Admission Rules and Procedure

Admissions to the courses of study referred to in SECTION I are governed by the relevant provisions of the University of Allahabad Act 2005 and the first ordinance made under section 29(2) of University of Allahabad Act 2005.

In the case of such candidates as may be exempted from the Admission Test, the Standardized Score, for any subject shall be calculated, for the denominator of 300, on the basis of the marks obtained in such subject in all the Parts of the Three-year Degree Course examination taken together.

The marks obtained by the candidate in the Admission Test for M.A./M.Sc. in any subject (on the denominator of 300) shall be his Standardized Score for such subject in general. However, for admission in M.A./M.Sc. in Statistics, the marks obtained in the Admission Test for Mathematics shall be the Standardized Score for a candidate who has passed the Graduate examination with Mathematics but without Statistics.

The marks obtained in both the subjects in the M.A./ M.Sc. Admission Test shall be converted to the Standardized Score by summing up the marks obtained in test in the two subjects and calculating standardized score on the denominator of 300. Such standardized score will be used for calculation of merit for admission to M.Sc. Computer Science, M.Sc. Applied Geology (Earth & Planetary Science Deptt.) as well as in the case of the Non-subject category and for admission to Hostels. When two candidates secure the same Standardized Score, inter-se merit shall be decided on the basis of the total marks obtained by the candidate at the Graduate examination after excluding the marks obtained in the Practical Examination. If there is a tie once again, the same shall be decided by draw of lots.

The total of the marks obtained in both the subjects in the M.A./ M.Sc. Admission Test as calculated for a denominator of 300, shall be the Standardized Score of the candidate for the M.A. subject, as well as for M.A./M.Sc. in Defence Studies, for which he/ she is a Non-subject candidate and for M.Com. In case, in the circumstances referred to 1.4 of SECTION I, the candidate has appeared in the Admission Test in a single subject, as marks obtained by him in such single subject, as calculated for a denominator of 300. In case the candidate is required to appear in two subjects in the M.A./M.Sc. Admission Test but has appeared in only one subject, for the calculation of his Standardized Score under this Rule, it shall be deemed that his score in the second subject, in which he did not appear, is zero (0).

The Computed Marks of all candidates (who have appeared in the Admission Test), for each subject of M.A./M.Sc, and for M.Com.. shall be determined in accordance with the procedure laid down in paragraph 2.5 of this section. Admission shall be made in each subject and in M.Com up to the limit of seats available in the same, in the consolidated order of merit of Computed Marks, but admission shall be granted to candidates of Special Categories (such as. Non-subject candidates. Arts and Science graduates for admission in M.A./ M.Sc. Anthropology, Outstanding Sports persons, Physically Challenged, etc.) only up to the maximum limit (ceiling) of seats assigned to each such category, Separate orders of merit shall be drawn for unreserved (General) seats and for reserved seats for the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and other categories for which reservation is applicable. The candidates eligible for admission under the Special Consideration specified in paragraph 2.6 of this section shall be granted admission irrespective of their place in the order of merit list but without exceeding the prescribed ceilings in that regard.
