• All subjects to be included in the calculation of ‘Best Four’ must have at least 70% theory component of exam. In case, the subject to be considered does not have 70% theory component and 30% practical component, then the marks of theory and practical only shall be converted to 70% and 30%, respectively on pro rata basis. These new marks will then be considered for calculation of ‘Best Four’

• If a candidate has scored: Physics 90 (theory 50, practical 40; max. marks theory 60, practical 40), and Chemistry 91(theory 52, practical 39; max. marks theory 60, practical 40) which is not in ratio of 70: 30, then the marks can be converted on pro rata basis

Pro rata marks in physics = 88.3 ((50/60) x 70 + (40/40) x 30) = 58.33 + 30 = 88.33

Pro rata marks in chemistry = 89.92 ((52/60) x 70 + (39/40) x 30) = 60.67 + 29.25 = 89.92
