|Rank List II: For allotment to B.Sc. Perfusion Technology, B.C.V.T, B.P.T, B.Sc.Medical Radiological Technology course, B.Sc.

|Note: In case a candidate has studied more than one subject among Mathematics/Biology, the subject for which the candidate has scored the maximum marks among them will be considered as the third optional subject.
Procedure for Normalisation:- The marks scored by the candidates in each subject in the Qualifying Examination conducted by various Boards will be made comparable with the marks obtained by the students in the same subjects in the qualifying examination conducted by the Directorate of Higher Secondary Examination, Kerala.
|Example:-Let ‘X’ be the maximum mark secured out of 100 for a subject in the state Higher Secondary Board and ‘Y’ the maximum mark secured out of 100 for the same subject in any other stream AISSCE/ISC/VHSE. If ‘T’ is the mark secured out of 100 for the subject by a student of the other board (CBSE/ICSE/VHSE) in that year, then his /her normalized mark for the subject, say ‘Z’ equals (T*X)/Y (the value to be corrected to four decimal places.)
Illustration Subject :
Chemistry Year: 2012
Max. mark out of 100 secured in the state board = 100,
Max. mark out of 100 secured in the ISC = 99
The normalized mark of an ISC student who secured 85 out of 100 in Chemistry will be equal to (85*100)/99 = 85.8586
Resolving of the tie while ranking:
(1) For Rank List I and Rank List II: In case of a tie in the total marks computed for ranking, candidates with higher marks obtained in Biology will be placed higher in the ranking. If the tie still exists, the candidate with higher marks obtained in Chemistry will be placed higher in the ranking. If the tie still exists, the candidate with higher marks obtained in Physics will be placed higher in the ranking. If the tie still exists, the percentage of total marks for the qualifying examination and then the percentage of marks in English in the qualifying examination will be considered for breaking the tie. Even after this, if tie remains, the age of the candidate will be taken into account and the older will be placed higher in ranking than the younger. If the tie still persists, the alphabetical order of the names of the candidates in English will be taken into account (Eg. ‘A’ has a higher priority than ‘E’ and so on).
(2) For Rank List III: In case of a tie in the total marks computed for ranking, the candidate with higher marks obtained in Chemistry will be placed higher in the ranking. If the tie still exists, the candidate with higher marks obtained in Physics will be placed higher in the ranking. If the tie persists further, the percentage of total marks for the qualifying examination and then the percentage of marks in English in the qualifying examination will be considered for breaking the tie. If the tie still remains, the age of the candidate will be taken into account and the older will be placed higher in the ,ranking than the younger.
