PGIMER Cutoff 2019

PGIMER Cutoff 2019 – Candidates seeking admission into PG medical courses at PGIMER Chandigarh have to meet the   PGIMER 2019 cutoff requirement. PGIMER cutoff 2019 will be determined category-wise and represents the lowest rank or score for which admission is offered in that specific category. So, any candidate who doesn't meet the cutoff percentile will not be considered for admission. The category-wise PGIMER  2019 cutoff will be prepared based on parameters like number of candidates appearing in the exam, applications received for admission, and also total intake capacity. If any of the these parameters change, the cutoff would also change. Admission authority will publish the cutoff of PGIMER 2019 online. Please note that the qualifying cutoff is not the same as the admission cutoff. It is because even if a candidate qualifies in PGIMER, he or she may not be considered for admission if they don't meet the admission cutoff. 

PGIMER entrance test is conducted twice a year - once in January and then in July - for admission to MS/MD courses. Depending on which session the candidate is appearing in, the candidate has to meet the corresponding PGIMER 2019 cutoff. This means, if the candidate is appearing in July session, they have to refer the PGIMER 2019 cutoff for July session only. Go through the rest of the article to learn the full details of PGIMER cutoff 2019.  

PGIMER 2019 Cutoff

The table below represents the qualifying cutoff of PGIMER 2019 for the different categories. Please note only such candidates who qualify in the PGIMER 2019 exam will be eligible to participate in the counselling and seat allotment process. That being said, qualifying in the exam is no guarantee of admission.

In fact, qualified candidates would have to participate in PGIMER 2019 counselling and seat allotment process. During counselling, candidates will be able to pick choices based on their merit rank. But if seats run out, even qualified candidates may not get admission.

Factors that determine PGIMER Cutoff 2019

  • The number of candidates appearing in the PGIMER 2019
  • Total number of sanctioned seats
  • Applications received for admission
  • Category of the candidate

If any of these parameters change, the PGIMER 2019 cutoff would also change. For example, if the number of MBBS seats is raised, PGIPMER cutoff 2019 would likely come down. But if instead, the number of seats is reduced, competition would increase pushing the cutoff higher.

Procedure to determine Inter-se Merit

If two or more candidates score the same marks in PGIMER 2019 entrance examination, the merit rank of candidates will be determined in the following sequence.

  • Candidates who has a higher aggregate of mark in PGIMER 2019 exam will be given a higher rank.

  • If the tie is unresolved, then it will be determined based on age, with the candidate who is older in age to be ranked higher.

Method to Calculate Score

Admission authority of PGIMER will use a unique technique for calculating scores. The question paper of PGIMER 2019 would include 250 question, each with five answer options. Of these five options, there can be one or more correct response(s). 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. Positive marks will be awarded for a every correct answer; likewise for selecting a wrong option, marks will be deducted. For questions left answered, zero marks will be awarded. The choices opted by the candidate will be processed by a customized software and score will be calculated. 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

To give an illustration, let us assume that the question paper has 600 correct responses but the candidate has marked 580 responses correctly 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%.

The result of PGIMER 2019 (July session) will be declared tentatively on May 13, 2019 in online mode. Earlier, exam conducting had declared the result for January session on November 26, 2018. Candidates would be able to check their results, the candidate has to simply click on the result link (no log-in is required).
