NEET, JEE Main 2021: NTA Drops Age as Tie-Breaking Factor, How will Rank List be Calculated Now

If two candidates score a similar score in JEE or NEET - national level exams held for engineering and medical entrances, respectively - the age of the candidates will no longer be a factor to break the tie. The National Testing Agency (NTA) has removed the provision of giving priority to older candidates in rank lists of the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2021 for engineering and the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2021 for medical admissions.
