National Testing Agency (NTA) has issued a notification on the controversy that started after the release of JEE Main 2024 Session-1 (January) result. In this, along with the shift wise number of students, the calculation of students on every percentile score in each shift has also been released. This is being seen as an explanation. Here, the application process for JEE-Main session-2 April is going on and till now more than 90 thousand new unique students have applied. The last date of application is till 2 March. The BE-B.Tech examination was held in 10 shifts between January 27 and February 1. The result came on 12 February. Since then there was confusion regarding NTA score. Answers to many questions could not be found.

The main reason for this was the variation in the NTA scores released on the raw scores of students in each shift. After this, the parents protested and demanded a clarification from NTA. According to the data released by NTA, the examination shifts were allotted equally to the students in 10 shifts held between January 27 and February 1, in which the maximum of 1 lakh 25 thousand students and minimum 1 lakh 16 thousand students were included in one shift. The number of boys in each shift was around 82 thousand and the number of girl students was around 40 thousand. The data released also included the number of students at the 1st percentile in each shift.

Clarified the method of making question paper
In the clarification, NTA clarified the method of question paper to be set for JEE-Main. It was told that NTA keeps the nature of the paper the same. Randomly distributed among shifts. It was also made clear that there is no equality between raw score and percentile score. Experts are consulted to decide the process of normalization, these experts include professors from ISI Kolkata, IISc Bangalore and IITs.

The number of students remained the same in the figures
