Normalization of Marks

Until last year, MBBS / BDS admission in Tamil Nadu’s Annamalai University has been on basis of class 12 / QE marks. In such a case, marks of candidates undergo a normalization procedure. For MBBS BDS admission 2017-2018 this process may change since the introduction of NEET exam. However, just for reference, we have kept normalization process details intact below.

The marks obtained by the student in the relevant subjects in the qualifying examination conducted by various Boards or Authority are equated with the marks obtained by the students in the same subjects in the qualifying examination conducted by the State Board of Tamil Nadu by adopting the method of normalization.

Explanation:

Under the method of normalization the highest mark obtained by the students of various Boards in each subject will be equated to the highest mark obtained by the students of State Board in that subject and the relative marks obtained by other students in that subject will be determined accordingly.

Illustration:

If the highest mark secured by the student of State Board in Physics is 100 and the highest mark secured by a student of any other Board in the same subject is 90, both the highest mark will be considered to be equal to 100. If a student of the Other Board secures 60 marks in Physics when the first mark in Physics in the same board is 90, the 60 marks will be considered to be equal to 66.66 marks as arrived below:

(100 X 60) / 90 =  66.66%

After normalization of marks in the relevant subjects in the qualifying examination conducted by different Boards, the qualified students of different Boards will be merged into a common merit list.

In case of candidates who have qualified from National Boards such as CBSE and ISCE etc., the highest marks obtained by candidate at the National Level alone will be taken into consideration.

Method of Selection and Admission

Given here is the method of selection and admission considered by Annamalai University until last year. There are high chances that this process will now change because government introduces NEET exam as single medical entrance. Just for reference, last year’s method of selection was as follows.

Ranking made on merit on the basis of marks obtained by the eligible candidates in the science subjects in the qualifying examinations reduced to the base of 200 marks. The marks obtained through different boards taken into account after normalization.

Calculation

Weighted Total Marks for a maximum of 200
Percentage in Biology (after normalization) (X)
Percentage in Physics and Chemistry taken together (after normalization) (Y)
Percentage in Botany and Zoology taken together (after normalization) (Z)
Weighted total marks for a maximum of Either (X+Y) OR (Y+Z)

The percentage and the weighted total accurate to two decimals.

Ranking of the candidates done based on the total marks obtained in the science subjects after normalization of marks computed to a maximum of 200, as given in the table above.

The marks obtained in the science subjects in the HSC qualifying examination as a whole in the first appearance alone taken into consideration for the allotment of seats to the candidates and the improvement marks in +2 examinations of any year not be considered. Also the marks obtained through part by part appearance in +2 examination not be considered including for native of Tamil Nadu who passed any other equivalent examination from other boards/states.

Determination of Rank of Candidates who have Obtained Equal Marks (Inter-Se Merit)

In cases, where two or more candidates obtain equal aggregate marks for 200, the rank of such candidates determined on the basis of the following order, namely:

  • Percentage in Biology or Botany and Zoology taken together in +2 examination.
  • Percentage in Chemistry in +2 examination.
  • Percentage in Fourth optional subject in +2 examination.
  • Date of Birth – weightage will be given to seniority in age.
  • Computerised random number assigned. (Higher value will be given preference)
