In case a situation of tie arises, where aspirants secure equal marks, candidate's merit for admission to BE /BTech (in institutions other than IITs) will be determined by:

1. Marks obtained in Mathematics in JEE (Main). Aspirant obtaining higher marks will be given better rank.
2. Marks obtained in Physics in the JEE (Main). Aspirant obtaining higher marks will be given better rank.
3. Ratio of positive marks and negative marks. Aspirant with higher absolute value of the ratio will be given better rank.
4. Despite the above three steps, a resolution is not possible, then candidates will be given the same rank.

In 2017, the Ministry of Human Resource Development notified:

1. There'll be no weightage for the 12th class marks in calculating the ranks in the JEE (Main) examination,

2. For the candidates to qualify for the admission in the IITs/NITs/IIITs and such other CFTIs whose admissions are based on the JEE (Advanced)/JEE(Main) ranks, they should have secured at least 75% marks in the 12th class examination, or be in the top 20 percentile in the 12th class examination conducted by the respective Boards. For SC/ST students the qualifying marks would be 65% in the 12th class examination.

The States of Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Uttrakhand, Nagaland, Odisha & some other institutions have joined JEE (Main) system, however, their admission criteria will be notified by the concerned authorities. Therefore, the candidates seeking admission to the institutions in these states, which were earlier admitting based on their State level examination, are also advised to fill in the JEE (Main)–2018  application form online.
