PGIMER Cutoff 2019 – Determination of Inter-se Merit

The order of merit of candidates with equal scores in PGIMER 2019 entrance examination is determined using the following criteria.

  • Candidates with higher aggregate marks in the MBBS examination are given a higher order of merit.

  • In case, the tie is still unresolved then candidates older in age are preferred and placed in a higher order of merit.

PGIMER 2019 Cutoff – Score Calculation Method

The scores of candidates attempting PGIMER 2019 are determined using a special method developed by PGIMER Chandigarh. There will be a total of 250 question in the question paper of PGIMER 2019. Each question will comprise five responses out of which one or more response(s) will be the correct answer for each question. So, there are 1250 responses in total out which say, ‘a’ is the number of correct responses and ‘b’ is the number of incorrect responses and thus, a+b = 1250. Candidates will be awarded positive marks for each correct answer, which is when candidates correctly mark a response as true, and marks will be deducted for each incorrect answer, which is when candidates mark an incorrect response as correct. For questions left answered no marks will be awarded or deducted. A customized software will be used to score the candidates’ responses and match the correct/unmarked responses out of 1250 with the true answer (correct or incorrect). Now, assuming ‘x’ is the number of truly correct answers and ‘y’ is the number of answers wrongly marked by the candidate, the percentage score of the candidate is calculated by using the formula given below.


Percentage Score of a candidate= [x/a–y/b]*100

For example, let us assume that the question paper has 600 correct responses and candidate marks 580 responses as correct of which only 450 are truly correct while the remaining 130 are incorrect.  So in this case, a = 600, b = 650, x = 450 and y = 130 and the percentage score of the candidate is

[(450/600) – (130/650)]*100 = 55%.
