To prepare the merit list for ranking candidates, certain factors are kept in mind. One of it is
- marks obtained in the written test
- number of candidates applying,
- number of seats available,
- highest marks obtained by the topper,
- marks obtained by applicants in 12th,
- minimum eligibility criteria etc.
after that, a merit list is prepared in which candidates are shortlisted keeping such factors in mind. However, there is a possibility that 1 or more candidates received same marks, in such case, ranking becomes a little bit tricky. Well to maintain the fairness, a formula called Inter-se Merit is used by the institutes. This serves as the tie resolving criteria. Let us see it.
- Candidates making more attempts to pass qualifying examination (10th/12th/ GNM)
- Higher marks in said examination
- Age seniority

Carry your original documents. Arrange them in order in advance. If selected, you may also have to undergo a medical examination.
