JEE Main 2022 Tie-Breaking Policy Revised, Age and Application Number will be taken into account.
JEE Main 2022 Tie-breaking policy has been revised by NTA. Candidates’ ages and application numbers, in ascending order, will now be considered. Learn more about it here.
JEE Main 2022: The National Testing Agency (NTA) has announced a few amendments to the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2022 tie-breaker criteria. According to the most recent JEE Main information pamphlet, age and application number will be considered in ascending order for the tie-breaker criteria in the JEE Main 2022. Previously, the age factor had been removed by the agency. However, starting of this year, it has been restored as a condition for severing relationships.
This policy will be used to break a tie between two candidates who received equal marks in paper 1 (B.E./B.Tech). The first session of the JEE Main will be held from June 20th to June 29th, 2022, and the second session will be held from July 21st to July 30th, 2022.
New Changes to the JEE Main 2022 Tie-Breaking Policy
The National Testing Agency (NTA) has reinstated age as a criterion for breaking ties in JEE Main 2022. The NTA used this policy until 2020, although it removed the age condition from the tie-breaking procedure last year. The NTA has made another change to the JEE Main tie-breaking criteria, which is application numbers in ascending order.
This means that if two candidates receive the same marks or percentage in the admission exams and their ties cannot be resolved through other means, the individual who applied for the exam first will be given priority in the merit list. The agency will determine the ranks based on two criteria: Age limit and the Amount of applications received.
JEE Main 2022 Tie-Breaking Policy
To avoid a tie between two JEE Main applicants, the NTA calculates their scores up to seven decimal points. If a tie persists after computing scores up to seven decimal points, the NTA employs a tie-breaking policy. Look at the following –
