JEE Main 2022 Candidate alleges his score was changed from 99 4 percentile to 77 percentile gcw
New Delhi, First Published Aug 11, 2022, 2:20 PM IST

A JEE Main candidate claimed that his score --- 99.23 percentile in the first attempt and 99.47 percentile in the second attempt--- has been modified to 77 percentile. The student alleged that when his score changed and a new scorecard was produced, which reflected his score as 77 percentile, he was denied the opportunity to enrol for the IIT entrance test, JEE advanced.

The student had a 99.4 percentile score when he viewed his results on August 8, but when he applied for Advanced on August 10, the marksheet showed a different outcome. Apart from the grades, both mark sheets have the same student's name, picture, and other information. He is not qualified to qualify for JEE Advanced with the amended score since only the top 2.5 lakh rank holders are permitted to do so.
