TS EAMCET 2019 Selection Process
Candidates, who have secured the qualifying marks in TS EAMCET 2019, will be assigned ranks in the order of merit based on the combined score they get by giving weightage in the ratio of 75% for Normalised marks secured and 25% to the marks secured in the appropriate group subjects like mathematics/biology, chemistry, and physics of the qualifying examination.
How does normalised mark arrive?
As the TS EAMCET test is conducted in different sessions, students taking the test each session will have a different set of question paper. Just because they should not feel that one set was tougher/easier than the other, JNTU follows an approach called Normalised mark.
The Normalised mark is arrived using the formula:
GASD + GTA – GASD/STA-SASD x Marks Obtained by the candidate in the subject of a session (SASD)
Here, SASD denotes Sum of Average (A) and Standard Deviation (SD) of the subject of a session in which the candidate appeared. Here, GASD stands for A and SD of all candidates across different sessions of the subject put together.
STA is the average mark of the top 0.1% of the candidates in the subject of a session, wherein the candidates appeared. GTA stands for the average mark of the top 0.1% of the candidates across all the sessions of the subject together.
