- Written Test Score

The Institute, basis of the percentile provided by the student, will assign a score out of 140 using a statistical normalization process. In case, the student has given multiple test percentile, the highest will be considered.
Students should note that percentile and percentage are not the same.

- Past academic record

The marks assigned for past academic record include marks for percentage obtained in Class 10, Class 12, Graduation and Post Graduation (if applicable). In case a student is appearing for Graduation or Post Graduation, the percentage column will be blank. Students must not enter an aggregate of previous years

Documents to be enclosed along with completed application for academic results are:

a. Attested copy of Marksheet of Class 10, 12, Graduation, Post Graduation (whichever applicable)

b. Attested copy of Graduation and Post Graduation Certificate

Applications not having the above documents will not be given marks for Past Academic Record. Maximum Marks in this section is 15.

b. Experience letter or a combination of Appointment and Relieving letter for all previous jobs mentioned.

The maximum marks in this parameter is 15. In the absence of the above documents marks will not be given for the work experience claimed by the student.

ANY false claim / fake documents being submitted will be automatically disqualified from the Selection Process and no appeal will be entertained in this regard.

The total score of 170 in Stage I will then be used to shortlist students for Stage II of the Selection process. Therefore ALL applicants will not be called for Stage II. Students should note that being called for Stage II is dependant on 3 parameters as mentioned above and not only on the Written Test Score. Hence a specific percentile cut-off for being invited to Stage II does not apply.
