MT CET (Pharmacy) 2014 Rounding off of percentage of marks for deciding eligibility for admission
In case percentage of marks in the subjects Physics, Chemistry and Biology /Mathematics added together at HSC (std.XII) comes in fraction then percentage of marks shall be rounded off as explained in the example for the purpose of deciding the eligibility of the candidate. Example:- If the percentage of marks comes out to be 39.50% to 39.99% then it shall be rounded to 40% and if the percentage of marks comes out to be 39.01% to 39.49% shall be rounded to 39%.
1. In case the maximum marks in individual subject is other than 100, convert the marks out of 100 for individual subject but do not round off these marks. If the sum of the converted marks of three individual subjects without rounding off works out to be a figure with fraction then fraction up to two decimal places shall only be considered and the percentage of marks shall be calculated considering maximum marks as 300 and, If the percentage comes in fraction rounding off shall be done as given in Rule No. 2.7 to decide the eligibility.
Example: If a candidate obtains 85 marks out of 200 in Physics, 76 marks out of 150 in Chemistry and 40 Marks out of 100 in Mathematics, then the sum of marks obtained works out to be 201 out of 450 marks. If it is converted out of 300, it works out to be 133.999. The % of marks comes out 44.66 %. However if the marks in individual subjects are converted out of 100, then the marks are as 42.5 in Physics, 50.6666 in Chemistry and 40 in Mathematics. It means the sum of converted marks of individual subject is 133.1666, which is 133.16 up to two fractions. The % of marks comes out 44.38 % after rounding off it is 44%. Hence the candidate is not eligible for admission under OPEN Category.
2. If letter grades are assigned instead of marks at SSC, HSC or its equivalent examination the candidate must obtain the certificate of conversion of letter of grades into marks from the competent authority where from the candidate has passed the examination. The candidate should produce such certificate at the time of submission of application form. The Eligibility shall be decided based on the equivalent marks submitted by such candidates.
3. If the candidate reappears for the qualifying examination (Std. XII or its equivalent) with all subjects then the marks obtained in the latest examination will only be considered for determining the eligibility criterion.
