Tie-Breaking Criteria

If two or more candidates obtain equal percentile scores, then inter-se merit for selection shall be determined on the following basis:

  • A candidate who has obtained higher aggregate marks in MBBS examination shall rank higher to a candidate who has obtained lower marks.
  • If the aggregate marks obtained in MBBS examination are the same, then a candidate senior in age shall rank higher to a candidate who is junior in age.

An overall merit list based on the percentile obtained by all the candidates appearing in the examination in the theory examination (irrespective of their category) will be prepared.

 

*Percentile scores in PGI MD/MS examination are calculated by using the following formula:

Percentile = [(B+ (0.5*E)/N *100

Where

B = Number of scores below the candidate’s score

E= number of scores equal to the candidate’s score

(1 if there is no tie, and >1 if there is a tie)

N = number of candidates appearing for the exam

Overall rank of the candidates shall be decided based on these percentile scores, with a higher percentile score translating into a better rank.
