How to Tally Answers in JEE Main OMR Sheet?

Once candidates have viewed the answer key and OMR sheet/recorded response, they can also tally their answers by matching the answers marked by them in their answer sheet and the answers given in answer key. If the answers marked by them matches the answers in the answer key then the answers are correct and candidate will be awarded 4 marks each.

If the answer marked by the candidate doesn’t match with the answers provided in the answer sheet, it means the candidate has marked an incorrect response. As a JEE Main result the answer is wrong and the answer will be negatively marked i.e. the ¼ of the marks allotted to that particular question will be deducted.

If a candidate didn’t attempt a question, that question will not be evaluated and the candidate will secure zero marks in that particular question.

Based on this marking scheme and the number of questions attempted correct and incorrect, candidate can calculate and get a rough estimate of the total marks they will be securing in the JEE Mains. Based on the calculated marks and previous year JEE Main cut-offs, candidates can assess if they will be placed in the rank list of students who will be appearing for JEE Advanced.
