Candidates will be admitted based on their normalized aggregate +2 marks. To bring all candidates from different examining authorities/ boards in the same scale of comparison and to create a list in the order of merit, the +2 or its equivalent aggregate marks will be normalized. A first rank student of each board is considered to have obtained 100% mark and aggregate mark of all other students of the board is normalized with reference to that of the first rank student. For example, if the topper of the Board has score 490 / 500 and an applicant’s aggregate from the same Board is 450 then the applicant’s normalized percentage will be 91.84 (450 / 490 x 100). A merit list is drawn based on the normalized percentage for making admissions.
