Tie-Breaking: The tie-breaking criterion for awarding the ranks to candidates scoring the same aggregate marks in a test paper will be as follows: The candidate with a higher ratio of positive marks to negative marks will be given a higher rank. If this criterion fails to break ties, the candidates concerned will be awarded the same rank.

The number of candidates included in the All India Merit List will depend on the total number of seats available in each category in a given subject.

The category-wise lists (OBC-NCL, SC, ST, and PwD) of qualified candidates in a JAM test paper will be prepared based on the category declared by the candidates in their application forms.
