o MCAT test: 50 Percent
Formula for calculating merit is given below:
Obtained marks in SSC or Equivalent divided by Total marks of SSC or Equivalent x 1100 x 0.10 = 10 percent of SSC or Equivalent
Obtained Marks in HSSC or Equivalent divided by Total marks of HSSC/Equivalent x 1100 x 0.40 = 40 percent of HSSC or Equivalent
Obtained Marks in Entrance Test /SAT II/MCAT divided by Total marks of Entrance Test /SAT II/MCAT x 1100 x 0.50 = 50 percent of Admission Test
10 percent SSC or Equivalent + 40 percent HSSC or Equivalent +50 percent Admission Test = Aggregate Marks
