Calculation of Merit
By adding the marks as follows:
Weightage of FSc or equivalent marks – 70%
Weightage of Entrance Test marks – 30%
The merit of candidates shall now be determined by using the
aforementioned weightage criteria.
Formula for Calculation of Aggregate Marks:
A x 0.70 + B x 0.30 = C
A = F. Sc. or Equivalent Marks
B = Entrance Test Marks
C = Aggregate Marks
Unadjusted marked of a candidate in FSc / Equivalent examination= 944/1100
70% of these unadjusted marks = 944 x 70 / 100 = 660.8
Entrance Test marks of the candidate = 925/1100
30% of Entrance Test marks = 925 x 30 / 100 = 277.5
Aggregate marks for calculating merit = 660.8 + 277.5 = 938.3/1100
Aggregate Percentage = 85.3000
