HYDERABAD: After the announcement of EAMCET marks students are curious to evaluate their score after considering the 25 per cent weightage given to Intermediate marks.
Though some students have appeared for the advanced supplementary examination other students know both the EAMCET and Intermediate marks and they can calculate the marks that will decide the EAMCET rank.
According to the system devised for the weightage issue, marks secured in three subjects in EAMCET will be calculated for 75 per cent and they will be added to the 25 per cent equivalent of the marks scored in the core subjects: Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry in case of MPC students and Physics, Chemistry, Zoology and Botany in case of BiPC students.
For example, if a student scores 140 marks out of 160 (total marks) in EAMCET, his marks will be arrived at dividing 140 with 160 and then multiplying the result with 75 (allotted weightage) to get the marks.
Here it will come to 65.625 marks.
Similar calculation will be used to get the 25 per cent weightage of Intermediate marks. But marks obtained in optional subjects only will be considered for calculating the weightage.
In case of tie
Both the marks will be added to get the final figure and then ranks will be allotted based on that figure in the descending order.
Similar procedure will be adopted for students who studied in CBSE and ICSE mode.
In case of a tie, the comparison for a better rank will be arrived at by first considering the total marks in EAMCET and if they are also equal, marks scored in mathematics or biology will be the next consideration.
If there is a tie again, marks scored in physics in EAMCET will come into picture, and even if they are equal the total marks obtained in the Intermediate examination will be considered.
If still a tie, date of birth of the candidate will be considered and the older one will get the preference. Effectively, everyone will be given a separate rank with this method. Another important component of the process is the inclusion of practical examination marks. As per the G.O. 61 practical examination marks will have to be counted.
Marks obtained in the advanced supplementary examinations of Intermediate will also be considered.
So the final rank will be given using the marks obtained in the advanced supplementary examinations.
Though marks will be taken into account for calculating the rank, the final admission will be given based on ranks alone.
Ranks are likely to be declared in June last week.
