JEE Advanced 2017 Tie Breaker

The tie-breaker formula is implemented in the examination to segregate and a lot separate scores to different candidates. The candidates scoring same marks in various subjects of the examination are checked on certain criteria and allotted the scores. The tie breaker system has been modified to eliminate the gender imbalance since there are more number of male applicants than the female candidates appearing for the examination.

What’s New?

The new proposal has been issued for the new tie breaker formula which gives advantage to the feminine candidates over the male candidates if they score equal marks. The scores are calculated according to the currently existing tie breaker formula also but if the tie exists between a male candidate and a female candidate then female gets higher score.

If tie persists between two feminine candidates and two male candidates then in any case both the female candidates shall score more than the male candidates. The current tie-breaker system shall be applicable for the segregation of scores for the female and male candidates separately.

Current Tie-Breaker Formula

The existing tie breaker formula includes the calculation of score of various candidates on the basis of the toughest subject out of all the tested subjects in the examination. This criteria considers the overall performance of all the candidates in particular subjects. The hardest subject is found and the further tie breaker system is carried out.

The candidate with higher score than the other in the toughest subject is considered for a higher score and lower rank than the other in case they collectively score equal marks. This criteria is used for breaking the tie between two or more male candidates/two or more female candidates. If the tie persists when only one subject is considered then the candidate’s performance in the second hardest subject is checked.
