Here Are the Top 5 JEE Main Rank Predictors

JEE Main is the first engineering entrance exam of the season, and takes place in the first week of April. As soon as the exam ends, the hunt for the correct answers begins–and hardly within three to four hours the answer keys are released.

The next step that most students take is estimating their rank so they have a better idea of what their standing is. Aspirants try tallying their ranks from the various JEE Main rank predictors that are available. As you can imagine, there is a lot of competition among various sites for giving the best estimate. Here, we will discuss some of the best rank predictors so you can use this tool when the time comes.

Resonance JEE Main Rank Predictor

Resonance is a leading brand in coaching students for the toughest exam of the country, and has been quite successful. Resonance releases answer keys for the JEE Main exam on the same day as the exam. Soon afterwards it makes it’s JEE Main rank predictor functional. Here are a few points that make it stand apart from the other ones in the market.

  • Hassle-free rank predictor with an unlimited number of attempts available for checking ranks with different score estimates.
  • This rank predictor requires only a few essential details and doesn’t ask for extra, useless information.
  • The predicted rank is emailed to you and no further spam mails are sent.

One of the Best!

This is an ‘easy to access and use’ rank predictor. But coming to the most important part, how relevant is their JEE Main rank predictor?

The Resonance JEE Main rank predictor is one of the best in its category because of its relevance and adaptability. A number of rank predictors use algorithms dated two or three years back, which can lead to incorrect and absurd predictions. The Resonance rank predictor is better because it adapts to the new pattern of the paper and predicts accordingly.

Another interesting point is that until 2016 the rank prediction was tougher since normalization had to be taken into account. Even then the Resonance JEE Main predictor was very accurate.

These factors make me keep Resonance JEE Main rank predictor on the top of our list.

Shiksha JEE Main Rank Predictor

The JEE Main rank predictor by Shiksha predicts ranks in a more convenient way. Its predictions are similar to a few other rank predictors, but we put it in the second position in the list because of the following features:

  • Easiest to access when compared to all other rank predictors. It doesn’t even require you to put in your name! You simply need to fill in two blanks–and you get your rank estimation.
  • Along with your rank, it will show you a comprehensive list of colleges that you can get into. It even mentions the round of counseling in which you can possibly get that college.
  • Along with the rank and list of colleges, it gives you the freedom of unlimited trials and the ‘add to compare’ feature too with every college’s name.

The ranks predicted by the Shiksha JEE Main rank predictor are a little on the higher side as compared to the actual ranks. But it provides a good approximation, and can help a student be prepared for whatever rank they might get. You can use Resonance and Shiksha rank predictors both and accordingly gauge the worst and the best case scenarios for your JEE Mains rank.

Aakash JEE Main Rank Predictor

The Aakash JEE Main rank predictor is also a good rank predictor. It can make some near approximations which, if not fully accurate, still come a little closer to the actual ranks. Their rank predictor is pretty similar to Shiksha’s JEE Main rank predictor in terms of the rank approximations. The distinctive features of the Aakash JEE Main rank predictors are:

  • It’s a simple input-output rank predictor.
  • Predicts a few (less than Shiksha) colleges along with the rank prediction.
  • No spamming and the results are displayed on the same page easily. There is no need to check your email for the result.
  • Updated, and not based simply on past results.

The Aakash JEE Main rank predictor is not perfect and is a little strict when it comes to predicting ranks. The ranks predicted are higher than actual ranks so it can be said that it gives you the worst case scenario. Also, it is not made very popular even though its predictions are good, so a little more publicity would be good on their part. Thus, this is the third best option when it comes to easy access and approximate rank predictions for JEE Main.

Careers360 JEE Main Rank Predictor

The Careers360 JEE Main rank predictor tries to give proper approximations but needs improvements in certain aspects. And it can do much better predictions if it follows the ongoing trends. Here are some details regarding this program.

  • Counts are limited to 20.
  • This rank predictor requires you to put in a lot more details as compared to other predictors.
  • This rank predictor is a little slow, too.
  • The interface of their predictor is very interactive and shows that it’s worth the wait.

Ranks predicted by the Careers360 JEE Main rank predictor are close approximations to the predictors ranked number 2 and 3. However, the overall experience of using it (as stated above) makes us put it in the fourth spot.

FIITJEE JEE Main Rank Predictor

The JEE Main rank predictor is tried by aspirants widely and for some years has worked pretty well. But the quality of prediction by FIITJEE JEE Main rank predictor has been of a fluctuating nature. The overall user experience is comfortable, and it doesn’t trouble you with entering useless information before giving you your approximated rank.

Another thing is that FIITJEE’s predictor gives a very large range, so it probably accounts for the best and worst case scenarios both by itself. A more specific range helps but a larger range helps in the estimations of all cases and mentally prepares students.

However, due to its fluctuating performance and nature, I put it in the fifth spot. The predictions in certain years have been pretty close, but in some years (like 2016) the predictions didn’t work well and were lower than the actual ranks. They represented the very best case scenario. Unfortunately, this is not a great idea since it sets students up for disappointment when they learn their actual rank is not as good as predicted.


To sum it up, you can try all of these! Then take an average of all the lower ranges to get the best case estimate, and the average of all higher ones for the worst case estimate. Also don’t become too disappointed with any predictions. JEE Main is the first exam and a lot more have to be given after this–so maintain your confidence! The predictions are just approximations and much lies ahead. All the best!
