New Delhi: Twenty candidates have scored perfect 100 in engineering entrance exam JEE-Main’s January edition, the National Testing Agency (NTA) announced on Tuesday.
A total of 20 candidates received 100 NTA scores in Session 1 in Paper I (B.E/B.Tech). All the top 20 candidates are male candidates and no female candidate has secured the 100 percentile this session.
This time, a total of 8.6 lakh candidates took paper 1 and 0.46 lakh candidates took paper 2 exam. The overall attendance for the Engineering paper is 95.79 per cent, highest since NTA started conducting the entrance test.
“The NTA scores of 50 candidates have been withheld as they are under scrutiny,” a senior NTA official said.
NTA score is not the same as percentage of marks obtained but normalised scores.
Candidates can now check their scores on jeemain.nta.nic.in. Login credentials required for JEE Main session 1 result are application number and date of birth.
