The National Testing Agency or NTA has released the JEE Main result 2019 today on the official exams. The JEE Main exam, which is being conducted as an eligibility test for admission in various graduate engineering and technological courses in country as well as the qualifying test for JEE Advanced, will be back in next April. The application process for JEE Main April exams will begin next month. The JEE Main results and scores for January exam can be accessed from the official website, jeemain.nic.in.
The NTA will be conducting the JEE Main 2019 tests twice in order to give the students adequate opportunity to bring out their best as well as to remove the possibility of human error in evaluation. As per Navin C Joshi, Academic head and VP (JEE and NEET) at Gradeup, "Candidates should not worry and should focus on April exam. Following example will help students in the interpretation of percentile: Lets say a student's percentile is 99, this means that 1% students have scored more marks. In this exam session if 1,16,000 students appeared, this means that the rank in that session is approximately 1160 and overall rank is about 1160 multiplied by 8 (considering there were total 8 slots of the exam). This calculation will give an approximate idea about AIR (All India Rank) and not the correct rank. If a student is seeking admission in an NIT, then the percentile must be greater than 96. However, the final result will be evaluated after April session."

However, sitting in both the tests will not be compulsory for the candidates. The two tests will be equated using psychometric methods, standardisation techniques and best of the equated scores will be used for the admissions, the HRD ministry said in a statement earlier.

The candidates might use their JEE Main results and scores for registering in the JEE Advanced test, which is being held as an eligibility test for graduate level admission in IITs.
To attract foreign students in IITs, the HRD ministry had announced recently that the Joint Entrance Examination or JEE Advanced exams will be conducted in six examination centres abroad at Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), Kathmandu (Nepal), Singapore, Dubai (United Arab Emirates), Dhaka (Bangladesh), and Colombo (Sri Lanka).
The Ministry also said Supernumerary seats with a cap of 10% of total number of seats in each course are available to foreign students, who are allowed to appear in JEE (Advanced) directly without appearing in the JEE (Main).
