Six candidates have scored a perfect '100' in the JEE Mains exams, PTI quoted NTA officials as saying.
The perfect scorers are Pravar Kataria and Ranjim Prabal Das from Delhi, Guramrit Singh from Chandigarh, Saket Jha from Rajasthan, Sidhanth Mukherjee from Maharashtra and Ananth Krishna Kidambi from Gujarat.
Officials said that NTA scores are normalised scores across multi-session papers and are based on the relative performance of all those who appeared for the examination in one session.
"The marks obtained are converted into a scale ranging from 100 to 0 for each session of examinees. NTA score is not the same as the percentage of marks obtained," the report quoted officials as saying.
