The Delhi High Court has rejected a petition challenging the normalization process used to determine the results of the engineering entrance exam JEE Main. A bench of Justice C Hari Shankar said, ‘JEE Main examination, which gives way to admission to IITs, NITs and other centrally funded technical institutions, can be the subject of court proceedings, which in itself is a serious issue. ‘

The court found that the petition filed by Setu Vineet Goneka did not satisfy the requirement. The court said “The fact is that the petitioner was aware of the entire selection process and marking policy during the examination. Despite this, the petitioner has sought to challenge the result process, in my opinion it is not right to hear this.

The court said that the petitioner appeared for the JEE Main examination on January 27 and as per the normalization process, the result of the examination in percentile was declared on February 12. It said that the petitioner’s challenge appears to be somewhat vague.”

JEE Main is a well-structured system in Administrative Law. A candidate, who was already aware of the manner in which the examination was conducted and the result declared, cannot challenge the manner in which it was conducted after the result is declared.

The court also said that normalization is a statistical process. Counsel appearing for the National Testing Agency (NTA) pointed out that the process and formula, which is adopted across the world, was adopted by the NTA on the basis of the recommendation of a high-powered committee in November 2018. This was also later reviewed in October 2020.

The court said that the result of every student seeking admission in IIT is calculated using this normalization formula.
