Factors that determine PGIMER Cutoff 2020
- The number of candidates appearing in the PGIMER 2020
- Total number of sanctioned seats
- Applications received for admission
- Category of the candidate
If any of these parameters change, the PGIMER 2020 cutoff will also change. For example, if the number of MBBS seats is raised, PGIPMER cutoff 2020 is 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 equal scores in PG entrance examination, then, the merit rank of candidates will be determined in the following sequence.
Candidates who has a higher aggregate of mark in PGIMER 2020 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 2020 would include 250 multiple choice questions 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%.
PGIMER result declares a few days after the conduction of exam. The authority will be releasing PGIMER result 2020 in online mode in the form of merit list. Candidates securing the minimum qualifying percentile will be included in the result. If the result will be available in PDF format, then candidates will have to search their name and roll number to check their individual results. Apart from roll number, PGIMER 2020 result will contain details like percentile, category and overall rank.
