MINIMUM CUT-OFF SCORES
In accordance with decision of the Governing Body, AIIMS dated 14 September 2013, the minimum cut-off necessary in the Entrance Examination to determine eligibility for admission is 50th Percentile.

PERCENTILE SCORES
Percentile scores are scores based on the relative performance of all those who appear for the examination
Basically the marks obtained are transformed into a scale ranging from 100 to 0 for each group of examinees
The Percentile Score indicates the percentage of candidates that have scored EQUAL TO OR BELOW that particular Percentile in that examination.
The highest score is converted to a Percentile score of 100.
The marks obtained in between the highest and lowest scores are also converted to appropriate Percentiles
The Percentile Scores would be converted to 3 decimal places to avoid bunching effect and therefore reduce ties

The following is a further explanation of the interpretation of the scores in an examination with 100 candidates.

  • If candidate A’s Percentile score is 100, it indicates that amongst those who have taken the examination, 100% have scored either EQUAL TO OR LESS THAN the candidate A. It also indicates that no candidate has scored more that candidate A.
  • If candidate B’s Percentile score is 90, it indicates that 90% of the candidates who have taken the examination have scored either EQUAL TO OR LESS than candidate B. It also indicates that remaining candidates have scored more than candidate B.
  • If candidate C’s Percentile score is 50, it indicates that 50% of the candidates who have taken the examination have scored either EQUAL TO OR LESS than candidate C. It also indicates that remaining half of those who took the examination have scored more than candidate C.
  • If candidate D’s Percentile score is 30, it indicates that 30% of the candidates who have taken the examination have scored either EQUAL TO OR LESS than candidate D. It also indicates that remaining have scored more than candidate D.
  • If candidate E’s Percentile score is 1, it indicates that none of the candidates who have taken the examination have scored either EQUAL TO OR LESS than candidate E. It also indicates that all remaining candidates who took the examination have scored more than candidate.

METHOD OF RESOLVING TIES

The overall merit / ranking shall be based on the Percentile scores.
The method adopted for breaking ties (similar Percentiles) shall be:
(i) Candidates obtaining higher aggregate marks in all the MBBS/BDS Professional Examinations shall be placed higher than candidates with lower aggregate marks in MBBS/BDS Professional Examinations.
(ii) In case there is still a tie, after step (i) above, according to age (Date of birth), the older candidate shall get preference over the younger one.

PREPARATION OF MERIT LIST

Merit list shall be prepared based on the Percentile Scores and applying the above method for resolving ties

Overall and Category-wise merit Lists shall be prepared accordingly.
