main 2021 will be curated based on the best marks and NTA score or percentile scored by the candidate in one or more sessions. Based on the marks obtained, each candidate will be allotted a separate rank and position in the merit list. So, in terms of importance, the order of priority is as follows – JEE Main Marks > Percentile / NTA Score > Rank
In case two candidates have scored the same JEE Main 2021 marks, then the marks scored in each subject will be considered in the order of priority – Physics > Mathematics > Chemistry. Hence, the JEE Main 2021 marks are of paramount importance, especially while allotting ranks. However, the NTA score or percentile is a score out of 100 allotted to each candidate, comparing his/her score to a topper’s marks.
The JEE Main 2021 rank determines whether a candidate will be eligible to appear for the JEE Advanced examination. Only the top 2,50,000 candidates will be shortlisted to compete for a seat in the IITs (Indian Institute of Technology).
So far, a total of 6 candidates scored 100 percentile in the JEE Main 2021 February session, while 13 students managed to score 100 percentile in the March 2021 session. In case of the third session held in July 2021, 17 students scored the 100th percentile. Due to this increasing trend and the overall difficulty level of the fourth session, more candidates are expected to score 100 percentile in the fourth session.
Apart from the JEE Main 2021 Session 4 results, the JEE Advanced 2021 registration process is scheduled to commence from September 11 to 16, 2021, up to 5 pm. Thereafter, the exam, by all the IITs, is scheduled to take place on October 03, 2021.
