The minimum qualifying percentage is 30% and the minimum qualifying marks are 36 marks

There is no minimum qualifying marks/percentage for this category



If two or more candidates score the same marks, the ranking will be in the following order:

  • Higher marks scored in Mathematics
  • Higher marks scored in Physics
  • Candidates who are older in age will be preferred
  • If the tie still remains, the percentage/marks scored by candidates in the qualifying exam will be considered to shortlist – higher the percentage, higher the ranking.
