Calculation of Best Four %

  • The merit shall be determined on the basis of one language and three best academic/elective subjects from.
  • Out of three, academic/elective subject chosen above, one must be the concerned subject in which the admission is sought, failing which a deduction of 2.5% will be imposed on the calculated Best Four %.
  • Note:
    • no If an applicant doesn‘t include the concerned subjects in Best Four, then a deduction of 2.5% of max marks will be charged for each subject for the purpose of calculating Best Four.
    •  All subjects to be included in the calculation of Best Four must have at least 70% theory component of exam.
    • As In case of State Boards: if the subject to be considered does not have 70% theory component and 30% practical component, then the marks of theory and practical only shall be converted to 70% and 30%, respectively as shown below:
  • Examples  :
    • 1)-  If you scored :
      • Physics 90 (theory 50/60, practical 40/40), and Chemistry 91(theory 52/60, practical 39/40); which is not in ratio of 70: 30, then the marks can be converted as;
      • New marks in Physics = 88.33; ((50/60) x 70 + (40/40) x 30) = 58.33 + 30 = 88.33
      • New marks in chemistry = 89.92; ((52/60) x 70 + (39/40) x 30) = 60.66 + 29.25 = 89.91
    • 2)-  If you scored:
      • Physics 88 (theory 45/56, IA 14/14, practical 29/30) and, Chemistry 92 (theory 48/56, IA 14/14, practical 30/30), English (90) and Biology 95 (theory 51/56, IA 14/14, practical 30/30), Mathematics 92. The marks in Physics, Chemistry and Biology have less than 70% theory component and therefore have to be converted to 70:30 ratio as done above in eg.1
      • For Physics, ((45/56) x 70 + (43/44) x 30) = 56.25+29.3 = 85.55
      • For Chemistry, ((48/56) x 70 + (44/44) x 30 = 60 + 30 = 90
      • For Biology, ((51/56) x 70 + (44/44) x 30 = 63.75 + 30 = 93.75
