NTA score is not the same as the percentage of marks obtained. The percentiles or NTA scores are normalised across multisession papers and are based on the relative performance of all those who appeared for the examination in one session. The ranks of the candidates are released taking into consideration the best of the two NTA scores in accordance with the policy already in place. Paper 1 is for admission to BTech/ BE programmes in IITs, NITs and centrally-funded technical institutions (CFTIs).

The examination was conducted in 13 languages (Assamese, Bengali, English, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Odia, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, and Urdu) across 574 centres in 287 cities (including 17 cities outside India).
The NTA Score of about 50 candidates have been withheld as they are under scrutiny. The cases of these candidates are being placed before a Committee separately. Their NTA Scores will be declared once the Committee finalizes its report. As first reported by the TOI, the attendance was 95.80% for Paper 1 (BE / BTech), the highest recorded for the exam and for the first time the female registration surpassed the 30% mark (Paper 1 and Paper 2 combined).
