Important Instructions on Computer-based Test (CBT)
- Candidates can make themselves familiar with the CBT exam through a sample/mock test available on the official website.
- Only one answer will be correct in the MCQ questions. Every question will have 4 options to choose the correct answer from.
- All the questions will carry equal weightage.
- Candidates will be provided a rough sheet in the examination. Hence, they don’t need to bring any paper/sheet for the same purpose.
- Candidates must arrive at the exam centre with the hall ticket, a valid ID proof and one photograph. The same might be checked by the invigilator during the examination.
- Entry to the exam hall will be denied to the candidate who doesn’t possess the above mentioned documents.
- Any kind of electronic items/equipments like calculator, pager, mobile phones, smart watches as well as the study material will not be permitted in the exam hall.
Minimum Qualifying Marks
- 75% of EAMCET normalized marks and 25% of Intermediate Marks in group subjects will be given weightage to prepare the rank.
- There will be no minimum marks criteria for candidates belonging to the SC/ST communities.
- The admission of the candidates belong to the reserved category will be limited to the seats reserved for them.
- In case the reserved category candidates got marks in all three subjects as zero after normalization, then the rank will be given based on 25% marks in 10+2.
What is Normalization?
Normalization is a process that ensures that candidates neither get an advantage nor disadvantage because of the difficulty of questions asked in the examinations conducted in multiple sessions. In the normalization process, the marks of the easier session may be reduced marginally and the marks of the harder paper may increase marginally on the global level, depending on the average performance in each session.
Normalized Marks of the candidate
= GM S + (Top average global- GMS)/ (Top average session-SMS) X (Marks obtained by a candidate- SMS)
SMS :( Average + Standard Deviation) of the session in which the candidate belongs to
GMS: (Average + Standard Deviation) of all the candidates across all sessions together
Top Average Session: Average marks of the top 0.1% of the candidates in the session in which the candidate belongs to.
Top Average Global: Average marks of the top 0.1% of all the candidates across all sessions together.
