Tie-breaking Policy
If two or more candidates are getting the same aggregate marks than in this case the tie-breaking policy will be applicable. Candidates having higher marks will be given a higher rank. If this criteria fails then the subject-wise evaluation will be done in the following way:

  • Higher Rank will be given to the candidate who obtains higher marks in Mathematics. If this criteria fails to break the tie then the higher rank will be given to the candidate who obtains the higher marks in Physics.
  • If still there will be a tie the candidates will be given the same rank.

Improvement of Scores:
If any Candidate who had appeared in Class XII (or equivalent) examination for the first time in 2019 and wants to reappear in 2020 to improve his/her scores than the candidate can reappear in all the subjects.
