JEE-Main: Top 2 positions for Andhra boys

Andhra Pradesh’s K V R Hemant Kumar Chodipilli grabbed the second position in the all-India merit list of the candidates who qualified in the nation-wide test held earlier this month.

Parth Laturai from Rajasthan came third.

Each of the top three JEE-Main qualifiers secured 350 marks out of a total of 360 in the test.

Their all-India ranks, however, varied as examiners compared their performance under a tie-breaking formula.

In case there is a tie in scores, the final assessment of the performance of such candidates is decided looking at their scores first in Mathematics paper and then Physics. Candidates obtaining higher marks will be given a “better rank”.

If the scores in the two individual subjects are also the same, the ratio of the positive marks and negative marks obtained by the candidate is considered to award the rank.

“Candidates having higher absolute value of the ratio will be given a better rank,” the CBSE said.

A total of 11,35,084 students had registered for the JEE Main held in pen and paper mode at 113 centres on April 8 while the computer-based test was held on April 15 and April 16 at 258 cities across the country. As many as 2,31,024 students out of over 11 lakh JEE-Main aspirants were declared qualified for appearing in the JEE-Advance.
