  • A candidate who would have obtained a higher aggregate in their MBBS qualifying examination will be placed higher in the order of merit compared to others.

  • If MBBS aggregate marks are also the same, then the tie between candidates will be resolved by considering age factor. The candidate who would be older in age will be placed higher in the order of merit.  

Score Calculation Method of PGIMER 2018


The PGIMER 2018 question paper will comprise 250 questions. Each question will have five responses out of which the candidates will have to choose the correct one/s. This means that there will be a total of 1250 response options, with one or more options being correct in a single question. Therefore, the total of correct responses in the paper (say a) and the total of incorrect responses (b) will tally to 1250 (as in a + b = 1250). Final scoring will be done through a customized software which will match the candidates’ correct responses or those left blank to each of the 1250 possible responses which are correct. Some of these questions are truly correct (say x) while the remaining are wrongly marked as incorrect (say y). The scoring is done through customized software that matches the candidates’ responses to each of the 1250 possible responses (marked as correct or left blank) with the true answer (correct or incorrect). True correct responses, which are when candidates correctly mark a response as true, are scored positively, and incorrect responses, which are when candidates mark an incorrect response as correct, are scored negatively. Responses not marked by the candidates are not scored. The percentage score of the candidate is computed using the formula: Percentage score = [x/a–y/b] ×100.


As an example, one can assume that the question paper will have 600 correct responses. If a candidate marks 580 responses as correct, out of which 450 are truly correct and the remaining 130 are incorrect, then a = 600, b = 650, x = 450 and y = 130. Accordingly, for this candidate, percentage score is: [(450/600) – (130/650)] × 100 = 55.0.


PGIMER is a national level examination offering admissions to 196 seats across 20 Master of Surgery (MS) and Doctor of Medicine (MD) programmes. PGIMER 2018 exam for July 2018 session will be conducted on May 13, 2018. Candidates will be able to check the PGIMER Cut Off and Result within 24 hours of the exam being conducted, i.e. on May 14, 2018.
