On the basis of obtained composite score, candidates will be arranged in the list. The order of arrangement will be decreasing i.e. highest scorer will get the top place in the list whereas the candidate with lowest composite score will be put at the bottom. This list is called JEE Main 2016 Rank List in which ranks will be assigned to the candidates as per their composite score.
