Latest Changes in the JEE Main 2022 Tier Breaking Policy
The National Testing Agency (NTA) has brought back the age factor as one of the criteria for breaking ties in JEE Main 2022. The NTA was following this till 2020 but, it removed the age criterion from the tie-breaking policy last year. The NTA has made another revision in the tie-breaking policy of JEE Main which is application numbers in ascending order.
This means if two candidates secure the same marks or percentile in the entrance examinations and their ties cannot be resolved using other methods, the one who applied for the exam early will be given priority in the merit list. The agency will be using the age limit and application numbers as criteria two for determining the ranks.
