A merit list of all the eligible candidates would be drawn on the basis of total SAT Subject Test scores only. Only those candidates whose valid SAT Subject Test scores have been received by NITK, Surathkal, on or before May 28, 2014 (tentative) directly from College Board, will be considered for merit list preparation and seat allotment. If the SAT Subject Test scores (total) of two or more candidates are same, the inter se merit of such candidate shall be determined as follows
By marks obtained in SAT Subject Test Maths Level 2 and then Physics and then by percentile obtained in Maths level 2, Physics and Chemistry in that order. In case the tie is not broken by the above consideration then the date of birth of the candidates will be compared and older candidate will be given higher merit.
