Nagpur News: With HSC State Board results out and Joint Entrance Test (JEE) declared a few days ago, students are surrounded with uncertainties regarding their admissions in engineering colleges. When Nagpur Today scribe spoke to the students, a different scenario came to light. Many students are fearing that with large number of CBSE students achieving more than 90 per cent marks, their chances to get admitted in good colleges are minimal. Nagpur Today made an attempt to clear the cloud for the students. In JEE, 40 per cent Board marks and 60 per cent marks of JEE are included to select the students.

Here are the details on how the students will be selected for Engineering Colleges.
Going by the sources, a normalization formula has been introduced in JEE for fair and unbiased decision towards students.

The final list of JEE will be announced after 15 days of declaration all the results of state board and Central Board examinations. Here is the formula:
B Final: 0.5 * (B1 + B2)
