What is ‘G55’?

After the declaration of the results, the candidates may not get ranks assigned mainly for the following reasons :

  • For want of Q. E. marks, a candidate might have missed the rank.
  • A candidate might have marked the version code wrongly.
  • Q. E. marks may change due to revaluation or otherwise, when corrected, a fresh ranking becomes necessary.
  • The KEA computers are programmed to assign new ranks or fresh ranks to the candidates falling within the above said categories without disturbing the rank numbers assigned to the candidates whose results were declared earlier.
  • The computer program is such that it can assign ranks in between two integers without altering the previous rank numbers.
For example.

When a rank was assigned to you, rank 1234 and 1235 had been assigned to two other candidates. When it came to assigning a rank to you, the computer found that in the normal course, your rank would have been after the candidate with rank 1234 and before the candidate with rank 1235. Therefore, the computer had to place you between 1234 and 1235.

The computer is programmed to generate large number of ranks between two integers by dividing the space alphabetically from A to Z.

Then each alphabet is subdivided from 1 to 99.

Now, if a new rank is required to be assigned between two integer ranks, in the first instance, the computer assigns a division number as ‘G 55’ before the previous rank.

If one more rank needs to be assigned between the rank 1234 and 1234 G 55, the computer assigns a rank as 1234 G 44

If one more rank is to be assigned between 1234 G 55 and 1235, then it assigns a rank as 1234 G 66.
