Candidates wanting to get admissions in JIPMER Institutes will have to take up JIPMER exam and score required minimum percentile which is nothing but JIPMER Cutoff in order to gain eligibility to counselling process and admission.
Cutoff serves as the basis to determine the eligibility of the candidates who wants to gain admission at the JIPMER institute. Please note that cutoff is also called the minimum qualifying marks/minimum percentile. It varies category to category. Therefore, candidates are advised to look carefully and ensure that they are qualified enough to attend the JIPMER counselling. Refer below for normalization, percentile score calculation and tie breaking procedure.
JIPMER 2019 Category based Merit List
Minimum percentile differs for different categories. Refer the below table for details
|Unreserved (UR)/ OCI/ NRI||50|
|Unreserved - OPH||45|
|SC/ ST/ OBC - OPH||40|
JIPMER 2019 Normalization
Normalization is a process for ensuring that students are neither advantaged nor disadvantaged by the difficulty of questions. First, the Percentile Score for each candidate (Shift Wise) will be calculated as detailed below:-
JIPMER 2019 Percentile Score Calculation
The Percentile Score of a Candidate will be calculated by using the formula
No.of Candidates from the group with an aggregate mark less than a candidate/ No. of Candidates in the Particular Shift X 100
If 3888 Candidates appeared in the Morning Shift and a Candidate who has scored 60% marks and has 2500 Candidates below him; his Percentile score will be calculated as follows:Percentile Score of 60% Marks in the Entrance Examination = 2500 / 3888 X 100 Percentile score = 64.3004120
By this way, the percentile score (up to 7 decimal places) will be calculated separately for each of the five subjects (Biology, Physics, Chemistry, English Language and Comprehension & Logical and Aptitude Reasoning) and the Total.
The Percentile of the Total shall not be an aggregate or average of the Percentile of individual subjects.
Tie Break Resolving
In case two or more candidates share the same total percentile the order of deciding higher rank/ merit would be in the following order:
- Less Negative Marks
- Higher Percentile in Biology
- Higher Percentile in Chemistry
- Higher Percentile in Physics
- Higher Percentile in English Language and Comprehension
- Higher Percentile in Logical and Quantitative Reasoning
- Elder by Age
