Points to remember
A Candidate securing zero or negative marks either in Mathematics or in Total Marks in NIMCET 2021 test will be disqualified.
The marks obtained in Mathematics, Analytical Ability & Logical Reasoning, Computer Awareness, English will be multiplied by a factor of 3, 1.5, 2 and 1 respectively.
Thus, maximum weighted marks will be 1000.
Ranking will be based on total weighted marks obtained by a candidate.
In case of a tie, it will be resolved based on weighted marks in Mathematics, then on weighted marks in Analytical Ability & Logical reasoning and then on weighted marks in Computer Awareness.
In case the tie is not resolved by the criteria stated in the above paragraph, then it will be resolved by age i.e., in favour of older candidate.
Ranks secured by candidates in the NIMCET 2021 test will be made available in the website
