JEE Main 2016 Rank Predictor
Candidates can know the expected JEE Main 2016 Rank predicted before the actual results through a tool called the Rank Predictor. Every year, based on the different statistics from previous years and considering the difficulty levels of this year, JEE Main’s Rank in 2016 can be predicted.

Some of the coaching institutes that provide rank predictors for JEE Main 2016 are FIITJEE Rank Predictor JEE Main (JEE Main Rank Predictor 2016 FIITJEE), Resonance Rank Predictor JEE Main 2016, Allen Rank Predictor 2016 for JEE Main, Narayana Classes JEE Main Rank Predictor 2016, Aakash JEE Main 2016 Rank Predictor etc.
Board Exam marks
These rank predictors try to match with the JEE Mains of their prospective top ranks and their corresponding marks. They also have to consider the board exams expected marks because of the aforementioned rule that was implemented from the year 2013 that board exams have 40% nominal weightage in the final rank of JEE Main.
40% is a huge number and when normalised it can take your rank through a considerable change and can play a key factor. Candidates are required to know or have an idea about the marks they are likely to obtain in their respective board exam and use the JEE Main Answer Key to know the JEE Main score.
Candidates are also required to have a rough idea on the percentile against the board marks percentage.
JEE Main Normalized Marks vs All India Ranks
|Expected JEE Main Normalized Marks||Expected JEE Main All India Ranks|
|>320||Less than 100|
|Less than 80||>280,000|
Procedure for Normalisation of qualifying examination marks for JEE Main 2015:
A0 = Aggregate marks obtained by each student in JEE Main 2015
B0 = Aggregate marks in a particular board computed from a list of five subjects meeting the JEE Main 2015 Eligibility Criteria. This is used to compile the percentile (P) of each student to get the corresponding JEE Main 2015 marks.
B1 = JEE Main 2015 aggregate marks corresponding to percentile (P) at the All- India level
B2 =JEE Main 2015 aggregate marks corresponding to percentile (P) among the set of aggregate scores obtained in the JEE Main 2015 by the students of that board
Computation of normalised board score of the candidate:
Bfinal = 0.5 * (B1 + B2)
Calculation of the composite score for JEE Main 2015 Merit List:
C = 0.6 * A0 + 0.4 * Bfinal
The composite score arrived at will be the basis for the JEE Main 2015 Merit Ranks.
JEE Main Normalized Marks in 2015
Based on the above process, the JEE Main Normalized Marks for 2015 is calculated as follows. The number of total students plays a factor into calculating percentiles. Note that the given table is for CBSE, the group where the most number of candidates belong.
